Toyota’s special edition TRD cars are essentially ‘hotter’ and more capable race or off-road versions of some of the stock cars they make.

In case you were unaware TRD stands for Toyota Racing Development, basically any humble model they get their hands on will be fettled and improved in every way from the stock machine.

For the 2017 Tokyo Auto Salon (13-15 January), six different TRD-tuned models will make their way to this year’s. My pick of the bunch is the C-HR in “Extreme” trim.

The “Extreme” version of the C-HR looks like it’s ready to take on the Dakar in its own way, featuring black wheel arches, TRD logo’ed mud flaps, a menacing looking front spoiler and a set of 16″ off-road style rims as standard. 

TRD have finally given us the C-HR of our dreams, now can I get hold of one in the UK in black please………
