Toyota thinks that the 600 hp C-HR could beat the Honda Civic Type R’s Nurburgring record

Last April, the new Honda Civic Type R made a new record for the current front wheel drive, by going around the Nurburgring and finishing a lap with a time of 7 minutes 43.80 seconds. But today, Toyota thinks that they have what it takes to beat the Honda Civic Type R’s record, even without a true hot hatchback in their lineup. Rather, it is the C-HR that recently made its debut at the 2017 SEMA Show, with 600 horsepower (447 kilowatts) which they think could make a new record.

They say that if the head of the tuning company behind Toyota’s R-Tuned C-HR, Dan Gardner were to decide, the C-HR would already be at the track. In fact, the Japanese automaker believes that it is the “world’s quickest SUV”, and we’re not doubting them. True enough, it has been proven to be faster than the Lamborghini Aventador, the Porsche 911 GT3 and many other supercars as it only took 1 minute 25.22 seconds to go around the Willow Springs Raceway.

Gardner said to Autocar that this model was actually built for SEMA, and so far, the automaker has announced no plans for it. He also described it to be the real deal, and that it is his dream to take the super-SUV to the Nordschleife. And as mentioned earlier, he is confident that it is capable of setting the front-wheel-drive record.

Toyota gives hints of hybrid C-HR, new Land Cruiser ahead of 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show

It is already September and we are all excited about the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, more so because automakers have been revealing previews and teasers (online) of models and concepts that will make their debut at the auto show. Today, it is Toyota that teases us with two new crossovers: the Hybrid C-HR Concept and the new Land Cruiser.

The C-HR Hy-Power Concept is a representation of possible additions for its compact crossover’s engine range. Toyota is being a tease, only providing few details about the vehicle, and that is the crossover’s license plate and lower fascia. Having said that, it makes us think that the model has been given a change in terms of design. And during a press release, the company’s spokesperson did say that the people behind Toyota’s European Design Center will give the C-HR a little bit of facelift to emphasize its emotional and powerful look, while hinting that they will be expanding the company’s hybrid powertrain line. That is all we got from the Hybrid C-HR Concept, and that’s sad because there’s still so much we want to know.

As mentioned earlier, the Japanese automaker also gave us a preview of the new Land Cruiser before it makes its debut in Frankfurt. Though they still kept their mouths sealed, they couldn’t help but share some details regarding the range-topping SUV. One thing we are certain about is that it will still be riding on a body-on-frame chassis.

European customers can now get their Toyota C-HR and GT86 in matte finishes

If you are a fan of matte-finished cars, you are going to love these new Toyotas. For years now, tuning companies have offered the matte look to their clients - and you would see the most common cars, to the rarest ones with this finish. This trend began when BMW offered the Frozen Black M3 to its customers back in 2013. Many other automakers then followed, and now, Toyota is on it too.

As you could see in the photos, the new C-HR and GT86 sports car both got their own matte finishes. Toyota Europe now offers the “Style Selection” option for the C-HR where customers could choose from four exclusive shades including: Metalstream Gray Metallic, Titanium Blue Metallic, Nova White Metallic, and Marlingrau Metallic. For an extra $2,122 (€1,850), customers can get these shades with two unique matte finishes.

Another option customers could add on top of the package would be contrasting onyx black lacquered A and C pillars, side mirrors, roof, and rear spoiler. All these for an extra $160 (€140).

2017 Euro NCAP crash tests: Toyota C-HR, Audi Q5 and Land Rover Discovery SUVs earn five stars

We all want to know how safe our vehicles are on the road. Of course, carmakers do brag about the safety levels of their offerings, but it’s really up to unbiased assessment agencies to tell us the real deal. In Europe, the safety levels of new cars are tested by European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP). In fact, Euro NCAP just completed its latest round of safety tests, and the results were quite mixed.

For the latest round of testing, six vehicles underwent Euro NCAP’s stringent process: Audi Q5, Citroen C3, Fiat 500, Ford Ka+, Land Rover Discovery and Toyota C-HR. The results of the tests should make the people at Audi, Land Rover and Toyota leap for joy while leave those at Fiat and Ford scratching their heads. Euro NCAP’s overall safety rating is based on assessment in four important areas: Adult protection; Child protection; Pedestrian protection; and Safety Assist technologies. Vehicles are rated overall from one to five stars. The more stars a vehicle has, the safer it is.

According to Euro-NCAP, both the new Audi Q5 luxury SUV and Toyota C-HR subcompact crossover were able to earn five-star ratings from the assessment program, thanks to their good all-round performance. A five-star rating means these vehicles offer overall good performance in crash protection and are well-equipped with robust crash avoidance technology. In particular, the Toyota C-HR scored 95 percent for Adult protection; 77 percent for Child protection; 76 percent for Pedestrian protection; and 78 percent for Safety Assist technologies. The new Audi Q5, meanwhile, earned 93 percent for Adult protection; 86 percent for Child protection; 73 percent for Pedestrian protection; and 58 percent for Safety Assist technologies.

