After tremandous success of Innova, Though Toyota introduced this bit lately, there is superb response from the customers and high sales of indicate the demand for it. It features 2982cc engine delivering power of 171PS@3600RPM and Torque of 343NM in 4WD MT and 2WD MT variants and 360 NM in 2WD AT variant. Its impressive styling and very spacious interiors is what makes it choice of customers looking for a big image car. Toyota Quality and service senters availabile in all key places on city assure good service back up too. Hence worth buying the same.
The new Toyota Fortuner is a great SUV with the typical old school designing which I personally adore. It has the standard Toyota look but carries a more aggressive attitude. With its immense size it stands out and has an amazing road presence. The ground clearance is great which makes water wadding, boulders and other common issues written off on your hassle charts. Slush can be an issue obviously because of its weight. It offers all the features you would ext from any car in this segment such as the AC with climate control, leather seats, steering mounted audio control, electrically adjustable and retractable ORVMs, headlamp washers, 2-DIN music system with touch-screen display and rear parking sensors with camera. Space will never be an issue with the size of its cabin which offers ample sitting in all three rows. It also basic safety features like ABS-EBD, ESP and two airbags for the front passengers. It is one of the highest selling SUV for a reason. So I would totally recommend this car to anyone.
I am the proud owner of Toyota Fortuner and I drive its TRD Sportive version, which was launched recently. There are three trims in which this SUV is available. All the versions are powered by a 3.0L, D-4D diesel engine, which has the ability to unleash the power of 168.66bhp with a peak torque of 343Nm. I am quite impressed with the agility it has and its never yielding nature in any condition keeps it apart from the other SUVs. This vehicle features an automatic transmission system and due to that the torque output reaches to its highest mark of 360Nm. This trim has got all the features that its top end displays, It is extremely spacious from inside and hosts a seating for at least seven passengers. My family members appreciate its seats the most because they are very comfortable with sliding including reclining. They are covered with quality leather upholstery. But what impresses me the most about this SUV is its robust external appearance with intimidating front façade and masculine side profile. There is a three years or 100000 kms standard warranty offered with this car.

"I have a 2007 Toyota Fortuner 4X4 3.0 D4D and have increased the suspension height and am using bigger wheels. Recently the inner CV joint by the tripod broke and I replaced it with a genuine Toyota spare part. Soon enough, while reversing in a full circle towards left, I heard a click sound and after investigating I found that it had broken again. What can be the possible reasons for this breaking? I have checked the upper and lower control arm bushes, upper and lower ball joints, stabilizer bushes as well as have measured alignment of the front and rear wheels also. I still haven’t been able to find the cause for this breakage. Please share an insight regarding the same. "
