Descent set of safety features

Ample boot space

Elegant looks

Toyota Fortuner

Compared to the previous generation Toyota Fortuner which looked boxy and a bit dated, the new Fortuner definitely manages to command a second glance with its new and contemporary design. While the front looks much sleeker and fresher than before, the heightened stance from side profile as well as rear still manages to retain the muscular appeal of the SUV.

The Fortuner manages to retain the extra-large appeal on the inside as well, with all the seven seats offering great levels of comfort and space. Even the third row of seats do offer a decent amount of legroom and knee room for taller passengers.

The Toyota Fortuner has been blessed with a very capable four-wheel-drive system, which enables the SUV to tower over the worst of road conditions with great ease. The high ground clearance, as well as a stiffer suspension system, do complement the four-wheel-drive system very efficiently.

Toyota Fortuner

While the Toyota Fortuner looks butch and very luxurious from the outside, the same cannot be said about the interior cabin. It lacks the level of luxury which one expects from a vehicle of this size and price, with the lack of a number of crucial premium comfort and convenience features further souring the deal.

The seats do offer excellent levels of comfort, however, the ride quality doesn’t complement them well to impart a pure comfortable experience to the passengers inside. The bouncy ride quality, especially over rough surfaces, is a bit of concern.

While the powertrain of the Toyota Fortuner feels powerful on the go, it tends to get noisy as soon as revs increase. Also, the relatively low fuel efficiency too is not something which can be called praiseworthy.
