Toyota C-HR Concept
Toyota takes aim at the compact sports crossover market with this new concept it showed off at the 2014 Paris Motor Show. We first saw some images of the C-HR a couple of weeks back, and now we have a few more details about the lightweight urban vehicle.
The small crossover offers a dramatic, sculpted design, with a low and sporty side profile, high-tech LED lighting, and some amazing looking wheels. Toyota says the two-door car draws inspiration from the GT-86 platform (sold as the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ here in the States), while offering the efficiency of a hybrid drivetrain. Measuring at 171″ long, 72.8″ wide, and 59″ high, it’s about 2″ wider and 2″ shorter in height, but almost 9″ longer than the Nissan Juke – the CH-R’s closest competitor.
While we still have no performance or drivetrain specs for the C-HR, what we do know is that the concept is pointing the future direction of Toyota’s European vehicle line.
