Toyota Fortuner is one of India’s most popular SUV. It has been in the market for a very long time and it is still loved by those who want a butch looking SUV that can handle any terrain. Like Innova or Innova Crysta, Fortuner is also popular in the market for its reliability, off-road capabilities and low cost of maintenance. We have seen several videos of modified Toyota Fortuner on the internet. Toyota Fortuner competes with cars like Ford Endeavour, MG Gloster in the segment. We have seen examples of tastefully modified Fortuner SUVs in the country and here we have a Toyota Fortuner with a very unique modification. What is it? lets have a look at the video.
The video has been uploaded by Revokid Vlogs on their YouTube channel. The video starts with the vlogger showing the Toyota Fortuner from outside. This is a 2021 model Toyota Fortuner facelift top-end variant. Vlogger starts by showing the boot of the SUV. The space inside the boot on this Fortuner has been partially utilised for installing the toilet setup.
It is probably India’s first and only Toyota Fortuner to get this feature. This will be useful when one is on a road trip and is not ready to use a public toilet. The customisation has been done by Ojes garage which does customisation work on cars and caravans. The Toyota Fortuner seen in this video looks stock from outside. The only noticeable change on this modification are the tyres. The stock highway terrain tyres have been replaced for 18 inch BF Goodrich AT tyres.
Vlogger then moves inside the SUV to show the built-in toilet. One of the seats from the third row has been removed to installed the toilet inside the car. The toilet can be accessed by simply folding the second row seats. We have seen similar style of toilet setup in Caravans but, this is the first time it is being done on a Fortuner SUV. The toilet has been installed properly and the flooring has been redone for this particular modification.
Video also mentions that the car comes with dedicated water tank for the toilet. Even if the car is being driven on a rough surface, the water won’t spill inside the car. Other than this no major modifications have been made to the SUV. We had featured similar type of modification in Mahindra Bolero but, in that, the last row was completely utilised. In this case only one of the seat and the some boot space has been occupied. Vlogger does not mention the overall cost of this customised built in toilet.
Toyota Fortuner is a capable SUV and it is available with both petrol and diesel engine options. The diesel engine in the facelifted Fortuner generates more power and torque. It is powered by a 2.8 litre diesel engine that generates 205 Ps and 500 Nm of peak torque. The petrol version is powered by a 2.7 litre engine that generates 165 Ps and 245 Nm of peak torque. Both petrol and diesel are available with manual and automatic transmission options but only the diesel version comes with 4×4 as an option.
