2016 Toyota Fortuner and Hilux should debut before end of 2015
The current Toyota Fortuner is a bit long in the tooth, having undergone two minor facelifts over its near decade-long existence. However, it looks like a completely new model is set to debut before the end of 2015.
The 2016 Toyota Fortuner has been spotted undergoing final testing on the streets of Brazil by Noticias Automotivas, alongside its next-generation platform-mate, the 2016 Toyota Hilux. Based on those spy shots, others have created these artist’s renderings of what the new models could look like.
While the 2016 Fortuner will clearly be the more flamboyant of the two, with its Yaris-derived styling cues, at least some of the elements seen here may be wishful thinking and remains to be seen how the final turns out.
The 2016 Hilux seems to be going for a more conservative look, bordering on unattractive even, but then again, it is a commercial vehicle with a Toyota badge, so it doesn’t need to do too much to sell, and should retain its title as one of the top-selling vehicles in Saudi Arabia and UAE.
