With the compact SUV market heating up, it comes as no surprise that companies like Toyota working hard introducing its new C-HR to various markets.
The latest news comes from CarNewsChina, which mentioned that the all-new 2017 Toyota C-HR will be introduced in China but with a twist.
In China, Toyota has FAW-Toyota and Guangzhou-Toyota as their local partners. This is because China is the largest car market.
The first partner, FAW-Toyota, will showcase its version of the Toyota C-HR at the 2017 Shanghai Auto Show in April, with a market launch slated to happen in Q3 2017. FAW’s take on the C-HR will remain largely identical to the international C-HR, including the nameplate and 1.2-litre turbocharged engine.
Toyota’s second partner, Guangzhou-Toyota could debut its own version in late November, with a revised design and name. Power is expected to come from the same 1.2-litre turbocharged engine.
Surprised? Well, Honda also has two partners in China. One is Guangzhou-Honda and the other is Dongfeng-Honda. The Honda HR-V also comes as two versions in China, the first being the Honda XR-V by Dongfeng-Honda and as the Honda Vezel by Guangzhou-Honda.
