Toyota will announce prices for the Fortuner facelift on January 6, 2021

It was early this year in July when Toyota officially launched the Fortuner facelift in Thailand. Now the automaker is ready to bring the updated version of the flagship SUV to our market. Toyota India will launch the revamped Avatar des Fortuner in India on January 6, 2021. The SUV has been spotted on a number of occasions in the recent past while being tested on the Indian lawn without camouflage, suggesting that launch is imminent. In addition to the regular Fortuner facelift, the Japanese carmaker is expected to introduce a Legender variant of the SUV.

The Fortuner facelift will include a number of new updates to the exterior front. The front fairing is being redesigned with a larger grille, slim LED projector headlights with LED daytime running lights, sharper features, a revised front bumper, larger inlets, slightly smaller fog lights, a silver underride protection plate and much more. The SUV could get brand new multi-spoke alloy wheels and updated ORVMs while the rest of the profile is expected to remain untouched. In the back you will see a new pair of LED taillights.

The interior of the new Toyota Fortuner facelift should remain very similar to the existing model. However, we can expect some minor updates to improve the overall cabin appeal. The SUV will be equipped with a larger 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, LED ambient lighting, a moderately updated instrument cluster, multifunctional steering wheel and much more.


The SUV has electrically adjustable passenger seats, a charger for mobile phones, a JBL audio system with 9 speakers, a 360-degree camera view, seven airbags, Toyota’s sense of safety, a collision protection system, a lane departure warning and a radar-controlled dynamic cruise control and a number of other functions.


The 2021 Toyota Fortuner has seen a significant update in terms of design and equipment.
