The 2020 Toyota Fortuner, Alphard Gains Added Safety Features


Toyota Motor Philippines updates the Fortuner SUV and Alphard luxury MPV with more safety features this 2020.

The country’s best-selling mid-sized 7-seater SUV finally gets a rear backup camera as standard as part of its safety package. The image generated by the camera is projected onto the 6.5-inch infotainment system which itself saw an upgrade in 2019 to include standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The rear backup camera though doesn’t come free. The 2020 Fortuner sees a P 26,000 price increase across the board. Their new suggested retail price is as follows:
  • Fortuner 2.4 G 2WD M/T – P 1,633,000
  • Fortuner 2.4 G 2WD A/T – P 1,723,000
  • Fortuner 2.7 G 2WD A/T – P 1,723,000
  • Fortuner 2.4 V 2WD A/T – P 1,947,000
  • Fortuner 2.8 V 4WD A/T – P 2,286,000

Meanwhile, Toyota’s almost-always-out-of-stock Alphard luxury MPV receives the Toyota Safety Sense driver assist system starting this year. The system, which first debuted on the Hiace Super Grandia Elite adds four additional driver assist features: Pre-collision System (PCS), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Lane Departure Alert (LDA), and Automatic High Beam (AHB).

Along with the new safety features, the Alphard also gets standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well.

The new safety features (and enhanced infotainment system) though, sadly mean a hefty price jump too. The 2020 Alphard’s price tag is now up to P 3,910,000—a P 170,000 jump from its old price of P 3,740,000. But hey, if that lessens the chance of having those nasty POGO shuttles cut you off? It’s definitely worth it.

The 2020 Fortuner and 2020 Alphard are now both available at all authorized Toyota dealerships nationwide.

  1. Does the Alphard at least includes a backup camera now?
