In the large SUV class, Toyota has three vehicles. The Prado is the big seller in the category and is made to be taken off road.
Second place is the Toyota Kluger which is made more for the family school run.
The third Toyota is their Fortuner which is 11th in the category. It is made for off road at a more competitive price.
They have just upgraded the Fortuner, still with a 4 cylinder 2.8 litre turbo diesel but with increased power and torque lifting maximum outputs to 150kW and 500Nm.
They have also kept the six-speed automatic transmission, but cut fuel consumption by nearly 12 per cent on the official combined cycle: its now 7.6 litres/100kms. The percentage improvement is even better on the urban cycle.
Priced from $49,080 up to $61,400 plus on road costs
