Toyota CHR Exterior
The CHR is very much unlike Toyota for most part being peppy and futuristic, with extensive character lines and details. The front get beautiful sweptback headlamps, small grille, a prominent logo and lot of cuts and creases surrounding the air dam.
On the side, bulging wheel arches, extensive contouring on doors, beautiful alloys and a slanting, blackened out roofline can be seen. The rear is just as impressive, fit with large spoiler, c-shaped taillamps and reminds us of the Volvo S40 CC.
Toyota CHR Interior and features
The inside is as detailed as the exterior and the car is packed with exciting design elements and features. An all black, futuristic dashboard can be seen, which comes with striking blue accents and leather trim.
Large 8 inch touch screen infotainment system with JBL speakers, leather seats, automatic air conditioning and illuminated cup holders enhance premiumness of the cabin.
The Toyota C-HR will be underpinned by Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) and it is the second car after 4th gen Prius to use the platform.
