The Toyota Innova was introduced in India in 2005 replacing the Toyota Qualis as a more premium offering. It has been one of the top selling MPVs ever since with an average sales of around 5,000 units per month lately. While cars like the Maruti Ertiga, Honda Mobilio and the Renault Lodgy are available as more affordable alternatives, only the Ertiga has managed to keep up with the Toyota.
