Talk about premium SUVs in India and the Toyota Fortuner immediately gets a mention. This time around, the car manufacturer will be launching the Fortuner TRD Sportivo edition in India to further boost its sales this festive season. Mechanically the vehicle will continue to be powered in existing engine options while changes will be limited to cosmetic detailing.

The upcoming Fortuner TRD Sportivo will be the second sporty model from Toyota after the Innova Touring Sport. Recently, the vehicle was spotted in white with black detailing to distinguish it from a regular version. The vehicle gets a new body kit with front and rear bumper extensions. The chrome finish grille as seen in the standard model has been replaced with a gloss black finish and gets the ‘TRD Sportivo’ badging. The SUV gets black and red body decals on the side along with new black and silver finished alloy wheels.
