Gone are the days when you would expect your newly designed sedan or SUV to grab a few eyeballs as you cruise. Design and concepts of generic cars are in for a breakthrough.

The basic framework and sketches need to be deleted off the drawing boards. And yes! It’s the new 2016 Toyota C-HR concept that needs to be unveiled.

2016 Toyota C-HR Review

With this breed of subcompact crossover SUV’s creeping in, it was time for Toyota to show some love to its fans. The 2014 Paris Motor show was the place where the concept and idea was revealed. The design and the brand new concept of the C-HR established a lot about new variety of cars that’s evolving in the market.

The 2016 Toyota C-HR brings an impressive muscular design integrated with looks that rather resemble a precision cut gem stone from the back. The hind corners of the car seemed to be completely removed as the slim upper grille merges around its front corners. The spoiler tipped roofline and the aggressively angular rear shoulders together create an edgy and high-tech 3D impression.

The interior design of this crossover SUV has a blend of glossy and matte effect. Having a clean dashboard with a center display, it aptly suits the neat and trimmed preference of the active urban commuter. Apart from these, the needed features like covered steering wheel, traction control, power windows, mirrors and traction system makes the C-HR define its ‘utility’ part. Lane departure, parking sensors and speakers on the dashboard corners rollup to a better interior experience.
