Toyota Fortuner: Sturdy and hard breed crossover !!!!
Pros : Attractive looks and powerful engine
Cons : So – so interiors and low mileage
Hi, this is Raghvan from Vellore, I bought the sturdy and powerful, Toyota Fortuner an year ago and I am very satisfied with its performance so far. The car has extremely alluring looks that that can no doubt turn heads. The front long bonned with good facelift is one of the complimentary features of this potent machine. As far as the engine power of Toyota Fortuner is concerned, the 3.0 liter diesel engine is best in its class and has enormous power to crush even the tough conditions.
I shortlisted Toyota Fortuner and Mitsubishi Pajero, but I found the driving pleasure of Fortuner better than Pajero. Also, the driver’s seat comfort of Fortuner was much better than Mitsubishi Pajero. The only thing which this car lacks is good interiors. While sitting inside Fortuner, you will feel as if you are accommodating in Toyota Innova. Even, the console and dash trims of Toyota Fortuner are as same as Toyota Innova. Except the driver and co – driver’s seat, the leg-room space for the second and third row is slightly lesser than Pajero. One more complaint I have from this car is that of low mileage, I am getting mileage of 6- 7 kmpl in city and 9 – 10 kmpl on highways from my Fortuner but the competing crossovers churn more mileage.
My Toyota Fortuner is loaded with some enticing features like Climate Control, Height adjustable driver’s seat, Tyre pressure monitor, Xenon headlights, Driver and passengers airbag, Central Locking, Power Steering, Power Windows, Anti-theft alarm, Anti-lock Braking System, Electric adjustable Side mirrors, Rocking Music system etc. So far, I have enjoyed the ride with this car, therefore I will say go ahead and grab it, but the bottom line is, you won’t get the mileage which the company claims.
