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

The automobile could have epic editions in Glacier White, Chromium Silver, Graphite grey or Avant-Garde Bronze.
The carmaker added a touch of class with metal scuff plates and Epic-branded carpet set.
