Fortuner has a 53% market share in its segment and Toyota drove in the updated versions as part of its plans to further build on the SUV's success. The car maker states that deliveries of both models of Fortuner have commenced to dealer partners across the country. "Both the SUVs were created purely based on customer feedback thus helping us garner a good response," said Naveen Soni, Senior Vice President, TKM. "The sheer number of enquiries and bookings for both the Fortuner and Legender reiterate our belief in the customer-first approach."
The Legender looks sportier than the regular Fortuner because of a body kit that it receives over the standard iteration. It makes use of a dual-tone colour pattern, sharper headlamp DRLs, different bumpers and a few more cosmetic updates. It also receives larger 20-inch dual-tone alloy wheels for a bolder look and presence.
