Japanese manufacturers are known for their reliability. This is one of the reasons that Toyota vehicles hold their vehicles better than other vehicles. We have seen Toyota Qualis that has covered more than 8 lakh kilometres and an Innova that has covered more than 6 lakh kilometres. Well, here is another Innova that has covered more than 10 lakhs kilometres on the odometer. The picture has been shared by Anaamalais Toyota, Kerala. The picture clearly shows the vehicle and its odometer.
Usually, we see yellow plates on vehicles that have covered such lakhs of distances. However, this Innova belongs to a private owner. So, this is quite commendable of the owner to have covered more than 10 lakh kilometres and maintain the vehicle alongside.
Speaking of the vehicle, it is a 2007 model of Toyota Innova. It was registered in July of 2007. So, it is a 14-year-old vehicle and it is registered in Tamil Nadu. Because the picture was clicked last year if we calculate the vehicle covered almost one lakh kilometres per year. We do not know for what purpose the Innova is used as 10 lakh kilometres for any vehicle are too much. That is why we usually see such lakhs of kilometres on taxis who cover interstate distances a lot.
This vehicle belongs to Velmurugan V who is still the first owner of the vehicle and this Innova is still going strong. Because the odometer is of old technology, it cannot go beyond 9 lakh 99 thousand 99 km. Even in the used market, you would be able to see a lot of examples of Toyota Innovas’ that has covered around 5 lakhs on the odometer.
This Innova is a solid testimony of Toyota’s reliability. Especially, the durability of the engine is shown by this Toyota. It uses a 2.5-litre D-4D diesel engine that was also used on the Fortuner earlier. The engine produced 100 PS of max power and 200 Nm of peak torque. It was offered only with a 5-speed manual gearbox. There was also a 2.0-litre petrol engine available alongside the diesel engine.
When the Toyota Innova was first introduced in the Indian market, it was priced at Rs. 7 lakhs. However, now the base variant of the Innova starts at Rs. 16.52 lakhs ex-showroom. That is an increase of Rs. 10 lakhs but this has not reduced the popularity of the Innova. Innova is still the most popular MPV in the Indian market. It is still one of the best sellers for Toyota.
There are numerous reasons for Innova being the best selling MPV in the Indian market. It is spacious, durable, reliable, comfortable and has a solid build quality. Even Bollywood stars and politicians use the Innova. Amitabh Bachchan got the latest Innova Crysta delivered to him in December last year when the facelift was launched.
The Innova Crysta now starts at Rs. 16.52 lakhs for the base variant and goes up to Rs. 24.59 lakhs for the top-end variant. It is offered with a 2.7-litre petrol engine or a 2.4-litre diesel engine. The petrol engine produces 166 PS and 245 Nm whereas the diesel engine produces 150 PS and 360 Nm. Both the engines are offered with a 5-speed manual gearbox or a 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox.
