Toyota C-HR sizzles with Modellista body kit

Article by Christian A., on December 19, 2016

Shortly after launching the latest Toyota crossover, the brand’s in house tuners have also come out with a range of custom upgrades. One of them is Modellista, Toyota’s design division, which offers new body kits for the new C-HR. The distinctively shaped body comes with its “Elegant Ice Style” and “Boost Impulse Style” packages.

All things considered, Modellista has kept the new Toyota C-HR’s drivetrain as with its usual design protocol. In that case, the C-HR is packed with the same 85kW over 185 Nm, 1.2-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine.

In line with this, Toyota TRD has also released its own tuning package. The TRD offers two distinct styling kits, which includes the “Extreme Style” and “Aggressive Style” design upgrades. The new C-HR styling kits are currently available in Japan.

Since both TRD and Modellista have equally amazing designs, we couldn’t wait to see which one among these new tuning kits would sell out in the US. Up till now, the US market eagerly awaits the new CH-R’s arrival in spring.

Toyota C-HR Boost Impulse Modellista Kit

The “Boost” kit includes side skirts, LED strips and a new front splitter with metallic trims on each side. There’s also a rear spoiler that runs between its tail lamps and a diffuser that has this shiny metallic accents. Each part can be availed separately but the set of newly painted side skirts, rear fascia and front splitter would cost around $1,600 USD or 183,000 Yen.

The same package can be availed for as low as $1,400 USD or 162,000 Yen without paint. On the other hand, Modellista offers a more sophisticated design upgrade complete with front splitter, side skirts and rear bumper for as low as $1,030 USD or 118,000 Yen (with no paint). If you prefer the “Elegant Ice style” body kit with paint job, you can have it for $1,200 USD or 139,320 Yen.

Toyota C-HR Boost Elegant Ice Style Kit

The “Elegant” styling kit consists mostly of metallic pieces including those on the mirror casing. The rear fascia meanwhile has air vents on each side. Just like what is offered with the “Boost” styling kit, every piece is also sold separately. Other than the set of 19-inch 5-spoke wheels and rectangular tailpipes, Modellista’s CH-R bodykits may come with colourful add-ons.

This includes LED lights for the license plate as well as around the shark-fin antenna and mirror casings. Special LEDs can also be added along the compact crossover’s luggage compartment, footwell, gear lever and on the ceiling. There is also an optional 17-inch alloy wheels as an alternative to the 19-inch set.
