2006 Toyota Innova V 2.0 petrol
A reliable and affordable family MPV. No wonder this is one of the top selling cars here
This car just suffered two minor accidents before.
The V version of the Toyota Innova is the top of the line model available here in the Philippines. It looks luxurious inside with wood trim and leather seats.
Honestly, in terms of performance, this Innova is so-so. Pick up and acceleration are pretty anemic. Although you won't really need a car with a powerful engine if you're just gonna use it here in Manila, because of the traffic almost everyday. This car is meant for people who preferred to be chauffeured.
This car is very comfortable. This is the only Innova with captain seats at the back. Seats are very comfy and legroom spaces are very generous. For me, it's actually a Toyota Previa or Toyota Alphard for people on a budget.
This is actually my late auntie's car. When she passed away 5 years ago (April 2010), her children actually decided to keep it. Since all of them are living abroad, this car is taken care of by the driver and househelp. They run the car every so often to go to the grocery, market or church. The car is only utilized fully when the children arrive here in the Philippines, which happens only once or twice a year.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
