Toyota C-HR

A Toyota with an interesting interior and an edgy exterior that does not look too silly. Wow. Whatever next?

Perhaps they took the Lexus designers, reduced their meds down to safer levels and let them loose?

This might actually be a Toyota that people want to buy.

C HR IS  not the car for me

I think that looks pretty good. My wife saw the Lexus coupe when we escaped from the house for a while on Saturday afternoon and she commented that its sharp looks were so much fresher than all the blobby styling from other manufacturers (the new C Class coupe is according to her an ugly, overpriced Hyundai with a change of badge)

I like that too but it needs a proper petrol-electric hybrid power train rather than the asthmatic none sense from the Prius; then I could pull The Shed with it.

Although it's not a car for me, I'd rather see a car that doesn't try to look just as it did in 1974.

Like a Mini you mean?

It does look sharp, but if What Car's (more detailed) review is anything to go by, it seems like more style than substance. Interior and boot space appears to be somewhat poor.

Surely no one, let alone a 20something, single,  motoring journalist, should be choosing prospective wheels based on What Car reviews?!?!

What Car? Score each car on the basis of;

1) Boot size
2) Boot shape
3) Load height
4) Rear visibility

Then everything else a distant 5th

Never, ever use a What Car? review to buy a car.

Edgy = Ugly as fuck, in this case.

It looks like a Juke fucked a Civic.

You'd never mistake it for a Golf!

Well no. But I'd like at least some space in the boot to, you know, bring stuff home. And also do that young people thing of ferrying bicycles and shit like most people who buy these cars tend to do.

Like what? Its 100 litres more than mine and I have a child!

The bike can go on top, or fold the sets down. Harris managed to cart his around in an FF so I'm sure your mythical bike will fit in fine Ben  
BeN

The FF's boot space is huge though...

Bikes should either be on the roof or on the back, don't really understand why you'd want to put one in your car unless so attached to it a 'dirty weekend in the country' really means in the given sense...with a bike.

Well, maybe you should get one then!

A friend's just bought one.  Have pulled his leg that he needs to get some stupid sunglasses, as the cinema trailer shows lots of desperately hipsterish twats sporting them, and who are all slack-jawed in admiration at the car.
Bob Sacamano

It's a real Marmite car this - which is a good thing IMHO. I saw one last week and thought it looked good, then I saw one yesterday and was less keen. So it appears I like Marmite on alternate days.
Roadsterstu

I saw several in Gibraltar last week. Seems popular there! I like it, too.
Mike Amos

Afraid to say this is another "Sow's ear from a silk purse" machine.  Edgier than a broadsword it may be but the ugly butter knife was really hot when that got a slapping.
Humphrey The Pug

I think it looks an absolute mess, Honda are trying way too hard.

If they're styling Toyotas they certainly are!

I saw one this morning, I think it looks ace. It'd definitely be the crossover I'd choose were I forced to have one.
Nice Guy Eddie

Colleague of mines just ran up to me with a brochure for the C-HR in hand. Turns our he's gone and bough one to replace his Auris. I sent him away last week to go and by a GT86 as he's rather partial to Toyotas. Oh well.

Maybe this explains a lot. Manufacturers clearly get moles into the design departments of other manufacturers, whose job is to come up with shit designs or stupid idea. Trouble is, they're all at it.

Saw one yesterday. I was right.
Twelfth Monkey

I saw one today - it's certainly an oddity.  I don't find it as wilfully ugly as the Juke, but can't decide whether I am going to warm to it or not.
simonp

Certainly striking, but I'm not sure it's in a good way, or not. Definitely looks better in a dark metallic like what saw yesterday.
