Alongside the launch of the new Toyota C-HR in Japan, in-house tuners Toyota Racing Development (TRD) and Modellista have also released a range of tuning and customisation options for the B-segment crossover. The list of parts available is comprehensive, with TRD’s also including various under-the-skin upgrades.

We’ll start with TRD – the brand has split its lineup into two separate collections, each with their own distinct look. The Aggressive Style is meant for the road and, as its name suggests, features an aggressive front spoiler (with or without LED daytime running lights), side skirts, rear diffuser and a small tailgate lip spoiler. There’s also a front grille garnish in either black or silver.

Meanwhile, the Extreme Style is designed to give a more rally-ready appearance, with a smaller front spoiler with silver trim, fender extensions, mud flaps and a black tailgate lip spoiler. To go with both looks, there are 18-inch TRD TF6 alloy wheels in either black or diamond-cut silver, and TRD has also recommended 17-inch wheels from other manufacturers such as the Works WIL-02D, Kyoho CDF 1 and Tom’s TH-01.

Inside, TRD offers sports seat covers with a shock-absorbing material called Exgel built into the back and side pads, offering high holding ability and low-friction urethane upholstery. Also available are ignition push buttons, a smart key case, indicator bulb sets and door handle protectors.

Mechanically, there’s a motion control beam (MCB) for the suspension that is claimed to absorb or attenuate slight vibrations and deformation that occur while in motion, increase body rigidity and improve responsiveness, with a decrease of roll speed and an increased ground contact feel of the four wheels to boot. There’s also a tyre pressure monitoring system with its own separate smart key-esque receiver.

Modellista’s suite of appearance upgrades are also split into two. The Elegant Ice Style pack offers a more, ahem, conservative look, gaining a less outlandish front spoiler, side skirts and rear valence, along with chrome accents on the door mirrors, along the doors and on the door handles.

On the other hand, the Boost Impulse Style goes all out with its own aero kit, along with a grille garnish, faux fender vents and a tailgate lip spoiler. Other items include LED lamps on the wing mirrors, antenna and rear number plate recess, along with a muffler cutter; buyers can also choose between 17- and 19-inch Modellista alloy wheels.

That’s not all – Modellista has also spent time on the interior of the car, offering blue monogram or titanium grain trim finishers, an LED cabin lighting set, LED smart puddle lights and luggage LED lighting on the tailgate. There’s also an LED illuminating strip around the base of the gearlever.

So, what do you think of the tuning options for the new Toyota C-HR?
