Japanese car maker, Toyota will officially debut the C-HR SUV at the upcoming 2016 Geneva Auto Show. But before the concept is revealed at the motor show, the spied images of the Toyotaâ€™s crossover have surfaced online. The upcoming entry level SUV will be based on Toyotaâ€™s New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform.
The near-production model shares a strong resemblance with the original C-HR concept, first showcased at the 2014 Paris Motor Show. The C-HR is 4,350 mm in length, 1,850 mm in width and 1,500 mm in height. It has a wheelbase of 2,640 mm. These numbers are similar to that of the Hyundai Creta and Renault Duster, dropping a hint of its possible launch in India in future.
The C-HR gets a crossover like styling with sleek wrap around headlights. The large central air dam gets a matte finish. The flared wheel arches with a contrasting coupe like roof line ending as a spoiler gives the C-HR an impressive side profile. The rear too gets stylish boomerang shaped tail lights. The overall design and lines of the C-HR are similar to that of the Nissan Juke.
Since the upcoming SUV is based on the same TNGA platform as the Toyota Prius, there will be a hybrid along with conventional engine options. Toyota has also made a performance version of the C-HR. The sporty crossover will race at the 44th 24 Hours of Nurburgring endurance in May this year.
