Moving forward for the auto industry is launching new products, making announcements, inking agreements, developing new technologies, etc. Toyota' global operations was impacted by Tsunami and earthquake in Japan. The production line in India suffered severely from components shortage. Toyota postponed the Altis facelift launch and production of other models was reduced to alarmingly low levels.
It's not like Toyota needs to catch up in the utility vehicles segment. The Innova is the Indian family' most preferred MPV. The Toyota Fortuner is ahead of all other SUVs in town with the BMW X1 being the only real threat to its supremacy.
Yesterday we brought you spy pics of the Innova facelift. Today we have images of the Fortuner facelift expected to make an appearance at the IIMS in Indonesia next month. The cosmetic overhaul puts the Fortuner in line with the Land Cruiser Prado and Land Cruiser 200, the other two SUVs in its portfolio.
Changes are not expected under the Fortuner's bonnet. Will Toyota introduce the Fortuner facelift in India at the Auto Expo next year?
