Fortuner

Wrapup

 Current leader in its segment, Fortuner has a very tough build, offers strong performance and holds onto resale very well. However, the ride is lumpy and stiff, and the engine could have been more silent inside the cabin. A fantastic off-roader, the practicality and low ownership cost are tough to beat. Its just that price tag has gone up a wee bit too high.

Quick Review

Toyota’s Fortuner has been ruling the Indian roads for quite a time now. With its massive road presence and a commanding charm, this mid sized 7 seater SUV managed to get all the attention from Indian SUV buyers since its inception. Introduced at the right time, the SUV fetish especially from bureaucrats, industrialists and businessman served as a perfect audience for the Fortuner. Introduced in 2009, Fortuner has undergone some tweaks in its latest generation. However, with a new 2016 variant on the cards, the current Fortuner still manages to entice a lot of Indian buyers ruling its segment. The current generation of Fortuner adapts a black sporty theme which is evident both on the inside and outside. Its smoked HID headlamps & taillamps now get much attention than ever. The popularity if this SUV has a lot to do with its aggressive front, embellished with a chunky three slat chrome grille housing the Toyota logo. The grille is neatly connected to the angular creases on the bonnet with an air inlet hood which adds aggression to its demeanor. The use of black comes into play on the front bumper with horizontal airdam fins and circular fog lamps all covered in black. Toyota has kept the use of cladding to a very minimum which further mellows its wheel arches on the side, giving way to the dark grey 17 inch alloy wheels. Fortuner is quite a looker especially from the side with its unique wraparound glass C-pillar that amalgamates with the rear windscreen. The chrome bar on the rear with Fortuner initials embedded seals the deal to give this SUV a unique character and road presence that can be felt from far away. To add SPORTS to the Fortuner, Toyota has thrown in fancy features such as big roof rails, body color skid plates, a tail spoiler and not just this, one can also upgrade this machine with Toyota’s accessory arm TRD offering nudge guards, side fender mirror and a host of other mods as well.
