Toyota Fortuner’s new editions on offer

Toy­ota has made an upturn to its South Africa top-sell­ing SUV- Toy­ota Fortuner–with new edi­tions, For­tuner Epic for 2020.

The car­mak­er said the two edi­tions are on offer, each based on the 2.8‑litre GD‑6 deriv­a­tives: the ‘stan­dard’ For­tuner Epic and For­tuner Epic Black.

“Con­struct­ed at the rock-steady basis of its Hilux sta­ble­mate, this 7‑seater SUV has showed that its com­bi­na­tion of beau­ty, off-road com­pe­ten­cy and those-haul­ing capac­i­ty, suits the South African lifestyle. As the name implies, the Epic Black utilis­es black accents to up the ante visu­al­ly,” Toy­ota said in a state­ment on Thurs­day.

Exte­ri­or fit­ment

The auto has an exte­ri­or fit­ment of a brand-name nudge-bar and tow bar.

Epic Black mod­els boasts a black roof, black roof rails, black aspect-view mir­rors and pre­cise, all-black 18-inch alloy wheels.

These high-con­trast fac­tors are best com­bin­ing with Glac­i­er White paint­work at the Epic Black to cre­ate a mod­i­fi­ca­tion pos­i­tive to impress on each bush and boule­vard con­sumers.

The auto­mo­bile could have epic edi­tions in Glac­i­er White, Chromi­um Sil­ver, Graphite grey or Avant-Garde Bronze.
