From The Experts

  • Pros
  • Cons
Perodua Aruz

For a seven-seater compact MUVs which are usually styled conservatively, the Perodua Aruz looks very striking. The various styling cues like angular front fascia and rear profile machined alloy wheels, roof rails, and high ground clearance and some factors which are clearly inspired by that of a modern compact SUV, which makes it look quite rugged and very modern at the same time.

The seven seating configuration of the Perodua Aruz makes it one of the most flexible and practical cars of today’s time. The second and third row have multiple seating adjustments, which make it very convenient to ferry people and luggage at the same time,  which is not possible in a similarly priced five-seater compact SUV.

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.

Perodua Aruz

While there is not much to complain about the packaging and exterior styling of the Perodua Aruz, the fact that it is nothing but a rebadged Toyota Rush robs of the factor of exclusivity from this car. It would have been better if Perodua could have introduced some minute styling changes in and out, rather than just replacing the Toyota badge with that of Perodua, and nothing else.

While the exterior styling of the Perodua Aruz is exceptionally well and dramatic, the same can’t be said about the interior cabin layout. It would have been better if Perodua could have made the dashboard layout as contemporary and visually striking as the exterior design. The interior cabin layout looks a bit simple for a UV of this segment.

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.
