Toyota have launched fortuner in india, its a great suv. but i dint expect this from toyota they have launched very simple version for india. No features like sun roof, xenon lights, power washers, parking sensors, dvd in car, rear view camera, motorised seats,etc. Which r very common now days in so luxurious vehicle. And essential. Which toyota should think about. I was waiting 4 fortuner since 2005 when heard about it. And when it launched i got very dissappointed with this very basic model.
