Part of the success of South Africa’s most popular SUV, the Toyota Fortuner, can be attributed to continuously responding to the evolving needs of customers and incorporating this market feedback into the product line-up in order to stay ahead of the game.
So, while the current Fortuner has been upgraded less than a year ago, more specification enhancements and adaptions have now been incorporated into the range – in part due to the recent launch of the new Isuzu mu-X, now featuring a new Intelligent Driver Assistance System (IDAS), and the impending introduction of the new Ford Everest. Convenience changes include dual-zone climate control for the 2.8 models, with the range-topping VX now inheriting a Panoramic View Monitor (PVM) with selectable view, and an upgrade to the 11-speaker JBL Premium Audio system. However, the on-board satellite navigation has been omitted; according to Toyota due to the preferred usage of smartphone apps via the Apple CarPlay/Android Auto functionality.
Safety and security enhancements in all the models now include an enhanced Smart Entry system with additional security measures. In addition, the Toyota Safety Sense (TSS) system in VX variants now has Blind-Spot Monitoring (BSM) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA). The exterior colour line-up on the 2.4 and 2.8 models, with seven colours to choose from, remain unchanged but on VX models, with a choice of eight exterior hues. the Pearl White option is replaced by a new Platinum White Pearl.
The model and engine line-up remains unchanged but prices have been adjusted, now ranging from R599,000 to R837.100.Prices: Upgraded Toyota Fortuner 2.4 GD-6 RB MT R599,0002.4 GD-6 RB AT R621,400 2.4 GD-6 4×4 AT R651,7002.8 GD-6 RB AT R724,4002.8 GD-6 4×4 AT R798,0002.8 GD-6 RB VX AT R764,6002.8 GD-6 4×4 VX AT R837,100TOYOTA Toyota SA Toyota Hilux/Fortuner South Africa Toyota Fortuner #Toyota#toyotasouthafrica#toyotafortuner#toyotafortuner2021#Fortuner#fortunerlovers#roadtrip#aheadofthegame
