Toyota Innova

The Qualis-replacement wasn’t just a huge gamble at the time of launch but also a change in direction.

Toyota Corolla Altis

There’s just no beating the Corolla in the way it retains its customers. Longevity of mechanicals and a plush ride makes it an easy segment leader. And while it’s not driver-focussed, if you’re looking for a chauffeur-driven car, the Corolla just fits the bill right. Add to that the fact that it will continue to perform as well as it does on day one.

Toyota Fortuner

Toyota Fortuner
