The new Toyota Hilux TRD Sportivo, which broke cover last month, is making its way into showrooms, by the looks of it – reader Ng Han Wah came across trailer loads of the 2015 N70 Hilux in Sabah, with the dressed-up variant featuring rather prominently.

The Hilux TRD Sportivo – available in both 3.0 litre and 2.5 litre forms – adds on TRD front and rear bumpers, decals and TRD combination leather seats that feature red stitching on the black leather upholstery. It also gets bumper-mounted LED daytime running lights, and its alloy wheels are done in black.

Also sighted on the transporters were regular 2.5G and 3.0G variants, which now also come dressed with the bumper-mounted LED DRLs. The wheels of the G grade Hilux have also been given a minor cosmetic revision, now finished in dark grey. No mechanical changes, and so the 144 PS and 343 Nm 2KD-FTV VNT 2.5 litre and 163 PS and 343 Nm 1KD-FTV 3.0 litre common rail turbodiesels (and four-speed auto transmission) continue on as is.

As previously reported, the Hilux Double Cab TRD Sportivo 2.5G AT goes for RM104,686 (solid) and RM105,372 (metallic), while the Hilux Double Cab TRD Sportivo 3.0G AT is priced at RM112,967 (both solid and metallic).
