If you’re looking for more style in your next Toyota, then you’re in luck. It seems that the Toyota C-HR 2021 and Toyota Avalon will adopt the dark side, courtesy of the finishing group Nightshade Special Edition. Essentially a set of blackened trim, the news of a special Nightshade edition for the smallest crossover and the largest sedan from Toyota in North America came from a fleet newsletter that caught the attention of CarsDirect. It also means that Toyota is expected to launch 10 of these Nightshade Edition models before the end of the year.
There are no complete details on what the Nightshade edition of these two Toyotas will bring, nor on the level of finish from which they start, but we can expect the Nightshade CH-R and Ava have similar accoutrements to the same previously announced editions of Tacoma, Tundra and Sequoia. The Corolla also has a Nightshade edition, with blackened exterior badges, 18-inch wheels, bottom fairings, door handles and exterior mirror covers, which joined the lineup for 2020. Last year also saw the introduction of the Camry and the Highlander in the same trim. So, as you can see, Toyota loves its special editions.

The fleet bulletin also revealed that the Avalon XSE will be discontinued for 2021, with the Avalon Nightshade edition taking its place. Avalon buyers will soon have the choice between a more aggressive TRD option and a more understated but still elegant appearance.
Will the Nightshade Edition be something you have been looking forward to? It certainly beats some of Toyota’s other “special editions,” and if the premium is right, it might be a good option for those looking for a little more in the looks department. Or could it be just another bunch of options that will inflate the lists of things that can be had with your next Toyota?
