Ever since Toyota stepped in the premium SUV segment with the Fortuner, it has ruled the roost and how! .At the 2012 Auto Expo in New Delhi, the company announced the new models (4x2 MT, 4x2 AT, 4x4 MT) along with changes to the exterior as well as interiors. At 4705mm in length, 1840mm in width and 1850mm in height, the new Fortuner might be smaller than the Ford Endeavour and the Mitsubishi Pajero, but at the same time, it is much wider than both the rivals and this is what gives the Fortuner massive road presence. Additionally, it also has a class leading ground clearance of 220mm, giving it that ‘high’ feeling. The new Fortuner improves on the previous version in the way it looks from almost all angles.

The new 2012 Fortuner gets a Land Cruiser type front-end while simply put, makes it look stunning!rnClimbing into the Fortuner, the first thing that sets the mood for changes to come your way are the sporty pedals – they simply look fab! Next, the steering wheel is new (similar to the one found on the top end Innova though) and feels good to hold. It also houses the usual buttons for various functions including audio system, Bluetooth connected phone and multi-information display. Shift your attention to the central console and you see the new touch screen double-DIN head unit that also has DVD player and USB / Bluetooth connectivity. It also doubles up as a display for the reverse camera..... read more

Toyota Fortuner Back Seats

The changes to the new 2012 are not limited to the exterior. Before stepping in, or rather climbing into the Fortuner, the first thing that sets the mood for changes to come your way are the sporty pedals – they simply look fab! Next, the steering wheel is new (similar to the one found on the top end Innova though) and feels good to hold. It also houses the usual buttons for various functions including audio system, Bluetooth connected phone and multi-information display. Most importantly, the faux wood finish on the upper part of the steering wheel simply wins the heart – it looks great and feels better when held.

The second thing you notice is the new instrumentation cluster which is finished with a blue back-drop: looks majestic at night! Shift your attention to the central console and you see the new touch screen double-DIN head unit that also has DVD player and USB / Bluetooth connectivity. It also doubles up as a display for the reverse camera. The first thing I do when I get into a new vehicle is get into a comfortable driving posture and this is where I found the 6-way electrically adjusted seat being a boon for me – this is something that most rivals lack in this segment. Look around and you notice that the classy faux wood finish treatment has been applied to the power window switches as well as around the two central air-con vents on the front fascia.

The Fortuner retains the spaciousness on the inside and can seat seven well built adults in comfort. The seats are supportive and comfortable and the list of creature comforts makes sure you are pampered well. Even with all the three rows in place, there is decent space for a couple of medium sized bags.

What we like
New features and lots of space are the plus points of the Fortuner
What we don't like
Looks too much like the Innova's interior

At 4705mm in length, 1840mm in width and 1850mm in height, the new Fortuner might be smaller than the Ford Endeavour and the Mitsubishi Pajero, but at the same time, it is much wider than both the rivals and this is what gives the Fortuner massive road presence. Additionally, it also has a class leading ground clearance of 220mm, giving it that ‘high’ feeling. The new Fortuner improves on the previous version in the way it looks from almost all angles. The new 2012 Fortuner gets a Land Cruiser type front-end while simply put, makes it look stunning! Our test car came in white and surely had all its new curves and design flaunting in the winter morning sun.

The headlamps (they get HIDs too) are protruding and along with the massive chrome splash on the chrome and the bigger hood scoop, lend a modern design touch to the way it looks. The bumpers are also new and the front one gets a bigger air-dam for better engine cooling. Seen side on, you notice the slight change made to the wheel arches and also the new multi-spoke (12 spokes to be exact) alloy wheels. The side steps are also changed and now are of the ribbed variety. At the rear, it gets clear lens type tail-lamps as well as other subtle changes like integrated reverse camera etc. In all, these changes go a long way in making the huge SUV modern, chic and pleasing to the eyes. Toyota says the new Fortuner is also available in two new colors – shade of silver and gold.

What we like
The Fortuner has massive road presence.
What we don't like
Rear tail-lamp design not to all taste
  • Toyota Fortuner Side View
  • Toyota Fortuner Tail Lights
  • Toyota Fortuner Rear View
  • Toyota Fortuner Wheel

Exteriors Details

Front design

Fortuner the new SUV gets Toyotas signature grille, logo and other family design elements. The changes made in the front gives it a fresher look. The wide grille has a lot of chrome on it with many slats

Rear design

A new chrome bar steals the show from rear. On tailgate FORTUNER is embossed on the thick band.

Side profile

On the sides, 17 alloy (aluminum) wheels have been tweaked for good. The over fender and side step add a sense of sharpness to it.

Ground Clearance

The ground clearance is 221 mm which can handle any terrain.

One of the biggest strengths of the Fortuner has been its engine. It makes use of the famous and ultra-reliable D-4D unit in a 3.0-litre format. On paper, it develops 169PS of power and 343Nm of torque which means it develops more power than its direct rival the 3.0-litre Endeavour though the latter puts out more torque. The new 2012 Fortuner is available in three variants with the same engine but two transmission options and both 4x2 and 4x4. Turn the key, start the car and the engine rests into a noticeable idle. The D-4D engine was never known for its smooth character though the overall NVH levels are superbly under control inside the cabin.On the move, the Fortuner feels very eager.

