How does one make a stylish luxury crossover look even more appealing? For Japanese tuner Modellista, it's all about slapping on a bodykit to make it stand out from the rest.
One month after TRD released its own upgrades for the UX (dubbed TRD F Sport Parts), Modellista decided to join the fray by introducing their own line of aesthetic upgrades for the baby crossover. However, instead of just making a bodykit for just one variant, Modellista decided it would be better to make one for the F Sport and standard variant as well.
Starting with the F Sport, the new styling kit gives the crossover an even sportier appearance. The front fascia now has a chin spoiler, along with a hood garnish which gives the UX a meaner look. In addition, it also gets a bit more muscle courtesy of the new side skirts. Finally, the UX F Sport gets a snazzier rear bumper and a shiny new chrome garnish on its roof-mounted spoiler.
Over to the regular UX, the upgrades were a bit more subtle, but they do add some zest to the crossover nonetheless. Instead of having an outlandish bodykit, the standard UX gets garnishes and trimmings painted in black. These can be seen on the headlights, doors and taillights. However, customers can have these extra add-ons painted in the same color as the body itself should they want to.
Modellista is set to premiere both the regular and F Sport UX styling upgrades at the 2019 Tokyo Auto Salon next week.
