Toyota Kirloskar India has just released a TVC saying that even after five years of use, Toyota cars hold up to 68 % of their original value. The value shows that even after years of ownership, the Toyota branded vehicles retain high value.

What does that mean and how are the Toyota vehicles maintaining such a high resale value?

There are quite a few factors in the Toyota vehicles high resale value. Here are a few reasons why even after so many years of ownership, Toyota vehicles retain such a high value.

Trust in the brand

Toyota India began operations in 1997, and people's carefree ownership stories have built confidence in the market over the years. There are numerous Toyota vehicles on the odometer with kilometer lakhs and still perfectly working on the road. This is something that has been built over the years, making the Toyota brand a trusted Indian market brand.

Bulletproof engines

Toyota offers extremely reliable engines, which is why most owners of car fleets choose vehicles from Toyota. The GD - Series 2.8-liter diesel engine is one of the world's best diesel engines. According to Toyota, the engines of the GD Series return a high thermal efficiency of 44 percent and the 2.8-liter engine powering the Innova and the Fortuner on the Indian market return an extremely good high efficiency of 44 percent. All of Toyota's engines are highly reliable and do not break down easily.

Price of new vehicles

In recent years, the price of Toyota vehicles has increased a lot. For instance, the price of the Innova Crysta's brand-new base variant is Rs. 14.83 lakh, ex-showroom, Delhi. The price on the road makes it quite high. This creates a significant demand on the market for used Toyota Innova, which in turn increases the vehicle's price.

Long ownership

Most owners of Toyota vehicles buy lifetime vehicles. Toyota vehicle buyers mainly keep the vehicle for a long time, creating a low supply on the used car market and increasing the vehicle's overall price.

Spare parts

The spare parts of Toyota vehicles are not a major problem in India, even though they are old and replaced. The spare parts can be purchased without much trouble, making it very easy to maintain Toyota vehicles even after years of ownership

Reliable service network

Toyota has built a trusted service network across the country over the years, giving buyers a sense of confidence. The wide service network and worry-free ownership experience induce trust in buyers even when buying used vehicles.
