Default Why not RAV4

I do not see Fortuner in their main list, But 4Runner. Why not Toyota plan for RAV4?

Quite an observation that is mate
For those who joined the party late, Fortuner is based on Toyota's IMV platform - the same which is used for Innova. So you see, the similarities run deeper that what just meets the eye..

RAV4 is only 5 seater while Fortuner is a 7 seater with decent last row of seats. This looks like a better value.

The new RAV4 has a third row of seats as well.

Although the Rav4 has 7 seats, I still don't see it working in our market, it would see the fate of the Vitara.

In India SUV means size, hence the Endeavor is a hit even though it has a lot going against it.

True. The Fortuner definitely seems more promising, given the Toyota reliability.

Brilliant road presence i say. The endy although is big, doesn't somehow have the road presence of the Safari. I feel this one definitely has!
