Upgrades are performance-improving customisation parts featured in the career mode of Need for Speed: High Stakes. Unlike the PlayStation release, the player can't purchase each upgrade individually.

Players can upgrade their vehicle with one of three upgrade packages. Each package improves upon another with additional performance improvements:

  • Upgrade 1 - Improves handling by optimising the suspension
  • Upgrade 2 - Improves handling and top speed by optimising aerodynamics
  • Upgrade 3 - Improves top speed and braking by optimising engine performance and brakes
