Toyota Fortuner - High Hopes - Disappointing attitude
Today I have spoken to Toyota Bangalore, according to them dealers have started taking bookings, I asked for specs & to my HIGH disappointment, I was told this much awaited SUV would be launched with Manual Transmission, mean lowest end model available (Model name - 3.0 G M/T) in Thailand (None of the other markets of South East Asia has manual transmission except Thailand). In Thailand this model is available on road at 10 Lac Bhat (Rs. 14 Lacs) considering FTA with ASEAN countries, means no customs on auto parts imported from there, and Toyota Fort. being assembled here in India (With quite a few parts sourced locally like tyres, Dash Board & probably manual transmission of Innova & many other Innova parts) premium charged by Toyota of whooping 43% approx on Thailand prices is really like looting, which every car maker specially Japanese are doing. I really love this car & have driven many times in Thailand, latest in Feb 09 in Phuket & really dying to buy one for me but with launching of lowest end; it is just like insulting choice & buying powers of Indians. I was ready to shell out upto 22~23 L for model 3.0 V A/T, but finally I am really heart broken & disappointed with Toyota's attitude
