Toyota has revealed the updated version of the Fortuner TRD Sportivo edition for the Thailand market. Spruced with cosmetic upgrades, the model is now badged as the 2018 Toyota Fortuner TRD Sportivo 2 and comes with a host of changes including the new bumper and grille surrounds. The alloy wheel design is new as well, while the rear features mild changes to the tailgate on the SUV. The changes also translate in the cabin.

Inside, the sporty edition of the Fortuner Sportivo 2 gets an all-black cabin with red cross-stitching. The SUV also gets the TRD badged instrument console, while the seats and door trims are finished in black and red colours. The key fob also gets the black and red treatment on the Sportivo 2.
Much like India, the Toyota Fortuner TRD Sportivo 2 is powered by a 2.8-litre diesel engine that is available in manual and automatic transmissions with all-wheel drive as optional. The international-spec version though gets a tweaked suspension on the Sportivo for better handling.
Toyota India offers the Fortuner SUV in the TRD Sportivo trim and it is likely that the Sportivo 2 will go on sale here in the next few weeks. As Mahindra is all set to enter this segment with the Alturas G4, competing products including the Fortuner, Ford Endeavour, Skoda Kodiaq and more, would certainly like more visibility amidst potential buyers.
