Verito was a capable car but it needs to upgrade time to time to rival with its competition which sees the maximum action in its segment. Since this segment is Alien for Mahindra, they have no expertise & dedicated R & D team for it. So they didn't much with it.
But again this segment is too hard to ignore too. Once again A licensed body shell, a Frugal & refined engine backed up with good Development team can bring Mahindra back into action for this segment which came once with Mahindra Ford Escort, Mahindra Renault Logan. They're capable & understanding enough.
Congratulations sachins for your New Innova Crysta 2.8 GX.
Please write your ownership experience in dedicated ownership section along with detailed pics of its Interiors & other detailing.
Btw, Its now have been a month with your New Innova. Please do update on its fuel efficiency, its service cost details & any Interior updates. Since this GX variant doesn't come with a music system, so do update on which system you've opted for, Dual din Touchscreen or basic one.
Configured my newly installed Blaupunkt Coaxial speakers in my car with newly installed Pioneer MP3/USB/Aux/MIXTRAX Head unit.
Result being better sound output with improved Bass & sound output characteristics.
Why to upsize it !
185/65 isn't a slim tyre size for Baleno.
Generally lower variants of some Maruti Suzuki cars like Swift, Dhire, Vitara Brezza comes with better ride quality, reason being smaller sized rim & high profile tyres as compared to its top end version tyres. Similar thing I can expect for Baleno too, as I haven't driven its base Sigma & 2nd Delta variants. Swift & Dzire lower variants though suffers from very low road grip as they are having too slim 165 profile tyres as compared to its body dimensions.
I suggest you to wait to upsize & drive your car few days or weeks till you go for upsizing the tyres.
Btw, 195/60 R15 Yokohama tyres option to upgrade from 185/65 R15 tyres or Michelin tyres are the good options.
This car is perfect for Indian conditions & needs.
Toyota India should come up with this as early as possible with this car with 1.4 D4D Diesel & 1.2/1.5 VVTi Petrol for our market.
Btw, this car is having quite similar dimensions to Etios, Toyota can localize this car & share its dashboard with Etios twins which can give them the much needed change to boost its presence & sales.
