The Downtown accessories are claimed to add some "additional flair" by way of a range of exterior and interior enhancements. There are new decals offered in Citrus (lime green), Orange or Flash Pink.

The decal kits are broken down into smaller packs and individual items, though it is expected buyers could get the lot for a discounted fee. The recommended retail price for the decals on the upper section that covers the roof bars and upper edges of the rear doors is $302.27, while the side mirror caps add $328.75, the lower decal kit is $516.42 and the centre caps for the alloy wheels cost $70.51.

The interior also sees a range of accessory items for those who want to add a little more flair in the cabin, with the decal kit (covering air vents, front door mouldings, steering wheel, dash visors, centre console and floor mats) costing $297.51, and the rearview mirror cover adding $143.55
