The Fortuner is Toyota’s hardy body-on-frame SUV. A car that has always been at the top of its class, the original was introduced in 2009, with a face lift appearing in 2011. But while the Fortuner was sold in both four-wheel-drive guise and later as an automatic, the combination of the two, a four-wheel-drive auto, hasn’t been put on sale: until now. Toyota Fortuner is now coming with an intelligent drive select system. From which the car can be easily converted into a luxurious 4×4 off road vehicle.
The Innova-based steering wheel, dials and air-con controls, however, are still carried over, and the touchscreen audio/navigation system still looks like an after market fitting.To match the exteriors, Cabin is fitted with double stitched black leather seats, the new insides look sportier. Otherwise, the cabin remains the same. You are sat a bit high, but the seats are comfortable and space is good. The Fortuner is primarily more rough and tough SUV that just so happens to offer for seven seater SUV.
