TOYOTA PRIUS c TRD SPORTIVO at RM103,990.00
Toyota launches a sportier variant of the PRIUS c hybrid, the PRIUS c TRD Sportivo. TRD develops high-quality accessories for Toyota models. All TRD accessories meet Toyota’s quality and safety standards as well. Designed and manufactured to the same high standards as Toyota vehicles, the TRD Sportivo Aerokit consists of an exclusive front bumper spoiler with distinctive Daytime Running Lights integrated into each front corner. The PRIUS c TRD Sportivo also has side skirts under the door sills. These extensions reduce the height of the car visually, giving it a more low-slung and sporty look. The rear bumper spoiler and the rear combination lamp garnish make the PRIUS c TRD Sportivo sportier at the rear. Finally, a TRD Sportivo emblem is added on the rear door to differentiate it from the PRIUS c.
Inside the PRIUS c TRD Sportivo there are TRD Sportivo floor mats with blue stitching, following the Toyota hybrid colour theme are provided. All TRD Sportivo accessories are not available for purchase separately. The mechanical specifications of the PRIUS c TRD Sportivo and PRIUS c are the same. For all variants of the PRIUS c, UMW Toyota Motor now provides an upgraded audio system which includes a refreshed 2-DIN head unit fascia, and Bluetooth® connectivity. This increases the connectivity options for drivers which includes AUX-Jack and USB ports.
Also offered as standard from January 2013 for all variants of the PRIUS c, is a bag hook which is fitted under the passenger headrest. Unlike other bag hooks, this Toyota accessory (also available in many other Toyota models) has spring-loaded hooks which can be retracted when not needed. In addition to the bag hook, a luggage tray for the rear trunk space is also provided. The tray is made of durable plastic material and besides protecting the rear trunk carpet, it is also waterproof so wet items can be stored on it and it can be easily cleaned.
The PRIUS c TRD Sportivo variant is only available in four colour choices: Lime White Pearl CS, Black Mica, Silver Metallic, and Super Red V. Also available is the new and improved DVD-AVN (Audio-Visual Navigation) system and Reverse Camera. This new 2-DIN head unit DVD player now comes with 7″ touch screen and is equipped with Tuner, MP3, Aux-Jack, USB, SD Card Slot, Bluetooth®, Smartphone Link, Voice Control, Navigation System and Reverse Camera.
