Toyota C-HR ConceptOctober 4th, 2014
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.
