Fortuner MHEV shares mild-hybrid tech with Hilux MHEV
Looks similar to the Fortuner Legender sold in India

It comes with a 2.8-liter diesel engine mated to a 48V mild-hybrid battery that provides an additional 16hp and 42Nm for a total output of 201hp and 500Nm of torque. 

Toyota says the Fortuner MHEV is 5 percent more fuel efficient than the erstwhile non-mild-hybrid Fortuner 2.8 diesel.

Additionally, it also gets a idle start/stop feature.
A 6-speed automatic gearbox is standard with 2WD or 4WD on offer.

Fortuner MHEV has been revealed for the South African market, and is expected to be sold in other countries in the coming months.

It remains to be seen if the Fortuner MHEV is eventually brought to India as well.
