The standard Fortuner facelift, as well as the higher-spec Fortuner Legender, have been spied on the Indian roads in the past. The latter will boast a sportier body kit which will set it apart from the regular Fortuner. It will benefit from projector lamps, a smaller blacked-out mesh grille, L-shaped DRLs, and a more aggressive-looking front bumper. In addition to that, it will also roll on larger 20-inch dual-tone alloy wheels giving it a bolder look.

Goes without saying, the Fortuner Legender will also pack a larger set of features including wireless charging, lane departure warning system, 360-degree camera, radar-guided cruise control and more.

While the details are yet to be confirmed officially, the new Fortuner is expected to carry forward an updated 2.8-litre turbo-diesel engine which delivers 201 bhp of maximum power and 500 Nm of peak torque, there will also be a 2.7-litre petrol unit which delivers 164 PS of maximum power and 245 Nm of peak torque. The transmission options will include a manual as well as an automatic gearbox unit.