Torque flows from as low as 1400rpm and this is the reason why it picks up speeds in higher gears at lower speeds easily and effortlessly. Out on the highway, the engine feels at home at an indicated 120-130km/h with enough juice left to shame quite a few expensive sedans.The bucket loads of power and torque means that off the road, the Fortuner is easy to drive in tricky situations. The 4x4 variant has both ‘H’ (high) and ‘L’ (low) modes and until unless you are a bad driver, it is hard not to take the Fortuner out of the messiest of roads and patches. With so much weight to lug around, expectedly, fuel economy isn’t its forte. However, we still got over 9kmpl easily in Delhi’s traffic with a few ‘fun’ moments thrown in as well.

The 4-speed automatic though robs the engine is around 10% when it comes to fuel economy, however, it is a great unit and takes away the load (mental and physical) away from shifting gears. Once again, the availability of power and torque means the engine is pretty responsive in the automatic variant and like other conventional automatics, this one too changes gears in accordance with the driver’s throttle inputs. The Fortuner also gets a cruise control function in the AT variant – a boon for open highways.

What we like
It develops more power than its direct rival the 3.0-litre Endeavour
What we don't like
Start the car and the engine rests into a noticeable idle, refinment could be better.

Diesel Mileage 13 kmpl

With so much weight to lug around, expectedly, fuel economy isn’t its forte. However, we still got over 9kmpl easily in Delhi’s traffic with a few ‘fun’ moments thrown in as well. The 4-speed automatic though robs the engine is around 10% when it comes to fuel economy. So expect 7-8 kmpl in traffic, the 4x2 model is the most efficient of the variants.

Diesel Variants
Toyota Fortuner 2WD MT 13 kmpl
Toyota Fortuner 2WD AT 12.55 kmpl
Toyota Fortuner 4WD MT 12.55 kmpl
Toyota Fortuner 4WD AT --

Toyota Fortuner gives 14.5kmpl on higway and 9.5kmpl in city traffic, whereas it gives 10.75kmpl overall.

In cities Toyota Fortuner gives the mileage of 8 kmpl approx.

Highway fuel economy

while on highways its Mileage is 12.5 kmpl in the Fortuner approx.

ARAI rated economy

As specified by ARAI the mileage of the Fortuner is 9.12 Kmpl.

Tank Range

Fuel Tank Capacity is 80 liters so the tank range of Fortuner is 720kms approx.

You simply can’t expect the Fortuner to ‘handle’ well at high speeds given its high center of gravity yet, drive it in a spirited manner and it responds well. Toyota had added VSC (vehicle stability control) on the 4x4 MT model which adds to the confidence factor while driving the vehicle fast in tricky road conditions. This function can also be switched off for those who don’t like their driving being intervened by electronic gadgetry.While the first and second row passengers get pampered well, it is the third row occupants who get thrown around expectedly. This is mainly due to the body on ladder chassis and a small pay off for being a true blue off-roader.

What we like
Handles well for its size
What we don't like
Has body roll

Handling Braking & Safety Details

Handling

Car is having power steering and ABS with EBD thats why the car has got four stars for the handling which is quite good after being a bulky SUV.

Traction control

Big burly SUVs are meant to fly past bad roads and pot-holes, right? Actually, it is SUVs like Fortuner which do justice to the above mentioned statement. Huge tyres, 220mm of ground clearance and soft suspension means that Fortuner is a comfortable companion over all types of roads with the only issue being the slightly bumpy ride over bad roads at low speeds. This vehicle is not meant to be slowed down for bad roads – drive it this way and you will simply love the way the Fortuner handles. Steering effort isn’t really very light though at the same time, it didn’t give us a chance to complain even at crawling speeds. While the first and second row passengers get pampered well, it is the third row occupants who get thrown around expectedly. This is mainly due to the body on ladder chassis and a small pay off for being a true blue off-roader.

What we like
Huge tyres, 220mm of ground clearance and soft suspension means that Fortuner is a comfortable companion over all types of road
What we don't like
The only issue being the slightly bumpy ride over bad roads at low speeds.

Comfort & Suspension Details

Comfort

The car has got four stars for the comfort which also shows its ergonomics level.

Front suspension

The newly developed double wishbone front suspension with a high mount type upper arm offers exceptional ride comfort

Rear suspension

2WD Toyota Fortuner version is equipped with non-independent rear suspension while the 4WD model has 4-link with lateral rod rear suspension that enhances the handling capacity and reduces jerks to a great extent which results a comfortable riding experience.

Pros GREAT LOOK, VALUE FOR MOMEY

Cons LITTLE MORE THINGS NEEDED....

Hi! Had test drive....very good car. value for money you can feel when you sit inside the car... I felt there is some more things is needed immediate attention.1.there should be a sun roof. 2.gps receiver.3.video for back sear 4.reverse sense visible. presently only audio. The vehicle feel is very good on road.4x4 always.good idea. The best thing i felt about the car is there is only one model. How nice. It should be like that. I basically do not like variants.I can write lot more but i need to take the vehicle for a long drive to experience the full power. with the test drive (10mts) i can give only this much. There can be lot more things can be added to this car. ALL THE BEST....
