Frankfurt Show Highlights: Toyota C-HR II Concept
Toyota’s designers change some exterior elements, so it’s looked more production-ready. Up front, C-HR II isn’t looked weird like Juke, even though it still a concept car. Its headlights get redesign and now features LED Daytime Running Lights. The 3-point LED fog lights is replaced with boomerang-shaped. Big changes are on the side section. Now, C-HR II comes up as a four-door crossover, not two-door anymore. But Toyota cleverly disguises the rear doors with thin windows and bulging rear wheel-arches. And the line design of the study car is look alike its rival, Juke. And at the rear, we can see the busy design language with so many details and sculpted lines here and there. To be honest, at a glance it looked like Nissan Gripz Concept.
Overall, the C-HR II exterior styling is ready for production,especially at the front section. Meanwhile, at the side and rear I expect some major changes, including bigger windows for rear passengers and more simple design at the rear. For the best handling and control, Toyota developed the concept car on Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform. I expect to see the production version of C-HR II at 2016 Geneva Motor Show.
