As for the exterior design, it is a tad similar to the design seen on the regular Adventure spec-trim except for the TRD body kit. However, the considerable changes are made under the skin to enhance the off-roading. This new off-road variant will be available in 18-inch matte multi-spoke alloy wheels with black finished. The special Falken Wildpeak Trail tyre is also equipped to ensure the driving safety under all-weather conditions. Particularly, the square shoulder design can reduce punctures and the open-shoulder layout can build up the unique design for the car.
