TopGear.com.ph Philippine Car News - PIMS 2012: Toyota shows off kitted-out 86s, Vios TRD Limited Edition

Toyota Motor Philippines may not have anything new to show at the 4th Philippine International Motor Show, but it does have on display two (or three, depending on how you look at it) of its most sought-after products: two 86 sports coupes and a Vios. These aren't your run-of-the-mill variants since all three cars sport add-ons to make them even more desirable.

For the 86, TMP has on display the Aero variant and a standard model that's been kitted out with Toyota Racing Development (TRD) accessories.

The 86 Aero features aggressive front, side and rear skirts topped by a high-mount rear spoiler, while red trim on the steering wheel, shift knob, door handles and bucket seat adds to the car's sportier flavor. As for the 86 TRD, it packs a carbon-fiber strut bar, oil cap, sports air filter, quad-tip muffler and sports suspension springs, while its exterior is clad with an aerodynamic wraparound bodykit and a ducktail spoiler.

The Vios TRD Limited Edition model, meanwhile, comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, rear spoiler, muffler cutter, and side skirts.

"Today, we have shown you a glimpse of Toyota's new direction," said TMP president Michinobu Sugata. "Ladies and gentlemen, this is only the beginning. We at Toyota are proud to bring you even more exciting vehicles in the future."
