Geneva Motor Show: Toyota reveals compact crossover


Toyota has unveiled its C-HR compact crossover.

Developed from concept cars displayed at Paris in 2014 and Frankfurt in 2015, the new car will be powered by a 1.8-litre hybrid and is set to achieve CO2 emissions of less than 90g/km.

This new hybrid powertrain is more efficient and lighter, and offers sharper performance than previous hybrid systems. 

Alternatively, the Toyota C-HR is available with the new 115hp 1.2-itre turbo engine, (first shown in the Auris).

This will have a choice of six-speed manual gearbox or a CVT automatic transmission. The car will be available in two or four-wheel drive.

The lamp clusters incorporate full LED lighting with light guides and sequential turn signals.

The model will be built in Turkey, with hybrid engines made in Wales. A release date and pricing has not yet been confirmed.

The C-HR is based on the Toyota New Global Architecture platform.
