When joined the crowd at Toyota Sydney HQ in Woolooware a few weeks back for the global debut of the all-new Fortuner, the doors were locked and the windows blacked-out.


“Still finalizing the interior specifications,” Toyota said.

Well ‘finalization’ is…well final…and here are the first official pics of Toyota’s all-new seven-seat SUV – from the inside.

As we know, the Fortuner is based on the chassis of the all-new Toyota HiLux and will be powered by the 450Nm 2.8-litre turbo-diesel (six-speed automatic) or a 420Nm version for the six-speed manual.

The newcomer will be launched in three model grades – entry-level ‘GX’, mid-grade ‘GXL’ and the range-topper is called ‘Crusade’.

Amongst its extras over GX, Toyota Fortune GXL adds keyless smart entry, a premium steering wheel and gear-lever, paddle shifters (when fitted with the six-speed automatic transmission) and privacy glass.

Crusade goes further with satellite navigation, DAB radio, eight-way power adjustment door the drivers’ seat, woodgrain highlights, a power tailgate, soft-touch material for the console box lid, automatic air-conditioning and a 220-Volt accessory connector.

Toyota Fortuner GX and GXL run cloth upholstery in dark brown with contrast stitching while the Crusade scores a leather-accented interior in dark brown or fawn.


The instrument panel looks nice with chrome surrounds for the gauges which are separated by a multi-information display screen which is dot-matrix in GX or full colour thin-film transistor in the others.

Second-row seats split-fold 60:40 and feature top-tether child restraint anchors and two ISOFIX attached points.


The three seating rows are arranged 2-3-2 and Toyota says the Fortuner will provide air-conditioning vents for all rows.

Toyota says Fortuner’s double-wishbone front/five-lick coil rear suspension has been tuned with a unique calibration for the Australian market.
