Toyota C-HR interior, dashboard & comfort

The Toyota C-HR's dashboard feels well made and stylishly designed, although the infotainment system is a bit of a letdown

Interior, dashboard & comfort rating

3.0 out of 5

Toyota C-HR dashboard

Textured, colourful finishes and swooping architecture ensures that the C-HR looks as bold and confident inside as it does on the outside. The central eight-inch infotainment screen sits beneath a curved dashboard, and is the main focal point for the interior. A set of rocker switches beneath it give you controls for the heating and air-conditioning – no fiddling with the touchscreen for these – while all the switches and materials look and feel good.

Equipment, options & accessories

The Toyota C-HR Hybrid is offered in four trim levels: Icon, Design, Excel and GR Sport. The entry-level Icon, available only with the 1.8-litre engine, gets 17-inch alloy wheels, a reversing camera, dual-zone automatic air conditioning, Toyota's Safety Sense package of active safety technology and LED headlights as standard.

Design adds 18-inch alloy wheels, rear privacy glass, a piano-black console, rain-sensing wipers, front and rear parking sensors, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, heated front seats with powered lumbar adjustment, sat nav, keyless entry, heated door mirrors and parking assistance.

Excel features its own alloy-wheel design, rear LED lights, adaptive LED headlights, LED foglights, door mirror puddle lights, an adaptive front lighting system, a heated steering wheel, leather seat upholstery, powered driver-seat adjustment, rear cross-traffic alert with automatic braking and blind-spot monitoring.

The motorsport-inspired GR Sport arrived in early 2021, complete with unique trim inside and out, 19-inch alloys, stiffer suspension and sharper steering.

Infotainment, apps & sat nav

For the 2022 model year, Toyota introduced new infotainment software for the C-HR. This 'Toyota Smart Connect+' system is either standard or optional on all versions except the entry-level Icon. It promises to operate 2.4 times faster than the old system and gives access to a series of smart connected services, including cloud-based navigation with always-on traffic information, 3D city mapping, highway signage and fixed traffic camera locations. You can also use natural, conversational phrases to operate the multimedia and navigation systems hands-free.
