TRD parts unavailable officially in India.

The Toyota Fortuner isn't offered with TRD parts in India, but an image from HH Customs India shows an Indian-spec Toyota Fortuner fitted with a TRD radiator grille. The customised Fortuner has black ORVMs and what looks like a black roof. The custom parts were sourced from private importers or ordered off the internet.

The Indian-spec Toyota Fortuner's TRD grille is the same as the one on the Middle East spec Toyota Fortuner TRD.

The Toyota Fortuner's TRD grille is not part of the kit on the Toyota Fortuner TRD Sportivo sold in Thailand. Instead, it looks like the one endowed to the Toyota Fortuner TRD showcased at the 2016 Oman Motor Show. Besides the different look grille, this model had black plastic fog lamp surrounds, "TRD" underbody engine cover in red colour, matte black TRD alloy wheels, TRD side steps and a sportier rear bumper.

The Thai-spec Toyota Fortuner TRD Sportivo is equipped with special features like dark chrome front grille, dark chrome trunk cover trim, TRD Sportivo bumpers, 20-inch TRD alloy wheels in black, TRD Sportivo emblem on the trunk lid, black top film and trunk light, LED scuff plate and exhaust pipe with TRD emblem. On the inside, the TRD Sportivo variant has TRD Sportivo design Optitron meter, black and red seats with red stitching, TRD emblem on the door panels and TRD floor carpet among styling other changes.

TKM introduced the TRD Sportivo variant of the previous generation Toyota Fortuner in India as a limited edition model in 2013. With the Toyota Innova Crysta having received a sporty treatment in the Touring Sport, it seems the TRD Sportivo variant of the second-gen Toyota Fortuner is a certainty during some point of the SUV's lifecycle.
