The Scion C-HR Concept is named for its Compact size and High Ride height. With four doors and a hatch for supreme functionality, it’s the perfect vehicle for “yuccies,” the young urban creatives who inspired the design.
These customers put an emphasis on great design and wanted something distinctive, sophisticated, passionate and clean. Participants in the research identified images that had a harmony of form and function: sleek chopsticks made from recycled materials, an earthy but modern terrarium, and a cutting board with grid lines for precise slicing.
Taking inspiration from a diamond with sheered sides, fthe overhead view, the diamond points have been sharply cut in the front, rear and sides, giving view to the round fender flares visible from every angle of the car. Graphite black accents on the grille, rear bumper, fender flares and lower side panels reflect the strength and stance of the vehicle. Meanwhile, the all-piano black roof enhances the C-HR’s sleek and stylish profile. The 21-inch wheels continue the cut gem theme and feature spokes with chiseled cut-outs shaped with the car’s profile in mind.
The concept car was unveiled today at the Los Angeles Auto Show. More information about the timing and technical specifications for the C-HR will be available when the production version debuts in 2016.
