Production to Start on Toyota C-HR Crossover

The season of auto and motor shows goes on for a quite a while. The majority of it happens before the New Year. Though some, like the 2016 Geneva Motor Show have yet to happen. This makes it an interesting time of the year for car companies who’ve shown prototypes and concepts at the earlier motor shows. They now have the opportunity to show us something new and updated. For Toyota automakers, it’s the production version of the C-HR crossover.

We first saw the C-HR crossover concept at the 2015 L.A. Auto Show. The vehicle is a new direction for Toyota, and perhaps the first shift into a whole new look. The model will feature a new-generation hybrid powertrain. While the vehicle is first set to be released in Europe, we believe that a U.S. version will most definitely follow.  

 

The look of this crossover is subjectively beautiful. But it doesn’t really look like a Toyota vehicle. In fact, it doesn’t really look like it was made by any car company on earth. Unlike the 2016 Toyota Prius which is now edgy, and the 2016 Toyota Camry, which is bold yet still looks like a sedan, the CUV doesn’t really look like something we’ve seen before.

 

The model that was shown in L.A. had sported the Scion badge, as it was originally to be a Scion in the U.S. However, with Scion no longer around, it will get the full Toyota treatment. The vehicle looks like something that you might see on another planet. Where they have cars, but they’re not quite the same as ours. The vehicle is built on the new Toyota Global Architecture system, the same as the Prius, and features a hybrid powertrain.
