Small SUV Toyota C-HR concept gets great response


Toyota has released images of a stunning concept car that provides the first hint of a type of vehicle the company would like to bring to the small SUV market.

The innovative Toyota C-HR concept, which will have its world premiere next week at the Paris Motor Show, presents a bold new dynamic design language.

The striking blue C-HR concept introduces an expressive new “diamond architecture” styling theme to the segment and features a hybrid powertrain.

Below its compact, sensual cabin profile, the lower bodywork has been sculpted to represent the faceted surfaces of a highly-durable, precision-cut gemstone.

The front view debuts new styling themes that hint at a future design direction for Toyota vehicles – a further development of the company’s “under priority” and “keen look” design identity.

From the side, the highly-faceted lower body, aggressively angular rear shoulders and muscular wheel arches are contrasted with an exceptionally sleek cabin profile.

Highly-distinctive, aero-inspired, floating rear light clusters further enhance the broad shoulders of the concept car’s lower bodywork.

Toyota’s press conference will take place in Hall 4 of the Mondial de l’Automobile, Paris, at 8:00am (4pm AEST) on Thursday, October 2.
