    dsego84 6 месяцев назад @mah mam hey, whatever you want to believe. must be the same reason it took the car industry 10 years to adopt mp3 CDs (when they were already outdated) and another 10 to put usb ports in. must be some special "space-grade" shielded electronics made to work in a car. I wonder how my smartphone survives the harsh conditions in my car when I use google's gps navigation.
  • mah mam
    mah mam 6 месяцев назад @dsego84 well you got everything wrong, except the gimmicky part, yes they are gimmicky, for me an aux port is all i need, maybe Bluetooth too, but they don't put cheap chipsets to cut cost, a decent modern phone chip won't cost more than a 100$ max, it just won't work properly
  • dsego84
    dsego84 6 месяцев назад @mah mam oh man, it's just gimmicks, these infotainment systems are just whatever is cheapest, just like cheapo laptops with a celeron and 2gigs of ram that your mom buys because she doesn't know better. and we all know new windows doesn't run on that, but manufacturers don't care and still sell this crap. it's a bullet point, like those dinky cameras they had on cheap nokia phones before the iphone, they were crap but hey, the phone has a camera. there is nothing designed or carefully planned here. they design cars around a budget and then see how many fake bling they can cram in to make it appealing to ignorant consumers.

  • Stephen Butler
    Stephen Butler 2 года назад @CJ P it was their intention to give it the Coupé look. The 'C' stands for Coupé. Coupé High Rider. I own a Coupé, and they all suffer from smaller back window poor view out, but I've never seen it to the extent of this. It may aswell not have windows. If you are to look to the side, all you see is 'C' pillar. You need to lean forward to actually see out. Add that the the very dark interior, it's extremely gloomy interior. It's just a not very nice. Also the materials at close inspection are not very good. And that screen looks so poor to. It's worse in person. The Rav4 doesn't have a modern interior, its actually quite agricultural but it's miles ahead of this. The kuga is a far nicer place to be, and the he 3008 is probably the best interior for under £50k nevermind the £25k of he GT-line is. (shame about the engines).

  • hawkesworth1712
    hawkesworth1712 2 года назад Who cares about small windows? When was the last time a kid in the back seat looked out the window? These windows are going to diminish the glare on the tablet/mobile phone screen and kids will probably love them.
  • Jeremy Lister
    Jeremy Lister 2 месяца назад @hawkesworth1712 this is getting silly. More visibility good. Less visibility bad
  • hawkesworth1712
    hawkesworth1712 2 месяца назад @Jeremy Lister . What makes you think a child is visible through car windows. A friend of mines daughter was killed when a truck backed over her in his driveway. That was back before reversing cameras and parking sensors were invented. Take a look at the cars on the road now and tell me if you think a small child is visible through the window of an SUV. Like I said, if people still rely on what they can see out a car window they should hand in their licence.
  • Jeremy Lister
    Jeremy Lister 2 месяца назад (изменено) @hawkesworth1712 if you remember your test, you are required to use your eyes to directly or via mirrors look at your surroundings. A screen is helpful, but cannot match the fidelity, image size or peripheral vision of the human eye. If the trend continues in car design, there will be no glass, only screens. Odd prediction? Nope. Can't remember the details, but a car company has produced a prototype with no glass, just screens on the inside, might have been at Frankfurt show.
  • hawkesworth1712
    hawkesworth1712 2 месяца назад @Jeremy Lister . The car has a reversing camera, sensors front and back, blind spot warning, cross traffic alert and three mirrors. If that's not enough to avoid squashing a kid then the driver needs to hand their licence back.
  • Jeremy Lister
    Jeremy Lister 11 месяцев назад hawkesworth1712. It's about maximising visibility, so you don't squash kids while reversing or side swipe another car joining traffic or changing lane. These cars usually have 'stylish' mirrors as well, meaning too small. Camera might help, but you can't get away from the fact that the basic design is seriously flawed from a safety point of view. Nice looker though.

    James Kinnane 2 года назад lovely machine. hybrid version is the one to go for, really nice to drive, although cvt gearbox can be noisy it's also extremely smooth. shame they didn't make the car that bit bigger though. I love the design, love to see them take the same approach with the styling of the next rav4.
  • Michael K
    Michael K 2 года назад seriously now, your comments make me can it be that no one likes the design of this car? This is the first time i see a car in its final stage to look so close to a futuristic concept. I mean everyone goes "wow" with the presentations of concept cars And now that Toyota actually made a car look modern futuristic straight out of the original concept design, everyone on the internet bashes Toyota and the designers and the final appearance of this car... The car looks amazing! It looks like a Lexus concept Seriously whats wrong with you people? Is this some kind of Europe vs Japan automobile fanboyism? I really would like to know what car do you drive? Do you like the design of cars like WV golf or Audi Q2?...Because no matter if its 2017 they still do look like a boxy tin bucket for shit gathering... Toyota makes the most reliable cars. I wont compare their reliability with Peugeot nor other European brands at that price point. Yeah you can get the Peugeot 3008 for less money but you will spend double for all the problems that will occur after a few years...
  • Arun Parkin
    Arun Parkin 3 месяца назад (изменено) Personally I think the design of the Toyota C-HR is rather ugly; it has large wheel-arches stick out of the car and has too many angles and creases. The front end is rather bulbous and everything just seems messy and out of proportion. Yes, I can understand why people may like it and it does look very interesting. However I prefer the straight, clean lines and neatness found on old saloon and estate cars. The Austin/Morris 1100s are nice cars to look at.

  • OfficialPixel - CSGO Content
    OfficialPixel - CSGO Content 7 месяцев назад I absolutely adore the rear and side views. They look futuristic and aggressive. Not so much the front, though. The front lights and front area just seem too curvy and dont quite fit in with the overall deaign.

  • Jeremy Lister
    Jeremy Lister Год назад Ok, you're reversing. Camera is bust/dirty. You don't see the child due to the lousy rear visibility and tiny windows. The accident would have been avoided in a VW or Skoda. Pretty car though.
  • Haiho HH
    Haiho HH Год назад Michael K well opinion is opinion. I personally dislike this car, but I can understand why there are people who loves this car and I respect it. Heck, there are even people who buys Juke or Azteca. I personally love the new designs of French cars such as Peugeot 3008 or Citroen C5 Aircross. While VW is just meh for me..

  • KennyM
    KennyM 2 года назад I think that in europe and especially UK people are way more conservative. I'd be happy to have a C class, 3 series or A4 Audi but im not going to lie and say they look nice or great. Overral they are average looking, and personally I see many flaws: - differences in exterior design between lower and upper classes doesnt seem enough to highlight the more expensive cars, especially in the Merc lineups (C, E and S Class). If you buy an E or S class you dont want misinformed people (read: not car fanatics) to mistake them for a C Class. - the interior in the 3 series is awful and outdated. - the interior and exterior in many Audis hasnt really changed in the past 10 years. Especially when it comes to Audi I think it's ridiculous and unnaceptable how a company seem to put so little effort into changing their cars, they are focusing on SUV's and completely forgot about the rest, and yet people still buy them, in fact they like Audi mostly because of the under the radar looks.
