The Toyota Vellfire will become yet another premium MPV to launch in the market. This a clear indication of the rising preference for MPVs amongst the local car buying lot. We had the Mercedes V Class Elite launching in November and will even have the Kia Carnival launch here as soon as next month.

In India, the Toyota Vellfire will be sold only in the Executive Lounge trim. It will come kitted out with features like electric tailgate, electric sliding doors, dual sunroof setup, three-zone automatic climate control, ambient lighting and individual tray tables.
