Toyota Fortuner Review
Toyota has adopted a bold design language when designing the Toyota Fortuner, which translates in to butch styling and a very strong presence on the road. The Toyota Fortuner is also built with reliability and durability in mind whilst providing a spacious interior for its occupants. On the options front the Fortuner has Air-conditioning, Power Windows, Power Mirrors, Winker Mirrors, a Reverse Camera and multifunction steering. The latest models are offered with keyless entry, automatic projector headlamps, automatic dual air conditioning, electric seats and a touch screen infotainment system with voice control depending on the trim level you will choose.
On the safety department, the Toyota Fortuner scores quite adequately with inbuilt Dual Airbags, Vehicle Stability Control, Seatbelts with Pretensioners and force limiters for the front seats and ABS with Electronic Brake-force Distribution and Brake Assist. Toyota has employed a double wishbone setup in front and a four-link with lateral rod setup in the rear and coupled it with hydraulically assisted steering, which makes handling this mammoth SUV much easier across all terrains.
Top 10 Reasons to Consider When Buying a Toyota Fortuner
