New Toyota Fortuner vs Old Fortuner Model Comparison
Toyota has just revealed the new Fortuner in Thailand and it is quite a change. Do remember the Fortuner in its current generation has been continuing on for a long time and a facelift was due. Now the model has exactly got that. There are many changes which we will discuss but the main thing we want to talk about is the comparison of the new Fortuner vs the old one. Read on.
This is where the biggest changes are done to the new Fortuner and you can easily see them. In comparison to the old one the new Fortuner looks more aggressive with sleeker headlamps, bigger wheels and new tail-lamps. There is less chrome used on the new Fortuner. You will see the new LED headlamps with DRLs, the new grille and the new front bumper which is an extension of the grille. The way the new fog-lamps are designed and the way they are enclosed also looks sportier. There are also new 18inch alloys on the facelift Fortuner while the rear sees new LED tail-lamps. It looks sportier, younger and more premium.
The current Toyota Fortuner was a big improvement on the earlier generation with a much more luxurious interior. It had the luxury plus the premium feeling. However now that it has been around for some-time the new facelift one adds in much needed features. The faccelift Fortuner gets a larger 9 inch touchscreen infotainment system plus all the usual connectivity features including a 360 degree camera. There is more luxury too with dual power adjustable seats in 8-way plus wireless charging, ambient lighting, 9-speaker JBL Audio and more. Space is more or less the same.
The Fortuner with the 2.8l diesel gets a power upgrade now as the new one makes 204 bhp and 500Nm. That is a pretty big jump and gives the Fortuner better cruising performance while also making it quicker. The added performance should be appreciated by buyers. In terms of off-road all the things stay the same which means it is very good off-road as before.
New Fortuner India launch
The slightly bad news is that you have to wait a bit longer for the facelift Fortuner to get here. Toyota recently launched the BS6 model with the current one so it is unlikely it will launch the new Fortuner this year so it will be coming next year at best. We think overall the changes are more than enough to make the Fortuner retain its best seller status here. Let us hope it comes here as quickly as possible then!
