Toyota India has launched the sportier looking Fortuner TRD limited edition from Rs 34.98 lakh (ex-showroom). Based on the diesel-automatic variant, the Fortuner TRD can be had in either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive variants.
Its bookings are open at official Toyota showrooms across the country.
An additional Rs 2.45 lakh is quite a hefty premium you need to pay for the Fortuner TRD over the standard model.
For starters, the cosmetic updates are quite similar to the Fortuner TRD celebratory limited edition which was launched back in September 2019. There is black garnish and a ‘TRD’ logo in the front grille while the front and rear bumper look sportier than the standard model.
You also get 18-inch blacked-out alloy wheels as well as a blacked-out roof. 'TRD' badging at the rear denotes that you’re driving the special variant.
Inside, the Fortuner TRD’s dashboard and upholstery utilises a sportier red and black theme. That’s about it. And while it retains all the features from the standard Fortuner, the TRD benefits from a 360-degree parking camera, illuminated scuff plates and auto-folding ORVMs.
Toyota also offers the Fortuner TRD with optional accessories under the ‘special technology’ package. This includes kit such as head-up display, a tyre pressure monitor, digital video recorder (DVR), wireless smartphone charger for rear passenger, air ionizer and a welcome door lamp.
