Toyota C-HR 1.2 Turbo Luxury (Dual Tone) Review
Riding High

the C-HR reveals a high parts count around the rear door handle assembly, where the two tones of the car merge, featuring some very accurate piecing together

The maker of all things reliable seldom produces cars which are striking to the eye, but when they do, the Japanese manufacturer tends to swing almost like a polarising opposite of its expected self. Take for-instance the TA22 Toyota Celica from the early 70s, and the limited production 2000GT featured in The You Only Live Twice James Bond franchise. Cars which do not seem to fit into the Toyota mould, and just like how their C-HR is.

So What Toyota calls the Coupe-High Rider, is their answer to giving the world what it wants… A coupe, an SUV, a crossover and something compact and young…. Tall order… If I do say so myself!

Taking pen strokes a few steps over the top, our test car features a two-tone paint scheme, a distinctive headlamp design, with “Z” shaped daytime running lights. The up-down-and-up again curve on the side of the car, beginning at the front, and passing the head lamps, continuing over the tail lamp cluster and terminating at the boot lid, makes the car instantly recognisable.

On closer inspection, the C-HR reveals a high parts count around the rear door handle assembly, where the two tones of the car merge, featuring some very accurate piecing together. In helping to keep with its coupe-like stance, the sloping paint job covering the roof helps cheat the eye, making you believe that the car squats more aggressively at the rear than it does. Visual trickery aside, Toyota has kept the roof relatively straight for practical reasons, and it truly is a well-thought through car.

While the C-HR might not be to everyone’s taste, Toyota’s new crossover does strike a chord with its bold design. Though it does look rather tiny in pictures, the car is actually quite close in-size to Nissan’s Qashqai.
