Originally presented at the Indonesian International Motor Show earlier this year, the Fortuner has been finally launched in Malaysia, where the Asian country seems to be the new battleground for the Japanese and South Korean automakers.
The facelifted version of the Fortuner launched in Malaysia has a new reverse-trapezoid chromed front grille, new headlamps and some subtle changes over the fenders and wheel arches. The TRD Sportivo comes with new polypropylene front and rear bumper spoilers while the interior has AUX and USB port connections with steering wheel controls.
The Japanese automaker says that its “new” Fortuner is available in four grade versions, the 2.7V, 2.7V TRD Sportivo, 2.5G and 2.5G TRD Sportivo, where the first two are petrol burners while the other are diesels. The facelifted Toyota Fortuner can be named the most expensive version of the Hilux, because the 2.7V has been priced at RM178.990, the 2.7V TRD Sportive costs RM182.488. The 2.5G diesel is available from RM167.990 and the TRD Sportivo costs RM171.448.
