The Fortuner GR Sport has received new features via Toyota Safety Sense suite, that includes collision avoidance, lane watch, and lane change warning systems. This high-end variant also comes with lane departure assistance, allowing for safer lane-changing maneuvers with automatic control, delay, and speed adjustment. The Legender variant has similar safety updates, while the Fortuner Leader has a RCTA reversing warning system, blind spot warning system integrated into the side mirrors, and a 360° surround view camera.
Toyota has made significant improvements to the driving dynamics of the Fortuner Legender and GR Sport models. Both variants now offer smoother rides and improved control due to upgrades in the suspension setup. The Legender gets an updated suspension setup with special shock absorbers and springs while the GR Sport model gets monotube shock absorbers.
The top-spec GR Sport model now has a newly tuned 2.8-liter GD turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine, generating 220 bhp of maximum power and 550 Nm of peak torque. The 6-speed automatic transmission and switchable part-time 4WD system remain unchanged. The Fortuner Legender also retains the earlier engine configurations, offering a 2.8-liter option with the updated power figures and a 2.4-liter alternative, providing 147.9 bhp and 400 Nm of torque. The base-spec Leader variant is equipped with the 2.4-liter engine as its sole option.

The world is taking the 10 year challenge, posting pictures from a decade ago. While everyone is on a nostalgic trip revisiting memories from a decade ago, we too decided to revisit the cars that were popular in 2009. The auto industry was extremely different then with so many brands yet to make their way to India, while the the massive boom of diesel cars was yet to happen. It were simpler times, some would say. However, the Indian auto industry has not only progressed over the years but also brought a massive change in our safety standards, emission standards and general road safety culture, for the better. So, in our version of the #10YearChallenge, we take a look at the most popular cars of 2009 and how much they've changed in the past decade.
