Before greeting the new India-bound Toyota Fortuner Legender, let's check out this modified Toyota Fortuner Legender from Brunei.
Toyota is readying the new facelift Fortuner for the Indian market. Besides the launch of the regular Toyota Fortuner facelift, the Japanese carmaker will also bring in the Fortuner Legender, the special butch-up version of the SUV. Before making it to the Indian shores, these new models have gone on sale abroad.

While Toyota has added various styling enhancements to the Legender variant, there is still room for improvement. That’s when the modifications come into play. In fact, we have seen a handsome modified version of the Fortuner Legender with even more muscular and sporty styling from the Brunei market. Let’s run through all the new elements on this well-done customization job.
On the front end, this Fortuner Legender comes with a reworked bumper with a new skirt, which emphasizes on the sportiness of the modified vehicle. In addition, the contrasting red highlights also accentuate this aspect of the design. ZC Car Bodykit, the car custom garage behind this modified model, also added a LEGENDER mascot on the top of the front grille.
On the side profile, there is not much going on except for the new dual-tone 6-spoke rims wrapped by Toyo Proxes tyres. There is also a small change on the ORVMs with new chrome inserts and red accents. To the rear end, the SUV features a faux quad-exhaust system which is not available on the stock version. What’s more, the rear bumper also receives the same treatment for the front bumper, which is a skirt with red highlights. Moreover, the car mod studio has also applied heavy black tint for the windows, creating some climax for the design.

These are basically all the changes delivered on the customized Brunei-spec Toyota Fortuner Legender. All in all, it looks like an aspiring TRD version of the Legender. Speaking of the Legender, this model gets some extra goodies and aesthetic elements in comparison to the regular version, for example, full-LED headlights, different alloy wheels, and restyled front end.
In our market, Toyota Fortuner facelift alongside the Fortuner Legender will arrive on January 6, 2021. This facelift version will continue to source power from the 2.8-litre diesel engine but in an upgraded form in a higher state of tune. It is expected that this engine will deliver 204 BHP/500 Nm against 177 BHP/450 Nm as on the outgoing version. On the other hand, the 2.7-litre petrol engine which is good for 166 BHP and 245 Nm will remain unchanged. The official prices of this new model are not revealed yet. However, it is expected to be priced from around Rs 29.5 lakh to Rs 36 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi).
