The CLS is yet another vehicle from Mercedes-Benz, which gave birth to a new body style that went on to find favour with almost every direct competitor. Back in 2003, the CLS four-door coupe came through as an eye-catching car and found favour among many for its new design. With the CLS, the German automotive giant tried combining the best of two worlds – coupe and four-door saloon. Did they succeed? The answer is a clear affirmative and since October 2004, about 170,000 units of the CLS have moved out of showrooms globally.
Fortuner turned out to be a runaway success in India from the moment it went on sale.

Over a period of time the vehicle successfully retained its demand and became one of the most successful models in Toyota’s Indian portfolio.
