We take a 2015 Toyota Fortuner and go for a drive with the owner, Asher to the boondocks to check out the comfort and handling.
Built on the same IMV platform as the Hilux, the Fortuner has a SUV body instead, and the combination of double wishbones in front and coil spring suspension at the back give it a more comfortable ride.
Driving on the highway, it is fine, and is definitely more comfortable than my Hilux, but how will it do on dirt – will it be too soft, or will it be difficult to drive?
Anyway, driving on dirt is always a challenge – we have two views – one from the inside looking out, and one just from the front screen – this will allow you to see the difference , because then you can see the hand action required as you make the Fortuner do your bidding. Reminds me of the good old days, hahaha.
Vehicle on loan courtesy of Asher, thank you very much, and I know you enjoyed the ride.
