Earlier this year, we performed a comprehensive mileage test of the 2021 Toyota Fortuner facelift for 5,000 km, along with the AdBlue range test. If you have not checked it out, we suggest you to do so on our Youtube channel, as it is the most detailed on the internet. We went a step above and compared the new Fortuner with its main rivals in another video.
