Toyota Australia sales boss, Tony Cramb, says the Fortuner is a genuine player in the market.

“If Fortuner could speak, it would have a strong Aussie accent as the most Australian car Toyota has ever imported to this country,”

“Fortuner is the turbo-diesel alternative to the similar-size petrol-only Kluger and offers an affordable choice for those who aspire to own a LandCruiser,”

“Fortuner is a chameleon, transforming seamlessly from a prestigious urban transporter to the most rugged of off-road explorers, ideal for any adventure. It’s a Tardis too - spacious on the inside yet easy to manoeuvre through city traffic.”
