The butch styling combined with bullet proof reliability and off-road capability has made the Fortuner India’s largest selling premium SUV since its launch way back in August 2009. This 7-seater SUV, which is now in its second generation, is available new with a starting price of 27.5 lakh–a 50 percent premium over the starting price of previous gen Fortuner.
Given its reliability, it is also good option for the off-road adventure seekers and mileage munchers. Which variant works for you would depend why you are buying the Fortuner in first place. For adventure seekers 4X4 versions are an obvious choice. Else, the entry level is perfectly fine. So, what are your options if you have a budget of Rs. 13 to Rs. 15 lakh?
Recommendation #1: Toyota Fortuner 3.0 MT 4X2
Year: 2015 / Kms Driven: 69,922 / List Price: Rs 1,400,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs 2,417,000
This entry, which comes at a discount of 42% to its original price is 4 years old and has done 69,922 Kms. In short, its relatively new but heavily used. Yet, its likely good for another 150,000 km which is about 10 years of use! Currently with its first owner, this white coloured FORTUNER looks to in good condition. There shouldn’t be any major issues but do remember that even tyre changes on big SUVs cost a lot of money. Apart from the brake pads that wear off easily, no major worries really.
Recommendation #2: Toyota Fortuner 3.0 MT 4X2
Year: 2014 / Kms Driven: 60,441 / List Price: Rs 1,400,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs 2,417,000
This entry, which comes at a discount of 42% to its original price is 5 years old and has done 60,441 Kms. This diesel-powered, FORTUNER is currently with its first owner. Its pretty similar to the first listing so same set of things apply here.
Recommendation #3: Toyota Fortuner 2.8 4X2 AT 2013
Year: 2013 / Kms Driven: 81,000 / List Price: Rs 1,435,500 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs 2,386,000
This entry, which comes at a discount of 40% to its original price is 6 years old and has done 81,000 Kms. This diesel-powered, grey FORTUNER is currently with its first owner. Usually cars older than 5 years are avoidable but that just does not apply to Fortuner. You’d loose out on some features but otherwise its tank like build means it will be good for another 5-8 years. The good bit is that its an auto. However, since its 6 years old, its a better buy for those outside Delhi-NCR than those within it as the latter would be able to use it for just four more years.
The median price at which FORTUNER has typically sold has been around Rs 13,98,250, and in Delhi-NCR, that price has been around Rs 13,96,500.
Since the final selling price data is not available, we estimate the actual selling prices to be 5-10% lower than this. Another tip: the most popular that gets bought and sold in Delhi-NCR in the Full Size SUV category is Toyota Fortuner.
