With the GT trim, you’ll get a rear spoiler and LED fog lights to enhance the aesthetic. TRD Special Editions come with modified bumpers, a spoiler, and dual exhaust.

With its standard cloth and simulation suede leather (known as Granlux) materials and deep, bucket contouring, this coupe’s seats have the look and feel of a real, live race car. The steering wheel comes standard with leather wrapping, its smaller diameter perfect for sharp handling. Silver contrast stitching on the base model’s black interior provides a subtle touch of class.
