The Standard and Legender variants are different in terms of styling as the latter flaunts bolder design as compared to older model. The 2021 Toyota Fortuner Legender exterior highlights include a refreshed front fascia with sleeker dual projector LED headlamps with LED sequential turn indicators at the bottom. In addition, there is a thinner upper grille while the lower grille has grown in size. Though, both the grilles are finished in black color with a new layout. There is a new skid plate with an even edgier front bumper to sum the changes upfront. The SUV rides on newly designed dual-tone finished 20-inch alloy wheels with black ORVMs and roof as standard.

Speaking of the Standard variant, it features toned-down styling with LED projector headlamps. The upper front grille, however, identical to the Legender grade, is massive in size. Other exterior elements at front include tweaked fog lamp housing and bumper. The 2021 Toyota Fortuner Standard rides on 18-inch alloy wheels which flaunt a plain design while missing out on the dual-tone finishing. In fact, it also misses out on black ORVMs and LED sequential turn indicators while the rear bumper is retained from the older model with no changes. Inside the cabin, both the Standard and Legender variants have similar layout and features. As compared to the current model, it gains a few new features like Optitron meter with a 4.2-inch MID, wireless charger, ambient lighting, bigger and a 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system.
