The recently-launched Toyota Fortuner facelift is the most expensive SUV in its segment, as of January 2021
Toyota Kirloskar Motor recently updated the Fortuner SUV in the Indian market with a mid-life facelift. The updated model offered updated styling and better equipment, but also came with a hefty price hike. Its direct rivalry, however, continues to be with Ford Endeavour, MG Gloster, and Mahindra Alturas G4. Let’s take a look at how these four premium SUVs compare in terms of pricing.
The 2021 Toyota Fortuner is available in two variants, the standard Fortuner and the Fortuner Legender. The standard model is priced from Rs. 29.98 lakh to Rs. 37.43 lakh, while the Legender variant costs Rs. 37.58 lakh. On the regular Fortuner, you get two engine options – a 2.7-litre petrol mill and a 2.8-litre turbo-diesel motor.
The petrol engine can develop 165 PS and 245 Nm of peak power and torque, respectively, and can be had with either a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic. The diesel powerplant is capable of belting out 203 PS and 500 Nm (420 Nm on MT), and can be bought with either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic. The Legender variant is exclusively available with the 2.8L diesel engine, paired to a 6-speed automatic.
