Toyota Fortuner 2018
The Toyota Fortuner has been dominating the global and local SUV segment for years

Be more attentive and you will notice a new “nose” and a longer hood on the Toyota Fortuner exterior. Blow by blow, the front profile is adorned with a revised grille holding a big “Toyota” emblem at the hub. Also, sophisticated headlights contribute “large sums” to the vehicle’s handsome face.

By and large, the Toyota Fortuner interior is among purified models in the class. By fair means, knocking car manufacturers of Japan out in aspect of luxury is a tough job. There is nothing to moan here: stitching, leather and even plastic. Particularly, faux wood at the centre console is truly impressive. It’s totally fake, yet it doesn’t look fake at all. This sets the Fortuner apart most of its foes in the automotive industry. Consummating its premium makeover are modern and legible gauges, a 3-spoke steering wheel and polished trim.

In-car infotainment system includes a 6.5” touchscreen integrated with DVD, CD, Tuner, Call Function System, Aux, Bluetooth connectivity, iPod and Auto Streaming with 6 speakers.
As to space, the new Fortuner is more spacious and comfy as well. It can sit comfortably seven people at once. The front seats can be adjusted automatically for right height and reach while the 2nd row (with center armrest), which is able to house up two passengers, provides enough legroom, even for high passengers. Nonetheless, you need to fold the armrest, so that people at the 3rd row can take a seat. Ingress of that row is a pushover and the legroom is likewise boosted. Notably, bringing a premium fell are cushions at important positions.

The said Fotuner – 2.4 V 4x2 AT is powered by a 2.4L inline-4 diesel engine which is able to muster 147 hp and 400 Nm of torque. Power is fed to the rear wheels through a 6-speed AT with sequential control. Grouping this SUV with other players, its total output is obviously not as comparable as its rivals. Still, the power plant exudes even, smooth acceleration and performance.

As per ride and handling, the new Fortuner, beyond question, is a talented sports utility vehicle. If ride quality of the first-generation Toyota Fortuner did let you down, the 2018 model tells a distinctly different story.
