We often get to see the phrase “Dad’s gift” or “Mom’s gift” behind many cars and two-wheelers in India. However, the kids gifting vehicles to the parents is not as common or usual. In the past, we have done a few reports of children gifting vehicles to parents. Here is one such video and this time the children have gifted a brand-new Toyota Fortuner to his parents.
The video is from Haryana but the exact location is not mentioned in the video. The video on the channel Grass A4 shows how the two children tie a blindfold around the eyes of his parents’ eyes and lead them to the parking of the house. Then they open the blindfold to reveal the brand-new Toyota Fortuner. With the Fortuner in front of them, the eyes of the parents sparkle with joy and excitement.
The video further shows the mother doing the rituals of blessing the brand-new vehicle too. After that, the father opens the driver seat and a number of balloons kept inside the vehicle start to fall out of the car. They make space by removing the balloons from inside the car. The video also shows them driving the Fortuner around.
The exact variant of this Fortuner is not known but it seems like the Sigma variant. Nonetheless, the base price of the Toyota Fortuner starts at around Rs 30 lakh while the top-end Legender costs close to Rs 39 lakh, ex-showroom.
2021 Toyota Fortuner
Toyota launched the 2021 Fortuner in the Indian market in January this year. The Japanese manufacturer also introduced the Legender, which is a sportier and much more aggressive-looking variant based on the standard Fortuner. There are quite a few changes in the new Fortuner.
It includes LED projector headlamps, a new redesigned grille, halogen fog lamps and a bigger skid plate that has been redesigned to look brutish. There are not many changes done to the side of the vehicle. It now gets new 6-spoke alloy wheels. The rear, however, gets a lot of updates including a new bumper design and new LED tail lamps.
There are no changes in the cabin too. However, Toyota has made the feature list much longer. The new additions include Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, an 11-speaker system from JBL, connected features to track the vehicle and more. Toyota has also added ventilated front seats for added convenience. However, Toyota is yet to offer a sunroof.
With the facelift, Toyota has added more powerful engine options too. It gets a 2.7-litre petrol engine that produces a maximum power of 164 Bhp and a peak torque of 245 Nm. The diesel variants get powered by the 2.8-litre V-GD engine that generates a maximum power of 204 Bhp and a peak torque of 500 Nm. The 4X4 drivetrain is optional while Toyota has improved the driving modes.. Even the steering weight now depends on the selected drive mode.
