We will bring you more details on the all-new model in our Toyota C-HR News section.


  1. Instantly, I liked the strong body on this vehicle. The grey distinguished color is just perfect for me and definitely fits my style. I’ll have to check my local dealer to see if it’s in stock!

  2. The car looks sport and a bit bulky, seems like this is Toyota answer to Honda H-RV and New Nissan X-Trail. The velg reminds me of Honda’s car.

  3. It looks like a really refined version of the CR-V at first look. Is it a 2/3-door or I just can’t see the rear passenger entry? Either way, it looks pretty mean and I’d wanna test drive one soon!

  4. Just by looking at the images, the all-new Toyata CH-R will definitely stand out from the crowd. With its special features, no wonder it is considered most anticipated car this 2017.

  5. This car looks mean! The Fortuner has nothing on this! Can’t wait to see more of its technical specs, or better yet, to test-drive it!
