Toyota has launched the Fortuner facelift in India at a starting price of Rs 29.98 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). However, this time around, the Japanese carmaker has launched not one but two iterations of the full-size SUV, the Fortuner and the Fortuner Legender. The SUVs had been previously launched in the global market with good success. Find out inside 2021 Toyota Fortuner Facelift vs Fortuner Legender.
The biggest differentiating factor between the two SUVs is the front fascia; the regular Fortuner sports a large front grille, with chrome side-lines, while Legender variant gets a split front grille and piano black outlining. The front bumper, bash plate, and even the foglamp housings are different. Both models get LED headlamps, but the design is different on each.

The grille is also sleeker while the bumper is redesigned with a larger central air dam and sleeker fog lamp housing. The Legender also comes with dynamic turn indicators. Coming to the side, both SUVs look identical, except for the 18-inch alloy wheels. The Legender gets dual-tone machine finish wheels whereas the standard models get a monotone look.
The regular Fortuner gets two interior colour choices – Black and Chamois – while the Fortuner Legender offers a single option, a dual-tone Black and Maroon scheme. The Fortuner Legender also gets rear USB charging port and wireless smartphone charging, ambient cabin lighting, and gesture-operated electronic tailgate.
