Toyota has released images of a stunning concept car that provides the first hint of a type of vehicle the company would like to bring to the small SUV market. The radical Toyota C-HR concept, which will have its world premiere next week at the Paris Motor Show, presents a bold new dynamic design language.
The striking blue C-HR concept introduces an expressive new "diamond architecture" styling theme to the segment and features a hybrid powertrain. Below its compact, sensual cabin profile, the lower bodywork has been sculpted to represent the faceted surfaces of a highly-durable, precision-cut gemstone.
The front view debuts new styling themes that hint at a future design direction for Toyota vehicles - a further development of the company's "under priority" and "keen look" design identity.
From the side, the highly-faceted lower body, aggressively angular rear shoulders and muscular wheel arches are contrasted with an exceptionally sleek cabin profile.
Highly-distinctive, aero-inspired, floating rear light clusters further enhance the broad shoulders of the concept car's lower bodywork.
