Toyota unveils C-HR compact crossover

4 Toyota C-HR

Toyota has unveiled its C-HR compact crossover, based on the Toyota New Global Architecture platform.

Revealed at the Geneva motor show, the car was developed from concept cars displayed at Paris in 2014 and Frankfurt in 2015. 

The new car will be powered by a 1.8-litre hybrid and is set to achieve CO2 emissions of less than 90g/km.

This new hybrid powertrain is more efficient and lighter, and offers sharper performance than previous hybrid systems. 

Alternatively, the Toyota C-HR is available with the new 115hp 1.2-itre turbo engine, (first shown in the Auris). This will have a choice of 6-speed manual gearbox or a CVT automatic transmission. The car will be available in 2- or 4-wheel drive.

The lamp clusters incorporate full LED lighting with light guides and sequential turn signals.

The model will be built in Turkey, with hybrid engines made in Wales. A release date and pricing has not yet been confirmed.
