Default Toyota previews new C-HR crossover concept bound for Paris








We're now just a few weeks away from the start of the Paris Motor Show, and when the doors open at the Porte de Versailles, Toyota will be among the many automakers with new wares to show – including the new concept car pictured in this latest teaser image.

Called the C-HR, the concept is designed to represent an "innovative vision for a compact crossover model", incorporating "a new design language with an engaging driving experience and a hybrid powertrain." The Japanese industrial giant isn't saying much else, but the C-HR is set to debut alongside the finalized exterior design for its upcoming new fuel cell sedan.

Toyota, of course, became a pioneer in the compact crossover segment when it introduced the first-generation RAV4 way back in 1994. If the silhouette is anything to go by, however, the C-HR concept appears to adopt a far more streamlined form. Watch this space for more.

Toyota C-HR hybrid crossover coupe concept leak ahead of Paris








Last week, Toyota previewed an upcoming concept called the C-HR and promised it would debut at the upcoming Paris Motor Show. It didn't say much more or give us anything beyond a silhouette and the shape of the lights, but here we have the first images of the finalized form.

The C-HR envisions a hybrid crossover coupe with angular styling that looks ready to take on the Nissan Juke. It's far sportier than a RAV4, and looks closer to how we'd imagine the next-generation Scion FR-S would look like if it were riding on a jacked-up suspension – with some show car elements thrown in for good measure, like a gloating roof, radical lighting and the usual absence of door handles and usable wing mirrors.

Of course, this being a Toyota concept, it packs a hybrid powertrain, although specifications did not leak out along with the images. Overall the form looks pretty striking, if decidedly unsubtle. We'll look forward to bringing you more as the Paris show rapidly approaches.

Default Scion's SUV

Toyota preparing Scion-badged Nissan Juke fighter

















































As we've said on multiple occasions, the sub-compact crossover market is The Next Big Thing™. With that in mind, Toyota's lack of a competitor to the new breed of super-small, super-cute crossovers like the Nissan Juke, Honda HR-V, Mazda CX-3, and Jeep Renegade has been especially glaring. But as these photos show, the hole in the Japanese giant's lineup could soon be filled.

Our spies captured this heavily disguised prototype testing in the deserts of the American southwest, signaling that Toyota is preparing to wade into the Nissan Juke's space by offering a tiny, but very heavily styled crossover of its own. Our spy photographers call the cute ute's look "aggressive," citing inspiration from the Toyota C-HR concept from the 2014 Paris Motor Show. Based on the meaty wheels and tires and what we can see through the camo, we're inclined to agree with their assessment.

Underneath that sheet metal, we're told the new car rides on Toyota's new NGA platform. Like the Juke, a four-cylinder engine and continuously variable transmission will be on offer, although there's no telling whether Toyota will follow its rival's enthusiast beat and offer a six-speed manual version. What we find most interesting about all of this conjecture, though, is what it means for Scion, rather than its parent.

Introducing a small crossover is the next logical step for Toyota's troubled sub-brand, and would serve as a delectable followup to the recently released iA sedan and iM hatch. Such a three-model lineup, when combined with the enthusiast-oriented FR-S, would transform Scion into a force to be reckoned with in the entry level space. Supporting this conjecture isn't too hard, either. As the spy photos show, this camo'd tester is being supported by a xB, the closest thing Scion (or its parent company, for that matter) have to a sub-compact CUV.

It's unclear just when this new model will make its debut, but if Toyota hopes to make inroads into this popular new segment, this CUV will need to arrive before its extremely competent rivals can establish a solid foothold.

Toyota C-HR Concept: Previewing a Future Scion Crossover

Weird chasing weird: Toyota plans a Nissan Juke competitor.


