The facelifted Toyota Fortuner is a fairly well-equipped SUV in its stock form, additional accessories help make it more premium
Toyota recently launched the highly anticipated 2021 Fortuner Facelift earlier this month. Although it commands an extra premium in terms of its price, its offerings are also premium in terms of its styling as well as its features. Now, the Japanese auto brand has released the updated SUV’s list of official accessories.
These accessories could be availed from any Toyota dealership. Even though the latest iteration of the seven-seater SUV is much better to look at than its predecessor, the company is offering a ton of options in order to spruce up its looks both on its exterior and interior.
To start with its exterior, Toyota is offering chrome embellishment around its headlamps, taillights, rear number plate housing, door handles, door visors, ORVMs and window sills. Customers could also opt for silver side body cladding that gives additional protection to the exterior body panels of the car with its name engrossed on it. For front doors, one can opt for welcome (or puddle lamps) which when opened, illuminate the SUVs name on the ground.
To enhance its overall butch appearance, Toyota is also offering Fortuner badging on its hood with bold lettering. The SUVs front fender also gets the option of a rearview mirror for additional safety. Other exterior accessories included are a rear bumper step guard and muffler cutter.

Other notable inclusions to the accessory package are window sunshades, an illuminated scuff plate and a digital video recorder (DVR).
