2019 Toyota C-HR Exterior and Interior Design
With a sharp exterior design, the C-HR will most likely slot in under the Toyota RAV4. The production C-HR retains quite a bit of the previous concept’s funky lines. The Toyota C-HR was designed for the “yuccies,” the young urban creatives who inspired its design. Boring design is replaced with eye-catching modern styling. The bulbous wheel wells, low roofline and boomerang-like taillights are all recognizable. The rear door handles are also obscured, like on the similarly-sized Honda HR-V. Blacked-out rear pillars help create a “floating roof” look and the rear spoiler is supposed to appear to float as well.
