After launching its longstanding Innova and Fortuner in an all-new avatar, Toyota is now said to roll-out 2018 version of both the models this month, reports in media suggest. The new update will primarily include feature update as per leaks that went viral on the inter-web. One of the major changes to the Fortuner carline will be a new TRD Sportivo variant on the 4×2 AT diesel grade. Currently, Fortuner comes in six options including two petrol variants in manual & automatic versions with a 4×2 drivetrain and four diesel trims in MT & AT options with a 4×4 system on select grades. In addition, the model will receive new bits such as LED fog lamps across line-up and an engine start-stop system on diesel automatic variants. While Toyota India is set to add TRD Sportivo variant to its top-selling premium SUV, it is yet uncertain if it will be the one sold in Thailand or in Indonesian market.
