Toyota can be accused of many things, but unfounded ambition is certainly not one of them. The new range of Toyota Fortuner ticks almost every possible box that a consumer could require. The manufacturer is no novice to the SUV segment, and observing how they continuously add elements of innovation to the overcrowded market is a wonderful experience. The well-known sport utility vehicle conjures up images of off-road versatility, strong performance, as well as space, and comfortability.
Toyota has added a new dimension to this space by incorporating touches of luxury and even opulence into its new range. It is a tactic that elevates what was already a more than satisfactory experience and ensures that the Toyota Fortuner still stands out even amongst a plethora of competition.
The architecture of the new Toyota Fortuner range is an image of authority and class on the road. Despite the silhouette of elegance that the vehicle gives, there is also the standard Toyota practicality. This is evident with the inclusion of auto-leveling LED headlights (available to all models in this range) and fog lamps. Models further on in the range additionally come equipped with rear fog lights.
Safety touches have not been withheld for the sake of stylishness. The exterior comes fitted with colour-coded side mirrors that are operated electrically and are retractable. A useful feature on some of the new models is the Blind Spot Monitor, which is an incredibly useful inclusion for all drivers.
The emphasis on safety is also present with the inclusion of LED-operated stop lamps that are extremely prominent. This ensures that your Fortuner is visible to approaching cars. There are also a variety of colours available for consumers to choose from. Toyota has added Oxide Bronze to the lineup as part of the new range.

An immediate standout when we peruse the interior of the new Toyota Fortuner is the black interior. The addition is again a reference to the stylish embellishments that the manufacturer has placed throughout the new range. The flagship VX models also come equipped with heated seats, whilst selected models come fitted with automatic dual-zone air conditioning.
Efforts have been made to ensure sufficient safety within the cabin itself with the inclusion of ISOFIX child seat anchors. There is also additional storage space provided in the instance that the driver needs to load and unload items. The convenience of drivers has also been wholly considered with the inclusion of the prominent Multi-Information Display, which is available in high definition.
Technological advancement is present with the inclusion of the Infotainment System which is compatible with Bluetooth and USB. A wonderful touch is a link to the JBL speakers, which further enhances the comfort of all passengers. A recognizable feature is the addition of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay functionality, which allows occupants to link their smart devices to the multimedia system.

Absolutely. Due to the sheer space available in the Fortuner for luggage and occupants, it can be viewed as a vehicle suitable for families.
It is. One of the most outstanding aspects of Toyota is the reliability factor. Its engine has been proven to be a lot more reliable than that of other manufacturers.
If the vehicle is maintained well, it will be able to last for up to 20 years.
There is undoubtedly a sense of grandeur that one feels behind the wheels of the new Toyota Fortuner range. It is a particularly poignant one for Toyota. The brand is founded on an ethos that includes reliability and safety, not often opulence. The smooth integration of an all-black interior and downright elegant exterior married with traditional Toyota performance is a wonder to observe. Truly, luxury on and off the road.
By comparison, the Ford Everest may be kitted out with similar tech and options, but there is not enough attention placed on the exterior modeling. A similar observation is true for the Mitsubishi Pajero, where the exterior has yet to be updated to represent a more modern feel.
