2018 Toyota CH-R – 2017 Chicago Auto Show

It seems that Toyota has made 2018 Toyota CH-R only for competition with Ford EcoSport, Chevrolet Trax, Honda HR-V or Mazda CX-3, but many details say that it will beat them with their known features and improvements. Preparing this car for the market eager for crossovers Toyota knew that it has to be stronger but a prettier car for never satisfied buyers of these particular models. New Toyota CH-R was presented at Chicago Motor Show, beside Toyota RAV4, Toyota Tundra TRD Sport, and Toyota Sequoia.


As the official Toyota site explained, the new 2018 Toyota CH-R is “Distinctive diamond” and that can be read in many different ways. It is quite different than even popular models from the Toyota by now, but also a precious unique coupe from the factory known to well design cars. The front end of the car represents the diamond’s shape and a cross-section of the diamond, while front and rear lights, aside from the LED technology, are shaped in form of trapezoid.

The slightly rounded front end, with an incorporated front line in hood line, makes the 18-inch wheels much wider than they are, but that impression stops after you see the side design of the car. There is a deeply curved line starting from the front wheel and finish somewhere at the highest top of the rear end, which supports front door and round the appearance of the rounded car.


The feeling of sitting inside of the diamond is maybe one of the many feelings manufacturers wanted to achieve in new 2018 Toyota CH-R. A slightly rounded cabin has soft-touched materials, modern dashboard, and well-designed seats, but that is just a start of the adventure. Even though the car looks a little wrinkled, the cabin is a wide and very comfort, with available all buttons from driver’s seat. Those buttons are not for nothing there, since many of them turn on some of the function on the long lists of additional parts, like a rearview camera, blind-spot monitoring, forward collision warnings, radar cruise control, USB connection, Bluetooth, dual-zone climate control, heating on the seats and many other things.


The only available information says that 2018 Toyota CH-R will have 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 144 horsepower. Paired with CVT automatic transmission it will give the power on front wheels. There is information that Toyota will possibly make a model with the 7-speed automatic transmission for sporty version, too.
