Funny how cars look bigger / more imposing on our roads than abroad. Then of course, size is always relative to others on the road.

Nice pic, Gowda!

Hey Thanks guys and the thanks goes to my brother kdeepakk on T-Bhp, as i am in Singapore i see the same here.

It's true that this vehicle looks very huge when compared to the Fortuner which is seen regularly by me in Singapore.

The vehicle has very good road presence.

Default please dont compare it with outlander

20L, man thats costly, I guess this is supposed to be a competition for the outlander.[/quote]

Outlander is a car based crossover (unibody). This one looks like a body-on-frame SUV

Was on my way to Eagleton resorts after having breakfast at Kamat Lokaruchi. Spotted the Fortuner. I was crusing at a very slow speed. All of a sudden, dont know what went through the driver's mind, the whizzed past.

By the way, I was travelling in Innova.

More likely to be a Toyota since the temporary registration is done in Bangalore and Toyota is based out of Bangalore (Bidadi). The vehicle also looks like the Toyota Fortuner, good spot nandishpal ! Here is a photo for comparison purposes.

This is Toyota Fortuner. I have spoken to the person driving also. Its 3000 cc engine, good power, nice comfort. Interiors are similar to innova, not much difference.

Everyday u can see atleast 2 -3 vehicles moving from Hosur road to city, Hope they are not stocking it.

The release is in August.

regards
Deepak

Rs 20 lacs is pretty expensive - i guess it is likely competition in the Captiva LT, Honda CRV basic, Outlander and maybe even trying to undercut the X TRail/ Grand Vitara Segments - being Diesel it will certainly score. Being a Toyota, there will always be a premium paying customer for it.
Wonder whether it comes to us in India with 4WD select or Permanent 4WD or what.
And I do agree - I wish they would trim it down a bit and launch a base version at about 13-14 lacs - in that case it can offer a very viable alternative to Safari/ Scorpio in the SUV segment. I know however, that at best this is a pipe-dream.

Having said all this, no manufacturer yet seems to be addressing the crying need for a good, inexpensive, yet comfortable and functional smaller SUV in the price range of
6-8-9 lacs OTR. Would be superb - as per the other thread on Crossovers/ Mini SUVs.
Maybe after Fortuner they will bring in the RAV4 at a lesser price? (another pipe dream?)
