After getting spotted a dealership yesterday, Toyota Fortuner GR Sport variant has now been launched in the country for a price tag of Rs. 48,43,000/- (ex-showroom).
The Toyota Fortuner GR Sport (GR-S) is a sporty edition of the regular Fortuner wearing many aggressive cosmetic bits. Unlike the Fortuner Legender edition currently on sale in India, the GR Sport gets prominent piano black finish at many places on the exterior.
At the front, the fog lamps get large piano black inserts intersected by a white panel. The Legender edition, on the other hand, only gets tiny black inserts in the said area. The front skid plate is again finished in piano black unlike the Legender which gets brushed silver finish.
While the Legender Edition gets dual-tone OVRMs, the GR Sport features all-black units. The alloy wheels are also finished in piano black to render the SUV a sporty look.
There are only subtle changes at the rear with the GR Sport getting body-coloured tailgate strip with Fortuner name embossed on it. There’s also the edition badge on the right side. The L-shaped bumper inserts have been retained from the Legender.
Other than these, there are not many changes to the exterior. The sportiness accentuates to the interior as well with an all-black theme.
The exclusive suede and leather seats are complemented by smoked silver metallic and matte carbon finishes on the instrument panel and center console. The car gets GR badged Start Stop button and a unique GR combination meter.
The Fortuner GR Sport shares its powertrain with the existing Fortuner but comes only with the 2.8-litre diesel engine mated to an automatic gearbox with a 4-wheel drive system.
The Legender with the same powertrain now commands an ex-showroom price of Rs 53.04 lakhs and the GR Sports undercuts it by a good Rs. 4.5 lakhs.
