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.
