Toyota Fortuner Overview
The Fortuner has got a much needed makeover along with some changes to the interior as well as other internals. At 4705mm in length, 1840mm in width and 1850mm in height, the Toyota Fortuner is a what you call massive. It might be smaller than the Ford Endeavour and the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport, but at the same time, it is much wider than both the rivals giving it that unmistable road presence it carries. It has a huge ground clearance of 220mm making you feel the king of the road. The looks of the Toyota Fortuner have been improved in almost every way possible. It somewhat gets a Land Cruiser-ish front end which makes it look a segment above.
The changes to the Fortuner include the interior being re-furnished too. The sporty pedals look amazing while the steering wheel is new and feels chunky to hold. It houses buttons for various functions such as the audio system, Bluetooth and multi-information display. The faux wood finish on the steering makes the ambience in the interior a lot more plush. It has been generously applied to the power window switches and around the two central air-con vents and makes the whole interior smell of class.The central console features the new touch screen double-DIN head unit that also has DVD player and USB / Bluetooth connectivity. It is also the display for the reverse camera
The Toyota Fortuner is offered with only one engine option ie the much known 3.0-litre D-4D diesel unit. The engine develops 169PS of power and 343Nm of torque, enough to lug this huge chunk of metal. Transmission options are varied. The standard car features a 4x2 set-up with a 5-speed manual transmission as well as the 5-speed automatic. The 4x4 though features only a manual gearbox.
The Toyota Fortuner features ventilated disc brakes in the front and drum brakes at the rear. The car has Anti-Brake Locking System, Electronic Brake-Force Distribution and Brake Assist making it stop in the least possible distance. The car handles well for such a heavy car with such a high centre of gravity. The steering effort isn’t really very light though at the same time, it didn’t give us a chance to complain much. The Fortuner handles well for a car this size as well as with its high centre of gravity. It soaks up whatever the Indian roads throw at it, though the low speed ride is slightly bumpy and harsh especially over bad roads.
Toyota Fortuner Exterior
The looks of the Toyota Fortuner have been improved in almost every way possible. It somewhat gets a Land Cruiser-ish front end which makes it look a segment above.
The HID headlamps protrude nicely and the chrome on the hood scoop and grille give it the bling. The front bumper 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 alloy wheels. The side steps are also changed and now are of the ribbed variety. The rear gets clear lens type tail-lamps as well as an integrated reverse camera. In all, these changes go a long way in making the huge SUV modern and amazing to look at. The car is also available in two new colors – shade of silver and gold.
Toyota Fortuner Interior
The new instrumentation cluster is finished with a blue back-drop and looks amazing at night! The central console features the new touch screen double-DIN head unit that also has DVD player and USB / Bluetooth connectivity. It is also the display for the reverse camera. The 6-way electrically adjustable seat helps one find the best driving position. The seats are supportive and comfortable and the list of creature comforts makes sure you are pampered well.
As far as space is concerned, the Fortuner can gobble up seven well built adults in comfort while leaving room for luggage as well. Even with all the three rows in place, there is decent space for a few air bags. However, the third row with its knees-up seating posture, is good only for short drives.
The build quality on the inside is solid but the car doesn't inspire you or make you feel you're in the bowels of a premium SUV.
Toyota Fortuner Engine & Transmission
The new 2.7L 4-cylinder petrol engine makes 164bhp and 245Nm, while offered with 6-speed automatic and 5-speed manual transmission. The petrol variants are introduced with 4WD system but the top-end diesel variants do get the 4X4 drive system in the new Fortuner.

Toyota Fortuner Braking and Safety
Toyota has introduced VSC or vehicle stability control on the Fortuner 4x4 MT model which improves safety while giving the driver more confidence to push the vehicle to its limits in tricky road conditions. However, this function can also be switched off for those who don’t like to be checked by electronic nannies.
Toyota Fortuner Performance and Handling
Slot the gear and press on the throttle and the car lunges forward. On the move, the SUV feels very eager to perform and break into three digit speeds. Torque is well spread and the peak torque starts from as low as 1400rpm giving the Fortuner excellent drive-ability around town. It's an effortless car if you want to amble about.
On the highway, the Fortuner cruises at 130kph with more than enough power left in reserve to cross higher speeds. The 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 helping you handle tough road situations or rather road-less situations! It's with such ease and effortlessness that the Fortuner dispenses with the toughest challenge any conquerable terrain has to throw at it.
The Automatic version is simply a pleasure to drive. It does all the work for you and all you have to do is operate the pedals, steer the car and sip on some coffee. The massive power and especially the torque means that the automatic isn't a sluggish car by any means. The torque helps the car accelerate from almost any gear without having to downshift, although the transmission changes gears according to the heaviness of the driver's right foot. Not to mention that the Fortuner also features the cruise control function in the AT variant, a must have for those long highway trips!
So what's the USP of having an SUV in India. Well, the fact of the matter remains that roads in India can be easily considered to be off-road haven for some in the western world, and to deal with them on a daily basis you need a proper SUV with high ground clearance and a comfortable ride. It's the very ability of such SUVs to make speed without having to brake for pot-holes, bumps and undulations and still remaining calm and composed on the inside that makes SUVs such a requirement for Indians and Indian conditions. It's actually like taking your drawing room on a drive and with the same level of comfort!
However, the biggest issue by far in the Toyota Fortuner and for long has been the ride quality on low speeds, especially on bumpy or bad roads. But there is a way around the problem. Just don't drive slow! The car begs to be driven fast and trust us when we say that the suspensions and huge alloys wrapped in 265mm wide rubber can take most of the abuse you can ever throw at it.
The Fortuner handles well for such a heavy car with such a high centre of gravity. The steering effort isn't really very light though at the same time, it didn’t give us a chance to complain much. While the first and second row passengers get pampered well, it is the third row occupants who get thrown around unexpectedly. The 2WD Toyota Fortuner version is equipped with a 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 in a comfortable riding experience. Though you can never get rid of the body roll while cornering hard.
What do we think about Toyota Fortuner?
Toyota Fortuner Competitors
The Fortuner however trounces its rivals in class, exuberance, better road presence and not to mention Toyota's bullet proof build quality, service back-up and reliability. The Fortuner will be our pick out of the lot.
