The facelifted Toyota Fortuner was globally revealed a few months back, along with the new model the company also has also revealed a higher-spec 'Legender' variant which was also spotted getting tested on the Indian roads a few days back. Now Toyota India has officially announced that it is launching a new model of the popular Fortuner SUV in India on January 6th.

While the standard Fortuner variant has been updated from inside out, the higher-spec Legender is a sportier-looking variant with sharper-looking projector lamps, L-shaped DRLs, a smaller blacked-out mesh grille, and a more aggressive-looking front bumper. It also rolls on larger 20-inch dual-tone alloy wheels which contribute to its dominant appeal.
