It was only last week when Lexus Manila announced that the all-new UX crossover has officially arrived in the Philippines. Available in standard and F-Sport guise, the two options already give customers a choice on how they want their small luxury crossover to look (and perform). If the F-Sport option isn't sporty enough though, TRD Japan has recently released a new body kit together with performance bits for the UX which you can (probably) order soon.
Called the TRD F Sport Parts kit in Japan, it includes a new front lip, side skirts, 'aero fenders', a roof spoiler and a full rear diffuser, which further enhances the UX's aggressive design. The kit also includes TRD's new mirror covers for Lexus vehicles which are said to improve aerodynamics. Rounding up the exterior bits for the UX are the new sport muffler and the 18-inch forged aluminum wheels styled similarly to the RC F.
Aside from the stlyish bits you can see on the outside, TRD also offers some performance enhancing goodies for the UX. For starters, Toyota's in-house tuner offers a chassis braces which help reinforce the body as well as improve handling. Meanwhile, performance dampers can also be fitted at the front and rear which improves both ride and handling.
Unlike other TRD kits for other Lexus models though, the one for the UX is available on both the standard and F-Sport variant. It also comes in two different color ways – body color or 'black edition'.
As for the price, the complete body kit alone including the sports muffler will already set you back ¥626,000 (Php 289,000). Meanwhile, the 18-inch forged TRD wheels costs another ¥382,000 (Php 176,000). Add the chassis braces and performance dampers that each cost ¥100,000 (Php 46,000), and you have a very expensive kit. As the TRD kit is only available in Japan, you will have to factor in the cost of shipping as well.
