It is popular among buyers for reasons like it’s intimidating looks and reliable engine along with a bearable maintenance cost. Toyota Fortuner is not just all show and go, it is a very capable vehicle on and off the road and we have featured articles on our website showing Fortuner’s capabilities in the past. Fortuner has been a very popular SUV in it’s segment ever since it’s launch and now with the second-gen Fortuner the popularity has only increased. Here we have video that show how the Fortuner wold look like, if it were to be launched with a Coupe-ish design.
The video has been uploaded by SRK Designs The video shows a rendered image of current generation Toyota generation which gets a coupe design. The artist has completely changed the front of the SUV. Starting with the headlights, they are now placed on the bumper. They look similar to the one seen in Tata Harrier. Above that there is a LED DRL which meets the all black grille at the front. The bumper also gets a new skid plate and a bar at the front. all the chrome elements have been taken away from the front. Even the Toyota logo has been replaced with SRK badging.
Coming to the side profile of the car, first change that has happened are those rugged off-road tyres with all black alloys. The SUV looks a bit more raised and has cladding on all the wheel arches. Coming to the top, the roof is pretty flat and start getting a slope after the C Pillar. The slope ends right above the tail lamp units. Due to this coupe design, the Fortuner can only seat 5 people now as the third row will lack headroom. Overall look of the Toyota Fortuner coupe is pretty fantastic and looks sport enough. There are only few SUVs that has integrated the coupe design into an SUV. One being the BMW X6 and the other Mercedes-Benz GLC.
Toyota has no plans to launch Fortuner in this avatar and is purely an outcome of artist’s imagination. Toyota Fortuner is powered by a 2.7L petrol and a 2.8L diesel engine.
