The Toyota C-HR joins the car range as the first mid-sized crossover hybrid from the manufacturer in the UK.
C-HR stands for 'Coupé High-Rider', bringing the body styling and comfortable cabin layout together. It stands on the same platform as the 2016 edition of the Prius.
Coupé elements are accented with more chunky shapes across the C-HR. The muscular sculpting is subtle, hinting at the vehicle's potential and substantially boosting the aerodynamics. Sharp headlights sweep back towards the doors, and the wide wheel arches add to its domineering visual presence.
A raised seating position gives front seat passengers a wider view of their surroundings. Driver displays are right behind the steering wheel, making them easier to read. Five can fit into the cabin, settling into supportive seats with premium upholstery and finishes.
Toyota's hybrid system will power the crossover, combining a 1.8-litre engine with an efficient electric motor. The hybrid should slash emissions to only 90g/km of CO2, which would easily be the lowest figure in the model's segment. UK customers also have the option of traditional petrol power via a 1.2-litre engine.
The C-HR will work just as hard on and off the road. To demonstrate the vehicle's potential, Toyota is taking a racing version of the C-HR to the world-famous Nürburgring circuit.
