Dec 15, 2011 – The New Toyota Fortuner Outguns Opposition- Now in Nigeria
The makers of spirited cars constantly strive to find the optimum balance between comfortable drive and dynamic handling while facing the challenge of building capable workhorses that are also comfortable and safe – something which Toyota has achieved with remarkable success with its newly launched Fortuner. naijagists.com
Toyota very cleverly booked its Fortuner range in for a bit of enhancement and a trim of surgery but other than that, it wisely decided not to tinker too much with the successful formula that has made it Nigeria’s darling carmaker. With the newly-unveiled updated model range now in showrooms of Toyota Nigeria Limited, TNL says the main appeal of the new addition will be its price tag of N7.4million, which is less than previous cheapest opposition model.
From the front, the new Toyota Fortuner showcases the fresh three-tier chrome grille layout as well as a revised bumper bar design including new spotlights. The Toyota Fortuner also gets a newly designed rear end, wheels and a spruced up interior with higher quality materials. A new instrument cluster and uprated equipment options also heighten the attractiveness. Up front the grille has been tweaked with touches of chrome and the new clear headlight clusters are slightly more prominent. The bonnet line has been sharpened and given a tad more bulge spotting new, centrally mounted air intakes. The bumper has been squared off and is kitted with a new fog light design.
Toyota Fortuner Top Features
The Fortuner delivers a rich lineup of features that guarantee passenger comfort. The car is equipped with ABS brakes, interior chrome finish, dual zone A/C (front and rear), folding electric mirrors, parking sensors, remote power door locks, audio steering controls, and Ipod AUX. Additionally, the car is equipped with two airbags for driver and passenger, as well as many other advanced features.
According to Ifeanyi Oscar of Tripple Consortium, Apapa, I am of the opinion that Toyota has produced a thoroughly luxurious automobile of the highest elegance calibre. The prestigious taillamps are without a doubt the centrepiece of the modern styling revisions. The translucent lights with red overtones evoke the sporting prowess that encapsulates the Lexus RX 350 and its environmentally friendly twin, the superlative RX 450h. One could only assume that such an automobile would sell very well considering the majesty displayed.
