Toyota Fortuner 4x2 (MT & Automatic) : Test Drive & Review

Toyota Fortuner 4x2 (MT & Automatic) : Test Drive & Review

The 2012 Toyota Fortuner will be launched at the Auto Expo, January 2012.

What you'll like:

• New Landcruiser-esque face looks stunning
• Bulletproof reliability & durability. Built for abuse
• Excellent diesel engine. 169 BHP / 343 NM of torque
• Good spread of variants. AT is effortless to drive. 4x2 is relevant to the market
• Several new features have been added to the 2012 model
• Toyota's excellent after-sales service experience

What you won't:

• Merely a 4-speed Automatic. No tiptronic function either
• Automatic gearbox is not offered with the 4x4 gear
• Unsettled ride quality. Firm suspension gets bumpy over less-than-perfect roads
• Utilitarian rather than luxurious. Interiors are strikingly similar to the Innova
• Still no rear disc brakes! A missed opportunity on the facelift
