Sales of Toyota products in the last two months have been impacted by unforeseen holidays that were called on account of the unrest in Bengaluru in September as well as the festival holidays in October. Now, production of its portfolio is in full swing, including the all-new Fortuner which will go on sale on November 7.
The Fortuner will reportedly sell in six variants: 4×2 Petrol MT, 4×2 Petrol AT, 4×2 Diesel MT, 4×2 Diesel AT, 4×4 Diesel MT, 4×4 Diesel AT. Prices are expected to range between INR 27 Lakhs – INR 32 Lakhs (ex-showroom). Its main rivals are the Ford Endeavour and Hyundai Santa Fe.
