Toyota Fortuner 5-speed auto review, test drive

When first introduced in 2012, the automatic version of the Fortuner got a four-speed transmission unlike most contemporaries. Five-speeders were considered entry-level while six-speed transmission was the norm. That said, the Fortuner’s four-speeder was up tothe job – it was fast-acting enough and a clever selection of ratios meant you never really missed a fifth gear.
