The new facelifted version, without a doubt, will strengthen Toyota Fortuner’s influence in the market. Before the entry of the new facelift, the Fortuner is claimed to hold 53 per cent of the total market share. Toyota expects to increase the sales with the addition of the special Toyota Fortuner Legender, hence, expanding its bite in the market. At this point, Toyota has sold over 1.7 lakh units of the Fortuner in India.
Compared to the standard version, Toyota Fortuner Legender is rolled off with a host of cosmetic updates and feature enhancements. As far as the exterior is concerned, the Legender gains a unique identity with a slightly revised front avatar. The new front updates come in the form of quad-LED headlights, a sleeker grille and a more dominant air dam. It also adorns 18-inch alloy wheels with dual-tone machine finish, which is not available on the standard model. To the rear end, there is a slightly different bumper with black treatment. On the inside, a dual-tone Black Maroon theme, along with other minor styling elements, has set the top-spec Legender apart from the regular version. Some exclusive features of the Legender variants over the regular version include wireless mobile charging, rear USB port, ambient lighting, and a foot-activated power liftgate.
For the powertrain options, similar to the pre-facelift version, the 2021 Toyota Fortuner continues to offer two choices of engines, a 2.7-litre petrol engine and a 2.8-litre turbo-diesel engine. The petrol unit with a maximum power of 165 PS and a maximum torque of 245 Nm is paired to either a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic gearbox. The turbo-diesel engine generates 204 PS and 500 Nm (6-speed AMT)/420 Nm (6-speed MT). The four-wheel-drive system is only available on the diesel version. Toyota Fortuner Legender is offered exclusively with a diesel-AT drivetrain along with the rear-wheel-drive system only.
