Way to go Toyota, great VFM. 18.45 L is a dream come true for many customers and nightmare for many companies. I am really happy with this and in line with GTO that it has made my Monday too. Where is that "My next car" thread..

Love this picture from toyota site- Toyota - Fortuner

Automatic will be coming. Best part is, the manuals pricing leaves room for the automatic.

As I posted earlier, this can be applied to any 20 lakh SUV vis a vis Innova (not the Fortuner alone). For example, the Innova has better interiors than the Pajero and is pretty evenly matched in onroad performance. It can also seat 7 in better comfort than the Pajero.

Toyota better ramp up production. At this price, it will even take away some 20 lakh sedan buyers too, who would have otherwise gone for an Accord.

While I do agree that enthusiasts respect the Pajero for its offroadability, they form a very small percentage of buyers who choose the Pajero for its actual 4x4. A large number of Pajero sales come from rural & semi-urban towns (its so popular there) as well as those who want a premium Jap SUV for onroad use (primarily). The Pajero will be affected - big time - by the Fortuner. Just wait for the monthly sales analysis

Absolutely, I would have never believed it since we all thought Fortuner would be priced at 22L. At only 10% higher price, you can get lot more with Fortuner. This is going to hit GV really hard, they are better off reducing the price, same as the earlier model.

The on-road price in Karnataka will be Rs.22.25L...
and 18.45 lacs delivers a knock out punch on the face of CRV.

Tera kya hoga Honda?

How I wish Toyota launches some thing below Altis with the same kind of aggressive pricing.

As I had been told by my dealer earlier last month, while booking the vehicle, expected price was 18.5 approx. ex showroom.

Putting some pressure on the dealer to get an early delivery!

Now to get a test drive!

Website says 18.38 ex-showroom for Bangalore. Can't wait to get TD and then push dealer for early delivery.

Called Nandi Toyota, they are still clueless about the pricing. While the rest of the world has caught up on net, Toyota dealers are caught napping here.

How can Pune price be 1.5L more than Delhi price?

Are you kidding? Fulltime 4WD is a freaking boon on bad roads, twisters and rains. I have a fulltime 4WD, so I can speak by experience on this one. Fortuner has central diff with LSD which is a pretty expensive part, Pajero and Captiva don't have it, yet are lot more expensive.

I had not realized the change in the Paj buyer segment to such an extent - if so, this is the end of the line for the Pajero!

If only the pricing was similar across india. Impressive none the less. Any word on exshowroom price in Bangalore.
P.s- now the only hindrance in booking this SUV is the waiting period :-(

Awesome pricing. The decision should be a no-brainer for someone looking at a premium SUV. The amateur Nostradamus in me predicts that Toyota will be able to easily move 400-450 units a month.

Not quite early . CRV is more comfortable & easier to drive. Also has less stiff suspension than Fortuner. CRV win hands down unless if its some serious off-roading or want to seat 7.
