Which one to choose between a Ford Endeavour and Toyota Fortuner?

Fortuner is the entry level SUV in the Indian market and has seen massive fan following. It has totally redefined the standards in the segment. Despite being the latecomer in the class it has given a very tough competition to the previously reigning champs. And this is mostly because of its beastly looks. The car has the standard Toyota front grille which is flooded with chrome. An air scoop on the bonnet makes it looks more aggressive. A more than decent ground clearance gives it a tall riding stance and makes water waddling, boulders look puny. The car looks bigger than the endeavour but it isn't, the third row seating can be cramped for adults. Features include all, a touch screen system, steering mounted controls, rear parking camera, two airbags, ABS with EBD. The aspect where it lacks is that despite producing 169bhp and 343Nm of power and torque the car is not that fast off the mark and that is because it weighs close to 2 tons. The efficiency is also low 12.55 kmpl for the very same reason. But these just does not lower its sales and makes it the highest selling car of this segment due to the trust of Toyota and its reliability and also service quality and commitment.
There is close combat between these two SUV i.e. Ford Endeavour and Toyota Fortuner but if you compare these cars then you will find that Ford Endeavour is slightly dominating in overall profile as Ford Endeavour comes with better fuel economy, much quite engine, spacious cabin and finally low cost of ownership as maintenance is low as compared to Toyota Fortuner. According to my fact and figures buyer with Ford Endeavour are more satisfied then having Toyota Fortuner because this SUV is simply worth of it.
