Toyota Fortuner is currently is in its second-generation and is extremely popular around the world. In India, the Fortuner has remained on the top-selling spot for years now and no other car could displace it from the top spot. Toyota is all set to launch a facelifted version of the second-generation Fortuner and recently a couple of pictures without any camouflage gave an indication on how the new facelifted version might look like. Here are two rendered images of the car.
While there are quite a few rendered images of the upcoming facelifted version of the Fortuner, these one show the closest possibility of the production version of the car. The rendered images by Kolesa.Ru perfectly traces the uncamouflaged versions of the Fortuner and show what the production version might look.
The current version of the Toyota Fortuner was launched in 2016 and it is a good time to launch a mid-life facelifted version of the car before it gets a complete model upgrade. The rendered images show that the Fortuner will become much more aggressive-looking than the current model.
The front-end has been completely updated with a new bumper and new grille. The grille has become sleeker while the bumper has become more aggressive. The fog lamp housings look extreme too. Toyota may slightly redesign the headlamps to give a new look. The current version of the Fortner already offer a sleek look, with the update, we may get to see sleeker headlamps with all-LED lamps inside.
The side of the SUV may not get a lot of changes though. We will continue to get the same window line and flared wheel arches. The rear will again get a few updates that will make the Fortuner much more dominating and eye-catchy. Toyota will update the bumper while tweaking the tail lamps of the SUV. There will not any major changes to the other parts of the vehicle. However, we will get to see a new set of alloy wheels.
The cabin of the new Fortuner will remain identical to the current version. However, a new infotainment system and a few additional features including a connected app can be expected. Apart from that, the feature list will remain similar to the current version of the vehicle.
Toyota offers a number of petrol and diesel engine options in the international markets. There is 2.7-litre petrol and 4.0-litre petrol while the diesel engine options include a 2.4, a 2.8 and a 3.0-litre.
The Indian version will continue to offer the BS6 compliant 2.7-litre petrol and the 2.8-litre diesel engine options. It is expected to be revealed globally by the middle of this year while the launch in India may happen by the end of this year or early 2021.
