hey maybe, i did not pay attention to it then, as seats were covered with plastic which was all crumpled & bunched up. but even if its there, i just saw a couple of pics in which its shown but does not look to be very useful as its offset into the right seat, not centrally located so then again won't be of much use/purpose quite lost.
the reason why i dint like the fortuner is because the car's interiors & features are very much similar to the innova that i dont feel like upgrading to it. i mean, even the innova offers ABS, auto HVAC & dual airbags! what is in the fortuner that i should pay 10 lakhs more for it?
1) all time 4WD - which is a waste for me as i would never take a 20 lakh SUV off roading! also, it will penalise FE.
2) looks, styling & height - frankly, i am not too impressed with the looks. its got the size but not the styling. anytime, the captiva looks much better.
Exteriors looks are too good and this in a way increases the expectations from the car. I sat on the driving seat and highish Bonnet and lower seating position disappoints a bit. You don't get that "King of the Road" feeling you get in for eg: Scorpio.
2 tonne SUV + 3.0 litre engine + 265 section tyres + all time 4WD = low FE.
i dont think it will give 9 kmpl in city, my innova gives that much!
It must be best feature of Fortuner which unfortunately I could not check out and that is the Off-roadability. Well, lets hope that I get our own Fortuner soon soo that I can go for a good off-road adventure.. :)
Here are few of my observations about the fortuner:-
Engine & Gearbox - Noisy engine especially at starts & quite audible at speeds too, motor torquey & acceleration is brisk, basically rebored version of the Innova, wish this engine was available in the Innova!
yeah no armrest in centre of centre row seats, since they are folding like innova's, to give access to rearmost seats. Even if centre row of seats are positioned more towards the front, the rearmost seats still will be having insufficient legroom for full sized adults. sorry did not take pics of rearmost seats, remember it was raining!
