1. Toyota Fortuner 2018 Philippines: Highlight

The first generation of the Toyota Fortuner was released in 2005, while it did undergo some minor facelifts throughout the years, it’s overall form remained unchanged and stood the test of time. Let Philkotse.com tell you more about one of the most popular SUVs’ in the country today which is the Toyota Fortuner

The Filipinos are known as SUV die-hard fanatics because last 2017 the Toyota Fortuner landed the spot as the country's best selling car even surpassing the sales of the equally popular, reliable and affordable Vios. The all-new 2018 Fortuner has some big shoes to fill in terms of overall performance and its total package if it wants to retain it’s number one spot in terms of SUV sales in the Philippines.

2. Toyota Fortuner 2018 Philippines: Exterior

The new 2018 Fortuner bears almost no resemblance from the previous model. Looking at the exterior of the all-new Fortuner, you will see sleek projector headlamps with smooth flowing lines. The Fortuner has a less rugged appeal compared to the previous version. The vehicle is also equipped with 18-inch alloy wheels and they actually compliment the changes made on the vehicles' exterior.

At the rear end of the vehicle, you would find simple, yet elegant looking taillights. They did not go overboard with the design which blends well with the rest of the body.

Among Toyota cars for sale in the Philippines, Toyota has really made more effort in raising the bar in terms of providing high-quality fit and finish of the Fortuners’ interior. The materials are made of plush dark brown leather giving you an upscale feel of the vehicle.

The gauges or the instrument cluster is quite interesting because you get to have a mix of classic gauges with an added LCD screen in between which provides a lot of useful information.

The second row offers a lot of legroom for back passengers and what's good about the Fortuner is that the seats can be adjusted according to your comfort level.
