The SUV segment has been evolving rapidly in India. There are SUVs in all sizes, from compact to full size. This compact SUV provides an SUV feel, but they are still small. For the proper SUV experience, you need to go for full-size SUVs. The full-size SUV market is dominated by the Toyota Fortuner. The Fortuner has been the king of this segment for quite some time now. But it is expected to face some competition soon with several launches in this segment. In today’s article, we will be looking at the upcoming Toyota Fortuner Competition SUVs.
Skoda Kodiaq RS
The Kodiaq facelift was globally unveiled in April this year. The updated Kodiaq gets subtle changes at the front. It will be powered by a 2.0-litre TSI petrol engine capable of producing 187bhp and 320Nm of torque. The transmission will be handled by a seven-speed DSG gearbox. It will also get a 4×4 drive option. It will include features like a 9.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system, adaptive LED headlamps, a panoramic sunroof, a 10.25-inch fully digital instrument cluster and a 360-degree camera. Skoda is expected to launch the Kodiaq in October.
The Terra is a rugged SUV manufactured by Nissan. It is powered by a 2.5-litre diesel engine with a six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic gearbox. The Terra comes with two-wheel and four-wheel-drive options. It comes with features like an eight-inch touchscreen display, intelligent around-view monitor w/ moving object detection, intelligent rearview mirror, blind-spot warning and lane departure warning.
Upcoming Toyota Fortuner competition Hyundai Palisade
The Palisade is Hyundai’s most premium offering. Considering Hyundais push in the Indian market, we may see it in India. It is expected to be powered by a 2.0-litre turbo-diesel engine that is capable of producing 161bhp and 375Nm of torque. This unit comes mated to an eight-speed torque converter gearbox and powers the rear wheels.

The Telluride can be powered by the same 2.0-litre turbo-diesel engine as the Palisade. It will come with features like ventilated seats, automatic high beams, dual sunroofs, heads-up display and rain-sensing wipers.