Toyota is known for a lot of things, but whimsy and weirdness are not chief among them. Sure, the new Prius is weird, but not in a fun way. The new C-HR concept, on the other hand, is weird in a great way. Even better, it’s headed for production and, if we’re reading the tea leaves correctly, it’ll probably be badged a Scion for the United States. That gives it free license to let its freak flag fly.
An evolution of the matte-blue “design study” of the same name that debuted last year at the Paris auto show, the new C-HR has sprouted an extra set of doors for a total of four and looks nearly as wild as its predecessor despite being “a step closer to production.” The C-HR concept rides high on a set of huge wheels pushed way out to the corners of the swoopy body, which features an extra-aggressive iteration of Toyota’s corporate “Angry Birds” face. As with the Nissan Juke, there are a number of jarring details in the C-HR’s design, including an odd flat plane in the front bumper, headlamps mounted nearly at chest level, a deep swage line rising up before the rear fenders, and a dramatic waistline peak in the rear doors. We particularly dig the floating roof treatment and the L-shaped taillamps that shoot off the body like a pair of handles, the better for daredevil skateboarders to grab, yo.



Much is likely to change when we see the production-intent version, which Toyota says will happen at the 2016 Geneva auto show. We expect that the roofline will be altered to accommodate taller passengers, while the greenhouse should also grow a bit so those same folks can actually see out. Minor bits such as the diffuser, mirrors, and headlamp innards could change, too, and the wheels and tires will certainly shrink to humbler dimensions. If it indeed becomes the long-awaited Scion crossover on which we’ve previously reported, we shall see how much Toyota changes the front end to sync it up with any of Scion’s current products, none of which are seemingly linked in any way through design. For our part, we hope that Toyota changes as little as possible.

The Toyota C-HR concept—as will, we assume, the production version—utilizes the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) that underpins the 2017 Prius, a vehicle that’s also making its auto-show debut in Frankfurt. Not coincidentally, the C-HR concept also is a hybrid, says Toyota, although the company didn’t say which, if any, of its powertrain components are shared with the Prius. The future production model almost certainly will be powered by a naturally aspirated four-banger and will offer front- and all-wheel drive, as do all of its competitors.
Speaking of, the C-HR or Scion iC (you heard it here first!) or whatever it’s called will face off against the likes of the Juke, the Mazda CX-3, and the Jeep Renegade when it hits the streets, likely by the end of next year. It’s worth noting that just a few steps away on the Frankfurt show floor, Nissan upped its own funkiness quotient by unveiling the wild Gripz concept, a production version of which may debut in 2017 as a companion to the Juke.

Toyota C-HR production version spied with full camo on the Nurburgring

2016 Toyota C-HR production version spy photo / S. Baldauf / SB-Medien

Debuts at next year's Geneva Motor Show

Our spy photographers have caught on camera a prototype of the Toyota C-HR set to go on sale in the second half of 2016.
After last year's concept and a follow-up at IAA earlier this month, Toyota is now putting the finishing touches on their brand new compact crossover which will share the same TNGA platform with the Prius. The original concept had a very striking design and took the shape of a three-door, but the revised version on display at IAA is closer to the production car as it has rear doors and conventional mirrors while the styling is less futuristic.
Hiding underneath that extensive camouflage is the production body which will be toned down, but the depth of the changes is not known at this point. The interior also remains a mystery taking into consideration Toyota didn't release any images with the cabin of the two concepts, but expect a better fit and finish as promised for all future TNGA-based products.
The standard versions of the car will get conventional engines, but we won't be too surprised if Toyota is cooking up a hybrid version especially since the concept uses hardware sourced from the Prius. However, chances are this more eco-friendly version will not be launched from day one so it will likely come out in 2017.

