Toyota Shows C-HR Hybrid Crossover Ahead of Paris Premiere
The first teaser image of the Toyota's new C-HR Concept was unveiled in the beginning of the week. Now the company is releasing two pictures of the future vehicle revealing its front and back and leaving only the technical details and specifications in secret. The car will debut at the Paris motor show that starts on 2nd of October. It is a vision for a hybrid-powered compact crossover that displays Toyota's new design language and also gives clue of what kind of vehicle the Japanese brand would like to bring to market.
C-HR Concept has undoubtedly an expressive design to show. The most striking elements of the new design approach is the diamond styling theme. Beneath the flowing cabin profile, the lower bodywork has been sculpted to create faceted surfaces, which resembles a gemstone. At the fronts are visible Toyota's current design cues as well as - the introduction of themes which signal a future direction for Toyota vehicles.
Looked at its sides, vehicle's facetted treatment of the lower body, the muscular wheel arches and angular rear shoulders are juxtaposed with an exceptionally sleek cabin profile. At last, at the back we see an aero-inspired floating rear lamp clusters which adds emphasis to C-HR's broad-shouldered look.
The compact crossover will go into production in 2017 in a two- and four-wheel-drive version as well as featuring a hybrid powertrain, petrol and diesel engines. The unveiling of the C-HR Concept will happen at Toyota's stand at the Paris motor show on 2nd of October.
