Not long after posting what was allegedly a leaked photo of the 2016 Toyota Innova, FlyWheel has done the same for the 2016 Toyota Fortuner. The full-model-change brings with it a full looks change, as the Hilux-based SUV puts on a pretty futuristic dress.

Of note are slim headlamps (with projectors and DRLs, according to FlyWheel), a ‘floating roof’ effect thanks to blacked-out pillars, a lower intake that’s joined to chrome-adorned fog lamp housings and kick-up rear haunches you’ll recognise from the Corolla Altis.


Although it looks sleeker and less upright than the model we know and love, the website reports that the new Fortuner will boast more space and luxury inside, while getting new petrol and diesel engines. A source has told the website that production is set to begin in July.

Reports speculate the all-new Hilux/Fortuner/Innova trio to sit on a new ladder-frame platform that could be called Toyota New Global Architecture. There should be new engines as well. Not a bad looker, this new Fortuner, huh?