Toyota C-HR production version returns in new spy photos


2016 Toyota C-HR production version spy photo / Automedia

Plug-in hybrid version planned

Toyota has a brand new compact crossover in the works and we can check it out here in a new series of spy shots and the first video footage.
One of the first models to ride on the newly developed TNGA platform, Toyota's yet unnamed crossover will be introduced in production guise at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. They have been playing the teasing game for quite some time as a C-HR three-door concept with a striking design was displayed about a year ago at the Paris Motor Show while now an evolution of the concept with rear doors and a more down to earth design is exhibited at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
What we have here is the third guise of the model, a fully camouflaged prototype performing a series of tests on public roads to make sure the production car will live up to Toyota's expectations for the highly competitive compact crossover segment. It shares many bits and pieces with the new Prius, so this can only mean a hybrid setup is planned along with conventionally-powered versions.
It will be interesting to see the crossover's design as although the second concept is more down to earth, it still stands out with its futuristic shape and we are curious to find out how the concept's exterior will be translated to the production car. As for the interior, Toyota did not show the cabin of the two concepts, but they did promise all future models using the TNGA platform will benefit from a more upscale interior with improved materials and chances are some of the parts will be sourced from the Prius.
Following its Geneva reveal in March, the production-ready Toyota C-HR will likely go on sale in the second half of 2016.

Toyota C-HR crossover to be revealed at 2016 Geneva motor show





The production version of the Toyota C-HR concept - a Nissan Juke rival - will be revealed at the 2016 Geneva motor show.
The Japanese brand first showed its idea of a small crossover at the Paris motor show last autumn; at the Frankfurt motor show this autumn it tweaked that concept's looks to produce a vehicle that's said to be much closer to the final production version. Toyota has now confirmed that the final production version of the car will be shown at the Geneva show in spring 2016, with sales starting before next summer.
The biggest difference between the Frankurt concept and the original was the addition of a pair of rear doors - a sign that, like the Juke, the production version of the car is likely to be offered as a five-door only. Much of the original show car's complex surfacing has been retained, however, along with a sloping rear roofline that's designed to give it a more sporting stance.
The C-HR will be made on Toyota's TNGA (Toyota New Generation Architecture) platform, which is making its production-car debut at Frankfurt underneath the latest-generation of Prius. Toyota has also confirmed that it will be offered as a hybrid; the firm claims this it will be the first hybrid model in its class, although it does not state whether conventionally powered versions of the C-HR will also be available.
Recent spy shots have shown two different prototypes of the same crossover testing on different continents. Both cars confirmed that the C-HR's two-door coupe style had been translated into a four-door layout.
The C-HR is expected to be powered a four-cylinder powerplant and CVT gearbox, sitting below the RAV4 in Toyota's range. It's expected to be the same size as a Nissan Juke but offer interior space that rivals the Qashqai's.
Potential customers are 
said to have favoured the concept’s looks over more traditional interpretations of crossover themes.
The C-HR’s looks were created in response to a demand from company boss Akio Toyoda for Toyota’s designers to be more adventurous. Recent designs for Lexus, Toyota’s luxury brand, have shown the initial response to that demand.
Rumours suggest the crossover could be called Auris Cross, although there has been no official confirmation of this. It was first spied testing in Germany around 18 months ago.

If it weren't for Toyota throwing money at this brand, they wouldn't exist. Who the fuck buys this junk?

I think that Hyundai/KIA have grown leaps and bounds above a lot of the Japanese (and even domestic) competition in a lot of segments. If that wasn't the case the head of Honda a few years back wouldn't have said he was worried about Hyundai/KIA when the Sonata/Optima came out.

Confirmed: Production Toyota/Scion C-HR Crossover on the Way




As soon as Toyota mentioned that the latest iteration of the C-HR concept, which debuted at this year’s Frankfurt auto show, sat on the company’s newest architecture, we assumed any production model would do the same. Now, following the Tokyo auto show, we have confirmation of both: the production version of the C-HR indeed will use the new Prius’s TNGA platform and, well, that there will be a production version of the C-HR crossover.

