There are three trim grades available, with the entry-level Active featuring 17-inch alloys, air conditioning, Bluetooth, plus electric windows front and rear as standard.

The Icon trim adds a powered tailgate, power-folding mirrors, rain-sensing wipers, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, part-leather instrument panel trim, dual-zone automatic air conditioning and the Toyota Touch multimedia touchscreen with a DAB digital tuner, rear-view camera and Bluetooth.
