It was worth it that Toyota boss Akio Toyoda demanded more courage from his designers a few years ago and also gave them the necessary freedom. The striking design of the currently face-lifted C-HR (Coupé High Rider) has not been revised, but it has been skilfully polished.
The optical design revision of the front and rear view does not make the characterful crossover a new car, but in the sum of numerous renewed details it creates a modern and pleasing impression with a presence typical of SUVs. For example with narrow LED headlights and a sculptural front. The rear is dominated by a spoiler growing out of the roof and interestingly shaped taillights. The large wheels look for protection under muscular wheel arches and suggest impressively off-road capability, which the front-wheel drive as a crossover, i.e. as a compact SUV, does not want to show and should show.
