The India-spec Fortuner Leader edition is an accessorised version of the regular SUV

Toyota Kirloskar Motor has brought in a new special edition to the hot-selling Fortuner SUV. The Toyota Fortuner Leader edition is now on sale in India, and there’s something interesting about it! The India-spec Leader edition is based on the regular Fortuner, while in markets like Thailand, the same is based on the Legender! Well, here are some quick facts about the India-spec Fortuner Leader edition:

The Leader Edition is an attempt at making the hugely popular SUV stand out of the crowd. It is based on the 4×2 variant alone and gets no mechanical changes from the regular 4×2 Fortuner. What it has though, is a set of accessories and enhancements that the regular car misses out on. The 2024 Toyota Fortuner Leader edition gets the following enhancements:

  • New dual-tone exterior colours: Super white & A. Black, Platinum Pearl White & A. Black, Silver Metallic & A. black and with Black wheels. (Toyota calls this palette ‘black, white, and clarity’)
  • Better-looking interior with dual-tone colourway.
  • Black alloy wheels
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
  • Wireless charger
  • Auto-folding mirrors
  • Rear & Front Bumper Spoilers

The Fortuner Leader edition definitely looks bold and distinctive. However, the extras it packs- the ones mentioned above are official (TTIPL) accessories that are installed on regular SUVs by authorized dealers, transforming them into Leader edition vehicles.
