La variante chic del crossover nipponico offre una vernice bicolore e vari accessori, ma sembra destinata al solo mercato thailandese
Un'auto "firmata". Toyota collabora con il famoso marchio di moda Karl Lagerfeld per dar vita a un'edizione speciale del C-HR, caratterizzata da un bicolore bianco-nero sia all'esterno che negli interni. Una serie speciale che però - almeno per il momento - rimane confinata nel mercato thailandese.
I prezzi per la Toyota C-HR di alta moda partono da 1.219.000 baht thailandesi (34.484 euro al cambio attuale), che includono anche vari accessori come borse e portachiavi, con lo specifico marchio C-HR by Karl Lagerfeld.
L'esterno della Toyota C-HR by Karl Lagerfeld Limited Edition mostra un Pearl White per i montanti, i gusci degli specchietti, il labbro del paraurti anteriore, lo spoiler sul tetto e le finiture del paraurti posteriore.
Dello stesso colore sono anche la decalcomania che corre sotto i finestrini laterali e l'emblema di Karl Lagerfeld sopra i passaruota posteriori. Tutto il resto dell'esterno è di colore nero, compresi i cerchioni da 17 pollici.
All'interno, il cruscotto mantiene lo schema di colori dell'esterno, grazie a una striscia bianca con il logo di Karl Lagerfeld. Il bianco è ripreso anche per gli inserti, in pelle, sui sedili.
Un modello recente
Toyota, comunque, ha di recente aggiornato la C-HR standard per il modello 2020: il nuovo design della calandra, dei fari e del paraurti anteriore hanno dato all'auto un aspetto leggermente diverso, mentre all'interno si trova un nuovo sistema di infotainment più connesso, anche con Apple CarPlay e Android Auto.
Come già detto, però, la Karl Lagerfeld Limited Edition sembra una creazione specifica per il mercato thailandese, quindi è probabile che non arriverà mai in Italia o in Europa.
