Toyota Fortuner prices hiked by up to Rs 1.10 lakh

The Toyota Fortuner has just received a range-wide price bump, varying from model to model. This is not an uncommon practice, as many carmakers use the new year to revise the prices of their line-ups to counter the increasing input costs. This is however, the third price hike for the Fortuner facelift, as the first came in April last year and the second came in August.

  • The Fortuner 4x2 variants' prices are up by Rs 66,000
  • The 4x4 and Legender variants' prices have increased by Rs 1.10 lakh
  • The Fortuner’s features list remains unchanged
