Let us introduce the revolutionary Toyota C-HR, a new breed of car. Sat under the class of a small SUV the C-HR is one of a kind, it’s exterior design and interior features make for a car like no other. So, let us give you the lowdown on the Toyota C-HR, available to test drive and purchase at the Howards Toyota dealerships.

Exterior Design & Features

Let us first look at the exterior styling of this SUV. Toyota tell us that this car is ‘inspired by the multifaceted precision of a diamond’. With body styling that we have not seen before, the Toyota explores body line and angles that, whilst rare, represent the sharpness and precision of a diamond edge. The design also displays the characteristics attributed to diamonds, it is rare and breathtaking. 

This SUV has presence, its stance is low and squat and offers a wide arched muscular look. Although you may feel the C-HR has a low posture for an SUV, the elevated driving position still offers you that feeling of being ‘up high’, giving you a better position and perspective while driving. An eye-catching uniquely contoured bonnet spreads itself over the wide wheel arches, really drawing your gaze to the front of the car. Uniquely angled LED headlights and the stunning diamond-grille finish the smooth, dynamic and edgy design of the C-HR.

When looking at this crossover you’ll notice a floating roof sitting on the darkened C pillars, as well as concealed rear door handles moulded into the upper rear door quarters. This feature ensures that your eyes are uninterrupted as you follow the angular bodyline around to the rear.

Your first impression of the rear is its boomerang shaped rear lights, which house Toyota’s signature LED light-guides. These rear light clusters are integrated alongside the sharp angular tailgate, or boot as we like to call it in the UK. The rear bumper even offers slightly aggressive styling with its precision lines and sharp tailoring.

Now let’s talk size, C-HR dimensions:

  • Wheelbase: 2,640 mm (103.9 in)
  • Width: 1,795 mm (70.7 in)
  • Length: 4,360 mm (171.7 in)
  • Height: 1,565 mm (61.6 in)

The dash is built with driver comfort in mind, as all features are within an arm's length away. You're presented with a colour touchscreen that’s moulded into the dashboard, housing everything you need for navigation, audio, driving aids etc.

In the front you’ll find contoured sports seats, that hold you comfortably in place whilst offering great support and security. A high set centre console offers a comfortably positioned stout gear stick, clad in chrome and leather.

    We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
