The wait for the unveiling of the interior for the Toyota C-HR, – or Coupé High-Rider, has finally come to an end.
The Toyota C-HR was designed to stand out both within the Toyota line-up and in its segment, the all-new C-HR represents Akio Toyoda’s determination to allow greater stylistic freedom and promote engineering creativity in order to achieve eye-catching designs and enhanced driving pleasure.
The Toyota C-HR’s unique character demonstrates the flexibility that the TNGA (Toyota New Global Architecture) gives to vehicle developers in the three key areas of design, powertrain and dynamics, enabling them to deliver a new and fresh take on the increasingly commoditized crossover segment.
The all-new Toyota C-HR introduces a distinctive styling that brings newfound dynamism and sensuality to the crossover market.
Under the concept of “Sensual Speed-Cross”, and featuring a diamond architectural theme with wheel arches projecting prominently at all four corners to emphasise the new crossover’s strength and rigidity, the C-HR modulated structure combines a powerful lower body and raised ground clearance with the slim and sleek cabin profile of a coupe.
Viewed from any angle, the C-HR’s combination of facetted gemstone-like shapes with fluid surfaces and elegantly integrated detailing create a delicate balance of precision and sensuality. The slender upper grille flows from the Toyota badge into the sleek, aggressive wing extremities of the headlamp clusters and wraps fully around the front corners of the vehicle. The movement of the blacked out rocker panel towards the front and rear wheels, along with the shoulder axis that runs through to the front and rear, emphasise the fast-looking, ‘lift-up’ feel of the thin body.
The C-HR’s coupe-like styling is further enhanced by disguised rear door handles integrated within the C pillar and, essential to the representation of speed within the design, the powerful projection of the sweeping roofline into a large, highly aerodynamic, skeletal frame rear spoiler.
To the rear, the strongly tapered cabin integrates a top-hinged tailgate giving access to the loadspace. This contrasts with the pronounced flaring of the wheel arches, which give the new crossover a wide and extremely powerful stance. Standing proud of the tapering body work, prominent rear light clusters may also be equipped with LED lamp technology to give the rear view of the C-HR an equally expressive visual signature.
The sophisticated interior design comes with outstanding sensory quality. A new ‘Sensual Tech’ design concept combining high-tech functionality with a sensual and fashionable style. The driver oriented area incorporates innovative details and intuitive, approachable high technology. All operating switchgear, and an 8″ display audio touch-screen featuring a redesigned and improved HMI (Human Machine Interface) with Toyota’s Multi-Media ’16 platform and enhanced connected services are
slightly oriented towards the driver. The outstanding new interior design will be available in a choice of three colour schemes: Dark Grey, Black/Blue and Black/Brown.
The Toyota C-HR comes with equipment levels to suit the most demanding customers and is equipped with an engine-range that is designed to deliver exactly the fluent, engaging driving behaviour.
Orders for the Toyota C-HR can be placed as of September 2016 (prices also announced in September) whilst the car is expected to be in showrooms as of November 2016.
