Toyota Fortuner Competitor Analysis

Toyota Fortuner in India is one of the largest selling Sports Utility Vehicles, which competes with Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara, Chevrolet Captiva, Mitsubishi Pajero, Nissan X-TraiL and BMW X1. Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara never stood a chance against Fortuner, as Maruti has an image of small car-maker. Hyundai Santa Fe lacks the strong muscular looks that characterise Toyota Fortuner. Honda CR-V suffers from the lack of a diesel engine in today's time, when petrol prices are increasing day by day while Fortuner is offered with only a diesel engine.

Ford Endeavour is a strong competitor of Toyota Fortuner car. However, Ford does not have a well-spread dealership and service centre network and this goes against it. Skoda Yeti is yet another car that competes with Fortuner, but it is more expensive to maintain.

Mitsubishi Pajero is also a competitor of Toyota Fortuner car, but is now almost at the end of its production cycle. Tata Aria has many advanced features that are not present in Fortuner, but, it is yet to make its mark in the market. Nissan X-Trail is a successful SUV of the company across the globe but here it suffers, as Nissan has poor service centre network.

The recently launched Renault Koleos looks good on paper, but its actual performance is unknown. On the other hand, Fortuner has proved its mettle in the last 2 years. Mitsubishi Outlander has an impressive exterior appearance and several features, but it does not have the off-roading capabilities that are present in Toyota Fortuner. A cross-over car, BMW X1 is also in the similar price range as Toyota Fortuner car, but is less powerful.

Toyota Fortuner LPG/CNG Version

No LPG or CNG version is available of Toyota Fortuner car.

Toyota Fortuner Pros

Huge size, striking road presence and a strong built to last body are some of the major advantages of Fortuner. In addition to that, a powerful engine that churns out an excellent acceleration that is helpful in driving in all conditions is a plus point of Toyota Fortuner. Moreover, comfortable and durable interiors, an exceedingly good fuel economy along with the brand name of Toyota creates wonders for Fortuner.

Toyota Fortuner Cons

Uninspiring interiors that look from a segment below, lack of rear disc brakes, poor handling at very high speeds are some of the cons of Toyota Fortuner cars.

Toyota Fortuner Conclusion

A car that will outlast all-terrains, all kinds of weather, Toyota Fortuner car is a one-of-its-kind SUV, which is competitively price. Characterised by its stunning design and powerful engine, it has lots of advanced features, which makes it a product of wide demand.
