The Toyota Fortuner has been updated for 2015 – with regards to the exterior, the SUV gets smoked head and tail lamps, plus bumper-mounted LED DRLs. The TRD Sportivo decals are new, too.

Also new are some optional equipment – the seven-inch DVD-AVN touch-screen has been upgraded to feature an internet browser, HDMI, Bluetooth, voice recognition, navigation (Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei maps), reverse camera display and Miracast (allows smartphone mirroring of supported apps like Waze or Google Maps). This system is a RM2,990 option.

Also optional are two rear-seat entertainment systems – a ceiling-mounted monitor with integrated DVD player (RM1,800) and just the monitor alone (RM1,500). These systems are only available in conjunction with the DVD-AVN system. Lastly, a portable tyre pump is available for RM200.

Four variants are available – the 2.5 G diesel at RM172,122, 2.5 G TRD Sportivo diesel at RM175,580, 2.7 V petrol at RM179,841 and 2.7 V TRD Sportivo petrol at RM183,325. Prices are OTR with insurance for metallic colours. Two new colours – Attitude Black and Grey Metallic – join the existing Medium Silver Metallic, Solid White and Silver Metallic, and a three-year/100,000 km warranty is offered.
