The Toyota C-HR 2018 makes its way to Bangkok with fetching accessories, looking eye-catching from afar.

The photos taken in 2018 Bangkok International Motor Show have shown two eye-catching Toyota C-HR 2018 models, the red Toyota C-HR TRD and the white pearl Toyota C-HR wearing a full Modellista kit.

Speaking of the former, the 2-tone red vehicle has attracted the spotlight with its outstanding suit of appearace built by the Toyota Racing Development.

Also make its way to the show is a white pearl C-HR coated with a full Modellista kit. Taking a closer look at the car, we easily recognize ornamental bits (the fake gills on the front wing), nice rims and the twin pipes.

The Toyota C-HR 2018 is manufactured at Gateway plant in Chachoengsao, Thailand from where the SUV will be exported to more than 100 countries. There are two engine choices available which are a hybrid 1.8L and an automatically aspirated 1.8L. The VVT-I motor Toyota used in the model produces 175 Nm of torque and 140 PS. It is mated to an automatic CVT with 7 virtual ratios. The engine comes compatible with E85.

There are many choices from exterior color to a tissue box cover. They may seem tacky but it is probably the intended idea of the carmaker to treat various tastes of customers. It's unsure at the moment whether the current Toyota Philippines model lineup will welcome this car.
