Stepping into the C-HR’s cabin is like climbing into a car from the future. Unfortunately, it’s let down by some cheap plastics and dingy back seats

Style

The Toyota C-HR’s cabin looks just as slick as its angular exterior. All models come with a large eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system as standard and you’ll find diamond details printed, moulded or embossed into many of the C-HR’s plastic trims. Unfortunately, the thick bezel around the infotainment screen and old-fashioned digital clock slightly ruin the concept-car illusion.

The glossy plastic on the centre console looks smart, but it’ll get scratched no matter how careful you are. The dashboard’s rather bulbous design makes your front-seat passenger feel a little more cramped than they ought to, as well.

In most cars, the nicest materials are reserved for the surfaces you spend most time touching. Not so in the Toyota C-HR – the plastics on its steering wheel and door handles feel disappointingly cheap. Thankfully, the front seats – fabric as standard but partially leather-trimmed in Excel models – are soft, supportive and will help you while away the miles in comfort.

The Toyota C-HR’s black roof lining and small rear windows can make it feel a little dark inside. You’ll be fine up front, but your passengers in the back may start to feel a little claustrophobic on long journeys.

The C-HR’s cabin looks great, from the front seats at least – in the back it’s like being locked in Darth Vader’s helmet

Infotainment

Every Toyota C-HR comes with an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system mounted in pride of place on the dashboard. Unfortunately, it’s not exactly the easiest to use and its rather low-res graphics aren’t anything to shout about, either.

There are a number of fixed buttons flanking the central display to help you access key features easily, but they don’t vibrate or click when you prod them. As a result, you’ll have to briefly take your eyes off the road to make sure the system’s registered your inputs.

Clear menu icons make picking a station on the standard DAB digital radio easy and pairing your phone using a Bluetooth connection is a breeze, too. However, you can’t get the Toyota C-HR with MirrorLink, Android Auto or Apple CarPlay smartphone mirroring features, which is a real pain.

Excel and Dynamic cars come with satellite navigation as standard. It’s simple to input your destination – using either a postcode or street name – and it’ll calculate three routes based on journey time, distance and fuel costs. Unfortunately, you can’t pinch to zoom or swipe to preview your route before you set off.

The standard six-speaker stereo sounds perfectly acceptable but you can upgrade to a JBL unit with nine speakers as part of the Premium Pack. It’s quite expensive, but it also comes with upgraded leather seats.
