The Toyota Fortuner and its rivals

Toyota Fortuner

As the Fortuner became a fixture on the streets and on top of sales tallies, many carmakers had a say in the midsize SUV segment. 

So to maintain its lead, Toyota gave the Fortuner attractions to accompany the familiar badge. A more powerful engine, as well as additional tech and safety kit have been wrapped around a fresh new look. 

Those are some of the pros to consider when eyeing the Fortuner. Across its six variants, it wears a price tag of P1.633 to P2.414 million, on par with its wannabe usurpers. 

Mitsubishi Montero Sport (P1.568 to P2.298 million)

Like the Fortuner, a new look (courtesy of the Dynamic Shield) was added to the Montero Sport's arsenal. A 2.4-liter MIVEC diesel engine that makes 179hp and 430Nm of torque powers all Montero trims.

Those numbers are closer to the Fortuner's 2.4-liter diesel with 147hp and 400Nm of torque. Another engine option is a 2.8-liter diesel one with 201hp and 500Nm. 

Isuzu mu-X (coming soon)

Expected to arrive this month, the mu-X will likely rival the Fortuner's safety kit with its Advance Driver Assist System (ADAS) technology. The mu-X is also said to pack larger side rails, eight cross members, and improved torsional rigidity

Toyota's Safety Sense (TSS) makes an appearance in the Fortuner LTD and Q. TSS includes Pre-Collision System, Lane Departure Alert, and Adaptive Cruise Control. Panoramic View Monitor and a reversing camera can be optioned. 

Nissan Terra (P1.649 to P2.339 million)

Entering the midsize SUV arena with a new look is the Terra. Aside from a facelift, the Terra is tech-rich with wireless Apple CarPlay, Bose Sound system, and an 11-inch fold down entertainment screen for second- and third row passengers.

Nissan TerraA Smart Entry and Push Start System are fitted to the Fortuner LTD, Q, and V variants, as well as an eight-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. A nine-speaker JBL audio system thumps in the top-spec LTD.
