The interior of Toyota’s dramatic new crossover has been revealed

This is the interior of the new Toyota C-HR, shown ahead of the car’s official launch later this year.

The official pictures show the final design of the crossover’s interior, which features a blue accent line circling the cabin.

Pictures also show a more upmarket appearance to the C-HR’s interior than its current Toyota stablemates, with a brown leather-trimmed dashboard sitting above a cockpit of glossy materials and metallic trim.

The seats are heavily bolstered and upholstered in black and brown leather, suggesting the interior we’re seeing is nearer the top of the C-HR range. More standard plastics appear lower in the cockpit, as is standard practice for areas that aren’t as frequently touched.

An 8.0in touchscreen dominates the dash, sitting high on the driver’s eye level, leaving room below for the climate control switchgear. Controls for adaptive cruise control and hybrid powertrain buttons are also visible, along with a variety of switchgear on the steering wheel.

One of the more eye-catching of the interior materials is the metallic, textured trim pictured on the door cards, which Toyota says is scattered throughout the interior, and complements the car’s crisp exterior design.

We have already caught a glimpse of the dials and infotainment screen during our first ride of the C-HR, although Toyota kept the rest of the interior under wraps. Our first ride can be found here.

More information will follow as Toyota reveals more details on the C-HR, in addition to the announcement of prices and specs ahead of the car’s expected launch early next year.

Certainly looks a lot better than many of Toyota's recent efforts but as suggested by the artical, certainly a high end model. The proof of how good it is will be with the base / mid level models.

As a side note, I really am not getting on with the whole touch screen protrusion thing, this car being the latest in a line of new vehicles sporting such an appendage. I understand why they do this (so when you are fiddling whilst driving your eyes are less taken off the road) but it looks inelegant and arguably you are more likely to fiddle!

 

 

It's all about the twisties........

OK, a few splashes of colour but overall, despite a potentially appealing design, it is like a cave in there. Toyota have even made the headlining black to add to the claustrophobic feel. WIll there be a light coloured option? Highly unlikely, but even if there is it will almost certainly not be offered in the UK.

The exterior shots we've seen so far show it to have very little glass area towards the rear three-quarters, so I think it would take a great deal of light-coloured trim for it to look anything other than cave like.
