Check out this Toyota Fortuner, which has been fitted with TRD Sportivo body kit. It's loud, brute, and sporty at the same time.
Toyota Fortuner is one of the most off-road worthy SUVs that are on sale in India. Modified examples of this brute behemoth can be often seen equipped with lift-kits and other off-road friendly customizations. However, here’s one, which has been fitted with a sporty body kit. The kit comes from Auto Marc. The kit comprises of a TRD Sportivo inspired front and rear bumper, which look sportier in comparison to the stock units. Also, the front bumper gets a fancier air-dam beneath it, while the grille now gets a piano-black finish. However, the headlamps are the stock OEM units.
Moving over to the sides reveal the aftermarket running boards that are beefier in comparison to the stock unit and sync in with the overall appeal of the car. A blind spot mirror is also mounted on its front right fender. Door visor and faux hood vents are also a part of this TRD kit. Talking of the rear facet, it too gets the loud treatment as the front. It has been fitted with a TRD bumper at the lower-end and gets a roof-spoiler along with a trunk-mounted one. The roof-mounted spoiler gets a sleek LED stop lamp. The tuner has also used D-pillar mounted LED lamps.
The tail lamps on this Fortuner are aftermarket units as well. They now feature a Urus-like glow-pattern. The cost of this TRD Sportivo kit is Rs. 1.49 lakh. Overall, the car looks way too loud to our liking. But the kit aids the Fortuner with enhanced road presence and appeal. However, the 18-inch dual-tone wheels feel a tad smaller with the TRD Sportivo kit in place.
This one, however, is the 4X2 variant of the Fortuner. The SUV is available with 2 engine options – 2.7L petrol and 2.8L diesel. The naturally aspirated 4-cylinder petrol engine is capable of belting out a peak power output of 166 PS and max. torque of 245 Nm. It can be had mated to either a 5-speed MT or a 6-speed AT. The oil burner, on the other hand, whips out 177 PS/450 Nm and can be had coupled to either a 6-speed MT or a 6-speed AT. The option of 4X4 layout is also limited to the diesel variants only.
