Toyota Fortuner is one of the most versatile cars in India over the last decade, first sold in India in 2009, and in 2016 Japanese car manufacturers became an entirely new generation. The introduction of SUVs has surprised many people. Four years later, Fortuner finally found another upgrade. The development of the SUV is on our shore and the changes are not only limited, but also at heart. It’s not as strong as the new generation in 2016. But there are still many new points. Especially before. The grill is new and large, but LED lights with DRL installed look different and smoother than before. Although the bumpers have also been changed, the fog lamps are also smaller and you can now get a more attractive silver slide.
The SUV also gets a shiny black color. What stands out is that the new L alloy design is more attractive than before.Four-wheeled model is 18 inches smaller [18 cm] and two-wheeler model is smaller. At the rear, not much has changed, aside from the new LED taillights. The legendary type offered is a very robust grille, large bumpers, quad LED lights, sequential signaling, other alloy design, and a two-tone loop. Fortuner is 4,795m long, 1,855mm wide, 1,835mm high and has a wheelbase of 2745mm. Toyota is Ford Endeavor with MG Gloster. Both front seats are well ventilated, electrically adjustable, and the good thing is they’re popular across the entire range. Sound on the 8.0-inch touchscreen will be compatible with Android Auto and the new Apple Carplay. The interface could be improved and possibly larger in size. gum.
The SUV is also connected to car-first technology and has access to features like geo-fence, real-time tracking, and fixed grip. Referring to the seats, two color options – Chamois and Black. The 11-inch JBL speaker can only be used in 4WD variants, including the wireless charger provided by Leuality, a two-color black and sepia coating with ambient light. Both knees are flexible and have central armor and AC strip. But the sunroof still can not be an event for many people, there is no USB charging point, only a 12V charging socket. The second column omits something else. The third row of seats has two rows of seats, which fall and slide forward for easy access. However, sitting here for long distances can be especially difficult for adults.The power tailgate and memory performance are useful features, but the Legend also has a rock sensor.
Diesel engine option The 2.8-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder diesel engine produces more power and torque than before. With 200 hp brakes and 420 Nm of high torque, I do a six-speed manual clutch at 1400 rpm in the morning and keep climbing up to 3:400 p.m. Better for auto gear I drive. Here you have 500 Nm at 1,600-2,800 rpm. This is useful for vehicles weighing 2,600 kg. There are manual and automatic transmission with two- and four-wheel drive options. The automatic transmission also feels sophisticated. Compared with the front model.You can see that the torque switch sounds easy and the gear shift is quick and smooth.
Petrol engine fuel option is 2.7 liters. Four-cylinder fuel is available in options and automatic transmission, but there’s no 4WD option here. The engine has 164 brakes power and 245 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm. Hence, there are plenty of options for your driving options. Diesel can be selected in 3 total modes. Normal, sports. If you can’t get through the normal way, sport helps. Eco mode is for city streets only, here you can expect nothing but efficiency. The gas engine has two driving modes: Echo and power assist as before.
And that’s not all a lockable differential is there too which will help you in getting out of extreme situations in a better way. The 4×4 variants get both high and low range along with downhill assist control. The SUV has an approach angle of 29 degrees and departure angle of 25 degrees. A small off-road patch helped me realise some of that potential, but it surely promises to do much more.
The list of safety features is fairly long. Vehicle stability control, Hill assist control, rear parking camera, ABS with EBD, ISOFIX child seat mounts and 7 airbags are all standard. The SUV now also gets a front clearance sonar feature that will help you park better in tight spaces. The SUV has also scored a full five-star test rating in ASEAN NCAP crash tests.
Petrol variants are the most affordable of the lot starting at ₹ 29.98 lakh while the Diesel range starts at ₹ 32.48 lakh (all prices, ex-showroom). The 4WD models are priced from ₹ 35.14 lakh while the most expensive of the lot is the Legender at ₹ 37.58 lakh.
