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.
