The much awaited and talked about new compact crossover, Toyota C-HR has been recently caught by the spy cameras while the vehicle was busy testing on the roads of Europe. Interestingly, the new upcoming crossover-SUV’s test mule was caught sans any camouflage. The Japanese compact crossover was spotted testing the roads in cool Blue and Black dual-tone body paint.
The new Toyota C-HR is scheduled for its launch in the car markets of Europe by the end of this year. The all new Toyota C-HR flaunts a new design language which is bold, futuristic and sporty. There are no confirmations regarding the Toyota C-HR crossover’s arrival in the car market of India. However, as the compact crossover market is really hot in this country the Japanese car major would take a great thing if it decides to bring in its new upcoming C-HR to the Indian shores. Nevertheless, even if the Toyota C-HR does come our way, there are probably no chances of it coming before year 2018.
When it comes to styling, it must be said that Toyota has finally done a remarkable job on the upcoming C-HR as has been demanded from it. The C-HR flaunts a very sporty, stylish and futuristic styling which is radically different from the other Toyota offerings, which despite being immensely popular have been hounded for their conventional design approach. The new crossover gets a muscular front fascia which flaunts highly stylized, sharp LED headlights, prominent lines on the bonnet and beefy front bumper design along with a large central air dam, sharply styled air intakes and stylish diminutive LED fog lamps. The car’s side profile is also muscular with sharp character lines, which is further complemented by flared wheel arches, plastic underbody cladding, coup like slopping roofline and sporty alloy wheels.
The new upcoming Toyota C-HR’s rear design is in proportion with the rest of the vehicle and has been offers equally stylish and futuristic visual appeal with great styling elements. The car’s back end flaunts very attractive and sculpted tail gate, muscular bumper and sharply styled wraparound tail lights. There’s also a rear spoiler, large plastic bumper cladding and a faux skid plate to add to the overall sporty design. In short, it can safely be said that the Toyota designers certainly have gone the creative way this time around by shedding their conventional design attitude and produced a great looking machine on wheels by dropping all their inhibitions. The world’s top selling car maker seems to have finally created a car with its aimed ‘Waku Doki’ design language which is Japanese for heart racing styling.
The upcoming Toyota C-HR is not a sub-4 meter compact crossover, as it is 4360 mm long and sits on a wheelbase measuring 2640 mm. Toyota has revealed that the vehicle will offer 370 liters of cargo space without folding the rear seats, which is more than the Toyota Innova offers in India.
The C-HR’s interiors also boast of innovative design with an asymmetrical dashboard and neat layout. Features list include a large 8 inch touchscreen infotainment with the company’s Multi-Media navigation and improved connectivity.