We learned of the C-HR’s future at a roundtable discussion with Toyota’s executive vice president Mitsuhisa Kato, who said that the Prius was the first car to use TNGA and the next will be the production C-HR. Although we were pitching Kato-san questions through a translator, based on his insistence that a TNGA-based Corolla was to come “later,” it sounds as though the C-HR will arrive relatively soon. It still isn’t clear whether the C-HR would be sent stateside as a Toyota or as a Scion, but we first reported on a Nissan Juke–fighting crossover from Scion a year ago, so we’re betting on it coming under that brand. Either way, TNGA is just getting started; the company would like to transition as many of its compact-ish-size vehicles onto the architecture within five years, and it would like to apply modular, TNGA-like principles to its entire lineup within 10 years.

Yuccie Pup: Scion Unveils Red C-HR Concept

If the kids are divided, they will never be united.


Apparently, Jimmy Pursey was wrong. According to Scion, the kids want to be divided. Hersham, England, boy Pursey grew up on the other side of the M25 from Woking's Ron Dennis, although the motorway around London came into existence only a year before Pursey founded his punk-rock group, Sham 69. And while Dennis was working on his Project Three operation, predecessor to what we’d ultimately come to know as the modern McLaren concern, Pursey was starting to play shows. By the time Dennis’ Project Four operation merged with McLaren, Sham 69 had broken up, but not before it managed to push “If the Kids Are United” up to number nine on the U.K. charts. One might’ve called Pursey a “young urban creative” or “yucky,” which might’ve been more appropriate given punk rockers’ stinky reputation. Scion likes the term “yuccie,” and they like the yuccies themselves, viewing the city-dwelling post-bohos as the brand's future. And while we imagine Pursey and his mates meandering about the south of England in a busted-up Commer, Toyota’s youth-focused division has a different vision, one informed by the yuccies, not the yuckies. One that says, “Polarizing is OK. Boring is not.” Really, it says so right in the press release. The result is the C-HR, which we saw a year ago in Paris, as a Toyota, and then again this year in Frankfurt. Now it's red and in Los Angeles wearing a Scion badge.



The initials stand for “compact” and “high ride.” The design? Well, it’s still awfully Jukey. But the Nissan Juke is polarizing and some folks really dig it, right? The C-HR, however, might be a case of closing the design barn’s door after the Chrysler PT Cruiser and the Chevy HHR got out. But whatever, the production version will debut next year, and nothing we say is going to stop it. Underneath the showy floating taillights and too-expensive 21-inch wheels, the C-HR is built atop the Toyota New Global Architecture, which allegedly offers improved rigidity and a lower center of gravity (compared to which contemporary high-riding Scion, the FR-S?).



Forgoing any information about powertrains, Scion dives right into talking about aesthetics, claiming the cabin’s design inspiration is a “diamond with sheered sides,” while the lower body is “sensual and instills strong emotions.” Nobody ever called Jimmy Pursey “sensual,” although Sham bassist Dave Tregunna’s collaboration with Stiv Bators, The Lords of the New Church, had its gothy, sensual moments, we suppose. And Bators was a yuccie who was killed by a car in a city. Admittedly, poor Bators was 40 at the time. Can you be a middle-aged yuccie? Pursey is 60 now, which makes him a prime real-world candidate for Scion ownership. And Ron Dennis? Well, Ron Dennis drives whatever the hell Ron Dennis wants. And Ron Dennis weren’t never no yuccie.

Scion C-HR to debut in production form in Detroit

Scion C-HR concept

Scion C-HR to debut in production form in Detroit

A new report indicates the C-HR concepts will finally morph into a production version set to arrive with the Scion badge next month in Detroit.


After two Toyota-badged concepts and the equivalent Scion, the C-HR crossover is just about ready to show its production face and hop onto the growing crossover bandwagon. It will happen several weeks from now at NAIAS in Detroit and will be offered with a hybrid arrangement and also with a turbocharged gasoline engine.


The model will ride on the TNGA that has underpinned the latest Prius and in hybrid guise will have a combined 121 horsepower coming from a 1.8-liter and an electric motor. It will be about 14 hp weaker than the Prius and will send the power to the road through a continuously variable transmission. If you would rather have the regular model, it will allegedly come with a turbocharged 1.2-liter, 3-cylinder motor from the JDM-spec Auris where it’s rated at 114 hp and 136 pound-feet of torque.


Chances Toyota will try and please everyone by offering the C-HR with a standard FWD layout and an optional AWD system.


This US version of the C-HR will be sold as a Scion, but other markets will get the crossover with the Toyota badge. The Japanese brand has already confirmed plans to show its version of the production-ready C-HR at the Geneva Motor Show in March. Sales will likely commence in the second half of the year and the model will compete with the Honda HR-V and the Nissan Juke.

Since SCION is done looks like Toyota is going to just badge this as a Toyota


Toyota previews C-HR concept-inspired crossover


Gallery (1 image) Next

Prev




Toyota has published a teaser shot that previews a subcompact crossover designed to take on the Nissan Juke.


The yet-unnamed crossover will be a heavily toned-down version of the C-HR concept that debuted two years ago at the Paris Auto Show. It's expected to feature a less futuristic-looking design, and a recent spy video confirms the C-HR has predictably grown an extra set of doors in its transition from a concept to a production model.

The soft-roader will be built on the modular Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform. Technical details aren't available yet, but we hear that the lineup will include conventional gasoline-burning models and at least one hybrid variant fitted with tech borrowed from the fourth-generation Prius that was introduced a couple of months ago. Front- and all-wheel drive will be available.

Toyota's next crossover will be presented online in the coming days, and it will make its global debut at the Geneva Auto Show in a little over a week. The U.S.-spec model was poised to become Scion's first-ever crossover, but Toyota has recently announced plans to ax its struggling youth-oriented sub-division before the end of the year. Consequently, the C-HR will be sold here through Toyota dealerships.

The 2017 Toyota C-HR Is Your Woke Boyfriend Of Cars




This is the new 2017 Toyota C-HR. It might look like a tough little SUV, but it’s actually a small, car-based hybrid. Basically, it’s your woke boyfriend.
The thing about the C-HR is that it cares. The thing is the second car we’re seeing on Toyota’s new modular TNGA architecture, which came to America first in the new Prius.

If the C-HR could retweet articles about sea level rise, it would.

The car is also not as big as it looks, and it fits in the same class as the Jeep Renegade, the Honda HR-V, and the Fiat 500L. The C-HR is sensibly sized. It knows it’s part of the traffic problem. It has read books about urban planning. Well, not books, but it read the headline of an article on Vox one time and really wants to talk to you about it.

Look at that hybrid badge. “I know I’m part of the greenhouse gas problem!” The C-HR pleads.
It probably wants to figure out ride-sharing opportunities because it recognizes its privilege.
The C-HR understands. It cares. It will be in showrooms in 2017.

Toyota C-HR coming to the U.S. next spring


Toyota recently unveiled the stylish C-HR crossover at the Geneva Motor Show and the company has officially announced plans to offer the model in the United States.
Set to go on sale in the spring of 2017, the 2018 C-HR is being billed as the perfect vehicle for “yuccies" who are described as the "young urban creatives" who helped to inspire the model's design.
Since the production model won't arrive for another year, Toyota will showcase the C-HR concept at the New York Auto Show. It's a slightly odd decision but the company confirmed plans to introduce the production model later this year.
Toyota is keeping specifications under wraps but the Euro-spec model rides on the company's new TNGA platform and can be equipped with three different engines. The entry-level variant has a turbocharged 1.2-liter engine that produces 115 horsepower and can be connected to either a six-speed manual or a continuously variable transmission. The model can also be equipped with a naturally-aspirated 2.0-liter engine and a hybridized 1.8-liter engine that develops 122 hp.
It remains unclear which engines will be offered in the United States but full details will be released later this year.

2018 Toyota C-HR spied in U.S. guise


Our spies have caught on camera an undisguised prototype of the 2018 Toyota C-HR US Spec.

