Toyota introduced the aggressive-looking Legender in the Indian market a few months ago. However, Toyota only introduced a 4X2 variant of the Fortuner Legender. Toyota is now readying the 4X4 variant of the Legender to launch it on 8th October. It will become the most expensive variant of the model.
The Toyota Fortuner Legender is currently the most expensive variant of the model. Looking at the price of Rs 38.3 lakh, ex-showroom, the Legender did get a strong demand from the market. Now, the 4X4 variant will become the most expensive variant that will get a price tag of over Rs 40 lakh, ex-showroom. The price of the new Legender will be revealed on 8th October as per Rushlane.

At the front, the Legender gets all-LED dual-projector headlamps with unique looking LED DRLs. The Legender also gets a different looking grille at the front, which makes it even more aggressive-looking and adds a sportier touch.
The Legender gets a twin grille and the lower part, it gets sweeping indicators mounted on the spoiler of the bumper. The person first talks about the ground clearance of the vehicle, which is 225mm and the boot capacity, which is 330 litres.
The Toyota Fortuner Legender also gets a dual-tone interior with perforated leather seats, a wireless charging system, a powered tailgate that can be opened with a sweep of a leg, and few more features like dual charging points in the rear and more additional options.
Same engine options
Toyota has upgraded the engine of the Fortuner and has made it more powerful. There will be both petrol and diesel engine options. The petrol variants offer the 2.7-litre petrol engine that produces a maximum power of 164 Bhp and peak torque of 245 Nm. The diesel variants get the 2.8-litre V-GD engine that generates a maximum power of 204 Bhp and 500 Nm of peak torque.
The Legender is only available with automatic transmission and is likely to continue to offer only the automatic transmission. With the popularity of the Toyota Fortuner and the exit of Ford from India, there are not many vehicles that can compete with the Fortuner directly. The new variant is likely to push the sales further and will make the Fortuner even stronger from its dominating position currently.
Toyota will also launch the all-new Belta, which will be a rebadged version of the Ciaz in its model line-up. The all-new Belta will be launched next month. Toyota has already discontinued the Yaris to make space for the upcoming rebadged product. In the past, the rebadged products like the Glanza and the Urban Cruiser are doing quite well and the same is expected from the Belta as well.
