The 2021 Toyota Fortuner has officially gone on sale in the Philippines. While the SUV has been around in other markets for quite some time now the ASEAN New Car Assessment Program has gotten its hand on it and has thoroughly tested it. Through several crash tests, the refreshed Toyota Fortuner with its new features was able to get a 5-star safety rating.
Part of its success lies in the new technology that Toyota has put into its higher variants. With these newly added features, it has greatly improved the Fortuner’s safety rating.
