Taken Toyota Fortuner Testdrive in Pune

By Ashvin on 28 September 2009

1. TD taken in Pune
Positive -
-Build quality is good
-Design is subjective (People would love or hate the rugged look)
-Rear ac vents
-I have not driven it offroad but going by the way it goes over Pune potholes it is good.

Negatives -
-Noise, vibration comes through to the gear box, can you believe it? a toyota gear knob vibrating.
-Drum brakes (give me a brake toyota)
-No Power seats
-No Parking controls (i mean this is a huge car not easy to park)
-All parts on the dash look like the Innova, seriously. If you come out of a innova and get into the fortuner you wont feel much difference
- 3rd row seating is like a prison

I have also driven the Captiva (which my boss owns) and feel the the Chevy is much better in terms of value proposition. The only drawback is that the manual one is not a AWD and its more of a soft roader, however it does take on the potholes in stride just like the fortuner. I have done a lot of mumbai pune trips and the captiva is way too good even at speeds upwards of 140 the captiva
feels planted and raring to go even faster. The noise levels in the cabin are absolutely zero. The same cannot be said about the fortuner, at higher speeds the noise levels are very audible.

Not acceptable from brand toyota.

I am no expert in cars but whatever knowledge I have
I am sharing it with you.
