I've heard a lot about this car (Toyota Fortuner), that handling is very poor, fuel consumption is high and suspension is stiff. I finally got a chance to test drive a friend's newly acquired Toyota Fortuner, surprisingly, I feel that fuel efficiency is better than my Alphard.
The interior is what I like best
Pick up is not that good, and the brakes... very poor brakes.
I had a 2009 Murano SL and I just loved its excellent handling. Now that I have the new 2011 SL model I couldn't be happier. It feels like it has a sports tuned suspension that it hugs the road. I do not have any issues with rear visibility the rear view camera is great. the traction control works great in rain and snow. I drive 40 miles a day to work everyday and I Drive the heck out of my Murano and enjoy all the comfort and gadgets and the safety.
I almost love all of its features specially the navigation bluetooth for streaming music and synchronizing it with my tablet works great, the bose sound system is just awesome.
