With its hybrid powertrain, the new Toyota C-HR is a crossover in more ways than one. Expect a quiet drive and envious glances on the motorway and country lanes when you cruise in this fashionable vehicle.
A muscular stance and a sleek coupé roofline give it a stylish on-road presence – it doesn’t blend in to the background. Choose the dynamic trim level and the roofline will be floating for extra sportiness. All eyes will be on the angular sculpts that cover the C-HR’s body and give it youthful personality. Cast your eyes towards the front and you’ll notice its flattened nose with large headlights stretching almost the entire length of the bonnet. LED running lights mean it has sharp looks and the diamond grille adds elegant appeal.
Everything about the interior shouts cutting edge. The angular shapes continue inside with its sculpted fascia, curved central console and trapezium-shaped screen, all framed by ambient lighting. It’s not all about style – comfort is important as well, and the C-HR is a plush place in which to spend time. Bucket chairs make sure you feel cushioned and the high-riding position is supportive for your frame. One of its finest technologies is its optional JBL sound system. You’ll get nine 567-watt speakers that fill the car with the sound of whatever tune you play.
Powered by a combination of electricity and fuel, the 1.8-litre engine offers a beautifully smooth and quiet drive. With 122bhp pushing the C-HR forward plus an electric motor, it can pick up speed, fast. Thanks to its hybrid technology, it is fuel efficient so you can enjoy fewer trips to fill up the tank. There’s also the option of a 1.2-litre turbo petrol engine for those who prefer a more traditional driving experience.
As a crossover, it’s built for the city streets and it comes packed with technology to help prevent a collision while you’re driving. A Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection works quicker than you to apply the brakes when it notices a potential hazard nearby. Road Sign Assist means you always know the correct speed limit wherever you are. When you’re on the motorway, you’re just as supported by technology. Lane Departure Alert lets you know if you’re starting to veer and Adaptive Cruise Control stops you from getting too close to cars in front.
