Endeavour tends to beat Fortuner on interiors and ride quality as far as I can see. Fortuner scores in entirely other areas - cheaper service costs, abuse friendly etc. Might find another 2.0 Endeavour or even a used 3.2 (which would be even better, speaking as a new owner of a used 2018 3.2)?

I probably will put the Endeavour in between both of these. The mighty ford when compared to Fortuner looks better, drives better (especially the 3.2), feels more luxurious, is built better (not significantly though), and of course, off-roads better.


However, how can we even compare a ladder frame muscular SUV and a super comfort super fun driving sedan. Is it even an apple to apple comparison?

Anyday, ever, a sedan will always be more comfortable, will be miles ahead in ride and handling, compared to an SUV.

The choice between a sedan and SUV totally depends on the need and not the budget. The weight of the wallet is irrelevant here.

This is definitely not a valid line of thinking. Not an apple to apple comparison - SUV vs Sedan.

This is the right comparison
1. Superb vs Camry (vs C class vs 3 series vs A4 vs XE)
(or)
2. Fortuner vs Kodiaq/Allspace (vs Endeavour vs Gloster vs X1 vs GLA vs Q3 vs XC40)
