Compared to the outgoing model, the new Fortuner is 90 mm longer and 15 mm wider.

Given that the ban on registration of diesel-powered cars displacing over 2000 cc has been lifted in Delhi NCR, Toyota could fast track the launch of the Fortuner in India. It’s unclear if a petrol variant will be offered, while the diesel variant could offer two engine options: 2.4L and 2.8L four cylinder turbodiesel GD units. Transmission options for the latter include a 6-speed manual and automatic, while a 4WD system is likely to be equipped in the top-end 2.8 variant.

Compared to the outgoing model, the 2,750 mm long wheelbase is identical, while the new Fortuner is 90 mm longer and 15 mm wider. The interior borrows a few cues and trim materials from its MPV sibling – the Innova Crysta, yet features a unique design that is a departure over the outgoing model.
