    TOYOTA HAS INTRODUCED a new updated trim level to its C-HR crossover range by adding the Design spec. The newcomer is intended as a more stylish and comfortable alternative to the Icon edition of the car. The 2018 C-HR range is available to order now from Scottish dealerships, with prices starting at £21,880. (Related: Roadtest — Toyota C-HR)

    Fitted with 18in alloys as standard, the Design also introduces a bright new Cyan Blue paint colour for the C-HR. Standard on the Design, the string colour is now an option across the rest of the range.

    As for kit, it benefits from  all of the equipment found in the Icon, with the addition of rear privacy glass, ambient cabin lighting, Toyota’s Touch 2 infotainment system with built in navigation, front and rear parking sensors, and semi-autonomous park assist. Heated seats with power adjustable lumbar support are all fitted as standard.


    There’s also dual-zone climate control, Toyota’s Safety Sense driver assistance and safety kit, plus a reversing camera fitted as standard. The C-HR Design is available with both the popular 122bhp 1.8-litre hybrid powertrain — favoured by 77% of C-HR buyers — plus the smaller 1.2-litre, 113bhp turbocharged unit.

    Toyota has also introduced tweaks across the rest of the C-HR range. The Excel gets full black leather upholstery and LED taillights, while the Dynamic trim now comes with matt black 18in alloys, a black fabric upholstery with silver dashboard trim, and an optional leather upholstery complemented by a premium audio setup by specialists JBL.

    As if that isn’t enough, the C-HR Icon can now also be specified with a Tech Pack optional package. This includes a blind spot monitoring system, rear crossways traffic alert, lane departure warning with steering assist and power folding mirrors.
