Toyota’s new Fortuna has lost two-inches of ground clearance with just the flick of a pen, no busted springs required.
Toyota launched the Fortuna claiming that it had 279mm of ground clearance but as Robert Pepper knows, this is simply not possible when running 265/65/17 tyres on a live axle. Good pick-up Robert.
Robert measured it just to be sure.
Toyota has since amended the Fortuner’s ground clearance down to a more reasonable if less impressive 225mm.
We’re confident Fortuna buyers won’t miss the extra inches they never had.
