Moving from a three-door to a five-door model, for practicality purposes, did not result in a dramatic change in design from the first time we laid eyes on the concept either.
The sculpted diamond-inspired styling at the front is still retained although the headlights have been replaced to LED units. Even the daytime-running lights which were previously an LED array are now a light bar which makes it look better we must say.
Elsewhere, the two-tone blue and black roof colour scheme is replaced with a more conventional glossy black colour scheme. More conventional side mirrors which are certainly larger than the previous concept are also put in place, better suited for a production model. The raked roofline is still present though as are the fresh-looking wheels.
Underpinning the concept is the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA), which makes its debut on recently introduced fourth-generation Toyota Prius. Toyota say that its plans to pair the concept with a small and lightweight hybrid powertrain that promises a thermal efficiency level exceeding 40%.
Come March 2016 when the Geneva Motor Show kicks off, Toyota hopes to introduce the production-ready model of the C-HR, possibly pitting the model against other C-segment crossovers like the Nissan Qashqai and Juke, and Renault Kadjar.
