Toyota C-HR 2017 is Ready

All new toyota CHR 2017

Toyota may be late to the subcompact crossover game, but it's off the bench and looks like it's about to score. Following the success of the Toyota C-HR concept car at Frankfurt motorshow last year, Toyota are proud to unveil their cutting edge new model: the Coupé High-Rider. Its ingredients – the coupé profile, muscular styling and elevated cabin position – combine to create a completely new breed of car.

In fact, this little guy was originally supposed to be sold as a Scion, which may explain its more youthful look. Whatever its origins, I'm just glad it's finally made it into production.

We first caught a glimpse of the C-HR concept at the Paris Motor Show in 2014, and this production vehicle hasn't changed much. It looks to be a slightly less wacky looking Nissan Juke, with aggressive style lines, distinctive front and rear fenders, and an inward boomerang bend to the tail lights.

Based on the same global platform that underpins the latest generation Prius, the C-HR will be available in Europe as a 1.8-liter hybrid, putting out 120 horsepower, or a 1.2-liter turbo, knocking out 133 horses. Those folks opting for the turbo will get the choice of a six-speed manual gearbox or Toyota's continuously variable transmission.

The US should get the C-HR in the spring of 2017. Alas we'll more than likely get a 2.0-liter engine with the CVT and no option for a manual.

No word on pricing yet, but it would make sense for this new model to slot in somewhere near the RAV4, which starts at just over $24,000.
