Now you got some idea about the number of affluent nuts in the country.So many booked a vehicle without it getting introduced in the market.There is no economic recission in INDIA.The choice of a car is ones personal preference.What else .

akshay, is that a left hand drive vehicle? Somehow in that diffused kind of image it appears as if the steering wheel is on the left hand side.

You mean the rear view mirror? I also thought so initially, but then do all cars behind us appear to us as left hand drives? I am not so sure all of a sudden, but I don't think so... Or then may be you are right. I am mighty confused all of a sudden.

I was confused too, I just did a quick check in my dressing mirror and the cars appearing in the RVM are exactly like what you see when you turn behind. The one in the pic is RHD! Proved!

I spoke to a Toyota sales person yesterday who mentioned they've been shown the car in their showrooms. The pricing could be anywhere between 17 and 20L. He confirmed it would be a mean 4 x 4

In this pic clicked by Akshay the fortuner seems to be the facelifted version.Earlier test vehicles had the old shape grill and headlight.So hopefully we will be getting the facelifted version of the Fortuner.
