Toyota C-HR compact crossover revealed in production-ready guise


First images of the Toyota C-HR hybrid ahead of its global debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show tomorrow.

First images of the new Toyota C-HR hybrid crossover have now been revealed online, ahead of the car’s global debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show tomorrow. Featuring a modern-day design, Toyota C-HR was showcased as a concept at the 2014 Paris Motor Show. Then, at the 2015 Frankfurt and Tokyo Motor Show, C-HR was unveiled in pre-production guise. And now, finally we have the real deal with us.

Compared to the concept, the production spec C-HR features much smaller wheels and a taller roof. This has been done so as to accommodate taller rear seat passengers.


Toyota C-HR is a cross between a five door coupe and a compact SUV. It features a raised stance but a low-slung roofline. Based on the advanced TNGA – Toyota’s New Global Architecture, Toyota C-HR is designed for buyers in Europe, where it will compete with the likes of Chevrolet Trax, Nissan Juke, Honda HR-V, Mazda CX-3, Jeep Renegade and Fiat 500X. Post European launch, it will also be launched in many other countries globally.

Speaking about engine options, Toyota C-HR is a hybrid vehicle which will only be offered with a petrol-electric hybrid powertrain, details of which are yet under wraps. More details will soon follow. Stay tuned to Rushlane as we cover the 2016 Geneva Motor Show LIVE.
