Lots of new offerings are coming.
Anyone looking forward to visiting an international motor show will have to wait for better days to experience one, but to make sure that nobody misses out too much, the likes of the 2021 Tokyo Auto Salon will be going digital. This means that manufacturers and tuners can still release new offerings to the public in a spectacular if unusual way. Modellista and TRD are among those that will be using augmented reality to showcase new designs, but in the meantime, the two brands have given us a sneak peek of what we can expect next year.
We'll see Modellista's offerings for the Toyota Mirai, as well as the Yaris Cross and Harrier. We've already seen what Modellista can do with the Mirai, but we expect that the new year will bring some wheels and perhaps some additional enhancements for the sedan. As usual, the kits being offered by the brand for all these vehicles are predominantly aesthetic, with new front spoilers, side skirts, and rear fascias being presented. There will also be a motorsport-inspired Toyota 86 with a vented hood, front canards, and an overt rear wing. New wheels and a multicolor graphics package are also coming.
For those interested in more exciting machines, the GR Supra and GR Yaris will also be toyed with, as each car will be presented with an aggressive body kit and lightweight wheels. We expect to see lots of tuning upgrades for these two performance-focused machines, but even the minivan is getting attention. Modellista will be showing off an upgraded version of the Noah minivan, created by "gearholic [sic] members who appeared in the outdoor magazine GO OUT." It will be focused on keeping passengers inside the car, presumably with the aid of some entertaining techy toys. We'll have more details after the new models' unveiling on January 15, 2021.
