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 Hilux

The previous generations of Toyota Hilux have built up a huge stature for themselves when it comes to unshakable reliability, with tough build quality all over it. Thankfully, that very trait has been passed to this very version of the Toyota Hilux as well, with the current generation model possessing even tougher in feel body panels.

Compared to the previous generations of the Toyota Hilux which were blamed for not being modern and impressive in their looks in and out, the current generation model manages to solve that problem to a huge extent. The Hilux looks quite butch on the outside, and at the same time, the interior cabin layout shared with that of the Fortuner SUV give the Hilux some premium feel on the inside as well.

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.

Toyota Hilux

The 2.8-litre diesel engine in the Toyota Hilux feels powerful enough to make the pickup truck pass any grueling task with flying colors. However, when it comes to engine refinement, it definitely needs some massive improvement, as the engine sounds quite noisy even on the idle.

Another weak trait of the Toyota Hilux, as with most of the pickup trucks in the world, is the ride quality on smoother surfaces. While the Hilux’s four-wheel drivetrain makes it feel happy at home during off-roading, the same suspension and drive setup feels bouncy while driving on plush highways.
