Congratulations .anshuman !!!

It is for sure a White Mammoth, there are a lot of after market Chrome inserts available in after-market for Fortuner and IMHO they really look fantastic on Fortuner.

One of my cousin has a Black Mammoth and these chrome inserts really gel in well with the whole bulk of metal.

Cheers

Congratulations Anshuman on the great buy - we also got the delivery of a white fortuner in our building (not mine - I just bought a 320dCE) and its arguably the best looking car in the building (we have a C, an E, 2 3's, 1 5 and 2 Sueperbs). I had TD'ed the car and felt that it was underpowered for its awesome road presence. Like you rightly pointed out I did'nt buy it for the interiors and manual transmission.

The worst part of the TD was the attitude of the sales guy at Lakozy Toyota, the dealer in Mumbai.

Still, its an awesome car - wish I had one too!! Happy motoring.

have been going this thread, without congratulating.

Congratulations on the mammoth, it is truly a mammoth when standing next to other cars.

So you are running on temporary numbers.

Also, how was the dealer experience, did they do as they are expected to do, delivery without delays on the committed timelines ?

Thanks, No offences meant but I do not like the cheap chrome aftermarket stuff at all.

Thanks Amit, Temporary numbers are valid for one month. Dealer experience was good. The SUV was booked in Jan.

Don't think so.
Fortuner has Limited Slip center differential, but front and rear diffs are open diffs.

congrats anshuman,
your white beast is a definite visual and ride pleasure.
few points you mentioned about the braking and handling do seem to be noteworthy for other Fortuner aspirants. Also lack of equipment in a 20L car/SUV is a concern.
Comparison with the Innova seems confusing because both cars are world apart.
I had the chance of driving an Innova on a recent trip to Manali on winding roads. Innova held its line perfectly all the time.. im sure Fortuner would be way ahead of Innova in terms of ride and handling.

Pls post more pictures of the interiors. My brother is planning to buy the Fortuner. I have promised him that i will research the car before he makes the decision.

Cheers!

It has been discussed here: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/4x4-ve...outback-5.html (Took a Fortuner offroading through the outback)

Congrats on the purchase anshuman. If I may ask, what made you to decide on the Fortuner? How is it as compared to the Endy? Did you also TD the Endeavour? I think the features provided on the Endy is long and quiet exhaustive.
