It’s hard to believe, but the previous Toyota Fortuner was launched in South Africa back in 2006. The model showed impressive stamina in the market; even towards the very end of its shelf life, it still sold very well, holding the number one spot in the segment of bakkie-based SUVs.
However, Ford’s new Everest, which arrived late in 2015, has certainly given Toyota something to think about. With a high level of comfort and interior space, not to mention good looks, how does the latest Fortuner compare with the significantly improved Everest?
In this video, we investigate:
- Ride comfort on gravel and tar
- Interior space and comfort
- Boot space
- 3rd-row seating comfort
- Infotainment system capability
