Hello Muhammed Ashique !!
I assume that a car is well maintained and you have followed the manufacturer subscribed service schedule. You should not worry the least while travelling in the Toyota Fortuner, the car is more than capable to do such long journey. However, pack well and make sure that you plan your trip and stopages to avoid inconvenience of any sort. Reading online tips for long car journey and travel plans would help too.
I have driven my old Maruti Zen, 20 years ago (imagine old times Indian roads) multiple times from Chennai-Tvm, Chennai-Mumbai-Jaipur, Bangalore-Pune-Mumbai and several ther routes of 500-600Kms enumerous number of times. Sometimes I suspect, if these kind of questions are real or faked by the portal itself! Its actually not about the size of the vehicle, its about the driver's abilities and the maintenance of the vehicle. I seriouly cannot imagine a person whos even thinking of buying a Toyota Fortuner, can have such a question.
Toyota Fortuner is an innovative car with updated technology. I bought it last year have gone for long drives and travels, it has performed very well with minimal servicing. I stay in Bangalore and I get 8 Kmpl in the city and 13 Kmpl on highway. The seats are comfortable and spacious. It has sturdy but classy look which will get many envious on the road! You will have a convenient travel in Toyota Fortuner for sure.

I have been using Toyota Fortuner since last 13 months and I agree with the above answer, the car will provide a comfortable travel. The security features are updated, the interior and exterior is amazing. There is almost no noise of the engine inside. This will make your drive relaxed. The steering wheel is sharp and provides a good grip. This will ensure you don’t feel stressed or exhausted for a long travel. The fuel capacity is also above average.

Distance between Mysore to Mumbai is around 1050 km. Toyota Fortuner is provided with a very powerful engine of 3 litre capacity and depending upon the variant you own, it has some of the top safety measures which makes it a perfect car to make a long trip like this one. Handling and stability of this car are very well proven. As mentioned by team in previous answer, while going for such long trips, you should take short brakes after some time interval to avoid any inconveniences and car should be well maintained for such trips.

"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. "
