Unlike the Sienta Ezzy you saw yesterday, the Toyota Fortuner TRD Sportivo is available for Indonesians to buy. Debuting at GIIAS 2017, it’s a sporty flagship for the robust Hilux-based seven-seater SUV.

We’ve seen a similarly named Fortuner TRD Sportivo in Thailand, but this Indonesian-spec car differs from the one in the Land of Smiles, announced in March 2016. There’s no 20-inch wheels on the car you see here; and the bodykit is also different in design and more elaborate.

There’s a black-nosed look for this TRD Sportivo, and a red TRD badge sits on the gap between the grille and number plate. There’s also a bumper extension and larger fog lamp housings. On the side, there are 18-inch TRD two-tone rims and a red-black sticker along the lower end. A rear bumper extension and TRD Sportivo badge on the tailgate completes the look.

The TRD Sportivo is available with a 2.4L GD diesel engine or 2.7L Dual VVT-i petrol unit, both paired to a six-speed automatic gearbox with paddle shifters. Standard kit includes LED headlamps and DRLs, auto retracting wing mirrors with turn signals, dark brown leather seats, cruise control, keyless entry and push start, reverse camera, three-zone auto air con and a powered tailgate.

The Fortuner TRD Sportivo 2.4 VRZ 4×2 is priced at Rp 527,900,000 (RM169,634) while the Fortuner TRD Sportivo 2.7 SRS 4×2 costs Rp 553,300,000 (RM177,796).

We don’t have a TRD Sportivo version for the Fortuner in Malaysia yet, but if UMW Toyota Motor wishes to offer one, they can choose from Thai or Indonesian flavours.
