Let's face it; the Prius C's looks are about as interesting as a corn on the cob. Nevertheless, Toyota believes it can add some character to its sub-compact hybrid with a new concept that was introduced today at the Tokyo Auto Salon.
The G Sports version of the Aqua, which is what Toyota calls the Prius C in its home market of Japan, retains the standard model's full hybrid powertrain adding numerous styling bits and a re-tuned suspension into the mix.
On the outside, there's a full body kit with a somewhat gaudy-looking, razor grille that houses LED strips on the lower part, side skirts, a new rear bumper with a diffuser, faux fender vents and 17-inch black alloy wheels with red accents shrouded in 195/45 Bridgestone Potenza rubber.
Toyota also made changes to the interior with the addition of a set of sport seats up front dressed in leather and Alcantara, new sports steering wheel, gear lever and pedals, plus a higher-end audio system.
A sports suspension and a body reinforcement brace round out the upgrades.
