The Toyota Fortuner has been one of the most popular SUVs in India for many years now. Since its mid-life facelift’s arrival, the premium SUV also comes in a Legender trim level. The top-end features some styling changes and additional equipment over the standard Fortuner. For example, the Legender has a different front fascia with a new LED headlamp design, front grille, and front bumper. It also gets a black-and-maroon interior. The standard version offers an all-black or chamois interior theme. In a new video, the Toyota Fortuner 4×4 with a manual transmission competes with the new Toyota Fortuner Legender 4X2.
