The Toyota Fortuner has received some sneaky upgrades

But they're worth noting
by Jason Tulio | Sep 22, 2017


Sometimes, upgrades to popular models can be so minor that manufacturers won't even bother to put out a press release to inform the media. We don't mean barely noticeable facelifts, either. We're talking same model, same look, but with changes you wouldn't notice unless you looked closely. 

Credit for spotting these particular changes goes to one of our avid readers, who informed us about it after he downloaded a brochure from Toyota Motor Philippines' (TMP) website.

As of last month, all models of the Fortuner now come with ventilated disc brakes front and back as standard. Yup, no more drums. And it's also now equipped with reverse parking sensors across the range, too. Oh, and the base G variant now comes with front and rear automatic climate control. We've confirmed this with the folks over at TMP, so it's legit. 

Do you guys think these additions make the lower-variant Fortuners better bargains? What other features do you want Toyota to incorporate into its popular SUV?
