2017 Toyota C-HR SUV interior is designed to be the best in the segment with high quality materials and an appealing styling
The official interior images of the production-ready Toyota C-HR have been unveiled with a number of exterior snaps giving a clear idea of the design language the new SUV is incorporated with. The Mazda CX-3 and Honda HR-V competitor appeared at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show in March and will initially be launched in Australia in the early parts of next year before entering ASEAN markets.
Europe will see the deliveries beginning towards the end of next year and will be slotted between Auris Touring Sports and the RAV4. Aiming at best-in-class cabin quality, the Toyota C-HR will have a 6.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system fitted at the centre stack and facing the driver. The centre console is slightly angled and the switches resemble the diamond motif shape of the exterior.
The diamond theme can also be spotted in the headliner, dials and the door trim pattern. The piano black finish and satin silver with blue illumination elevate the premium appeal. While the blue trim will be ditched in favour of grey for Australia, Toyota continues to put the emphasis on the material quality, shape and texture with not just form but equally functional.
The features list consists of automatic high beam, 18-inch alloy wheels, 576W nine-speaker JBL audio, Toyota Safety Sense pre-collision system with autonomous braking, adaptive cruise control and lane departure alert with steering control, etc.
In pursuit of seamless interior harmony, the sleek front seats has supportive lower portion with large supporting armrest. Based on the all-new modular TNGA (Toyota New Global Architecture) platform that underpins several of the current globally-sold models, the C-HR measures about 4,350 mm in length, 1,795 mm in width, 1,550 mm in height and has a wheelbase of 2,640 mm.
The bold design is said to represent the determination of the Japanese brand and is dimensionally longer, wider and lower than the Honda HR-V. For the Australian market, it will feature a 1.2-litre turbo petrol engine developing 116 PS and 185 Nm torque and has standard FWD with AWD option. The six-speed manual transmission will be standard and the CVT auto is the optional choice.
