The Toyota Hilux pick-up truck received a minor local update last week, and now is the turn of its SUV sister, the Toyota Fortuner. The Fortuner, which has been around in latest facelift guise since October 2011, gets some extra kit with no price increase.

New things include 17-inch twin-spoke wheels in a new dark grey colour. The rim design has not changed, merely the colour. Inside, the previous ‘sandbeige’ colour theme is out, replaced by black. The black combination leather upholstery in the petrol 2.7V variant gets silver contrasting stitching, and the driver’s seat is six-way power adjustable. Diesel 2.5G variants get fabric seats.

Trim wise, the 2.7V’s dashboard features black woodgrain panels, as opposed to silver bits on the 2.5G. All variants now have ISOFIX anchorage points for child seats.

Individual on-the-road prices with insurance for Peninsular Malaysia are as follows:

  • Fortuner 2.7V (P) A/T TRD Sportivo – RM182,482
  • Fortuner 2.7V (P) A/T – RM179,024
  • Fortuner 2.5G (D) A/T TRD Sportivo – RM174,789
