Compared to the standard version, the Toyota Fortuner Legender has a sportier styling package that gives it a distinct look
Earlier today, we could finally lay our eyes on the 2020 Toyota Fortuner (facelift), which has been revealed in two variants - standard and Legender. The latter is the sportier of the two and can be perceived as the euivalent of earlier version's TRD Sportivo model. While we've already spent enough time checking out the new model in the official images that were released recently, here, we've got the first-ever real-world images of the Toyota Fortuner Legender.
Toyota Fortuner Legenderis available in three paint options - White Pearl CS with black roof, Emotional Red with black roof and Attitude Black Mica colours
Compared to the standard version of the 2020 Toyota Fortuner, the Legender looks sportier owing to the unique styling package it carries. Its front-end features a sleeker upper grille, a bigger lower grille and sleeker LED headlamps. Together, these features make the Legender enjoy a distinct identity. Even the front bumper is different and looks a tad more aggressive, while the side profile features new 20-inch mags in a dual-tone finish. The posterior features a new bumper. The more premium version is even available in two-tone colour options with black being the contrasting shade.
Inside, the Legender comes with the same aesthetics as the standard version. However, it carries many extra features in the form of a 9-inch touchscreen infotainment unit with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, wireless smartphone charger, 9-speaker JBL audio system, ambient lighting package and two rear USB ports. Yet another highlight is the Toyota Safety Sense suite that packs in Pre-Collision System (PSS), Lane Departure Alert (LDA) and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control.
Toyota Fortuner Legender is available with two engine options - 2GD-FTV 2.4-litre diesel engine and 1GD-FTV 2.8-litre diesel engine. Both the motor come mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission each, while 4WD is optional. The smaller motor offers 150 PS and 400 Nm, while the latter outputs 204 PS and 500 NM. The Legender even boasts upgraded shock absorbers for improved ride. There are good chances of the Legender making it to our shores as it is the modern that has received the most number of upgrades. The updated SUV could reach our shores by the end of the current calendar year.
