  • Bookings for the facelifted Toyota Fortuner have commenced unofficially. 

  • It will get styling upgrades, new features and probably, an uprated diesel engine. 

  • The Legender will be a more premium alternative, demanding a premium over the regular variants. 

Toyota is set to bring in the facelifted Fortuner on January 6. It seems like the facelifted model will be available in two broad trims: standard and the more premium Legender, as seen on the Thai-spec model. Ahead of its possible January launch, the Legender has been spotted testing during a TVC shoot. 

The Toyota Fortuner Legender will get several styling upgrades for a refreshed look. Its nose is entirely new with a smaller mesh grille, more aggressive bumpers, a larger air intake, revised fog lamp housing, bi-LED projector headlamps, and a small skid plate. The front profile seems sharper and sportier than the facelifted model. 

The Legender also gets a new alloy wheel design. Further, it sports a dual-tone colour theme, sequential LED turn indicators, a new rear bumper, and blacked-out ORVMs. This variant misses out on chrome detailing and instead, goes with the sportier glossy black treatment. 

Inside the cabin, it is expected to get an all-black theme with leather seats. New features expected onboard include a 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, wireless charging, 360-degree camera, and a powered tailgate with the sweep-to-open feature.

The Legender is likely to get the uprated 2.8-litre turbo-diesel engine that will now produce 204PS and 500Nm (27PS and up to 80Nm more than before). Its 2.7-litre petrol engine should be retained with the same power figures. The transmission options should also remain the same as earlier. The petrol engine comes with a 5-speed MT as standard and the diesel with a 6-speed MT. Both of them also get a 6-speed AT as an option. 

Expect the Toyota Fortuner Legender to demand a premium over the regular facelifted variants, which could be more expensive than the pre-facelift model. The outgoing pre-facelift model retails from Rs 28.66 lakh to Rs 34.43 lakh (ex-showroom New Delhi). Many dealerships have already started accepting bookings for the facelifted Fortuner for a token amount of Rs 50,000. It will continue to rival the likes of the Ford Endeavour and MG Gloster
