Toyota recently launched a new version of Fortuner SUV in the market called Fortuner GR Sport. It is currently the most expensive version of Toyota Fortuner in India as it is priced at Rs 48.3 lakh, ex-showroom. The SUV has started reaching dealerships and people have started posting videos related to the same on various social media platforms. The all-new GR Sport version of Toyota Fortuner is based on the Legender and it gets some cosmetic updates as well. What does a Toyota Fortuner owner feel about the new GR Sport version. Here we have a video that shows just that.
The video has been uploaded by Ajju 0008 on their YouTube channel. In this video, vlogger went to a Toyota dealership along with his friends to check out the all-new Fortuner GR Sport. Vlogger already owns a pre-facelift Fortuner and appreciates several things about the vehicle. The car had just reached the dealership and the salesman takes them to the roof of the dealership where the cars were parked. First thing that came from vlogger after seeing the GR Sport is that it looks like Legender only.
In comparison to Legender there were minor changes on the SUV. It gets slightly tweaked front grille, bumper and fog lamp housing. GR stands for ‘Gazoo Racing’ and several panels on the car get the GR-S badging. Coming to the side profile, the car gets 18 inch alloy wheels. The design of the wheels are the same they are just finished in gloss black finish for a sporty look. The chrome door handles are now finished in body colour and the SUV does not get dual tone paint job like Legender. Other noticeable changes on the side profile include Red brake calipers with GR logo on it.
The rear gets body coloured trim running between the tail lamps. Other the GR-S badge on the tailgate everything else on this SUV remains the same. The interior on the GR-Sport version is different from the Legender. The basic layout of the cabin remains the same but it is now finished in an all-black theme. It now gets black leather upholstery with GR badging on headrests. There are Red stitching to enhance the sporty character of the SUV. In terms of features it continues to offer a 9.0 inch touchscreen infotainment system, semi-digital instrument cluster, multi-function steering wheel, cruise control, wireless phone charger, connected car features, powered tailgates and so on. It gets metallic pedals, GR logo on steering wheel, JBL speaker set up as well.
Unlike the regular Fortuner, the GR Sport version of Fortuner is available with a diesel engine only. It uses the same 2.8 litre turbocharged diesel engine that generates 205 Ps and 500 Nm of peak torque. It is available with a 6-speed automatic transmission only and the 4×4 is a standard feature in GR Sport. Toyota is said to have re-tuned the suspension of the SUV. The vlogger was not very impressed with GR Sport version. He felt that it is not worth spending more money on a Fortuner that has received minor cosmetic changes.
