One of my Crysta is running stock HU with JBL amp and Infinity reference speakers. Other one is running on Blaupunkt HU and Rockford Fosgate setup. Another option you can consider is find a good aftermarket HU and just change the speakers. You can get Andorid Auto and Apple Car play along with decent sound, both which are missing in Fortuner. This might not look pleasing to eyes however.

Not too comfortable with the change in HU. Too expensive and not worth it for that they offer IMO.

I think I will go the Rockford Fosgate and amp way. Thanks for your help. Will update this thread once I am done with the upgrade.

I had a quick check on this last week. The installer told me there is no need to cut any thing and it can be fixed in the same slot.

If you put component speakers and good amp it will do real magic even without a sub woofer (if you have space issue).

The only drawback I see in the HU is the lack of apple carplay / android auto. the default navigation in HU will not show traffic information.

If I go ahead with a speaker upgrade as well, what kind of improvement would I expect in music quality? For speakers, I want them to fit in the same slot as the stock unit. Don't want any cutting or extra modifications.


I must say that for a car that costs almost 40L onboard, the speaker system of the Fortuner is pathetic. It is a shame, really.

As luck would had it, ended up getting sidewall damage and tyre cuts on 2 of the tyres of my Fortuner yesterday. Will have to postpone the speaker upgrade and change the tyres first. They were only used for 25k KMs :(

Will get the front tyres replaced with the Yokohama Geolander AT/S.

BTW got the Trizact treatment done from 3M Kolkata yesterday as well. Car is shining like new now.

Re: Toyota Fortuner : Official Review
 
The Fortuner is famous for quite a few reasons in India, including its reliability. But now and then issues can crop up in every vehicle, including a Fortuner. Here is an unlucky customer from Balasore, Odisha who bought a brand-new Toyota Fortuner and then seized the demo vehicle of the dealership after his problems were not appropriately addressed.

Need some feedback on accessories for fortuner. I am looking at

1) Front & Rear under run (it costs 45k, does it worth the investment?)
2) Side cladding (costs 24k, online shows some options well within 5k)
3) Illuminated scuff plate (costs 14k, online options are well within 4k)
4) Auto folding mirror
5) Rear Bumper Step Guard

Items 4 & 5 is any way ok, I am confused with first 3. It is really expensive from toyota dealer. Can I get then after market at cheaper price? Any details you can share?

Regards, Scorpio Fan

Hi Scorpio Fan.
Out of all the listed accessories, just get the auto folding mirrors from the dealer. Reason being its an electronic part and your warranty will remain intact.
Rest all can be done through the after market route. I too did the same when I purchased mine in 2016.
Please do share the online link for the accessories.
