In every other market it has been launched I believe that it comes with Toyota's full time 4WD system with center diff and center diff lock. I hope they don't make an exception for India.

I dont get the manufactures in India. Whats the point of covering up the car, everyone know what car it is and thats the same with fiat punto.

Innova is 12.6L on road in hyderabad, I highly doubt if they will price the fortuner at 13L. Minimum will be about 16-17L

There will be buyers if even they can price it at 17L as the Innova has tons of satisfied buyers and folks know they cant go wrong on this one!

The difference between Innova and Fortuner is around Rs. 2.5 lakhs in Thailand, since most of the imported components in Innova come from Thailand and both Innova & Fortuner share the same platform. I dont see any reason why Fortuner cannot be launched in India at 2.5 lakhs higher than the Innova. That acctually makes it in a range of 13-15 Lakhs. Btw it is superb vehicle, good menacing road presence when compared to the RAV4. I saw a lot of them on my trip recently. Fortuner looks much more macho as compared to the RAV4

Guys after a lot of research toyota india has made up their mind for 20L Ex Showroom price. There will be takers for it at this price easily. It only doesnt help for some fellows like us who were hoping toyota do some paring with Thailand pricing + innova platform + localisation + little upcost of Innova.

hi all

i dont think the silver coloured vehicle is a fortuner. I have seen the latest model in the show room just couple of days back (in Doha). it surely looks different especially from the back and side shots. The front does look like fortuner. The black vehicle does looks like a fortuner. Sorry if iam wrong

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.

hi

the 3 LTR engine is under powered for the fortuner. Our company is having quite a fortuners in our fleet. The 4 ltr engine is quite nippy and fits the vehicle very well.

This is indeed the fortuner, if not the latest model.

Looks huge ,will it have the street presence of the captiva or the CRv?Captiva has immense road presence for that matter.Maybe because of the color this feeling arise ,in a darker shade maybe it would look great,

omg people still hoping it to be priced around 13-14 lacs.
absolutely impossible no matter how much you people pray for it.It is a direct competitor for the CRV and the captiva which are 20 lac + no way it will compete with the scorpio ,safari or any other muv for that purpouse they have the innova which i must say Did /doing extremely well.

I agree with some of the others here. In India there is hardly any competition for Toyota in the 20 lakh range. They can price it at 10 and get away with it given that the Fortuner has much better specifications/features than other body on frame suvs sold in India in 20 lakh range.

great. Yes I hope they dont knock off all this on account of some estupido marketing tactic - it s going to be a winner in comparison to the OUtlander then! - Diesel plus 4WD.
Im sure it will beat the silly old Honda and Captiva too - I have never liked either of those - too pretentious I always felt.

This is huge, way more than Captiva or CRV, in terms of road presence, comparable or even better than Endeavour.

yeah, yeah, we do know its not going to be less than 20L, but yes, we are disappointed at this pricing from Toyota who have given us decent prices for CKD units (new Camry ruled out as its CBD)
