2. Toyota Fortuner 2019: Exterior Review

At first glance, the 2019 Toyota Fortuner quite resembles its predecessor. It’s still a stylish and contemporary SUV but bigger and better looking.

The front grille must be chromed while the front bumper is now larger with fog lamps and LED lights. It also features standard 4-door chassis made of hardener metallic and aluminum formed outlines around the side profile. To tell the truth, a Fortuner with modern lines is much more pleasant to the eye.

3. Toyota Fortuner 2019: Interior Review

Inside of the 2019 Toyota Fortuner has also undergone subtle adjustments. Bigger dimension means more space for the 7-seater’s cabin. Three rows of seats are arranged in the 2-3-2 configuration and are all wrapped in leather. Though legroom has been reduced, the Fortuner 2019 cabin still ensures a level of usability and comfort found in a family-friendly transporter.
