Mileage Of Toyota Fortuner: Claimed Vs Real

The Toyota Fortuner has been one of the best-selling premium off-road SUV in the country with average monthly sales of over 1700 units. Its price starts at ₹ 28.2 Lakhs and goes upto ₹ 33.97. Fortuner comes with muscular appearance and high-riding stance that most SUV owners look for, also with Toyota’s great reliability and powerful diesel engine with perfect dynamic performance. And how about the mileage of Fortuner? With a 2.8-litre, 4-cylinder turbo-diesel engine or a 2.7-litre four-cylinder petrol, will the fuel-economy look so bad? Let’s find out the answer.

Official Claim

As per ARAI, the mileage of Toyota Fortuner Manual Transmission Petrol Variant is 10 kmpl, for Diesel Variant is 14 kmpl. Automatic Transmission Petrol Variant is 10 kmpl and for Diesel Variant is 15 kmpl. The official claim is actually not that bad, but how about the reality situation?

Actual Mileage

After the road test, we finally find out the actual mileage of Fortuner, including city mileage and highway mileage. The city mileage ranges from 8 to 12 kmpl, while the highway mileage ranges from 10 to 14 kmpl. It's worth to mention that, the city mileage is mainly up to your driving style and traffic situation. Fortuner's mileage is almost the same as its most popular rival Ford Endeavour, and it’s worse than the Volkswagen Tiguan. While both Endeavour and Tiguan come with smaller displacement engines, the mileage of Fortuner is quite acceptable. Also, the Fortuner gets 4X4 and larger size, which will also affect the mileage a lot.

Conclusion

After the test we can find that, the real-world fuel efficiency reveal that the Fortuner is not as fuel efficient as the manufacturer’s claim, but the inaccuracy is still acceptable according to me. After all, Fortuner gets a 2.8L or a 2.7L engine under its hood, and is also a 6-seater with AWD.
