    Ever since it was launched here, the Toyota Fortuner has been a runaway hit, so much so that the company had to stop bookings for some time. The face-lifted version launched at the Auto Expo 2012 along with the automatic transmission option only brought more customers into the showrooms. Now, just a year after its launch owing to customer feedback, Toyota has introduced a five-speed auto transmission in the Fortuner, replacing the earlier 4-speed unit. While figures haven’t been quoted by Toyota, we expect the fuel efficiency of the 5-speed slush box to be more than that of the outgoing 4-speed one.
    Other than that, the limited edition Sportivo edition launched last year is now a regular grade as also is the Pearl White Mica colour. Prices for the entire line up ex-Delhi are as follows: Rs 22.3 lakh for the 4x2 AT (5 speed), Rs 22.93 lakh for the 4x2 AT TRD Sportivo (5 speed) and Rs 21.96 lakh for the MT TRD Sportivo. Bookings will open from January 18.
    Commenting on the new introduction Sandeep Singh, deputy managing director and chief operating officer, marketing and commercial said “Further adding to Fortuner’s strength of unmatched road presence and luxury, we have now introduced the 5 speed automatic transmission. The 4x2 automatic transmission is extremely popular, it has been highly appreciated by the customers. The 5 speed AT will further add to the drive quality and comfort. We introduced the Fortuner TRD Sportivo as a limited edition in October last year. Looking at the overwhelming response and its popularity, we have now regularized this grade for all those looking for a unique sporty image. The bookings will open starting 18thJan 2013. We thank all our customers for their response because of which Fortuner continues to be an undisputed leader ever since its launch in 2009 in India.”
