2018 Toyota C-HR - Let's Go Places, Many Places!

Introducing our newest project car, the 2018 Toyota C-HR!

We've had a series of "tame" project car builds at Super Street over the past few years. Some of these vehicles have included a Lexus NX, Scion iM and Mitsubishi Ralliart Sportback. Now you're probably wondering why we didn't build something like a 1,000hp GT-R, right? Well, it's because these cars are brand new from the factory and were given to us for just a one-year loan with the constraint that we have to return it back to the OEM in stock form. With that said, we trust you understand why we kept modifications on the tame side, and instead of building a full-on race or show car, we put together vehicles that relate to enthusiasts looking for an affordable and functional daily driver or mild project car. And since our iM went away last winter, it was time to fill that empty space in our garage. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome the newest member of the Super Street family; Toyota's latest crossover SUV, the '18 C-HR.

Right off the bat, the C-HR features a pretty sleek look from Toyota with aggressive exterior features and rear door handles that blend into the bodylines to give it sort of a coupe feel. Our entire staff has already taken turns driving it on a daily basis and not holding back. I've pushed it through the canyon roads of Angeles Crest Highway, and while the 144hp 2.0-liter engine is a bit lackluster, once at speed, the 'lil SUV corners surprisingly well.

So what do we have planned? Already on the docket are RS*R coilovers, Volk Racing wheels and Continental tires. And since the C-HR has already been such a big hit in Japan, we're making strides to import some goodies that'll give our C-HR some real JDM street cred. Stay tuned!

C-HR Renderings by Jon Sibal

Our good friend and talented illustrator Jon Sibal has graciously whipped up a few renderings to show you how our C-HR would look with 20-inch Volk Racing TE37 Ultra wheels in bronze. Pretty sick if you ask us! He also gaves us a visual of how our C-HR would look if we decided to wrap it in white or grey. Thoughts?!
