TOYOTA FORTUNER UPDATED FOR 2015
UMW Toyota Motor Sdn Bhd announces minor updates for the Toyota Fortuner, its full-sized SUV 4×4 offering for the Malaysian market. Externally, the changes for the 2015 Fortuner are the redesigned headlamps and rear combination lamps which have a new dark bezel for a sportier look. The outer lens covering the projector headlights have been designed to protrude more noticeably, giving a powerful image to the vehicle.
DRLs or Daytime Running Lights are now integrated at the corners of the front bumper. The DRLs, which consist of 5 LEDs, are positioned at the bumper to enhance visibility of the vehicle to other road-users.
For the 2015 model year, the Fortuner also gets two more exterior colours, making for a total of 5 choices. Attitude Black and Grey Metallic join the existing three choices of Medium Silver Metallic, Solid White and Silver Metallic.
The five colours are available for all the variants of the Fortuner which are as follow:
Fortuner 2.7V Petrol TRD Sportivo
Fortuner 2.7V Petrol
Fortuner 2.5G Diesel TRD Sportivo
Fortuner 2.7G Diesel
The modern design concept of the 7-seat interior uses the same theme of ‘Advanced & Prestige’. Black woodgrain panels in the Fortuner 2.7V enhances the prestigious image while the black shades around the cabin project a high quality image while also being practical for a SUV which will be used off-road.
The flexible seating arrangement allows for up to seven people to be accommodated with different combinations available depending on the amount and type of cargo to be carried. Cool air is provided for the rear passengers through a ceiling blower which has its own fan speed adjustment.
Toyota Optional Accessories
For the 2015 model year, Fortuner customers have the option of including a new DVD Audio-Video Navigation (DVD-AVN) System. This offers a more advanced level of connectivity where by the system can interface with compatible smartphones (Android and iOS) using WiFi to make it possible to access the internet from the head unit’s built-in Internet Browser application. Bluetooth® connectivity allows wireless music streaming as well as making hands-free calls from a smartphone.
As with most models offered by UMW Toyota Motor, the Fortuner comes with a 3-year/100,000 km (whichever occurs earlier after first registration) warranty. The on-the-road price (individual private registration with insurance, metallic color, Peninsular Malaysia) are as follows:
