Toyota recently revealed a new concept car called the C-HR and it’s meant to preview a new compact crossover that will eventually slot in below the Rav4.
The bold looks, compact proportions and overall dynamic stance of the CH-R will undoubtedly resonate with the ever growing small SUV customer base, and therefore the model is strongly being considered for local introduction.
The innovative second C-HR Concept has been designed around a new platform, developed under the TNGA (Toyota New Global Architecture) programme.
TNGA manifests itself in the new C-HR Concept through a highly rigid body and a low centre of gravity that minimise body movement and vehicle roll during cornering.
This allows for suspension settings that deliver great ride comfort without compromising on driving dynamics, equipping the C-HR Concept with responsive handling, agility and straight-line stability.
An exceptionally sleek cabin contrasts with aggressively angular rear shoulders and muscular wheel arches that feature unique 21-inch wheels with “diamond-cut” machined-surface spokes.
Piano black paint conveys the impression of a “floating” roof that is detailed with patterned openings to create an animated play of light within the C-HR Concept’s cabin space.
At the rear, the glasshouse tapers dramatically to a pronounced diffuser, integrated fog lamps and distinctive floating rear lamp clusters that incorporate diamond-pattern lens detailing.
