Toyota has wasted no time in releasing its aftermarket proposals for the Prius C/Aqua hybrid as the car goes on sale in Japan.
In Japan it bears the name Aqua; beyond these far eastern shores it is known simply as the Prius C. Sitting at the base of the Prius family, the entry-level model has hit the home market showrooms and to coincide with this historic event, Toyota's TRD racing and performance division has announced their intentions for the sub-compact hatchback. Their exterior package includes a new front apron with additional air vents & optional LED daytime running lights, a roof spoiler, matching side skirts and a rear apron with matte black diffuser.
Performance mods are limited to a sports exhaust system with a pair of chrome tailpipes, larger alloys and a suspension package with new springs and shocks, lowering the car's ride height. A new TRD push-button start is the only interior change, although more styling accessories and performance enhancements are expected in the near future. The Prius C is expected to make its North American debut next month at the Detroit Auto Show.
