Toyota C-HR prototype

Photo Feature: New Toyota C-HR hybrid with 1.8L engine

We’ve managed to get 46 images of the new C-HR compact SUV prototype. The C-HR was first shown at the Paris Motor Show in 2014. At the time, it was a concept model. It then went on to appear at numerous auto shows all over the world and, in particular, Europe.

Toyota designed the C-HR using the two concepts of “form” and “drive.” The body was designed to give a sense of speed but also with the tough underbody of an SUV. It was designed with special attention to the particulars of quality, form, color, and other key elements.

The concept for its driving performance was, “Our own concept of driving.” Taking even further the work of TNGA, which created the new Prius, it has a low center of gravity and high body rigidity. Through tests on various road conditions in different European countries and driving on circuits both inside and outside Japan, Toyota has managed to create a new model with excellent handling and a comfortable drive.

These pictures show the C-HR hybrid model. It is equipped with a 1.8L engine and motor and is White Pearl Crystal Shine (maker option).
