As we all know, Toyota has been quite good at making large MPVs and SUVs for a long time. Starting with the Innova and Qualis, and then improving them further down the line with facelifts and launching the Innova Crysta, Toyota has come a long way. But, now the Japanese brand is soon expected to take on Mercedes-Benz in the ultra-luxury MPV segment in India, with the launch of the Vellfire. The Toyota Vellfire will soon be taking on the Mercedes-Benz V-Class in the Indian market, however, these two vehicles almost cost around INR 1 crore on-road, which is why they fall in the ultra-expensive range and cannot be compared with any other cars. So, let’s have a look at how these cars compete against each other:
