Toyota C-HR Concept gets closer to production

The evolved version of the C-HR Concept anticipates a production model set to be launched by Toyota in 2016.


The Toyota C-HR Concept was created to explore new directions for compact crossovers in an increasingly homogenous marketplace, and made its first appearance at the 2014 Paris Motor Show as a design study.

The updated concept revealed at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show represents a step toward commercialization: the main change is the new five-door layout in place of the three-door body style, while the two-tone blue-black roof color scheme has been replaced by a uniform glossy black color scheme.

Building on two key elements of Toyota’s design language – Keen Look and Under Priority – the design features a diamond-inspired styling, with a surface treatment characterized by sculpted and chamfered details that represent the facetted surfaces of a precision-cut gemstone.

The Toyota C-HR Concept is based on the the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA), an integrated development program for vehicle platforms and powertrain components.

TNGA will enable Toyota to create vehicles with improved chassis rigidity, handling stability, and comfort.

Toyota aims to give the concept an engine with thermal efficiency of over 40 percent, as well as further improving fuel efficiency by making the hybrid system―including the motor and battery―smaller and more lightweight.

Toyota is planning to show a production-ready model at the Geneva International Motor Show in March 2016.
