VIDEO: Toyota Prius c’s G’s Upgrade Gets The Girl

Cars often get personified by filmmakers, with some comical results after, and Toyota looks to be the latest carmaker to take advantage of the point. Here’s a rather comical on-going campaign in Japan, for the Toyota Aqua’s G’s upgrade package.

The Toyota Aqua, as it is known in Japan, is also known as the Toyota Prius c in Malaysia: the more compact model of the Prius family. This is also the facelifted model, which can only be had in Malaysia via special order – UMW Toyota maintained the Prius c’s availability up to the pre-facelift model only.

Back to the video we have here, and Toyota is promoting its ‘G’s’ upgrade package for the Prius Aqua in Japan. Effectively, the Aqua/ Prius c with the G’s sports package gets an upgrade to its exterior body kit, a sports suspension and additional chassis bracing to improve rigidity.

No changes to the engine are made, leaving the 1.5-litre petrol engine and electric hybrid motor’s power stock out of the box.

On the outside, the G’s upgrade brings out a unique front bumper, side skirts, decorative black extensions to the headlamps, and a unique set of LED daytime running lights. The rear is also improved with a G’s bumper, taillights, side fender garnish, and also a choice of two 17-inch alloy wheels wrapped in Bridgestone POTENZA RE050A rubbers.

Inside, the G’s Prius c is updated with several cosmetic upgrades: Alcantara upholstery, leather-wrapped gear lever with a Crystal Red inlay, a G’s engine on/ off switch, sporty aluminium pedals and much more.

But is it enough to get the girl? Watch this hilarious video and find out!

UPDATE: Is that Kamui Kobayashi (ex Formula 1 driver) at the white board with the Fuji circuit on it? This video keeps getting better.

Chris finds equal pleasures in reviewing fast cars as much as the everyday workhorses. He maintains a passion for European makes, Formula 1, playing the electric guitar and spending endless hours on the PlayStation; first-person shooters and the Gran Turismo franchise remain favourites. He also finds it strange to have written this in the third person.
