The Toyota Fortuner Legender has finally arrived in India. Toyota India has placed its bet in the territory it knows fairly well by now.
The Fortuner Legender is joined by another facelift version of the Fortuner which is going to help the Japanese automaker regain its SUV crown.
While the two variants are riding on some high expectations, it does face stiff competition. The likes of Ford Endeavour, MG Gloster, and Mahindra Alturas G4 might make the Fortuner lose on some sales numbers.
However, out of all those mighty SUVs, the MG Gloster is the one to focus on. With the Legender and the Gloster carrying some same set of features, the comparison between the two is a must.
So, let’s look at the Toyota Fortuner Legender and the MG Gloster and find out which of them packs more punch.
