Real lower bumper reflector

I have noticed that a lot of newer built 2018 US model C-HR I am seeing with the red center reflector on the lower rear bumper now. Is this an option or now a standard item?

The reflector wasn't installed when I purchased my C-HR. Then I received a recall from toyota and they installed it. I think that is standard now for all C-HR.

In my case the reflector was installed when I got mine on Dec 4 2017.. Is also the XLE Premium model, don't know if that makes a difference

2018 C-HR "RedFox" XLE Premium.

I just looked up the part number for the recall/service campaign for the rear bumper garnish that they have on order for my vehicle. It turns out it is the red reflector. My service invoice has the part number of PT938-1C180-03 which matches this pic for the red reflector.

Here in Europe we don't have the C-HR logo on it.

Yeah sadly for the Canadian owners this accessory and the fog lights are optionals even on the premium model. I haven't received any recall for that and when I checked on the website with my vehicle identification number there was no recalls listed. I have sent an email to the Toyota customer service expressing my disappointement and I encourage all Canadian C-HR owners to do that.

So on the Canadian model there is just an empty space where that deflector would fit? I thought this was a mandatory safety feature. I suppose there are deflectors elsewhere on the rear end already. Glad to hear you've reached out for further information, be sure to let us know what Toyota has to say. I'm sure if more Canadian owners expressed the same concern we'd likely see these features as standard in the future.

Yeah just a empty space as you can see on the picture below. I've bought an aftermarket reflector but I will wait if they decide to do the recall. Sorry about the dirty bumper, we just had a snow storm during the weekend.

Reflectors on either side of the rear bumper facing the rear are good enough and I prefer them just for how much cleaner it looks.
