Here's a video showing the Toyota Fortuner facelift doing the 0 - 100 kmph acceleration and braking test excellently.
The Japanese auto giant Toyota has been working on the facelifted version of the Fortuner for quite some time and spy shots of the same have occasionally surfaced on the Internet. Expected to be launched next year, the Toyota Fortuner faceliftwill take on the likes of Ford Endeavour, Mahindra Alturas G4 and the newly-launched MG Gloster in the domestic competition. According to some recent reports, some select Toyota dealers have started accepting the pre-bookings for the new Fortuner. Here, we found a video showing a facelifted Toyota Fortuner doing the 0 – 100 kmph acceleration in less than 10 seconds. Check it out!
The video starts by showing the new facelifted Fortuner inside and out. After the walkaround, the vlogger gets to the behind its wheels for the acceleration and braking test. The international-spec version of the Toyota Fortuner is offered with a 2.8-litre turbo-diesel engine option that generates 201 PS of max power and 500 Nm of peak torque. In the acceleration test, the Fortuner can perform a 0 – 100 kmph acceleration in 9.80 seconds merely, which is quite a feat for an SUV of its size. In the braking test, the Fortuner manages to come to a halt from 100 kmph in just 3.3 seconds.
The Toyota Fortuner facelift will feature a host of cosmetic change compared to the existing model available in India. The updated SUV will get a sharper design with bi-projector LED headlamps and LED DRLs, a larger blacked-out grille, a redesigned front bumper, new front and rear skid plates, a gloss black roof spoiler among others. Apart from that, the overall design of the new Fortuner remains the same. The interior of the new SUV has been updated as well, seeing the introduction of a new touchscreen infotainment system along with a 360-degree camera, wireless smartphone charger, automatic climate control, cabin mood lighting and more.
In India, the Toyota Fortuner facelift is expected to carry forward the same set of engines from the current model. This includes a 2.7-litre petrol and a 2.8-litre diesel motor, churning out 166 BHP/ 245 Nm and 204 BHP/ 500 Nm, respectively. Transmission choices in the SUV will comprise of a 6-speed MT and a 6-speed automatic unit. The SUV will be available in both 2WD and 4WD versions. With the updates in place, the 2021 Toyota Fortuner will require a higher price tag over the current vehicle, which currently costs around Rs 28.66 – 36.88 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). It would be interesting to see how it fares against the competition which has been stiffer by the arrival of the much affordable MG Gloster.
