Toyota C-HR Concept Green Lit For Production, Retains Striking Design

Gerard August 12, 2015 09:02

During the Paris Motor Show in September last year, Toyota brought out a fresh and funky looking concept called the C-HR, which has received the green light for production. And the best part is, the Japanese car maker will attempt to retain the radical design of the concept.

The new from Motoring Australia says following the concept’s introduction during the show, prospective customers were surveyed if they would buy a crossover SUV as conspicuous in design as the C-HR over the more conventional offerings now. Favourable results lead to Toyota approving the design for production.

However, the size of the C-HR concept means that it will not go up against the likes of the Ford EcoSport, Honda HR-V, and Mazda CX-3. Instead, this larger C-segment crossover looks to the Nissan Qashqai and Juke, and Renault Kadjar as segment competitiors.

Current details about Toyota’s upcoming crossover include the adoption of the TNGA platform which is also used in the next-generation Toyota Prius. A hybrid powertrain is said to provide the propulsion.

About Gerard

My first impressions of a dream car should be a ridiculous top speed with physics defying cornering capabilities, namely the Ferraris, Paganis and what not. Deep down, I just want something that makes you feel special when you drive it, expensive or not.
