Toyota Fortuner Interior Design
Welcome to the inside of the Fortune, with a luxurious cabin and seats wrapped in leather. In addition, the cooled glove box, gear-ship liver and steering wheel are wrapped neatly in the leather. Overall, Luxuriousness has a great meaning from the fitness and quality of the car.
The driver’s seat can be electronically adjusted in eight different ways. The car also has an information-packed LCD display in the device cluster and LED cabin light. Sadly, there is not a sunroof in the Fortuner, which can disappoint some buyers, but the AC and Vent Grill have been given in the second and third lines.
In the second row, comfortable seats and enough space are provided for the passengers. There is enough leg-room for long travelers in the car. Sadly, in the third line, the headroom is insufficient and passengers may feel a little overwhelmed for long periods of time.
Overall, the conclusion is that the present Fortune is bigger than its previous model. Compared to the third line of seats, there is enough packing space for a long road trip!

The engine has been added to the six-speed automatic gearbox. Toyota also offers its Fortune with six-speed manual.
The Fortune Hill Dirrant Control (HDC) feature is only attached when the SUV is in HDC in four-wheel-lo (L4) mode. Electronics of Fortune has insisted on breaking the wheels that it needs. This allows SUVs to descend vertical slopes without jerks.
The L4 mode should be selected only when climbing on a steep slope. The best way to get the most from Fortuneer is to attach H2 mode, which designates front axle and sends all the power and torque for the rear wheels. Apart from this, the 4×4 option is limited to only Fortune’s diesel editions.
Fortune is equipped with two driving power and Eco power modes. Throttle response is more aggressive for faster reactions. In Eco mode, the throttle reaction slows down to improve fuel consumption. Pedal shifts have allowed the drivers to control the gear-ship manual.
However, there is no reason to thank for the working nature of the gearbox. But the Fortune has a full body-on-frame chassis and has 225 mm ground clearance approval and 700mm water-wading capacity. The new Fortuneer is very stable on high speed but the body-roll is noticeable.
