Toyota Indus Motor Company (IMC) launched a new variant of its compact SUV Fortuner named ‘Fortuner G 2.7-litre’ on January 1st of 2020.
The Japanese auto manufacturer welcomed the New Year with a new version of Fortuner in the local market. It is said to be equipped with a 2.7-liter engine mated to a 6-speed sequential transmission with paddle shifters. The price of Fortuner G is PKR 7,299,000, which is comparatively less than the existing two variants available in the market. Currently, Fortuner is available in two variants as follows:
- Fortuner 2.7 VVTi (Petrol) PKR 7,999,000/-
- Fortuner 2.8 Sigma 4 (Diesel) PKR 8,649,000/-
However, the prices above are ex-factory prices. Both these versions of Fortuner are offered with automatic transmission. On the other hand, Fortuner G is labeled as an ‘Urban Icon’ by Toyota Indus.
There are many different features in this car that include:
- Smart-Entry with Push Start
- Dual Air-conditioner (Front & Rear)
- Cruise Control
- 3rd Row Seats
- Safety Airbags
- 6-Speed Sequential Transmission with Paddle Shifters
Fortuner G could be regarded as a basic version of Fortuner as it has fewer features and a lower price as compared to the existing ones. It is also equipped with several features that differ from the existing 2.7-litre VVTi variant of Fortuner. The seat material and door trim of Fortuner G is available in Premium Brown Fabric, whereas it comes in leather seating in the existing 2.7-liter variant of Fortuner. Similarly, it also has manual seat adjustment for the driver and passenger at the front. In 2.7 VVTi, the driver’s seat adjustment is powered. The headlamps and fog lamps of Fortuner G have halogen lamps, whereas the 2.7 VVTi has LED headlamps. Fortuner G has no auto-leveling feature in its headlamps, which was present in the existing one. Lastly, it has 17-inch alloy rims instead of 18-inch, which are available in 2.7 VVTi
To round up, the new Fortuner will certainly rule the hearts of many as the car is a beauty on its own.
