Design-wise, there aren't any significant changes to the styling. However, the Fortuner Leader Edition comes equipped with 17-inch blacked-out alloy wheels, and front and rear lip spoilers. There are not any changes in the interior either, but the Leader Edition gets a tyre-pressure monitoring system (TPMS). All of these will be fitted at an authorised dealership. 

Additionally, it is available only in dual-tone shades, including Super White with black roof, Pearl White with black roof, and Silver Metallic with black roof. 

Toyota Fortuner Features

Aside from the TPMS, all other features of the Leader Edition remain identical to those of the standard Fortuner. These include an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with wired Android Auto/ Apple CarPlay, dual-zone climate control, a 6-speaker sound system, wireless phone charging, and a powered tailgate.

On the safety front, it gets seven airbags, electronic stability control, ABS with EBD, front and rear parking sensors, a rear parking camera, and hill hold assist.
