For the record, the Vellfire luxury MPV was launched in the Indian market in February this year at 79.50 lakh (ex-showroom, India).

The overall fuel economy of this system has been rated at 16.35 km/l.

As far as its trim options and features are concerned, the luxury people mover is available in only a single trim - Executive Lounge. This model gets split LED headlamp featuring cornering function, LED rear combination lamps, 17-inch alloy wheels and plenty of chrome detailing all around.
