I will suggest Endeavour over Fortuner not only because I own it but purely on the VFM factor.
You can easily compare them and apart from the resale value Fortuner stands no where.
Sunroof might not be of any use in hot weather but apart from that it makes interiors more lively. If you have kids they will surely love it. I usually keep the shade open and my 1.5 yr old kid enjoy the panoramic view while on rear seat.

Hi Folks,

I have always been a great fan of the Toyota Fortuner and have always dreamt of owning one. With the 2017 launch, i thought i would wait for a couple of years and buy a 2 year driven Fortuner since the owner would take the initial depreciation hit. However, the 4*2 AT is priced on the higher side, i am not really sure due to budget constraints whether i will be in a position to own the new-gen Fortuner. At the same time, i came across a 2014 Fortuner with 65k on the odo in a pristine condition demanding around 20L. I have a budget of 22L. The downer is that its a 4-speed AT. Does it make sense for me to wait for few more years and buy the current gen Fortuner at a lower price ? or should i buy the previous gen Fortuner since the price of a used new gen Fortuner would definitely not come down to what my budget is.

Hi,
Please avoid the 4-speed auto box at any cost. It surely is a big downer.

Regarding old vs new, if you don't mind the lack of creature comfort features or safety features like curtain and knee airbags, vsc etc then you can go for the old model.

Well voted in favour of the fortuner, I bought it few months back after exchanging my decade old fortuner.
I agree it is pricey, agree it lacks on features and agree that toyota is charging a premium on accessories but still if you see the brand perception wise, resale value wise and the service costs wise, Fortuner wins hands down.
Sales numbers do show this.
No disrespect for Endeavour which will be my second choice but still fortuner rules this segment.

After owning a 2 2 endeavour for almost an year, we are now considering another endeavour but 3.2 this time. We checked out the fortuner but it isn't 3ven close and there is no third option when it comes to butch SUVs.

Which variant of 2.2 do you have? And any particular reasons for going for 3.2 over the 2.2?

Hi all, I am in a big dilemma and need your guidance and advice. I was looking to buy an SUV in the ~25 lakh range with these objectives:

- value for money.
- awesome feel behind the wheel. you should want to love to drive it.
- usage will be around 12-15k kms/year.
- SUV driving experience. the height, the feeling etc. not necessarily 4*4 driving capacity. (bec i already have a good sedan and hatchback so only SUV this one.)

After research (thanks to all detailed reviews, reports etc. on t-bhp) and test drives finally short-listed:

1. Fortuner. Love the car; all checkboxes marked except money. my pick was the 4*2 MT 2.8L. On road ~33L
2. Crysta. love everything about the car expect it is a MUV and i felt not something you would want to drive to work everyday. but has all the right ingredeints to be seriously considered. confused which one is better 2.8L AT (26L) or 2.4L MT (24L). loved the feel of MT but AT is a better, more refined engine?
3. Compass. powerful, sleek, premium and modern looking diesel machine. 25L was the top end 4*2. seating was low and also read/heard some bad experiences from people about leakages, faulty parts etc.
4. MUX. 4*2 AT (27.5L) only automatic available and also old school average interiors and bit noisy engine. wasn't very impressed with their service too so ASS could be a factor later on but looks big value for money.

Ford endeavour (no manual avaialble) for the price of 4*2 AT (39L) is not an option i preferred and hence not on the list. Eagerly awaiting your responses and advises. thanks.

I think there is some confusion here. You can get Endeavour 2.2 AT in 31L and 35L for trend and titanium variants respectively. 3.2 AT titanium is the top model and is only available in 4*4 disguise. If you are fine with the 2.2 engine you can opt for 2.2 titanium which now comes with panoramic sunroof and few other added features.
If you do not want to stretch much then why not try Tata Hexa 4*2 or 4*4 it is surely more value for money.

We have the titanium spec. The reason to avoiding the 2.2 is that it's not exciting enough to drive. Adequate is the word but the drive is surely not as engaging as one would like. The 3.2 has that kick in the back feel which the 2.2 lacks. IMHO 2.2 is suited for chauffeurs and 3.2 for self drivers.
