    The Fortuner is built on the IMV platform, that also houses the Innova. Despite its body-on-ladder antecedents, the Fortuner like the Innova is car-like to drive. It's also got the more powerful engine here - a 3.0-litre engine diesel pumping out 168 bhp versus the Ford Endeavour's 154.5 bhp. The new facelift on the Endeavour also means that the larger 3.0-litre engine comes with a 5-speed auto, while the Fortuner makes do with a 5-speed manual. Fret not, an automatic is bound for India too in the coming months. On the inside, the Endeavour has more space, but the Fortuner is more comfortable. The seats are well bolstered and don't give you the truck seat feel of the Endeavour. The third row is a bit cramped, but it's easy to get in and out of them. Where the Endeavour tends to feel imposing, the Fortuner makes do with good on-road presence. It also feels easy to drive and live with. Price wise, the Fortuner may lose out on a bit, but we think it's worth the extra money to splurge on the big T and is our comprehensive winner here.

    I have a question-
    Fortuner costs about two and a half times more than Safari, for sure it is a better vehicle but is it two and a half times better ?

    hehe....no doubt its not two and half times the car...but i guess when you go to buy a car, you have a budget in which you want a particular thing...the land rover is eight times the price of a safari but no matter how good it is...its never gonna be eight times as good...or is it? :p, but more in keeping with the point...out of the two...the endeavour wins hands down...the fortuner has a skateboard kind of chassis which makes the floor of the car very high, and its uncomfortable for the people at the back...the fortuner being based on the innova...is very comfortable...rugged...and powerful(in all the right places), whats still awesome is the fact that inspite of being a bulky giant...it drives almost like a car...it never feels cumbersome to drive, and you always know where your front left wheel is...and more importantly what its doing...the quality if the interiors in the innova are much better, and they'll last you as long as the car itself...and in my personal opinion its the best car for 20L!
