South Africa – Toyota Fortuner Epic launched


Aravind Jayachandran,

It goes without saying that I’m a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Gets cosmetic upgrades.

Toyota South Africa has announced a special edition for its rugged and brute SUV, the Fortuner, which further increases the strong appeal of the car.

The Epic Edition offers a bumper bar and 17-inch dark grey alloy wheels.

Called the Toyota Fortuner Epic, the updates included in the special edition model are only visual. The Japanese brand has confirmed that it will not be limited to a few numbers. Instead 50% of all the 3.0-liter D-4D diesel variants and the 4.0-liter V6 petrol variants will be fitted with accessories exclusive to the “Epic” edition. Accessories include a chrome nudge bar, a matte black tow-bar, rear sill protector, and 17-inch wheels finished in dark grey.

Inside, the cabin is upholstered in leather. Tech equipment include a touchscreen audio with Bluetooth, iPod compatibility, and a reverse camera.

Toyota has already released an update for the standard Fortuner that includes changes such as redesigned headlights and taillights with smoked surrounds, and front foglamps with chrome surrounds.

The next gen of the Fortuner is testing intensely, ahead of its world premiere next year. India would get the new SUV in 2016 but before that additional variants of the current gen model is expected.
