If you're looking for a new Toyota in Edmonton, the 2018 Toyota C-HR may have what you need. Blending the sporty characteristics of a coupe with a small SUV delivers a model unlike anything else on the market. The following are the highlights of this compact model:

1. Coupe meets SUV

That this SUV has coupe-like properties is evident in its profile. The 2018 Toyota C-HR features a cascading roofline and a high beltline, similar to the Toyota 86 sports car. At first glance, it appears the C-HR has two doors, but on closer inspection, you'll find a pair of rear door handles semi-concealed at the top of the rear roof pillar.

2. Eye fetching colours and a special roof treatment

The new Toyota C-HR delivers your choice of four standard colours including Black Sand Pearl and Blue Eclipse Metallic. For a slight extra cost, eye-fetching Blizzard Pearl and Ruby Flare Pearl can be had. Adding extra drama to the look are the available two-tone colour schemes featuring white roofs with three contrast colours -- Ruby Flare Pearl, Radiant Green Mica and Blue Eclipse Metallic.

3. Diamonds are forever

The flowing style of the exterior carries over to the interior. Take note of the diamond patterns evident on the speaker covers, vents, buttons, switches and even the headliner. The look complements the exterior styling -- for example, inspect where the rear door meets the roof pillar -- diamonds!

4. Room for five

The 2018 Toyota C-HR seats five and dresses the interior in black. The front seat is especially roomy, offering 1105 mm of legroom. When not in use, fold down the rear seat to expand cargo capacity to accommodate your weekend getaway luggage or yard sale finds.

5. Equipped, not stripped

Toyota offers the C-HR with one well-equipped trim: XLE. This model comes with full power accessories, a tilt and telescopic steering column, dual-zone climate control and a front centre console box with armrest. You'll also find a six-speaker audio system with Aha Radio, a USB port, auxiliary input jack, Bluetooth connectivity and a 7-inch colour display. Add the Premium Package and you'll gain push-button start along with power-folding and heated side mirrors.

6. Safety is not an afterthought

All 2018 Toyota models feature the latest safety features. The C-HR has a suite of airbags, including a driver's knee airbag, pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, lane departure alert with steering assist, automatic high beams and dynamic radar cruise control. Choose the Premium Package and gain blind spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert.

7. With power to spare

Every 2018 Toyota C-HR has a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine, generating 144 horsepower and 139 pound-feet of torque. This feisty engine works alongside a continuously variable automatic transmission, ensuring peak performance when you want it while remaining efficient. Indeed, according to the Government of Canada's Test Methods, the C-HR earns 34 mpg.

Now that you know the highlights of the CHR, why not make an appointment with your new Toyota Edmonton dealer to test drive one? It offers the complete package for anyone looking for a compact model.
