[Carscoops] 2017 Toyota C-HR: Here It Is In All Its Glory



Less than two years after Toyota released their C-HR Concept that was followed up by an updated version last September, the Nissan Juke-rival has materialized into a production model that will be officially revealed in Geneva.

The first official photos of the new 2017 Toyota C-HR that surfaced online show that the Japanese carmaker tried to stay as close as realistically possible to the edgy concept without creating a claustrophobic vehicle for the passengers or limiting its practicality and usability.

It is based on Toyota’s new global architecture (TNGA) that’s also found under the latest Prius, and like the latter, it will feature a full hybrid petrol-electric powertrain, the technical details of which haven’t been released yet.

Toyota’s dramatic looking C-HR will join a growing pack of subcompact crossovers, including the Fiat 500X, Jeep Renegade, Mazda CX-3, Nissan Juke, Honda HR-V and Chevrolet Trax, and will be sold worldwide. It was initially planned to be offered as a Scion in North America, but after the company’s decision to kill the youth-orientated brand, it will be marketed as a Toyota, with sales to start in 2017.

That looks so much like a Nissan Juke that it's just as ugly. I really thought that the concept car they had before was supposed to be a practical joke.

Juke sized, but certainly doesn't look like a Juke. I don't see it. C-HR is much more stylish.

It may be categorized as a "crossover," whatever that means today, but it lacks the "utility" characteristic and it seems to be more a hatchback than a crossover in the more traditional sense of the term.


As I posted on another thread about the C-HR, if Toyota were to use some imagination and offer a version with the 3.5 L V6 engine, a good manual/auto trans., and sport suspension this would be quite a road rocket.
