Default Toyota C-HR Crossover Revealed with Prius Power

Toyota’s new C-HR crossover has been fully revealed at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.

The C-HR is based on the new TNGA modular platform which was introduced with the new Prius. Like that car, the C-HR will be available with the latest 1.8 hybrid system that makes 122 horsepower and produces 90 g/km of CO2. For those who aren’t interested in the hybrid, a 1.2-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 155 hp will also be available, mated to either a six-speed manual or a CVT.

Toyota also says a larger 2.0-liter engine will also be available in select markets, though they did not elaborate on which those would be. The U.S. tends to always get the largest engine options, so it wouldn’t be surprising if the small 1.2-liter stays in Europe while the 2.0-liter comes to the U.S. This bigger option is mated exclusively to a CVT.

To go along with its sporty coupe style, Toyota claims that the C-HR’s low center of gravity and multi-link rear suspension will make the crossover fun to drive. It was developed on European roads, as the car’s chief engineer wanted to replicate the driving style of Europeans, which he says is much less stop and go then other places in the world.

Toyota’s safety sense system will be offered with the C-HR, which includes a pre-collision system, lane departure warning, road sign assist, automatic headlights, pedestrian detection and adaptive cruise control.

The crossover will be built at Toyota Motor Manufacturing Turkey, the first time that a hybrid vehiclehas been built in that country.
