Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) updates the infotainment system of its bestselling midsize SUV, the Toyota Fortuner. Starting this September, all six Fortuner variants will now have the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility features pre-installed.

Along with the software upgrade, the Fortuner’s head unit gets a new dedicated SD card slot for multimedia content, 6.75-inch total screen size, and 512MB of RAM with 8GB of ROM (both previously at 256MB). The updated Toyota Fortuner is now available in all 70 Toyota dealerhips nationwide.

“Toyota listens to the demands of the local market, and we are always on the lookout when it comes to adapting technologies that make driving easier, safer, and more enjoyable for everyone,” said TMP first vice president Cristina Arevalo. “Equipping the Fortuner with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is something our customers will surely appreciate.”

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are both smartphone mirroring services that allow drivers to focus on the road with features such as GPS navigation, music playback, and managing texts and calls — all through the vehicle’s built-in display. The common goal is to minimize driving distractions by making it easy for drivers to control these factors by using voice commands, touchscreen panels, and traditional knobs or buttons on their car’s infotainment setup.

For the year to date, TMP has already sold an industry-leading 12,519 Fortuner units. After Metro Manila, sales of the SUV has been strongest in Calabarzon (Region IV) and Central Luzon (Region III).
