Now six years old, Toyota has made another round of tweaks to the still-funky-looking C-HR following its debut last year.
Two years ago, just weeks before the nationwide facelift, cosmetic changes include new 18-inch alloy wheels for the mid-spec Plus and top-spec Luxury trims, along with ten colors comprising three new hues; Eclipse Black, Fierce Red and Midnight Purple.
As before, Luxury offers a two-tone roof option consisting of nine colors paired with a black roof, or silver in the case of Eclipse Black trim models.
In terms of specifications, all C-HR models come standard with a six-speaker audio system, a 4.2-inch TFT instrument cluster display, a reversing camera and an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and on- board 15 GB Wi-Fi kit.
