Toyota has now officially revealed the New Fortuner on their Thai website. The pricing starts from Rs.15.65 Lakhs for base variant. I hope Archit can help us to understand rest of the feature details which are mentioned in their language.

As a Fortuner owner, the changes what I have noticed from the above pics are:

EXTERIORS
  • New headlamps with power washers
  • New grill
  • New front and rear bumpers
  • New bonnet scoop
  • New clear tail lamps
  • New ORVMS
  • New 17" alloy wheels
  • The rear spoiler and ski racks are the same

INTERIORS
  • The dashboard is the same only the colour scheme is changed
  • New steering wheel with addition of bluetooth calling steering buttons (its a direct lift from Corolla Altis)
  • Cruse control ( Previous international Fortuners did have this feature)
  • New instrument cluster
  • New electric seats
  • New ICE with navigation ( I guess this will also be the same unit which is there in newly launched Altis)
  • As per the specs its the same old 4 AT [frustration]


Engine specs remain the same with the same power output, hope they provide better sound insulation to the newer version.

Its just a cosmetic change, I wish they could have done some cosmetic changes even to the side profile also and most importantly they could have changed the design of the dashboard[frustration]

My above observation is based on the Toyota Thai website, I am not sure how many of the above features do come into the Indian model also the question of AT Fortuner is still unanswered, I assume that this model will be launched soon as Fortuner in India is still CKD from Thailand and most importantly "THE PRICE" I don't know how much TKM will charge for the facelifted model.

FYI: Fortuner in Bangalore as of now costs Rs.25,60,000/- (on road)

Thanks for pointing out the differences ram_4849. The existing model looks better to me. Wonder, if the re-sale value of the existing T-Fort, would go down, if they launch the newer version?

Thanks for pointing out the differences Ram! Even i like the current Fortuner more though the instrument console looks good in the new one. Let's wait and watch whether all these new features make it to India as well.
