Staying sharp from concept car to production, the new Toyota C-HR is a truly cutting-edge new model, a revolutionary coupé that reinvents crossovers. A new automotive breed has emerged: the Coupé High-Rider.
Toyota boss, Akio Toyoda, always pushes for greater stylistic freedom and engineering creativity to produce eye-catching designs and superior driving pleasure – and the C-HR fits the bill, with bold styling, a premium interior and innovative powertrains.
Blending dynamism, refinement and comfort, drive at one with the road in the C-HR and live life to the full – this Toyota creation’s spirited drive keeps modern lives moving. At home in the city and completely comfortable further afield, the C-HR is ready to work hard and play hard.
Built on the Toyota New Global Architecture Platform (TNGA), the brand has been able to create a bold, striking, dynamic design in the radical C-HR with a striking profile. Its dramatic aerodynamic styling and revolutionary, expressive diamond architecture hint at a future design direction for Toyota.
The C-HR is sleek and muscular, with a coupé profile and raised cabin position, designed for active urban lifestyles. It boasts strong character lines, a ‘floating roof’, broad, planted stance, contoured bonnet, flared wheel arches, striking LED headlamps, an elegant grille, distinctive boomerang-shaped rear lights and a sharp tailgate.
The C-HR’s dramatic look continues into the cabin, which features high-quality materials and a superior setting to excite the senses.
Toyota’s state-of-the-art Safety Sense system will come as part and parcel of the C-HR’s offering, which boasts various active safety systems to either prevent incidents from occurring completely or lessen the severity of an impact.
Pre-Collision System detects vehicles on the road ahead; Lane Departure Alert warns the driver if the vehicle is detected to be deviating from its lane; Automatic High Beam detects the lights of oncoming vehicles, dimming the main beam when necessary; Road Sign Assist displays useful information on the TFT cockpit display; Adaptive Cruise Control keeps the C-HR at a minimum pre-set distance from the vehicle ahead; Pedestrian Detection alerts the driver when the possibility of a collision with a pedestrian is detected.
The C-HR will mark the introduction of full hybrid powertrain to the crossover segment, delivering 122 DIN hp and offering sharper performance, as well as increased efficiency and a more lightweight design than the previous Toyota hybrid system – it also boasts CO2 emissions below 90g/km.
A second option of a 1.2-litre turbo petrol engine will also be available, paired with a six-speed manual gearbox or Continuously Variable Automatic Transmission system.
Innovative, state-of-the-art lamp clusters provide the C-HR with its own unique visual signature, incorporating full LED lighting with light guides and sequential indicator signals.
Perfectly linear steering, combined with the optimum limitation of rolling motion, offers remarkable driving precision, plus added comfort and driving enjoyment through remarkable composure.
