The interior of the C-HR is quite the same and the fact that it is a hybrid model can be found only with the help of the eco meter. It is not all old school in the Toyota C-HR Hybrid because it does have an 8-inch infotainment system screen. The position of the screen is much higher than it used to be which the designers opine that allow them to give more height to the dashboard. All the center consoles are slightly curved towards the driver, giving him or her easy access when they are on the move.
The RAV4 Hybrid now makes seven gasoline-electric hybrid models for Toyota, far more than any other brand. It may seem odd that it took Toyota so long to develop a hybrid variant seeing that the Ford Escape Hybrid was offered a decade ago, although it has been replaced by other models.
Everything about the RAV4 Hybrid is nearly the same as the standard model. Blue background Toyota badging as well as hybrid badging are subtle distinctions. For 2016, all RAV4 models receive an updated front end outfitted with new LED headlamps and daytime running lights. Small changes to the lower rocker panel and rear bumper are also apparent, the latter also receiving new taillights. Further, Toyota replaced the entire wheel lineup and added three new paint schemes.
The front seats look sporty and supportive, with strongly bolstered upper and lower sections. While in the seats, passengers are treated to a JBL premium audio system and more luxury-oriented features like heated seats on the top-range models.
As far as the car coming to India is concerned, we surely think Toyota should take the plunge because of the way the consumers react to such cars and the trend is on the rise. But the Japanese car maker will wait and watch as it plans to introduce the car in Europe first and if India does get to see the car, it will only be in 2018, where the company might bring it to the Auto Expo to check out the reaction of the crowd and then decide on the fate of this compact crossover.
