Toyota Fortuner Facelift Exterior Details
Changes are abundantly visible on the new Toyota Fortuner. The standard trim gets a large slatted grille along with new LED headlights. There are impressions in the design that are certainly more like the forerunner, but overall you will see newer updates. The front bumper this time is tweaked to offer better approach angle while off-roading on tough terrains, it slides more towards inside now and gets appealing skid plates. The rear bumper looks a little bulky, but adds to the SUV’s cosmetic appeal and looks macho. The spoiler is big enough and so are the windows that give you optimum visibility even from the 3rd row. The silhouette is quite similar to the current model’s.
The Fortuner Legender looks more premium and reminds you of the Land Cruiser Prado and the Lexus sort of SUVs. The bumpers of the Legender look more aggresive and muscular and one would certainly give the SUV its way if he notices it coming from the rear in his IRVM; credits its bold character! The grille of Fortuner Legender isn’t as big as the standard trim and blends well with the SUV’s character. Likewise, the headlamps too aren’t as big as the standard trim but nicely glower at the rivals and show them the SUV’s dominance. The bumpers carry the premium appeal but do not lose the masculinity. Triangular shaped fog lamps are nicely embedded inside these lamps. The sides and the rear too finely blend with the Fortuner Legender’s image. The bigger diamond cut alloy wheels won’t go unnoticeable!
