Chicdriven Tested: The Toyota

THE FORTUNER is a winner due to its flexibility that feeling of driving a van.

My first test for the “Chicdriven test” was a Toyota . My friend Pia Casequin, who I have as my cotester for the makeup test the car to Westgate to drive to BF homes to realize the parameters for the makeup were wrong because of the traffic and stoplights.  This was two weeks before Christmas and I had to it again at the end of January.

In both that I was lent the Fortuner, it had to all sorts of persona changes to give it a major identity During our first stint the car, I was the office purchaser of the raffle prizes, the family the household repairman, (I had a media party and needed to put my house in the order) Yaya, mother,

On the second stint, since it was the of the year, my racer-husband and six of his racing were taken to the track their bags, used to tow a car and more. The car was also brought to a wakeboarding gimmick. I would say the was able to handle our entire well, without becoming

The new Toyota Fortuner comes in diesel and gas variants with starting at P1.381 million for a 2.5 G DSL MT  and million for the 3.0 V DSL AT. The higher variants the VNT technology that aims to fuel efficiency, but just a diesel is already a plus With one full tank of it was able to travel from it came from to Alabang, trips to Makati, a trip to Batangas, another to Carmona, then to Nuvali in Sta Rosa.

  Plus of course we had to do the makeup add several trips up and down Hari road. So after an Chicdriven test  below are the for the Fortuner:


I give the the rating of a Christmas Raffle.  The of the Fortuner, fitted 5 rice 3 microwave ovens, a small machine, 4 desk fans and 3 8 irons, 5 blenders, 2 coffeemakers, a table, 100 anahaw bayong and a worth of groceries. On other it handled five wakeboarders, two and five bulky life at the back.

In terms of storage, I think the is a winner due to its flexibility minus feeling of driving a delivery


THE FORTUNER gives you you are buying which is ‘value for SUV.

The old Fortuner had a bad rep in terms of the Toyota claims to have this problem (can’t never rode the old one).  For me the was OK and was actually comfortable for its price

I wouldn’t mind taking it for drives. During the makeup my cotester Pia timed a total of minutes from scratch to face which is just the average for its class; it gets a of 3 out of 5 for the liquid eyeliner and 3 out 5 for the eyelashes both are doable but not if you are in a hurry it will require several

Interior space

The Fortuner is a SUV with two foldable seats at the The spacing is really impressive and its high roof, no claustrophobic (I have a big issue with in the back) since the seats are and you have enough legroom to Even with one child it easily fits a family of plus one yaya and driver.

The makes you feel a few notches “you got a good deal.”  pro-RH Bill.


The has its own distinct look, you won’t the car. Its design cues are classic, that is why it appeals to a lot people. The vehicle looks tall and proud, which for me is a big specially if the vehicle is intended for use; you feel secure and

The Fortuner gives the impression of function—it’s a solid candidate for who just want a good, SUV with a good resale The frills are just icing on


THE SPACING is really

I drove a 4X2 diesel AT which had a screen 6.5-inch digital LCD built-in DVD player, capable of your iPods via Bluetooth or the old aux jacks.  Also in this model was a GPS system with of Interest which is very for long drives. There is an vent on the middle row with its own and a healthy number of cup holder.

You can never have enough cup when you are housing a number of in the back.

Things I really with the Fortuner
