Introduction and Exterior

When the Fortuner was first launched here eleven years ago, there was the general question of “why?”

When the Fortuner was first launched here eleven years ago, there was the general question of “why?” But eleven years on, the new Fortuner soldiers on. Like the original car, a 2.7 litre normally aspirated engine sits in the engine bay, but now with an improved Dual-VVTi head.

Exterior

While overall dimensions are close to the original car, Toyota has made efforts to keep styling up-to-date. With the styling tweaks, there visually seems to be more frontal overhang, casting a more front-heavy silhouette. The new front headlamp lenses contain LED daytime running lights, and meet with the chrome front grille. The front bumper houses a pair of fog lamps, with a thick chrome surround.

The Fortuner’s side profile features more fluid sculpting, with upward-flowing sheet metal beginning at the rear door, raising the shoulder line from the C pillar onward.

Rear tail lamps are now sleeker and less truck-like, and like the front, feature some neat nips and tucks.

A front disc, rear drum setup is held up by 265/60R18s, and wheel clearance is just about Toyota HiLux high, which the car is based on. Wheel arches are now accented by subtle black plastic strips, which flare out slightly, compared to the thick body-coloured mouldings which adorned the previous car.

SwiftQuote was swift in quoting a price for my car! It was the highest scrap value that I checked around. After bringing the car to the dealer, the whole process took less than 10mins. I was impressed! Thank you, SwiftQuote!
