Toyota has introduced the facelifted version of the Fortuner in the Thailand market. Toyota has updated the SUV after five years of its launch and it has received a number of updates that makes it look fresh in the market. The new Fortuner facelift has started reaching the dealerships in Thailand too and here is the first walkaround video of the SUV from a dealership in Thailand.
The new Fortuner facelift is available in two iterations. There is the regular Fortuner and the Fortuner Legender, which is the sportier version of the SUV. This video shows the regular Fortuner, which is the only version that is likely to be launched in India. Even though Toyota has not officially announced the launch date of the upcoming Fortuner facelift, it is likely to be launched in the second quarter of 2021.
This is a facelifted version so you may think that not much has changed but there are a lot of new features and the Fortuner itself looks quite different from the current version of the car. To start with, the new Fortuner facelift gets a lot of changes on the outside. As the walkaround video shows, there is now a larger grille with newly shaped headlamps. The headlamps have become sleeker and also get a different looking LED DRLs. The turn indicators are located much below in the bumper of the car. Even the bumper has been updated to completely change the way the SUV looks.
At the rear, the car gets dual LED tail lamps that look modern and also features like rear bumper have been updated to match the aggressive front-end design of the car. In all, the Toyota Fortuner looks updated from all around and very modern too.
On the inside, there are a few changes here and there but the major update is the infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay system. The SUV also gets an improved instrument cluster and improved features. The car gets two dual-tone cabin choices and the AC vents are mounted on the roof. In all, the Fortuner’s cabin remains similar to the current version of the car.
The facelifted Toyota Fortuner will be launched in India with a single BS6 diesel engine options. We may also continue to get the 2.7-litre petrol engine option. In Thailand, the 2.8-litre has been improved to provide better power and more fuel economy. India may get the same update whenever the car launches in the future.
