Projected Toyota C-HR U.S. Release Date and Design
Making its official debut at the Geneva Motor Show this past week, the Toyota C-HR compact crossover has gone from concept to production and is ready to hit showroom floors in the near future. Built on Toyota New Global Architecture, the Toyota C-HR promises to deliver thrilling driving dynamics and a flashy, new-age style and will be released in European markets in spring of 2017. Poised to join the 2016 Toyota RAV4 as a premium class leader, we can’t wait to get behind the wheel of the Toyota C-HR. Take a closer look at the projected Toyota C-HR U.S. release date and design here at White River Toyota.
Toyota C-HR Crossover Design and Specs
Featuring a distinct style, the Toyota C-HR combines the flair and energetic performance of a coupe with the utility and space of a compact crossover. Destined to be a direct rival to the Nissan Juke and the Honda HR-V, Toyota engineers have crafted the Toyota C-HR with class-leading driving dynamics, steering and handling as the ultimate goal. Look for the Toyota C-HR to arrive in the United States shortly following the European release date in the spring of 2017.
At the front end, the Toyota C-HR design possesses a narrow upper grille that is complemented by a bold trapezoidal lower grille. These style elements are amplified even further by sleek headlights that wrap around the front end of the new Toyota crossover. New and innovative headlight designs incorporate a full array of LED lighting systems that include headlights and turn signals.
The new-age style of the Toyota C-HR continues with flared wheel arches, bold lines and pronounced fenders that lend themselves to a muscular design. This design is made even more powerful by a wide stance that is built on a 171.1-inch long platform, more than 8.7 inches longer than the Nissan Juke. Bold lines draw the eye to a dynamic back end that features a sloping rear window and C-shaped rear lighting clusters that stand out from the frame.
In the European market, the Toyota C-HR is expected to employ a 122-horsepower hybrid powertrain or a 115-horsepower turbocharged 1.2 liter four-cylinder engine. These powertrains will be paired with either a six-speed manual or continuously variable transmission. When the Toyota C-HR arrives in the United States in 2017, it is expected to feature a naturally-aspirated 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine paired with a continuously variable transmission, though details have not yet been released. Both editions are expected to offer all-wheel drive.
If you think the Toyota C-HR compact crossover fits your needs and lifestyle, you can expect to see it in the first half of 2017. We can’t wait for the Toyota C-HR to join the White River Toyota inventory and give you just one more high-quality, class-leading Toyota vehicle to choose from. Building on the groundwork that the 2016 Toyota RAV4 and dynamic 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid have laid, this new edition promises big things and the projected Toyota C-HR U.S. release date and design have brought us one step closer to its arrival.
