Toyota Racing Development (TRD) has tweaked the Toyota Fortuner with a series of suspension, brake and styling tweaks.

THERE’S NO word yet on whether the Toyota Fortuner TRD Sportivo, revealed in Thailand, and for that market, will make it to Australia, but it’s unlikely to arrive as a main line model; the parts and trim might make it here, though.

As you can see in the pictures, the Fortuner Sportive gets new front and rear bumpers and dark chrome finish for the grille. The roof is finished in matt black to contrast with the white body, although an all-black variant is also available. It also offers new 20-inch alloys paired with Dunlop 265/50 rubber. Inside, it gets typical TRD red and black leather, fake carbon-fibre accents for the dash, and an 11-speaker sound system.

TRD has fitted new shock absorbers and springs and fitted new brakes, but don’t expect this thing to worry a Range Rover Sport. In Thailand, the TRD Toyota Fortuner Sportivo will be sold in front-drive by default, although a 4×4 variant will also be available.
