Toyota's Fortuner Debuts at DriveHappy with Toyota Roadshow!

 
THE ALL NEW 2016 FORTUNER THE COMMANDING PRESENCE
 
The long-awaited debut of Fortuner’s first full-model change since it was first launched in 2005. In order to meet the evolving demands of markets around the world, extensive progress has been made in terms of its style and prestige. Meanwhile, Fortuner’s toughness and core capabilities have been even further enhanced. The new Fortuner’s appeal is best expressed through its positioning statement: The Commanding Presence. Through this full-model change, Fortuner sets out to redefine what it means to be an SUV.

The all-new Fortuner impresses from the start, holding sophisticated strength with a refined rugged feel that is both tough and cool. Once inside, you get a sense of presence and authenticity. Every aspect of its interior was included to exude refinement and luxury; from intricately selected and crafted materials to ergonomically shaped seats that ensure optimum support. An unmistakable feature would be its advanced dashboard cluster with an optitron meter with plated rings that delivers a luxurious appearance.
 
 
The Fortuner not only received a major facelift in the looks department, but its performance has been significantly improved on all terrains. It’s newly developed rigid frame structure and high tensile, anti-corrosive steel panels deliver exceptional toughness in all environments. The engine has been further refined to include an added Variable Valve Timing (VVT) on the exhaust side for the 2.7L Dual Variable Valve Timing-intelligence (VVT-i) engine. Aside from the enhanced combustion efficiency, engineers have also reduced the weight and the friction within the engine, delivering greater fuel economy and output. The new 6 Speed Super ECT transmission with AI-shift control promises more responsive and seamless acceleration.

 
Hiroki Nakajima - Fortuner Executive Chief Engineer

“The simple fact that Fortuner was the SUV derivative of a pickup truck created our sense of purpose for the development of the next generation. Our commitment to cast aside this image formed the direction of our entire development program.  

Our first step was to understand the real usage. My motto is, “seeing is believing”, so I went to over 100 countries to witness how Fortuner is actually used. As it turns out, most are customized with items such as oversized tires, lifter kits and tough steel bumpers to create an impression of hardcore off-road performance, even though they are used around town as stylish, everyday transportation. The off-road modifications are more of a fashion statement than a practical necessity. Also, though most owners are men, I noticed many women driving Fortuner for its stylish appearance and high seating position, as compared to a passenger car.

In order to compete with eye-catching new challengers, while also avoiding the outdated image of a boxy SUV, Fortuner had to evolve with extra emphasis on a stylish, cool presence.

In the new Fortuner, customers will find value and prestige that goes beyond their expectations. I am confident that we have honed Fortuner into a machine that can take its rivals head-on, even in the highly competitive SUV category.”
 

 
 
History

Fortuner’s story begins with the 1998 debut of the Hilux Sport Rider, which was built in Thailand and initially sold in a number of Southeast Asian countries. In 2005, this model went global and became known as Fortuner, earning admiration around the world for its impressive quality, durability, reliability and all-terrain capability. 

The name Fortuner originates from the word “fortunate”. It was chosen to symbolize a new type of SUV aimed mainly at the higher-income and trendsetting customer segment. The name fits perfectly, as the vehicle brings fortune to customers who long to own a prestigious SUV. The name also evokes an image that is strong yet active, allowing it to cross borders easily to be accepted by people around the world.

THE MUSIC RUN by AIA Singapore was a SUCCESS!! | 23 April 2016

 
THE MUSIC RUN™ BY AIA  SELL-OUT EVENT SAW OVER 10,000 PEOPLE RUNNING TO THE BEAT OF MUSIC


Singapore, 23 April 2016An infectious and energetic blend of music filled the atmosphere at Sentosa as over 10,000 participants, aka Music Runners™ ran, dance and partied to the world’s loudest fun run - The Music Run™ by AIA. The sell-out event, which saw tickets sold out one week earlier, held in Singapore for the second year, puts music at its core to deliver a unique, immersive experience that has seen The Music Run™ grow globally in just three years since it was first launched in Kuala Lumpur in 2014.


A phenomenal and futuristic run, The Music Run™ by AIA is one of the fastest-growing fun runs worldwide and is slated to hit 40 cities in 18 countries this year and experienced by over 350,000 Music Runners™ the world over.  Offering a unique total music immersion experience, the concept has been making waves in Asia, including a sold out event in Kuala Lumpur last year.

“We are stoked with the sell-out response for this year’s event and this shows that Singaporeans relish unique experiences. It is this fun, non-competitive factor and the winning combination of two popular interests, music and running, that has given The Music Run™ its universal appeal,” said Ben Pember, Executive Director of Exceed Sports & Entertainment, organiser and Event Promoter of The Music Run™ in Singapore and Asia.

Starting from 3.30PM this afternoon, Music Runners™ from as young as 3 months old to over 83 years old, grooved to the rousing beats of top-voted songs like “Demons” by Imagine Dragons and “How Deep Is Your Love” by Calvin Harris & Disciples in the AIA Rock Zone and W Dance Zone respectively, voted via a bespoke online music app developed in partnership with Spotify®. The 5km route, which comprised five 1km Music Zones, was lined with over 120 concert quality speakers pumping 150,000 watts of music the entire way!

Stacked with endless music-inspired entertainment, Music Runners™ chilled out at the mobile WOOBAR by W Singapore Sentosa Cove and were entertained with games of Giant Jenga, an AIA Vitality Extreme Keyboard (which plays tunes when stepped on), interactive AIA Giffy Wall. Fitness First led the warm-up before the flag-off. 

In each Music Zone along the 5km route, Music Runners™ were treated to special interactive activities: from epic photo moments with Harley Davidson bikers in the AIA Rock Zone; giant candy pops and bubble machines at the Pop Zone; pop star doppelgangers and lookalikes in Old School Zone; giant Graffiti wall in at the AIA Hip Hop Zone; to killer selfie and wefie moments in the W Dance Zone. 

This year’s event also featured a Silent Disco, and a giant inflatable Super Slide situated in the Music Village which provided some good old carnival fun with a jump and slide combo!
 
The fun continues after the run at the Music Festival, as popular local band The Sam Willows belted out their hit songs and rising Australian DJ Sam Withers kept the party mood high with pulsating mix of feel-good songs and upbeat tracks.  

Ms Ho Lee Yen, Chief Marketing Officer of AIA Singapore, said, “The Music Run™ by AIA underscores AIA Singapore’s commitment to healthy living by encouraging our community to take active steps to leading  healthier, happier and better lives. As the Presenting Sponsor of The Music Run™ for the second time in Singapore, we are pleased that the event continued to be a phenomenal success. Its unique concept of combining music, lifestyle, creativity and fitness in one event had ignited a truly rocking experience for those making strides to achieve little health victories just by being part of the fun.”
