- The all-new Fortuner is Toyota India's second major launch this year
- The new Fortuner is based on the lighter & stiffer all-new TNGA platform
- The new Fortuner is available in both petrol and diesel engine options
The all-new Toyota Fortuner is a complete departure from its predecessor and is underpinned by the new TNGA platform. The new architecture has helped shed weight on the SUV, while also improving the ride and handling of the model. The styling is a lot more urban, moving away from the butch appeal, with the SUV boasting of sharp lines, slender headlamps with LED projector lights and LED DRLs. The rear gets wraparound LED tail lamps, while there is decent amount of chrome all over keeps the model premium. Here are 10 things you need to know about the all new Fortuner
That said, the large proportions continue to remain one of the USPs of the all-new Toyota Fortuner with the accentuated wheel arches and massive ground clearance making its off-roading capability evident.
Inside, the SUV gets a modern looking cabin and is fitted with premium materials all over including leather upholstered seats. The cabin is more spacious too, while the feature list is a lot more expansive and includes a touchscreen infotainment system with audio connectivity and navigation, ambient lighting, multi-function steering wheel with paddle shifters, automatic climate control, electric tailgate and a whole lot more. The SUV continues to offer three-row seating with the second and third row foldable, to make way improved cargo space.
Power on the 2016 Toyota Fortuner comes from both petrol and diesel engine options right from the start. Petrol power comes from a 2.7-litre four-cyinder engine that is tuned to churn out 164bhp at 5200rpm and 245Nm of torque at 4000rpm. The engine is paired to a 5-speed manual, 6-speed automatic (with paddle shift) transmission options and is available only in the 2WD version.
Diesel lovers will appreciate the 2.8-litre four-cylinder oil burner on the new Fortuner - shared with the Innova Crysta - and is tuned to produce 174.5bhp at 3400rpm and 420Nm of torque on the manual and 450Nm on the automatic versions, available between 1600-2400rpm. The oil burner is mated to a 6-speed manual and automatic transmissions and comes with the 2WD and 4WD options.
With respect to safety, the all-new Toyota Fortuner is loaded with tech including seven airbags, Vehicle Stability Control, Hill Assist Control, ABS with EBD, Downhill Assist Control (only on 4WD) and much more.The Fortuner has been the best selling model in the premium SUV segment and Toyota India certainly is looking to retain that position with the new generation version as well. With several new launches in this space recently, the all-new SUV will be locking horns with the Ford Endeavour, Chevrolet TrailBlazer, Hyundai Santa Fe and the likes in the segment. Bookings and deliveries for the new Fortuner commence from today across the country.
