Toyota Zimbabwe was flexing the GD6 Fortuner at ZITF 2022

Toyota Zimbabwe, Fortuner, GD6, ZITF 2022

We couldn’t leave the Zimbabwe International Trade Fair ZITF 2022, without paying a visit to what is probably one of the most famous car brands in Zimbabwe, Toyota. The folks over at Toyota Zimbabwe brought with them three cars, the very popular Toyota Fortuner, the 1.8L Corolla Quest and finally the very interesting Corolla Cross.

The team that Toyota ZImbabwe sent to ZITF 2022 were kind enough to give us a tour of their booth and you can watch it with the player below. Alternatively, you can watch it directly on YouTube with the link here.

The pick of the bunch had to be the GD6 Toyota Fortuner, which has (according to Toyota):

    1. Unfortunately, I don’t think we rate ‘Geneva Motor Show’ treatment as a market. Maybe when those diamond and lithium mines start paying off🤣. I think the Fortuner is an appropriate level of tech for where we are now, but it still would have been nice to see their latest Rav4 and Prius Hybrids. Toyota has been lagging in the BEV space so it might be a while till we see one here.

    1. Lol, I feel your pain, but zim situation aside, now is not the time for good deals unless you win OK Grand Challenge off of one receipt! “Due to Covid” has made it a sellers market world wide.
