New Toyota Fortuner 2016

It comes with the new TNGA platform and the new design is responsible for a sleeker and less heavy SUV which in turn aids improved ride and handling. With the view of making the model more modern, the styling does just that with sharp lines, LED projector lights, slender headlamps and LED DRLs.

Sleek headlamps and sharp styled grille makes the car look all the more aggressive. Included in the front bumper are integrated reflectors and a larger air dam which again add to its muscularity. The higher end models which are fully loaded come with 18inch alloy wheels whereas the lower models come with 17inch steel wheels.

At the back, there are LED taillamps. There is quite a bit of chrome too all over the vehicle which adds to the premium feel. Of course, its proportions are what have been and continue to be the USP of the Fortuner. The ground clearance is massive which makes it a perfect fitment for those off-roading enthusiasts.
