2016 Toyota Fortuner will launch in India this November

Toyota India has confirmed the launch of all new Fortuner in India in the month of November this year. The car was under a bit of launch confusion as the Delhi diesel ban had a huge impact on Toyota’s sales from last 8 months. When the ban was withdrawn, the Innova Crysta appeared in the top 10 car being sold in the country. First week of November 2016 will mark the entry of the newcomer from Toyota.

The car now comes with updated design, new engine family and much more modern appeal than the current generation of this car being sold in the country. The new car is based on a completely new design language, changing the bold, flat face to a much sharper one. The curves now look more premium than ever while the use of a unique grill and bump in the window line makes it look more upmarket than ever.
