Let’s throw some more light on the Toyota Fortuner Lounge. The SUV has been given such a treatment that from the inside it offers comforts as luxurious as a Rolls Royce Phantom. However the front facia is not that impressive but from the inside it can literary blow your head. The interiors now have been painted in blue and white. Usually a Fortuner easily accommodates seven people, but the Fortuner Lounge can carry just two passengers. The second and the third chair have been removed and instead have two huge 24-inch captain’s chairs. These seats are fully powered and can slant 150 degrees.

If you also want to customize your Fortuner to Fortuner Lounge then you need to splurge Rs 8.25 lakhs and make your Fortuner a luxurious wagon.
