On the other hand, the 2.7-litre petrol variant of the updated model is good for 166 HP and 245 Nm. The petrol version is available with a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic gearbox.
If we talk about the exterior design of the car, the updated model sports a lot of changes like a new front grille with mesh pattern, re-designed headlamps with LED DRLs, and a new front bumper with a different design for the fog light housing.
The SUV is also equipped with newly-designed 18-inch alloy wheels, but the overall look from the sides remains the same in comparison to the current-gen version of the Fortuner. The only noticeable changes in the rear-end are the all-new LED tail lamps and a slightly tweaked rear bumper.
The cabin is now equipped with a lot of equipment than before like an upgraded 8-inch infotainment screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The SUV also features adjustable front seats, a 360-degree park assist camera, wireless charging for smartphones, LED ambient lighting, an 11-speaker JBL audio system, front parking sensors, and there are two interior colour options on offer: all-black and chamois.
