Toyota Fortuner Legender VS MG Gloster: A SUV Comparison

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.

The MG Gloster was released late last year with much fanfare. The latest car from MG has launched quite accurately and with an attractive price as well. The MG Gloster starts from a very competitive price of ₹29.98 lakhs and ends at ₹35.58 lakhs, which makes it a car to be considered.

On the other hand, from the garage of the Toyota comes the Legender which surely comes at a much larger price tag. Starting at a price of ₹37.58 lakhs, Toyota has surely decided to capitalise on the Fortuner brand name here.

When it comes to the exterior and the looks of both the vehicles there’s a very clear distinction. While the Gloster tends to be a bit more composed and luxurious on the outside, the Legender knows how to play hard off the road.

Toyota has decided to shed away from the typical idea of the Fortuner and tried to make it look like it should- rugged yet practical. The sportier additions include quad-LED headlamps. The front also gets a redesigned bumper and a larger redesigned central air dam.
