Cosmetic upgrades for the Fortuner Leader series include changes to the new radiator grille, front and rear bumpers, 18in alloy wheels, black rear door garnish and black side steps.
Dual-zone air-conditioning is also offered for the 2022 model, including retuned suspension for better comfort and road-holding, as well as Toyota Safety Sense features such as Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
