2017 New Toyota Fortuner looks mature in every single way inside out and will take on very tough competition this time
Toyota in India is known for two vehicles by and large. Fortuner and Innova. The Innova came in and has succeed already. With sales being four digits, the company is clearly having a ball with the Innova sales as there is no stopping this vehicle. Fortuner is also such a vehicle that commands that kind of value in the market. With sales not stopping despite the current product being inferior and a lot of options in the market, it shows Toyota clearly owns the market in this area. However, Ford has managed to take it down a bit by a good margin and hence the Fortuner is coming slightly earlier than expected. We have all the details of the SUV and what you can expect from the SUV.
