For the affluent class, the Toyota Fortuner has been a preferred choice ever since its launch in India. And while it is often spotted simply gliding over potholed roads of the city, Toyota Kirloskar Motor organised an exclusive off-road camp in Mumbai to demonstrate the Fortuner’s ubiquitous off-roading prowess. The camp allowed customers a chance to experience off-roading capabilities like side inclines, water wading, slush pit, gravel pit, big mound and some articulation.

 

Customers, time and again have found value in the pride of owning a vehicle with full-fledged 4WD capability which can also be used for smooth city driving. With this off-road camp, Toyota plans to target existing and potential Fortuner customers in Mumbai to experience the off-roading capabilities in a special set up. This drive aimed to satisfy even the most demanding of the customers, finding value and prestige that goes beyond their expectations.
