Toyota launched the facelifted Fortuner and the all-new Fortuner Legender in the Indian market in January this year. The Legender variant of this full-size SUV looks very sporty and it even gets more features than the standard model. However, it missed out on the 4X4 drivetrain. But now, Toyota has addressed this shortcoming by launching the 4X4 variant of the Fortuner Legender. The new Toyota Fortuner Legender 4X4 has been launched in India today and it has been priced at Rs 42.33 lakh, ex-showroom pan-India. The bookings for the same are now open.
