Toyota Fortuner is one of the most popular SUV in its segment. It used to rival with Ford Endeavour but, with Ford exiting Indian market, Toyota Fortuner is now the leader in this segment. Like Innova or Innova Crysta, Toyota Fortuner is also known for its reliability and low cost of maintenance. Toyota Fortuner is a popular SUV among off-road communities and we have seen several Toyota Fortuners with off-road specific modifications. There are some who make modification to make their SUV look more bulky than it already is. Here we have one such modified Toyota Fortuner and it is probably India’s craziest looking modified Fortuner.
The modification work on this Toyota Fortuner has been done by Executive Modcar Trendz (EMT). They took a previous generation Toyota Fortuner and completely transformed it into a wild looking machine. Starting with the front, the fascia has been completely modified. It won’t be wrong to say that the car is almost unrecognisable in this form. It looks a lot more aggressive. The headlamps are now twin projector LED units and there is a boomerang shaped LED DRL placed next to it.

Toyota badge has been completely removed from the car and the grille is also a custom made unit. The grille is finished in black and there is a red coloured panel on the top. The front bumper has been completely redesigned and it looks a lot more muscular than the stock version. A blindspot mirror is installed in the bonnet.
Coming to the side profile, there are thick black claddings and that give the SUV a wide look. To match with the black and white theme of the car, the door beading, roof rails and claddings are all finished in black. One of the noticeable change here are the dual tone aftermarket alloy wheels. The C pillar gets a black plastic cover which adds to the muscular look of the car.
The rear also gets some modifications but, it is not as much as the front. The car gets completely blacked out tail lamps. It looks like an aftermarket unit. There is a black strip running between the lights as well. The bumper has seen some changed. It is probably a custom made unit. The bumper gets chrome tip faux exhausts and there are red accents as well.
Overall, the SUV looks different on the outside and is definitely a head turner. The interiors on this Toyota Fortuner has also received some upgrades. The car gets leather upholstery with diamond pattern stitching on it. This treatment gives the cabin an upmarket feel. The center console and the plastic panels on the door and the lower part of the dashboard are all finished in brown.
