Toyota is still dilly dallying about the Fortuner but it looks like it will come in 2009 and be made from CKD parts so it will be relatively cheap (Rs. 15-17 lakh)

A company source has told me that there are no plans on the Fortuner for India as of now. They feel they volumes are not enough in this segment. They are focussing on a swift sized car right now.

Sadly due to the Indian market perceptions, we will never get to see this true genuine off roader, at 15L its far better and true off roader with the wonderful Prado V6. I have driven it off road extensively in Philippines as my brother in law owns one, I can tell you, its loads of fun and far better off and on road than its counterparts.

Fortuner is a one hell of a SUV, its built on the chassis used by Toyota truck (cannot remember the model). This SUV has high ground clearance with ample of space with quality interiors and especially the car handling. This SUV gives a feeling like you are driving a CAR not a diesel SUV. The power is excellent and this is #1 SUV selling in Thailand for 3 years in row.

 

Heard this is planned to be end of 2009 in india.

Fortuner shares its platform with the Innova, so assembling it should not be a problem. As Designer sf mentioned, Toyota will most possibly bring in the new gen. Fortuner, I too have the same views, because manufacturers like Toyota give 4- 5 years of time to a particular model , after which it is replaced with a new one. Unless Toyota decides to play the Qualis game , but its unlikely as market has matured.
