For the everyday motorists, Foton showcased three of their consumer offerings: the recently-launched Toplander Xtreme, the Gratour, and the Toano. The Toplander SUV on display at PIMS was adorned with off-road extras like a snorkel, rain gutters, tow hitch plus 20-inch alloy rims, and 265/50 all-terrain tires.

Priced at just P490,000, the Gratour is Foton's most affordable vehicle. The seven-seater minivan is Euro IV compliant and boasts ample leg room and cabin space, as well as respectable fuel efficiency. 

On the other side of the spectrum is the Toano, a fifteen-seater executive van that's also powered by a Cummins diesel engine. The variant on display was the limited Executive variant which features a high roof, individual adjustable headrest and backrest, automated electric footboard, and dashboard panel with multi-information display. Its nautical-inspired interior includes leather captain's seats, blue LED pin lights, and a comprehensive entertainment system.
