Interior and Exterior Design

The side of the SUV impresses with wide thresholds, large side mirrors with repeaters. Most of the rear lights come on the wings, the brightness and appearance add to the car a great appeal. Despite external aggressiveness, its interior decoration speaks about the nobility of the car.  Details looking like tree, leather inserts give the interior a touch of aristocracy.

At the same time, most of the interior decoration is made of ordinary hard plastic, giving the interior brutality.  This is understandable, the manufacturer did not set as its goal, to create a premium car.  From the nice options you need to mention the start / stop button, navigator with DVD player, keyless access, paddle shifters for manual “automatic” mode, electric tailgate, rearview camera, help systems when starting uphill and downhill.  There is also a box for drinks and food with air supply from the climate system, for cooling or heating.

The driver’s and front passenger seats are presented in a new design.  Anatomic backs, a lot of results of auto-adjustment will help to “get used” to the happy owner of an off-road car faster.  But there is one drop of tar: the size of the seats.  For the more well-fed driver or front passenger, narrow armchairs will make some discomfort on the trip.  As for passenger seats 2 and 3, they are quite comfortable and suitable for passengers with any equipment.

    I always liked Toyota’s SUVs for their design, mobility and convenience. It seems that Fortuner 2018 is made also great. In this car I like a lot its body and how they made bumpers. Once again Toyota proves that it can do great cars. Also this car can save your money with revolutionary engine system. So in my opininon Toyota goes by the right way and developing as it always does.
