Toyota Fortuner 2016

Recommended Posts

Interior and exterior pics are out! Seems better than the current generation, looking forward to the diesel variant. There also seems to be a little lexus design there in the rear. 7 seaters too so will tick some extra boxes.

 

Anyone knows when it's hitting our shores?

I disagree. The older one had cleaner lines and less me-too chrome, the front end of the new model is ugly and they messed with the rear pillar lines just as the Discovery Sport decided to emulate it!

 

As to budget, what a snobby thing to say. It's a value for money work horse of a car, with great passenger configuration flexibility, quick enough through town and very capable off-road and through downpours and ponding... and I always felt safe in it, largely from the commanding driving position with great forward visibility (beware known blind spots).

 

I ran my AWD version for 10 years hassle free and was sad to see it go last month, for a trade in price (depending on how you look at over-trade - discount on new car or value of old car) of 45% of what I paid for it in 2005 ($98K).

The new one not too bad la, maybe with some bodykit, it will look less chromy. Or maybe wait for facelift.

 

The thais already came out with bodykit, but it's subtle. Like the musculine look though.

Fortuners are quick enough off the mark, if you don't care too much about fuel economy, but you have to look further down the road, because there's a lot of mass to bring to a quick stop. And it's true, you can't overtake "at will" (the 80 - 120 time is not great), it requires more experience/skill than that, but for Singapore and fearless forays north, it's a champ.

The height now lowered? more carpark friendly...

 

This model may be affordable, spent a bit more than harrier for a larger and more seats (but slower, less petrol economy).

RX too expensive (possibly can buy 2 harrier for one base model 4th generation RX 2016).
