The Japanese automaker has taken the wraps off the first official images with the interior of the a direct competitor in terms of quirkiness to the Nissan Juke.
Scheduled to arrive at European dealerships starting early 2017, the interesting exterior styling has been doubled by an equally new Sensual Tech design which combines “high-tech functionality with a sensual and fashionable style.” Toyota was actually unwilling to share too many details regarding the cabin, but we can see for ourselves there’s a bespoke shape for the dashboard, complete with satin silver trim, as well as piano black accents. A closer look also showcases an asymmetrical center console, bolstered front seats, and a free-standing Touch 2 infotainment system with an eight-inch display. The company also highlights the driver-oriented layout with the ensemble slightly oriented towards the person behind the steering for easier operation and access.
Among the information tidbits we also found out the C-HR will be offered in three different color schemes including Dark Grey, Black/Blue, and Black/Brown. Safety and assistance is a ey selling point for the small crossover, with standard features including Adaptive Cruise Control, Automatic High Beam headlights, and Road Sign Assist, or Lane Departure Alert with steering control as well as a Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection. Upscale versions will receive optional amenities such as partial leather seats, heated front seats, and rear privacy glass, or the custom JBL audio system with nine different speakers. The European C-HR will be powered by a turbocharged 1.2-liter engine with 114 horsepower and 136 pound-feet of torque or they can select the eco-friendly hybrid that uses the same powertrain as the Prius.
