Spy shots showing the Toyota Fortuner testing in China. The Fortuner is a low-cost SUV based on the Toyota Hilux pickup truck. The Toyota Fortuner, aka Toyota SW4, is produced in seven countries, including Thailand, Egypt and India. The appearance of a test car in China means it will likely be launched on the China car market, but how exactly is yet unclear.
Toyota already makes the Land Cruiser, Land Cruiser Prado, and RAV4 at its FAW-Toyota joint venture, and the Highlander at its Guangzhou-Toyota joint venture. The Fortuner might fit just under the Highlander in Toyota’s line-up. Some Chinese media speculate Toyota might import the Fortuner into China, but that seems unlikely because its price would become to high.
We will, keep you posted.
Most likely under the Guangzhou Toyota lineup. If I can remember correctly the Fortuner was designed in Thailand.
