Toyota Fortuner is one of the most successful sports utility vehicles (SUV) in the country. Available in diesel variant automatic transmission in pearl white with attitude black dual tone exterior, the SUV is priced at Rs 33.85 lakh.

And among Toyota’s offerings, the Fortuner has enjoyed unwavering loyalty from customers who appreciate its exemplary driving experience in all terrains, unique sense of power, style, imposing road presence and adventure, coupled with the low cost of ownership and high resale value,”  Raja said.
