Planning to buy Toyota Fortuner and can’t decide which variant to buy? Here’s our exclusive comparison of Fortuner trims to help you choose the perfect one for you.

Toyota has been in the Indian car market for a very long time and knows about the trends present in the market. When the Toyota Fortuner was launched for the first time a couple of years ago, it became extremely popular because of its macho design and attractive price tag. Over time, the Fortuner improved but the prices for the vehicle sky-rocketed and slowly, it became unaffordable for a lot of people. Now that the Fortuner has made a name for itself and established its position in the market, Toyota can charge a bit higher from the prospective buyers because they would still be willing to buy it. However, there are many variants on offer and it might be difficult for the buyers to reach a purchase decision. Stay tuned and we will help you in making an informed decision.

4×2 AT Petrol 2.7-litre Petrol 6-Speed AT 163 245

 

The Toyota Fortuner comes with two engine options, a diesel and a petrol. The diesel engine is a powerful unit when compared to the petrol on paper, but in real world conditions, the petrol powertrain isn’t bad either. These engines are capable and perform well in the city and on the highway. The 4×4 variants are capable off-roaders as well and make this an exciting proposition for anybody looking to purchase the vehicle.

Price List

Variants Price (ex-showroom)
4×2 Diesel Rs 33.23 Lakhs
4×2 Diesel AT Rs 35.51 Lakhs
4×4 Diesel Rs 35.89 Lakhs
Legender Rs 38.61 Lakhs
4×4 Diesel AT Rs 38.18 Lakhs
Legender 4×4 AT Rs 40.90 Lakhs
4×2 Petrol Rs 30.73 Lakhs
4×2 AT Petrol Rs 32.32 Lakhs

 

The price list for the Toyota Fortuner is pretty extensive and has a difference of Rs 10 Lakhs between the base and top variants. This translates to the fact that people with a lower budget can still get their hands on the lower variants. However, the top variant costing upwards of Rs 40 Lakhs is a bit overpriced and Toyota should bring down the prices a bit.

Conclusion

Toyota Fortuner is an SUV that has already established itself in the Indian market and comes with two capable engines. The diesel is a bit more powerful than petrol and will also prove to be frugal in real world conditions. Based on this comparison, it is safe to say that Toyota has not compromised on the features aspect for any variant and the difference in prices is due to the 4×4 and gearbox options. The Legender variant might have a few cosmetic enhancements on the outside which justify the higher price. This comparison portrays that buying the base variants of the Fortuner will be the most value for money decision, unless a person is looking to buy a 4×4 variant.
