The Fortuner TRD Sportivo has joined the Etios TRD Sportivo and Corolla Altis Limited Edition in Toyota Kirloskar’s festive season special edition lineup. We have already updated you about the Etios Sportivo in one of our earlier posts, just that Toyota has made an official announcement about the new variants. Here’s some lowdown on the festive season special editions, especially the Fortuner.
Fortuner TRD Sportivo Limited Edition
Apparently the Fortuner TRD Sportivo has been aerodynamically designed by TRD. To that, we say, really? It’s like tweaking the LUNA TFR for MotoGP – there’s never going to be any consequence to the exercise. You really want to make the Fortuner look special, Toyota? Make it look burlier, heftier, brawnier – that’s what people want that behemoth for. For crying out loud, we loved the intimidating fascia of the earlier version – a snarling devil, which would move mountains out of its way, if they were on the road, and had an RVM.
The tweaks, however, do add some sportiness to the vehicle, for those who want it in a big, burly SUV. The additions on the new Fortuner TRD Sportivo include:
• A re-designed front bumper spoiler
• New design rear roof spoiler
• A newTRD Sportivo Emblem
• New rear bumper spoiler.
Only 600 units of the Limited Edition vehicle will be sold till the month of Dec 2012. The vehicle would be available only in 4×4 manual and automatic variants.