Toyota introduced the production-ready C-HR in European specification last month at the Geneva Motor Show. Now, the subcompact crossover is getting ready for its trip to United States where it will be sold starting with next spring as a 2018 model year. The U.S.-bound C-HR was supposed to wear the Scion badge, but since Toyota is saying “scionara” to its youth-oriented brand, the tiny high-riding model will wear the logo with the three overlapping ellipses.
While the exterior and interior design will remain essentially the same, that won’t be the case with the engine. Europeans get to pick from a turbocharged 1.2-liter with 115 horsepower (85 kilowatts) and a hybridized, 122-hp 1.8-liter. Moreover, in select countries (excluding UK), Toyota will sell the C-HR with a naturally-aspirated 2.0-liter.
As for the U.S. model, some are saying only a naturally-aspirated 2.0-liter will be available and it will be exclusively hooked up to a continuously variable transmission. As standard, power will be channeled to the front axle, but those willing to pay more will be able to opt for an all-wheel-drive arrangement.
The Euro-spec C-HR is being assembled at Toyota’s factory in Turkey, but it’s not known at this point whether this facility will also be in charge of putting together the North American variant.
We'll have all the details about Toyota's answer to the Honda HR-V in United States in the following months.

REVEALED: Toyota Moving Upscale With New C-HR Crossover Interior





Get your first look at the interior of the Toyota C-HR, ahead of the car’s official launch later this year.




The official pictures show the final design of the crossover’s interior, which features a blue accent line circling the cabin.
Pictures also show a more upmarket appearance to the C-HR’s interior than its current Toyota stablemates, with a brown leather-trimmed dashboard sitting above a cockpit of glossy materials and metallic trim.

The Toyota C-HR compact crossover will be a hybrid

At least in Japan, but expect the powertrain to come to America



Toyota has been cooking a compact crossover for a while now. The vehicle was supposed to be Scion's saving grace, at least before Toyota saw fit to smother Scion with a soft pillow. We saw leaked images of the C-HR concept more than two years ago. A trickle of concept vehicles made their rounds at auto shows before the full production version debuted in Geneva this year. We were told about the hybrid powertrain back then, but without any details. Now, Toyota has released the compact C-HR's Japanese market specs.

The sharp looking crossover lost very little in the way of styling when moving from concept to reality. The same can be true of its hybrid powertrain, at least in Japan. The C-HR will come in four trims with two types of power. Base models will feature a small, 1.2-liter turbocharged that debuted last year in the Toyota Auris. The hybrid version uses a 1.8-liter four cylinder, most likely the same engine that's in the Prius.

The Auris is sold in the US as the Toyota Corolla iM, though without the 1.2-liter turbo. Look for a non-hybrid 1.8 liter four-cylinder and a CVT when the car comes to the US. All Japanese models come with Toyota Safety Sense P collision mitigation equipment that includes pedestrian detection, radar cruise control, lane departure warnings, and automatic high beams. This is the same system currently found on the 2017 RAV4 crossover, so it's likely we'll see that carry over to US models of the CH-R.

Look for more details on the US-spec model this fall.

  • Toyota to debut C-HR compact crossover in LA


Toyota to debut C-HR compact crossover in LA

Toyota has announced that it will unveil the U.S.-version of its all-new C-HR compact crossover at the upcoming Los Angeles auto show.


As you might recall, the Toyota C-HR made its global debut earlier this year at the Geneva Motor Show. However, that unveiling was accompanied by few technical details. Toyota is expected to divulge more information in LA.

What we do know is that the C-HR will ride on Toyota's modular Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform and offer both front- and all-wheel drive configurations. The European model will use a multi-link rear suspension, but it remains to be seen if that sportier (and more expensive) setup will make its way across the pond.

Power could be provided by a 1.2L turbocharged engine currently used by the Toyota Auris. A hybrid variant is also said to be in the works.

Billed as a "five-door coupe," the C-HR promises to be a departure from Toyota's more traditional SUV offerings. Given that it was originally designed as a Scion, it should come as no surprised that Toyota is aiming the C-HR directly at the youth market.

Toyota will unveil the C-HR on November 17.
