India’s only red-wrapped Toyota Fortuner is a stunner

Toyota launched the facelifted version of their popular SUV Fortuner in the market earlier this year. Toyota had made several cosmetic upgrades to the SUV to make it more fresh both on the outside and inside. Toyota Fortuner is a proper SUV that can do off-roading as well. We have seen several modified Toyota Fortuner SUVs in the past that make it more suitable for off-road adventure trips. Toyota Fortuner competes with SUVs like Ford Endeavour and MG Gloster SUV in the segment. Here we have a 2021 Toyota Fortuner that gets a red wrap all over it and looks hot.

The images of this 2021 Toyota Fortuner with gloss red wrap has been shared by airnoxindia on their Instagram page. The Fortuner now gets a dual tone theme. The whole car has been wrapped to give it a different look. The whole body of the Fortuner has been wrapped in gloss German Red colour and the roof gets a contrasting gloss black treatment. The combination on the Fortuner enhances the look of the SUV and gives it a sporty look.

The chrome elements seen on the Fortuner are retained and not blacked out. This is probably the first Toyota Fortuner in the country get this sort of treatment. Internationally, Toyota Fortuner and Legender are available with a red paint job but, the same is not available here. The wrap job done on this Fortuner looks very neat and we hope to see similar type of customisations on Fortuner and other SUVs in the future.

Coming back to Fortuner, the 2021 version gets a sleeker looking headlamps with projector LED lights in them. The design of the DRLs is also different from the older version. The front grille is now larger than before and the turn indicators are placed on the lower part of the bumper that has also been redesigned. The LED fog lamps are also placed on the bumper. Moving to the side profile, Fortuner gets a different looking alloy wheel. Moving to the rear, the LED tail lights have been redesigned and so is the bumper. There are reflector lamps on the bumper and a chrome applique with Fortuner written on it is also seen here. The roof mounted spoiler has also been blacked out too.

On the inside, the Fortuner gets a revised cabin. It comes with an updated touchscreen infotainment screen that supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Fortuner now gets connected car features, ventilated seats, wireless charging, ambient lighting, diff locks and other features. Toyota has also launched a much more premium looking Legender version of Fortuner. It is available with the diesel engine paired with an automatic gearbox.

The Fortuner is powered by a 2.7 litre petrol and a 2.8 litre diesel engine. The diesel engine on the SUV has been updated and it now generates more power and torque than before. The engine now generates 204 Ps and 500 Nm of peak torque. Both petrol and diesel engine options are available with manual and automatic transmission options but only the diesel engine comes with 4×4 option.
