The Vellfire is a no-nonsense luxury MPV

Verdict – The Toyota Vellfire doesn’t pretend to be anything its not, no fake SUV elements and no beating around the bush. It promises space, comfort, luxury and delivers head-on. At an expected price of Rs. 90 lakh, it lands itself against the Mercedes V-Class. Now, we understand the Indian market and its obsession with luxury badging, but remember Toyota might just be more economical to maintain. So, if you are in the market with that amount in your pocket for a spacious family mover, the Vellfire deserves a chance, it might just blow you away.
