The Toyota Fortuner is a 7-seater SUV based on the underpinnings of the Hilux. 2019 Toyota Fortuner competes against the likes of Mazda CX-8, Hyundai Santa Fe and Kia Sorento. There are 3 variants and prices start from RM 171,500 to RM 195,600.
Appearing alongside the 2021 Toyota Innova is the 2021 Toyota Fortuner. The refreshed, locally-assembled (CKD) 5-seater SUV comes with an exterior refresh and beyond that, a new engine from the Toyota Hilux Rogue.
The headlining new feature here is the engine fitted on the range-topping 2.8 VRZ 4x4. It's now fitted with the Hilux Rogue's 2.8-litre turbodiesel (1GD-FTV) engine that makes 204 PS and 500 Nm, mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. Meanwhile, the 2.7 SRZ keeps its 166 PS/245 Nm engine and the 2.4 variant (only available in East Malaysia) runs on the same 150 PS, 400 Nm mill as before.
As seen in the Toyota Hilux Rogue, the 2.8-litre turbodiesel engine produces 204 PS at 3,400 rpm and 500 Nm of torque from 1,600 rpm to 2,800 rpm, mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission with 4x4 capability. The 2.7-litre petrol engine is carried over from before.
On the outside, it gets quad LED headlamps and a mesh-type front grille. The foglamp, turn signal and position lamps have also been restyled while the front and rear bumpers have a new design. The skid plate below the front end is also new, complemented with a black roof, A-pillars, side mirrors and roof-mounted spoiler. Also, the 18-inch wheels are a new design.
Moving inside, there’s a new instrument panel featuring a revised Multi Information Display (MID) opening animation. There’s also ambient lighting and electrochromic rearview mirror. Plus, the tailgate now gets a hands-free kick function.
Another notable inclusion of Toyota Safety Sense (TSS) suite of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) on the 2.8-litre VRZ variant. The system includes Pre-collision System (AEB), Lane Departure Alert, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control and Yaw Assist Function.
Prices for the Fortuner are: RM 203,183 (VRZ), RM 172,244 (SRZ) and RM 167,357 (2.4AT).
