    THE power to lead. The Fortuner’s new battle cry is an affirmation of Toyota’s best-selling SUV to continue its strong market presence.

    “The Fortuner captured the hearts of many Filipinos as proven by strong sales.  It has an SUV body perfect for the Philippines’ flood-prone streets, an array of variants including a fuel-efficient diesel engine, a macho look that satisfies desires, and most of all, an affordable price – making it an achievable dream!” TMP President Atsuhiro Okamoto said during the online media launch of the Fortuner upgrade.

    The new LTD variant, with exclusive exterior and interior design, leads the new line up. The current Q and V variants are in automatic transmission, and the G variant available in AT and MT. The LTD comes in both 4×4 and 4×2 drivetrains

    Starting at P1.63M for the G MT variant, TMP assures Filipinos of great value for money with Toyota’s signature quality, durability, and reliability embedded in the DNA of the country’s best-selling and well-loved Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV).

    “The new Fortuner is smarter, stronger and safer than ever!  With its refreshed line-up led by the top-of-the-line premium LTD grade, the country’s best-selling SUV just got better!” Okamoto added.

    The Fortuner has sold over 220,000 units since its introduction in 2005. In 2017, it was crowned the best-selling vehicle in the country. Just this August, the model dominated the mid-sized SUV category with over 30 percent market share.

    With the 2020 update, the Fortuner gets more confident, prestigious, safe, further proving itself a formidable and reliable SUV, perfect for any city or off-road drive.

    Drive in style, drive to lead

    The Fortuner LTD’s comes in a 2-tone color black roof color lineup with a bolder and sportier front and rear bumper design, and machine-cut 18” alloy wheels. Split-type LED headlamps and LED front foglamps, sequential turn signal lamps, and the redesigned LED rear combination lamps give the LTD variant a more dynamic design while maintaining visibility on the road.

    The Q and V variants also get LED foglamps and redesigned LED rear combination lamps, as well as Bi-Beam LED Headlamps with LED Line Guide – Daytime Running Lights. G variants also now come with Bi-Beam LED Headlamps with LED DRL.

    Confidence, ease, and control

The LTD variant features an elegant interior in leather with maroon accents, as well as galaxy black trim and interior illumination which adds to the sophisticated interior look of the vehicle. The Q variant also gets the classy black leather interior complemented by a dark wood trim.

    The driver gets more control over the ride with various modes: Eco and Sport for LTD and Q variants, Eco and Power for V and G variants, and easy access to switches on the steering wheel and through the Apple CarPlay/Android Auto-compatible audio system across all variants. LTD, Q, and V variants feature 8” display audio.

    Comfort and entertainment is guaranteed the whole journey for the driver and passengers as LTD and Q variants have 8-Way Power Adjust front seats, and Front Seat Ventilation System for the LTD variant. Never lose power with the wireless charger and rear USB chargers available on LTD, Q, and V grades, and experience premium sound quality over the LTD variants’ 9-speaker JBL sound system.
