Photos: Take a Look at the Upcoming 2017 Toyota C-HR’s Interior
When Toyota first revealed the upcoming 2017 C-HR at the Geneva Motor Show in March, it was displayed with blacked out windows that hid all interior details. We were a bit bummed out—the car looked outrageously funky on the outside and we were hoping to get a peak at what it had inside.
We’ve finally gotten what we wanted, as the C-HR’s interior was just recently unveiled by the automaker, and we must say that even after our somewhat high expectations, we are not disappointed.
The dashboard is asymmetrical and uncluttered, featuring a large 8-inch touchscreen taking up most of the space in the middle and a redesigned and improved infotainment system to go along with it. It’s not nearly as crazy as the exterior design, but perhaps that’s not a bad thing.
Although the C-HR’s primary competitors are the Honda HR-V, Mazda CX-3, and Nissan Juke, Toyota stated that its customers would likely also have premium brands on their shopping list, and that they would therefore expect higher levels of quality.
As a result, the automaker combined a “careful choice of finishes” such as leather-like material for all background surfaces, smooth Nappa grain for all touch-surfaces, and technical grain for all functional elements, like the switchgear. Decorative elements are finished with high-quality piano black and satin silver trim.
The C-HR will be available with three interior colors: dark grey, black and blue, and black and brown. Available features will include a smart entry system, heated seats, bespoke upholstery with part-leather seats, and privacy glass.
So far, we don’t know what it’ll have under the hood, but we’re sure to find out closer to the 2017 Toyota C-HR’s launch date next spring.
