5 ways to make life


easier for female
motorists

The midsize SUV segment is easily the category that has become the most
popular over the past 10 years. It has given more Pinoys an opportunity to own
a proper utility vehicle, with the likes of the Mitsubishi Pajero and the Toyota
Land Cruiser Prado costing practically double the asking price. The midsize
SUV also came at a time when diesels were getting better.
With the arrival of the new-generation Toyota Fortuner just around the
corner, its the last hurrah for the current model, and we're revisiting it for
perhaps the final time.

10 Analysis: What really

is LTFRB's beef with


GrabBike?

FEEDBOX
STYLING
Gunmetal alloy wheels, as well as smoked headlight and taillight clusters
definitely give this Fortuner a youthful appearance. The dark bits look
particularly good with the silver metallic finish. No wonder its the color we see
the most. The fog-lamp bezels have also been slightly redesigned.
These are relatively simple updates, but they go a long way, considering this
model has been around since 2005.

A lot. But first you have to figure out your
yearly mileage... then calculate fuel costs at
around 2.5 - 3 km/l in traffic or around 8-9 on
the highway (10+ is possible, but only with a
very light foot).

INTERIOR
The interior is now black, which is just as effective as the updates to the
exterior, providing the SUV with a more dynamic look inside. The dark finish
conceals the black woodgrain accents, resulting in a cabin with a classier and
sportier vibe.

RIDE AND HANDLING


This is where the vehicle begins to show its age. The car feels heavy,
particularly the steering. That said, handling has never been a strong selling
point of this model. The Fortuner cant lean toward a specific trait as Toyota
aims to satisfy a wide range.

MENU

It will be interesting to see, however, how the all-new Fortuner will fair in the
handling department, with the Japanese carmaker shifting toward a sportier
character.

EXTRA FEATURES
This 3.0 V variant comes with GPS navigation, although youll need to
purchase the SD card with maps from the dealer. But we use Waze a lot, so we
didnt really get to try out the system.

THE VERDICT
With the all-new Hiluxs local launch and the new-generation Fortuners
photos all over the Internet after its global launch, interest in the current model
is naturally fast dwindling. Without an exact date for the new models arrival,
however, expect to see more of the outgoing (and probably discounted)
Fortuner rolling out of showrooms in the meantime. While its days are
numbered, it continues to be a solid contender. It remains to be a no-brainer
purchase. Unless you're waiting for the new one, that is.

VNT did come late for the 2.5 diesel but I believe it has been in the 3.0 variant since
2005. I may be wrong though as I only have the gas model

Bad news the new gen Fortuner in Thailand will retain its rear drum brakes. Who knows
they might just carryover the old engines as well as brakes...

Clayton Yu let's see because Toyota watches first the strategy of different
brands like Mitsubishi and ford, then it will make changes for the model , the
drum brakes are for Thailand only because that's their requirement, but all SUVs
now have rear disc brake, so soon Fortuner will be disc brake

It's about High Philippines taxation mixed to the unit, price. It was hence the
result of importation fees , the mux were cheap because they are made locally in
Philippines , the 2016 montero is now expensive 1.5 M to 2M it was also the tax
fees included
