    Now if you read carefully you will see your link has got no relevance to the question asked by the OP re certain new models under consideration for purchase, as you are referring to an old article which is quoting (outdated) stats from 2010 & 2015, for a totally different model range, whereas in fact we:

    I’m not going to argue with you on this one but as you might have already seen in this thread not even a branches security could prevent criminals from taking new Toyota’s.

    I love my wife and kids too much to risk them being included in a hijacking which can turn out to be fatal.

    I suppose the choice is with each one of us.

    So, finally took the 2.2 Auto 4x2 XLT Everest for a test drive. Very comfortable drive. Must use the gearbox in sport mode, suits my driving style. Handling is great. Power for overtaking is a challenge with the body weight, my D4D Auto 4x2 Fortuner kills it dead. Sync 3 is apparently iOS friendly, not Andriod so much

    I'm not going to argue either, but what you are saying makes no sense at all.

    If you plan travelling beyond South Africa's borders select the Fortuner. Assistance thins the further north one travels for the Everest, however Toyota seems to have a footprint most places.

    As a fortune and Everest owner over the last 2 years. I think Toyota wins with engine, but Everest is better looking. Here at my zululand civil and plant company we have around 80 bakkies in our fleet and the toyotas are always getting stolen. In fact last night at 1am my driver was hijacked and held at gun point.

    You are using this as a family car so go ford due to a slightly lesser chance of theft and crime. But the fortuner is a better engine.

    No disrespect to Ford Brett, and indeed I own one, however I have found Toyota in Zim to hold a better spares inventory and my post was solely based on my past experience.

    I Have to agree, everest is nice and comfy, well built.

    Power for overtaking is a challenge compared to my fortuner, We were 4 Adults in the car,air-con on, no luggage,200km traveled. Kinda Scary, it feels like the car is not moving fast enough even with the gearbox in sport mode.
