Toyota has launched its new Fortuner in Malaysia for Rs 30.99 lakh (187,000RM). It is being offered with one petrol and diesel engine option both mated to a six-speed AT. This is the second generation for Toyota’s D-segment SUV and now comes with a revised design as well as feature list. The petrol model has been priced at Rs 33.16 lakh (199,999RM).    

 

The petrol engine is a 2.7-litre producing 163bhp and 245Nm of torque. It now gets dual VVT-I technology and is mated to a six-speed AT complete with paddle shifters. The diesel on the other hand, is the 2.4-litre unit (now available in India with the Innova Crysta) that produces 150bhp and 400Nm of torque. This too gets the six-speed AT and all-time AWD.

This new Fortuner has become longer, wider and more luxurious than the outgoing model. Noticeable design elements include chrome heavy grille, scythe-shaped headlights and LED lights for the top-spec models.  The trim list is similar to what we have seen on the Innova Crysta and includes bits like power seats, climate control, touchscreen infotainment system, leather upholstery and a host of driving aids like traction control and ABS with EBD. The petrol variant is a higher-spec model than the diesel and gets most of the above mentioned features as standard.

The vehicles are assembled in Thailand and exported to various countries around it. In the Indian context, this is an important car as it is pretty much the leader of the D-segment thanks to its large sales volume. It is one of the pillars on which Toyota gains its volumes and we believe that they will introduce the car in 2017 but not hike prices too much to ensure that the Fortuner stays competitive.
