After the recent launch of Toyota  India's first new compact hatchback Toyota Etios Liva, Toyota Motor Corp., a Japan-based automaker has released the face lifted images of its highly popular SUV, Toyota Fortuner on internet in Thailand. However, the pictures had been leaked on the internet a little ahead of its official release. The new Toyota Fortuner is speculated to be launched in 2012, which we are going to see in Indian car market as well. The Toyota Fortuner SUV was launched six years back in 2005 and this is the first time to undergo a face-lift, though not a major one. The actual face-lift of Toyota Fortuner is expected to happen in 2013. As of now purely cosmetic changes have been made to give a fresher look to the SUV.

As we see from the images, the new Toyota Fortuner has sharper finish and the interiors are plusher than before. The Toyota Fortuner has been a successful car with or without the facelift and hence, Toyota Motors has no reason to launch the upgraded version anytime soon.It is the frontend that has undergone maximum change, though the rear end and the interior changes cannot be ruled out. The grille, the headlamps in the front and the bumper are modified to give an edgy finish. The headlights are adorned with projector lamps along with the conventional lights. The frontend change looks more effective with the huge chrome grille with horizontal slats.

Now, coming to the interiors, the steering wheel which used to resemble like that of Toyota Innova now looks more like Toyota Camry. The dashboard colour change is also quite evident. It is more evident to Indians more than anybody else as the Toyota Fortuner has been marketed in India locally with beige and wood finish as Indians have an appeal to this combination. The Toyota Fortuner has been very successful in India. Toyota India has also launched new Toyota Carolla Altis last month and upgraded Toyota Camry is also expected to be launched in mid 2012.
