However, the Fortuner got an all-new model earlier this year.

2016 Toyota Fortuner India Launch Date

New Toyota Fortuner Launch in India November 2016

Toyota India recently gave confirmation that the new Fortuner will come to India in the first week of November 2016. Although it was earlier being reported the Fortuner will not come before 2017, that is clearly not the case.

Toyota Kirloskar Motor India has been testing the Fortuner on Indian public roads. The manufacturer earlier showed displeasure with NGT’s ban on Diesel cars powered by engines displacing 2000cc or above. However, Supreme Court recently lifted this ban paving the way for the launch of the new 2016 Fortuner in India.
