BS6 Toyota Fortuner Launched in India: Toyota has upgraded its Fortuner SUV to comply with the upcoming BS6 emission norms. In terms of pricing, it remains unchanged when compared to the BS4 model of the SUV. The price range starts at INR 28.18 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The BS6 model of the Fortuner is available with two engine options: a 2.7-litre petrol engine and a 2.8-litre diesel engine.
Mechanically, the 2.7-litre petrol engine is capable of producing 166HP of maximum power along 245Nm of peak torque. It comes mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. The diesel model, on the other hand, churns out 177HP of power and 420Nm of utmost torque. It gets paired to a 6-speed manual gearbox.
There is also an option for a six-speed automatic gearbox for both the engine options. However, the 4×4 drive system is only available in the diesel variant of the SUV. The automatic model of the diesel Fortuner generates a slightly higher torque figure at 450Nm.
The bookings for the BS6 Toyota Fortuner started last week while the car remains the same cosmetically. It is a bit surprising that the brand has not revised the prices of the BS6 model. The interior of the SUV also remains untouched. It continues to feature the same leather interior and a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with embedded navigation. In terms of safety, the SUV is equipped with 7 airbags, hill-hold assist control, ABS and EBD.
The closest rival to the Toyota Fortuner is Ford’s Endeavour. Going by the recent sales report of January 2020, the BS4 model of the Fortuner SUV was able to bag 228 units whereas the Endeavour was good enough to post a sales figure of 167 units.
