I am a Malaysian temporarily living in Thailand. Due to my work reasons, I will live here for at least 10 years.
As an ordinary office worker, I have been thinking about buying a new car recently, which can not only satisfy my needs of work, but also use it for traveling. Enter the Toyota Fortuner - a very expensive car back home, but here in Thailand its somewhat affordable.
2.4 turbo diesel power for just 1.51 million THB!!!
Here’s the kit I got with my car. I’m very happy with the treatment of the sales staff here, very friendly and answered all my questions very skillfully.
There’s LED headlights and fog lamps!
Nice clean smooth elegant-looking rear end. Really really like it!
Speaking of the car interior in Thai version, it’s definitely a highlight! Check out the two-tone highlight!
The interior adopts leather seats, which are very soft.
The rearview mirror can be controlled electrically, and all four door locks are controlled by one button. The plastic finish is nice, but I can see that picking up some scratches in the long run, need to be careful.
Imo, this large central control screen is difficult to use, which may be a shortcoming of the Fortuner ! It also looks very very clunky👎
The air conditioner is also automatic, which is very convenient to use.
Wooden interior panels instantly improve the car’s interior. Nice, I like it a lot!
Besides, there is a multifunctional leather steering wheel that feels nice to touch. Good quality, and its supple and intuitive.
I have to say that the interior of the Thai version is really much better than the old Fortuner and I'm really, really glad I’ve bought this. Hope to hear your experience, fellow Fortuner owners and catch up with you soon!
