Hold on to Toyota Innova diesel booking or wait for petrol-hybrid instead?

Toyota Innova Crysta diesel

I have booked a Toyota Innova Crysta diesel automatic in GX trim, and the car is expected to be delivered this October. I understand that a new petrol hybrid is being launched in India, and is expected to cost Rs 25.7 lakh on road. Should I cancel this booking and wait for the hybrid? Please suggest.

Autocar India says: Toyota has stopped taking orders for the diesel Innova, so you are lucky to get yours delivered this month. We are not sure what your usage is going to be, but if it’s long-distance driving, we suggest you hang on to your booking as the diesel version will be rare to come by. Also, the diesel Innova is one of the best highway cars offering strong performance, a smooth ride and unmatched reliability.

However, if you are mainly driving in the city, the new hybrid Innova, due to come out in November this month, could be a better option as it will offer excellent fuel efficiency, while being spacious and comfortable. It is likely to be priced considerably cheaper than the diesel Innova, but from what we understand, it won’t have the punchy performance of the diesel.
