Last year, at the Geneva Motor Show in March, Toyota unveiled the radical looking C-HR compact SUV. The biggest talking point of the Toyota CHR is its radical styling that is nearly identical to the concept of the same name. Toyota’s compact SUV is already on sale in the United Kingdom. Toyota is yet to shed any light on the India launch of the C-HR. If it does make to India, it will retail for around Rs. 15 lakh. Here’s more on the Toyota C HR India details.

Toyota C HR Small SUV – Design
The compact SUV from Toyota features radical styling. Its exterior is dominated by sharp cuts and creases, bulging wheel arches and unconventional lines. The overall design looks more Lexus than Toyota, to be honest. The sloping roofline and the rather small rear window will definitely make for a slightly claustrophobic rear. The design of the Toyota C-HR small SUV is unlike anything we have seen until now.
The radical design theme continues on inside as well. It gets a large floating touchscreen mounted above the AC vents. The entire centre console is angled towards the driver. Hybrid variant of the C-HR features blue highlights in the cabin as can be seen in the image here.
