Toyota Fortuner line-up receives price cut

Toyota Fortuner range

PRICE cuts across Toyota’s Fortuner line-up now sees entry into the range beginning at $42,590 for the base model GX manual.

It’s now cheaper than ever before to sit your derriere in one of the Fortuner’s seven seats, with price drops of between $5000 and $5500 across the board. In addition to the price drops, each variant within the Fortuner line-up has been improved with additional features.

LEDs replace the halogen fog lamps.

Tony Cramb, Toyota Australia's executive director of sales and marketing, said the changes would meet the desires of consumers who seek an off-roader but still desire the niceties and comforts of an SUV.

“The added features further boost the appeal of Fortuner, which is recognised for offering the space, comfort, convenience and quality of an SUV while delighting owners with its prodigious off-road ability,” he said.

VFACTS reports that 190 Fortuners left the showroom floor in September and 1960 Fortuners have been sold so far in 2017.
