By: Rupesh on 7 august 2014
Land Cruiser is way ahead than that of Fortuner in all parameters. Starting from features to the image created, there is lot of difference betwenn the two. In present trend, New Fortuner costs around 20 to 22 lakh and Land cruiser costs more than 1.4 Crore. Hence its almost un comparable. However when it come to used car, Land cruiser of 15 years oldis available in around 20Lakhs range. Hence considering overall factors, if you are looking for owning a new car with impressive features then Fortuner would be ideal selection.

The Land Cruiser and Fortuner, both are the pioneer and popular brands from Toyota. Both have got their paramours. Land Cruiser is definitely a great SUV, but its high price i.e. around 1.2 Cr. is deterrent for many and that's why they search for the same in the second-hand market. If you are getting the land cruiser at the price of a new Fortuner i.e. around 28 Lakhs; you can undoubtedly go for it. Keep in mind to get this second-hand cruiser checked by some expert mechanic or take some test drives for a day or two before making any final decision.
Land Cruiser is unmatched when we talk about the real 4X4 SUVs. However, I think that the price is much higher than that it should be. I think Fortuner can easily handle every terrain that an average Indian can take her to. There is no point in spending so much money on a second-hand car even if it is a cruiser. New Fortuner has a wide, bolder look and fully equipped interiors and an option of an automatic gearbox. I think it ticks all the points a practical SUV really needs.
