Quick Review

Good

Off-road capability, value for money, manageable size

Bad

Tight third row, slow base model, ride, cheap cabin

The Fortuner is the latest 4WD to join the over-extended Toyota 4WD lineup. The Fortuner is the product of Toyota's International Multi-Purpose Project family, which also includes the new Hilux pick-up and the Innova. These three vehicles all share the new platform and are built in Indonesia, so any thought about this Toyota being purely Japanese is an allusion. Although this 4WD is based on a pickup, its styling is very softly finished, with none of the toughness inherent in its larger siblings. It has true off-road ability, thanks to four-wheel-drive with low-range gearing. It also has space for five, or optionally seven, and its value-packed price is sure to attract families rather than desert junkies. The Fortuner is available here with a 2.7-litre 4-cylinder as well as two 4.0-litre V6 engines, one with manual and a higher-torque one with the automatic. The Fortuner sits high up from the ground, so it can be a bit of a climb for the kind of people who are expected to buy it. It has space for five adults and two kids. Features include power windows, dual front airbags, keyless entry, fabric upholstery, 16-inch wheels and an MP3-compatible CD player. Higher trim levels get fake wood, cruise control, chrome body trimmings, navigation, alloy wheels, rear diff lock, ABS and a multi-information display.
