Indonesia – New Toyota Fortuner facelift launched

Posted on: Sep 3, 2013 - 4:22pm IST

While the BMW 1 Series and the Hyundai Grand i10 were launched in India, the Toyota Fortuner received a mild update in Indonesia today.

The facelift changes very subtly with LED lights and a dual tone bumper introduced to the front.

PT Toyota Astra Motor, the Indonesian subsidy of Toyota, has unveiled an updated version of the Fortuner and have also introduced a refreshed TRD Sportivo kit for the SUV. Regular Fortuners now get a couple of LED strips which act as daytime running lights and they’re located on the bumper itself.

The TRD Sportivo edition, one of the better selling and high-margin variants, receives more revisions as you can see from these images. While the regular Fortuner gets a chrome grille, the TRD gets a black colored grille. The bumpers feature skirts and the design of the alloy wheels is also different. A new entertainment system with a DVD player has also been included.

There are no engine upgrades as such and the Fortuner in Indonesia continues with its 2.7-liter petrol and 2.5-liter diesel engine (what we see in the Innova). Two gearbox options are on offer – a 5-speed manual and a 4-speed automatic. While India does not get a petrol, Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) sells a more powerful 3.0-liter diesel and the 4-speed auto box was updated to a 5-speed automatic transmission early this year.

This is the Fortuner TRD which gets a more thorough makeover. The grille and the alloys are also new.

The updated Fortuner now starts at 396 million Rupiah (INR 24.16 lakhs) and ends at 478.55 million Rupiah (INR 29.19 lakhs). The prices have been increased by 700,000 Rupiah (INR 4,270) for the base model and 4.8 million Rupiah (INR 29,000) for the top-end model.

Unlike the Innova facelift that was recently launched in Indonesia, the update for the Fortuner is not that extensive. Nevertheless, the next generation Fortuner is not due until 2016 and we could expect another minor refresh prior to that.

    Have never been able to figure out why a renowned brand like Toyota cannot get a decent designer to work on their models. From hatchbacks to sedans, from MPVs to SUVs (except the top-of-the-line Land Cruisers, Prados and Tundras), each one seems to outdo the other in looking hideous. It’s difficult to spot one cohesive design theme running through any of their models – it’s always a chaotic mix of garish elements, messy lines and random styling inputs. This latest rendition of the Fortuner is no different, with its front-end competing with the Safari Storme in sporting a sissy smile.
