Ever since Toyota launched the Fortuner in the Indian market, it has been a runway success, selling more units that any of the other SUVs in this price band. The reasons for this success are many - it looks huge,massive and muscular - just what we Indians need to drive to massage our egos! The new version looks so much better with changes to the front as well as the rear. Additionally, the Fortuner is very comfortable and spacious from the inside and comes with a very potent 3.0-litre diesel engine.Apart from gathering eye-balls on the road, the Fortuner also pampers the passengers very well. The new 2012 version is no different and with new variants added, the Fortuner's price range swells too, giving more options to new buyers. A 4-speed automatic is now on sale and so is a 4x2 version for reduced cost. Lastly, the Toyota brand name does help and the Fortuner can take years of abuse without an issue. It will take you places where other SUVs will fail while at the same time, it will make your adventure feel 'easy'. Sold in three trim levels with choice of 4x2 or 4x4 and manual or automatic transmission, the new Fortuner has easily raised the bar in this segment of premium full blown SUVs.
