Toyota Kirloskar Motor dominates the full-size SUV segment with Fortuner with the Ford Endeavour playing second fiddle. Alongside the Innova Crysta, the Fortuner has been a consistent seller for Toyota over the years as both the premium offerings have a dedicated fanbase.

Currently, the Fortuner is sold in 6 trims with petrol and diesel engines mated to either a manual or an automatic transmission. With prices starting at Rs. 27.83 lakh for the base petrol 4×2 manual variant, it goes all the way up to Rs. 33.60 lakh for the range-topping 4×4 diesel AT (both prices, ex-showroom).

The Japanese manufacturer introduced the latest Fortuner in late 2016 and it has lived up to the expectations of its predecessor. Utilising its popularity, Toyota will more likely expand the Fortuner’s range by adding updated TRD Sportivo kit and it will make official market debut later this week.

Toyota appears to be trying to broaden its premium offerings in India as two new models were showcased at a private event locally. The Vellfire luxury MPV could be launched by October 2019 with prices of more than Rs. 70 lakh (ex-showroom). It will be powered by the 2.5-litre petrol hybrid powertrain employed in the Camry that went on sale in January 2019.
