That's very polite of you

Wondering why haven't there been any media drives so far. Waiting for a proper professional review.

GTO/mods - any idea what's going on?

None of the dealers in Mumbai have a display car forget test-drives! All other cities have got it but not Mumbai, donít know what is happening .

I have two queries , will be checking anyway when I go for service but thought of checking here first
1. How do I make connected car features like geo fencing, find my car work? Is there SIM card in Fortuner? I could not find an app in play store.
2. Idling rpm in my car is at 800. I recall reading somewhere that this was bought down to 680. Has anyone got to check? I have no problem with 800 rpm as even then insulation is pretty good.

This is a screenshot taken from a youtube review and the rpm needle does seem to be at exactly 680 rpm.

Are you serious? No display cars yet? Sounds bizarre. From what I hear, test drive cars should be available here in Bangalore starting next week, let's see. Looking forward to drive a manual transmission with 200+ BHP on tap for the first time

Got some info on connected car services. This has been outsourced to Carot a subsidiary of UNO Minda. I am unable to register yet as I am trying to fetch device ID. Toyota should have integrated better even the app is from Carot and should have been integrated to Toyota Connect. I am ok with Carot as many manufacturers use these as OEM but problem is with integration. Moreover Toyota dealers are clueless.

Do let us know your experience and all the features offered in this connected tech once you are able to register.

Congratulations! Mid-Feb is quite good for a non-white color. When did you book?

I had made the booking in December. But kept my options open on colour and variant. Went to MGF Toyota this past Sunday. They had a white vehicle on display. Was initially keen on travelling to Moti Nagar to see the new Sparkling Black, but held back due to Farmer's Protest. Also my dad was satisfied with the Current Black on offer. Since he will be primarily using the car, it was a done deal.

Dealer says 10 days for delivery, but taking it with a pinch of salt, so mid Feb.

Ah, that explains! December bookings are being given priority. So, you've booked Attitude Black and not the new Sparkling Black, right?

Also, any test-drive vehicles available with dealers in Delhi?

Yes, Attitude Black.

No, no dealer is offering test drives. I have called every single one, they are saying only display vehicles have arrived, we don't have any TD vehicles.

Okay. Hope you are aware that this color is not metallic and therefore, looks quite bland on a big SUV like the Fortuner. This was my choice earlier but one look at an Innova in this color (at dealer's yard) and I changed my mind.

Same here in Bangalore. From what I hear, test drive vehicles should be available by next week. Only Toyota can pull something like this off - waiting periods of months without people even getting to drive the vehicle
