Sources the front and rear ends from the latest Fortuner.

A trio of images have surfaced from Thailand, featuring the previous gen Toyota Fortuner (the model sold currently in India) fitted with an after market body kit that gives it the appearance of the latest Toyota Fortuner.

A quick glance may trick the majority into thinking that it’s the new Fortuner.

The unofficial body kit sources¬†the front and rear ends of the 2016 Toyota Fortuner, as well as integrates extended side sills and chrome-finished quad-exhaust pipes. A quick glance may trick the majority into thinking that it’s the new Fortuner, but the side profile gives away its real identity.

The interior has not been photographed, although it’s very likely to be left untouched. The upgrades made to the cabin of the Toyota Fortuner are too significant to integrate cleanly in its predecessor. The engine too is likely to be the older 2.5/3.0 KD diesel engines, rather than the new 2.4/2.8 GD diesel engine.
