Is there anything interesting about its design?
Well, there sure is plenty of it. The C-HR looks not so much like a car designed by committee as one designed by 1000 committees, none of whom could agree on just how far to go in making it look edgy and modern and out there, so they just kept going.
Toyota tells us the car was designed to appeal to people with "active lifestyles" who "know what's cool" and have "FOMO" about their car buying, and hopefully it will float their boats, because the look is certainly divisive. It is undeniably a vehicle for people who like to be looked at.
The company should be applauded, though, for doing something different for a change. It really is the antidote to the Prius.
There's plenty of design going on inside as well, with lots of funky shapes and mostly quality feeling soft-touch materials, although the roof lining feels like a dry dish cloth, and there's some really, truly weird and nasty feeling diamond-studded plastic in the door linings.
Toyota calls the front seats the C-HR's 'Me Zone' and it does manage to reflect the kind of futuristic feel the whole vehicle is aiming for.
