Default Toyota C-HR Concept

Toyota has revealed its new C-HR concept this week, ahead of an unveiling at next month’s Paris Motor Show.

Offering what could be a first look at an anticipated entrant in the compact SUV market, the C-HR represents a bold shift in styling for the world’s number-one carmaker.

Perhaps inspired by the Nissan Juke’s huge success in Europe, the C-HR concept introduces a look focused more on style than the usual SUV practicality.

Tying together muscular curves and sharp angular surfaces, the C-HR looks as much like a jacked-up coupe than it does any sort of SUV.


Details for the new concept have yet to be released, although Toyota promises “a bold new design language with an agile, engaging driving experience and a Hybrid powertrain”.

It remains to be seen what sort of focus that powertrain will deliver - performance or efficiency - but with those powerful proportions up-top, we could see an evolution of the Yaris Hybrid-R’s 224kW and 420Nm system.

If the C-HR is eventually transformed into a production model, it will take on the funky Juke, along with the more conventional Holden Trax, Ford’s EcoSport, and the Peugeot 2008.

That segment will expand even further in 2015, with Renault’s incoming Captur and the new Honda HR-V both due.

Above: the C-HR's natural rival, the Nissan Juke.
Later on, we’ll see Suzuki’s new Vitara, the SsangYong ‘X100’, Fiat's 500X and its Jeep Renegade platform mate.

Mazda is reportedly finalising a new CX-3 model to enter below the CX-5, and Volkswagen may also be planning a sub-Tiguan model.

Reports also suggest that Hyundai and Kia are planning new compact SUV models for the global market (although the ix25 has so far been ruled out for Australia).

Watch for more details on Toyota's new compact SUV concept to surface in the coming weeks.

Default Hot Toyota C-HR under consideration

Quote:
Hot Toyota C-HR under consideration





A performance version of the recently revealed Toyota C-HR crossover is under consideration.

The new model, which has been mooted by C-HR lead engineer Hiro Koba, would act as a rival to the likes of the Nissan Juke Nismo and allow Toyota to compete in the emerging and profitable market for hot crossovers.

Speaking to Autocar, Koba said a performance C-HR wasn’t “concretely” in Toyota’s plans but “I am pushing to make such a car. I need to get approval”.

Toyota senior manager Rembert Serrus added: “The car lends itself to it. It would be possible, but it depends on how much we have to change. A sports version could be a minor change or it could be a new project. A sports version would make a lot of sense.”

Koba has already piloted a racing version of the C-HR and it’s known that the car will compete at the Nürburgring 24 Hours endurance event next month. Autocar understands that public reaction to that car will heavily inform the business case for producing a performance version of the road-going C-HR.

The racing C-HR is powered by a turbocharged 1.5-litre petrol engine with around 178bhp. A similar engine could well be used in the road car, and Koba has hinted he’d like to see more powerful variants of the C-HR launched. Some of the racing car’s less obtrusive aerodynamic bodywork could also be carried over.

It’s highly likely any performance version of the C-HR would also include uprated brakes and suspension, as well as heavier steering and a modified interior.

Toyota’s new crossover, which sits below the RAV4 in the Japanese car maker’s line-up, will be launched in the UK this December. It will be offered with a choice of two powertrains: a 1.2-litre petrol engine and a hybrid linking a 1.8-litre petrol engine with an electric motor.

Although the hybrid version of the C-HR is expected to take the majority of sales in the UK, there is an obvious gap at the top of the range where a performance-biased C-HR could sit. Given the development time needed to produce that model, though, it would be unlikely to appear in showrooms until at least 2018.

Actually I do not hate it. It has a thread of funky to it.

I mean for a small CUV it is not ugly.

It reminds me of the HRV in a way, and I think that is at least moderately cool.

No, it's a BMW X1 look a like. Lexus has something similar in concept form but smaller and it's pretty obvious the Juke is just the closest competitor with an overbite that isn't a luxury competitor.

Or overhang.

Can anyone say CLOSED OFF PILLAR? Because that C is one hell of a coverup.

There's a lot of Nissan design cues in there.

The sheetmetal looks great. Those creases would have only been found on show cars 10 years ago. Great stuff.

The black roof and bottom makes the whole car look long, low and sporty, even though it's anything but.

That interior looks like an artist's sculpture named "Buyer's Remorse".

I really want to like it - I'm not sure why. Maybe because it does have some promising elements, but then:

Double yep.

And the front fascia is just a mess.

This reminds me of the Venza, where I just couldn't get into the looks.

Also fix.

I'm generally a fan of ultra-futuristic looking cars. I found the new civic to be a step in that direction and it's not bad, with the caveat that it's a mini crosstour in profile, which are the ugliest, worst category of crossover to date IMO. The BMW gheyness and anyone else that makes cars into fat-assed low roof minivan/wagon bastards all need to burn.

This is kinda right in the middle of one of those and the next worst thing: an actual CUV. Can we stop hybridizing things and making offspring? What happened to the days vehicles fit into one definitive category?

The first concept pic was nice looking. But it's too blocky and sits too high.
