IIRC, Toyota has dropped Fortuner plans. If you search for Fortuner thread, you will find that information.

Outlander is expected probably early next year.

if you can wait for 6-7 months then the best car according to your requirements would be the tiguan.

Can anyone help me when these SUV's (Tiguan, Outlander and Captiva) are going to be launched? I think Fortuner wont come soon.

Dude, tiguan will be launched a little later by end of next year or might even take a little longger time. Captiva is the newest that would be launched quite soon by end of this year or by jan-2008. check out the new edition of Autocar magazine and you'll have a very good idea. captiva is just the copy of CRV, but CRV looks better.
tiguan might exceed your budget. outlander might also exceed a little higher than your budget, but trust me outlander will have a very low fuel efficiency and also, outlander is not a very popular SUV sold around the world, so you might not be confident about it in a long run or its engine.
fortuner is dropped by toyota. they have no plans soon to lauch fortuner in india and so there's no point waiting for it.

as a matter of fact, even i'm in search of buying an SUV in couple of months and after this thread, i dropped my idea of endeavour and have decided on CRV. anybody with a better advice?

Budget is not a big issue. I am looking for some nice SUV for long term use and my preferences in order are:
1.Outlander- For looks, interiors and diesel
2.Pajero - For tried and tested product, Fun to drive. -tive: outdated interiors and 3 people cant sit in middle row.
3.Tigian For Looks and VW

Please suggest whether its worthy to wait for Outlander and Tiguan or should I go for Pajero or is there any other option also in the price range of 20 lacs approx ? I can wait for couple of months also.

Thanks

I think its best to wait for the SUVs to be launched, and then have a "What Car" discussion on them. Until then, it will be pure speculation.
