Now, like its rival, the Toyota Vellfire too will come to India as a Completely Built Unit (CBU) vehicle, so, we expect it to be priced somewhere in the range of ₹ 85 lakh to ₹ 90 lakh (ex-showroom, India). And considering what the car has to offer, and its target customers, that will be a pretty reasonable price tag.

The Toyota Vellfire is meant to be a chauffeur-driven car for top business executives, or celebrities, and movie stars. It is for those who like to get things done on the move, and in utmost comfort. So, what Toyota offers is a well-laid-out, luxurious cabin with electrically operable luxury captain seats, with sliding function, in the second row. Draped in leather interior, and the seats offer a bunch of different seating configurations, which can be accessed at the press of a button. There are small trays that pop out of the armrests along with cup holders, and a roof-mounted screen for the entertainment of rear passengers. The front seats are ventilated, and the driver has the option to adjust the co-passenger seat, moving it forward, liberating maximum space for middle-row occupants.
