Toyota has always been ahead of the curve when it comes to innovating and developing new technologies for consumers and to reduce environmental impact. This time around, Toyota is entering a market segment later than anticipated, but rest assured that the Japanese automaker still aims to have a great impact in this new division.
The C-HR is Toyota’s answer to the growing demand in the tightly contested subcompact SUV market. Making its debut at the Geneva Motor Show, the C-HR adopts an edgier design for the organization. It has been two years since the concept was first teased in the Paris Motor Show in 2014 and thankfully, this production model has not changed drastically.
With its distinct style lines and bold front and rear fascia, the C-HR looks to take on competitors such as the Nissan Juke, Mazda CX-3 and Honda HR-V. With its technology derived from the Toyota Prius, this model will be made available with a 1.8-litre hybrid engine that can pump out 120 horsepower with the option of a 1.2-litre turbo engine that outputs 133 ponies as well.
For us in Markham, we will have to wait until early 2017 to see the C-HR make its way to Highway 7, McCowan Road and beyond.
