TRD Offers Neat Accessory Packages For 2016 Toyota Crown

So here are some cool things that you can’t probably buy.

The Japanese domestic car market is swarming with offerings that no one outside the land of the rising sun can get their hands on (except maybe for gray importers). There are Kei cars, intriguing official tuning packages, and vehicles that differ greatly from the ones built for export.

But Toyota’s recently updated premium sedan, the Crown, is not the kind of car dedicated for other markets, with an export variant. In fact, it’s the perfect example of an exclusive JDM automobile that won’t make it anywhere else. And so are its official Toyota Racing Development accessories.

As if it wasn’t JDM enough, the Japanese car manufacturer offers a variety of visual and technical enhancements to go along with it, transforming the elegant Crown into an “athlete”, a driving enthusiast’s four-door alternative.

Consisting of a revised aerodynamic package (including redesigned front and rear aprons, a subtle spoiler and a choice of wheels), a suspension upgrade, as well as rigidity strengthening parts, the bits and pieces go extremely well with the Crown’s new 2.0-litre direct injection turbo engine, which develops 235PS (232hp) and 350Nm (258lb-ft) of torque thanks to a twin-scroll turbocharger.

The package is available for all the Crown’s variants, the Athlete, the Royal and the Majesta.
