The Foton Toplander (sold as Sauvana in other regions) is set to make its Philippine debut during the company's 2015 Big Show on October 2.
The launch of the Toplander marks the official entry of Foton into the growing local SUV market. Foton describes the Toplander as a “masculine, rugged and intelligent” SUV.
Design-wise, the Toplander is fitted with a bold front grill along with sweptback headlights and a large bumper. Turning at the side, the vehicle has prominent wheel arches and sharp character lines. The rear on the other hand has large taillights, a roof-mounted spoiler, and an aggressive bumper.
In terms of the dimensions, the Toplander measures 4830mm long, 1910mm wide and 1840mm tall.
The Toplander is powered by a 2.8-liter Cummins diesel engine. During the 2015 Big Show, Foton will preview the two variants of its first ever SUV: the 4x2 and the 4x4.
The Foton 2015 Big Show will be held at the World Trade Center in Pasay City on October 2 to 4. The show will be open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and admission is free.
