Production version of Toyota C-HR to be revealed at Geneva
The Geneva Motor Show next month will host the global debut of the production-ready model based on the Toyota C-HR Concept.
NEXT WEEK THE WORLD will see whether the production version of the Toyota C-HR Concept has lost any of the funk in the move from concept to production. Toyota has released a teaser image and a few lines announcing the global reveal. Here’s what it had to say:
“The C-HR will give Toyota a powerful new presence in the fast-growing small SUV market. Based on Toyota New Global Architecture, it brings the promise of an engaging drive experience. The C-HR’s dramatic styling represents a breakthrough in the segment, and shows the new face of Toyota. It matches a stunning five-door coupé design to an elevated SUV-style cabin combined with a contemporary high-riding driving position.”
The new whatever-it’ll-be-called production version of the C-HR Concept sits on the same platform as the recently released Prius and it’s expected to inherit that model’s hybrid drivetrain and, in some markets it might be offered with an all-wheel drive set-up. Like the new crop of Hyundai and Kia models coming out, it’s likely there’ll be a variety of conventional engines offered as well… think of this as a one-size almost fits all type of vehicle.
For more, we’ll have to wait until the unveiling at Genevan in the first week of March.
