Toyota Fortuner is one of the most popular SUVs in its segment. It is undoubtedly the undisputed king of the segment in terms of sales. Over the years, Toyota added more features, updated the look and also introduced new versions in the market. The Fortuner’s price has also increased drastically. A premium Toyota Fortuner would easily cost you over Rs 50 lakh on the road. If you own a Fortuner and don’t want to spend a huge amount of money upgrading to the latest version, there are modding options available in the market. Here we have one of those videos where a regular pre-facelift Fortuner has been modified into a Legender.
The video was uploaded by VIG AUTO ACCESSORIES on their YouTube channel. The video shows a 2017 Toyota Fortuner model that has been carefully modified into a Legender. The video talks about all the changes that have been made to the SUV. Starting from the front, the original grille, headlight and bumper of this SUV have been replaced. It is unknown whether the parts being replaced are genuine Toyota products or aftermarket units. The front grille was replaced with the gloss black Legender grille.
The headlight has been replaced with all Legender LED headlights with integrated dual function LED daytime running lights. The bumper was also replaced at the front. The Legender bumper looks much more muscular and premium. The lower part of the bumper receives a Satin Red insert to give it a different look. The fog lights are integrated on the bumper and another set of dual function LED DRLs are also placed on the lower part of the bumper. As for the side profile, the Fortuner has now been finished in two-tone. The roof is wrapped in gloss black vinyl and the ORVMs are also blacked out. The chrome window sill, the chrome door handle have been retained. The owner of this SUV also did not want to upgrade the alloy wheels.
As we move to the rear, the taillights and rear bumper have been replaced. The stock bumper was replaced with a Legender bumper with an L-shaped design. The taillights were also replaced. The chrome applique between the taillights has been dechromed to achieve a Legeder look. The Fortuner mark on the applique has however been retained. The overall look of the car resembles a Legender except for the alloy wheels. If the owner had upgraded the wheels, it would look like a Legender from the outside.
The owner has customized the interior of this SUV. The cabin now receives an all-black treatment with red stitching. The stock seat covers were replaced with custom leather seat covers with red stitching. The door trims have been redone and all the pillars are now covered in leather as well as the steering wheel. The car gets the original touchscreen infotainment system and active ambient lights are fitted to the door and dashboard.
