What our customers are saying about the Toyota Fortuner in Dubai, UAE
Sergio - When I looked for used Toyota Fortuner for sale in Dubai, UAE, I found many models at a good price including GXR, EXR and VXR trim. But my heart was set out for a TRD. I couldn’t find one so I went for an SR5 model. It may be down on specs, but they are great cars for the UAE especially the desert. Pros: Big appearance and reliable. Cons: Small power with four cylinders.
Khalil - My pre owned Fortuner equipped with a 2.7-litre VVTi engine is fantastic. It may have a small driving force, but it can fit my seven-person family and hit the dunes on the weekend. The options aren’t great in these cars, but next year I'll upgrade to a Premium trim one. Pros: Cabin space and engine. Cons: Options.
Obaid - I was looking to buy an import 4Runner, but I couldn’t find a 2016 one at a reasonable price. Instead, I bought a 4.0 V6 Fortuner second hand in Dubai. Perfect car for the climate and driving through the desert is easy with this much power. Pros: Seating, price and V6 motor. Cons: Interior options.
