I think a black roof on almost any vehicle compliments them. It's also extremely helpful that manufacturers are starting to offer it as an oem option now as well. But count me in on that, a black roof would be great !

A black roof gives it the illusion of a floating roof. Count me in too, especially with a bright body paint like white and blue.

Thanks for those comparison photos. I really like the black roof too. Does anyone know how much the option is though ? Would it be more worth it to just get it wrapped externally ?

Looking at the UK and other brochures online, it appears as if the metallic black roof comes with certain trim level(s).

I checked out the C-HR manual too while I as at it. Seeing as I am going from a 2013 Toyota Matrix to this vehicle, I saw a lot of new stuff.

The black roof doesn't show up on the configuration page, guess it's just in the brochure and you'll have to request it at the dealership.

I'll also be getting the black roof. Reason being is I hate the floating roof design and instead rather go all black for that seemless non-random look. Plus it also helps to give the CH-R a higher end look, look around and you'll see some higher end vehicles have black roofs and pillars.

So just in the brochures and not on the configurator. Don't you love when they make things difficult lol. All I'm trying to do is pre-plan my order darn it !

Speaking of paint, the accent packs do add a bit more personality to the C-HR, not that the car needs it. I'd want a black roof on white paint with dark grown or green accents.

That's definitely a different setup than the regular would choose. But I'm in the same boat as the white and black roof. I wouldn't go for the accent pack though as they're very minor details that I don't think are justified by the price. Can easily take it somewhere to get painted or even plasti-dip/wrap them yourself for way cheaper and in a variety more colors.

Definitely not worth the price Toyota slapped on the accents. Could easily just plasti dip certain sections yourself for less than a quater of that price.

It's totally not worth the price. To be honest it doesn't even look that great either in my opinion. Won't be wasting money on that stuff, rather put it towards audio equipment that I'll be stuffing in there.

It's beautiful! Did you take those pictures and did they let you sit inside?

The rear passenger door handles look higher up than I anticipated, may be awkward to open it the first few times.

No. My sister sent them to me. Don't know where she got them.
She likes the C-HR as well.

In the U.K. The black roof was on the Dynamic model, we pick up our pearl white with black roof hybrid in about 4 days. Test drove a black one but went for white, even though we have never seen one in the flesh in that colour. Really can't wait to pick it up.

Just ordered my 1.2 excel the black roof is only available on the range topping dynamic.I wanted black so didn't effect me on the roof but got the lime green accent kit and wheel inserts,tinted wind deflectors and the sports kit but got an email from the dealer saying it will take 2 months longer for the kit to be supplied and fitted before delivery gutted.Thinking about just getting the kit when available so i get it sooner.

Darn, an extra 2 months for the accent kit ?! That's pretty crazy... I would probably do the same as you if I were to get it. It's also something you can get done elsewhere for probably cheaper and in your own custom color of your liking?

Not seeing black roof option right now.

I am not seeing the black roof option. Just a gloss white contrasting roof option.

"Toyota also offers an optional 'R-Code' paint scheme for all C-HRs, which is a two-tone color combo consisting of a white roof and either a blue, red, or teal body."

"Speaking of the roof, it is only offered either in white or in body color, but Toyota engineers are also considering a black roof option for the 2019 MY. "
