Toyota Fortuner

It is the current segment leader. The Fortuner is powered by a 2982 cc common rail diesel engine that churns out 163 PS (160 BHP) of power and 35 kgm of torque, aided by a variable geometry turbocharger (VGT).

The choice of transmission is limited to a four speed auto and a five speed manual transmission.

The suspension is on the stiffer side but it soaks up the jerks and bumps very easily without rattling your bones.

Safety features haven't been compromised with electronic stability programme (ESP), electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD) and traction control on offer.

The design is boxy but space and seating comfort is good and there is plenty of head and leg room.
