Here's a video which shows a Toyota Fortuner easily making its way through a flooded street of Gurgaon while an Audi Q5 is seen bogged down
That the sewage system of Gurgaon is pretty much non-existent is something that's quite widely known by now. And because of this, in every monsoon, the streets get flooded a fair bit. In this situation, having an SUV is a much more convenient option. Toyota Fortuner can be one of the best SUVs one can use to counter the water-logged streets of Gurgaon. Here’s a recent video where a Toyota Fortuner owner crosses a heavily waterlogged stretch of road. This video has been uploaded on the YouTube channel of Prateek Rathi. In this video, one can see the YouTuber roaming in Gurgaon with his wife in his Toyota Fortuner. The couple drives around on the water-logged streets and even comes across a bogged-down Audi Q5 that was being towed by a tractor (we can only imagine the kind of bills that the owner would have been served with).
At one point of the video, the driver is showing stopping the SUV for a while because that street was badly flooded. Then both of them decide to take it as a challenge. As soon as the YouTuber starts driving his car, the water level gradually starts increasing, until a point it gets so much that it reaches the bonnet of the Fortuner. Also, it's after this point that the couple comes across the bogged down Audi Q5. But, the Toyota Fortuner successfully crossed the waterlogged road. This video simply shows the amazing capabilities of the Toyota Fortuner. The YouTuber says that he is impressed with his Toyota Fortuner and has tested its capabilities several times.
Talking about Toyota Fortuner, it derives power from a 2.7-litre petrol engine, which puts out power and torque outputs of 164bhp and 245 Nm. The engine comes paired with a 5-speed MT or 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox. The SUV also gets propelled by a 2.8-litre diesel motor, which is capable of shredding out 174bhp of peak power and 450 Nm of twisting force. Transmission duties are done by a 6-speed MT or a 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox. The SUV is retailed at a starting price of Rs 28.66 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
