A ot the 2014 Paris Motor Show, that was allowed to happen Toyota C-HR Concept presented for the first time. The IAA is now the evolutionary stage of the crossover model, which has moved closer to the final series model. The main features of the five-door model are the unusual design language based on a diamond, the full hybrid drive and the completely new platform architecture TNGA, which also carries the new Prius.
Toyota C-HR will be available at the end of 2016
The design of the C-HR is based on strongly modeled wheel arches, a beefy high front with slit-shaped headlights and a strongly contoured apron. The flanks have a striking sheet metal edge and hide the rear doors. In the rear doors, an upswing in the parapet line limits the window area to a minimum and hides the high door handle. The stern is steeply chopped off with a high rump. Above it lies an extremely flat rear window, which is spanned by a roof extension. The beefy rear apron has a diffuser element and boomerang-shaped rear fog lights that correspond to the likewise boomerang-shaped taillights. The appearance is rounded off by 21-inch alloy wheels. Overall, the design looks very idiosyncratic.
The drive of the Toyota C-HR seems to be from the new Prius . This in turn is based on a further developed drive from the old Prius. CloserThe Japanese have not yet provided any information on this.
Either way, the production decision for the C-HR crossover model has already been made. At the end of 2016, it will hit the crossover mid-range segment.
