2016 Paris Motor Show: Mean Looking Toyota C-HR Crossover Debuts

Written By:

Toyota has unveiled the crossover SUV C-HR at the 2016 Paris Motor Show. The Japanese company has dropped the diesel engines from the C-HR. The Toyota C-HR looks adventurous with the bearing of coupe look.

The C-HR stands for Coupe High-Rider will battle against a wide range of crossover rivals. Toyota is expected to power the C-HR with a 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol and the 1.8-litre hybrid system from the Prius which combines the mechanical architecture with the C-HR.

With the above two powertrains, Toyota has ditched the diesel engine for the C-HR revealing its intention not to offer the diesel version of the car at least for the next six to 12 months. The Toyota C-HR is sharp and the stance is direct and imposing.

On the inside, the Toyota C-HR features an 8-inch infotainment system and the centre console is slightly angled towards the driver. As for the features, Toyota has not revealed the final outcome; however, as all cars from Toyota comes with ‘Safety Sense' package, we can expect the same in the C-HR.

The package includes lane-departure warning system with steering control, road-sign recognition, adaptive cruise control and a pre-collision warning system with the pedestrian warning. The top of the range model will come with heated front seats and special upholstery, a self-parking system and keyless entry along with nine-speaker JBL audio system.

On the engine specifications front, the petrol unit is a 1.2-litre turbocharged with 1140bhp, while the hybrid unit is a 1.8-litre petrol mill and electric motor combination and the power is sent to the front wheels.
