The Toyota Fortuner has been one of India’s most loved big cars in the last decade. It first went on sale in the country in 2009 and it was in 2016 that the Japanese carmaker presented the SUV in a brand-new generation, surprising many with the design and the features it came with. More than 4 years later the Fortuner has finally got another upgrade. The facelift of the SUV has arrived on our shores and the changes are not just superficial but, in the heart, too. The grille is new and has become bigger while the LED projector lamps now come with different looking DRL’s and are sleeker than before. The fog lamps too have become smaller while the bumper has changed too, and you also get silver skid plates. Both the front seats are now ventilated and electrically adjustable and the good thing is that it's standard across the range. The 8.0-inch Smart Playcast Touchscreen Audio is new and is compatible with Android Auto and Apple Carplay. The 2.8-litre 4-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine now makes more power and torque than before. You get a little over 200 brake horsepower and 420 Nm of peak torque on the 6-speed manual that kicks in fairly early at 1400 rpm and stays till 3400 rpm. On the Automatic, you get a healthier 500 Nm from 1600-2800 rpm. For better grip specially on slippery surfaces the SUV now gets Auto Limited Slip Differential or LSD that means you get maximum power without breaking traction. And that’s not all a lockable differential is there too which will help you in getting out of extreme situations in a better way. Shams Naqvi drives the SUV.