You can’t accuse Toyota of being boring. This is particularly true when it unveiled its new Toyota C-HR at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. Its design was both innovative and stunning, and was a definitive cross between a coupe and a SUV. Well, that is what its name really means, as C-HR stands for Coupe-High Rider.

Barely a month after commencing sales of the new Toyota C-HR in Japan, the carmaker is showcasing a pair of new C-HR compact crossovers at the 2017 Tokyo Auto Salon, both dressed by Toyota’s in-house performance and racing tuner, Toyota Racing Development or simply known as TRD. To note, this was not the first time that an in-house tuner at Toyota gave the C-HR a new perspective. If you could remember, Modellista, Toyota’s design division also unveiled new body kits for the new Toyota C-HR crossover -- the “Elegant Ice Style” and “Boost Impulse Style” packages. These packages bring out the elegant and chic character of the new Toyota C-HR.

Of course, TRD won’t be silent regarding Toyota’s latest creation. Just like Modellista, TRD is also offering two styling kits for the C-HR, both aimed at making the crossover look more aggressive and dynamic on the road. These two distinct styling kits -- the “Extreme Style” and “Aggressive Style” design packages – don’t touch the power setup for the new Toyota C-HR. What all these body kits accomplished was to make the new C-HR look more menacing, although the compact crossover already sports an aggressive appearance.

Shortly after launching the latest Toyota crossover, the brand’s in house tuners have also come out with a range of custom upgrades. One of them is Modellista, Toyota’s design division, which offers new body kits for the new C-HR. The distinctively shaped body comes with its “Elegant Ice Style” and “Boost Impulse Style” packages.

All things considered, Modellista has kept the new Toyota C-HR’s drivetrain as with its usual design protocol. In that case, the C-HR is packed with the same 85kW over 185 Nm, 1.2-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine.

In line with this, Toyota TRD has also released its own tuning package. The TRD offers two distinct styling kits, which includes the “Extreme Style” and “Aggressive Style” design upgrades. The new C-HR styling kits are currently available in Japan.

The new Toyota C-HR has been unmasked at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, providing a fresh definition of what a crossover should be in terms of design, powertrain and dynamics. Underpinned by a platform based on the flexible TNGA (Toyota New Global Architecture), the new C-HR is the result of Akio Toyoda's resolve to allow greater design freedom and determination to promote engineering creativity.

Thus, Toyota was able to come up with a mid-sized crossover that stays true to the general features of the concept-cars that the carmaker unveiled at the Paris Motor Show in 2014 and at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2015.

In fact, the C-HR features coupe-like that attest to the determination of its designers to come up with a design that is distinct from other Toyota vehicles and to set up a new styling direction in the mid-sized crossover segment that is not only sensual but also dynamic.

Toyota is getting ready to introduce a production version of the C-HR Concept, which would be targeted towards urban buyers seeking an edgier offering than the RAV4. Toyota unveiled the C-HR concept at the recently 2014 Paris Motor Show. According to Toyota Europe sales chief Karl Schlicht, while the production version of the C-HR "would be a size below the RAV4," it would still be considered a C-compact segment crossover.

The C-HR is 4350mm long and 1500mm tall, slotting it in between the Auris compact hatchback and the RAV4 compact SUV. Schlicht remarked at the sidelines of the show that the target buyers for the C-HR are quite different from those for the RAV-4.

Toyota said in a statement that C-HR concept has the “essential combination” of compact packaging and agility required by customers having active, urban lifestyles. It was powered by a new gasoline-electric hybrid powertrain that provides much improved fuel efficiency.

Thanks to the warm reception that original Toyota C-HR Concept got at the 2014 Paris Motor Show, the carmaker’s designers were heavily inspired to create a second iteration. The second Toyota C-HR Concept is a five-door design study that provides a glimpse of the looks of the final version of the compact crossover that has been confirmed for production. Featuring a more refined execution, Honda designed the new C-HR Concept to measure responses from certain target customer groups, whose feedback would allow project designers and engineers to refine the concept and create the final production.

Marked as design study for a stylish, lightweight yet dynamic hybrid crossover, the new C-HR Concept is expected to distinguish itself from the crowd. It is the next realization of a promise by Akio Toyoda to build better cars that bring the fun back to driving.

The Toyota C-HR Concept is essentially positioned between the B-SUV and C-SUV segments. With its compact dimensions suitable to urban driving, the new C-HR Concept delivers superb agility and flexible packaging. Toyota has the new C-HR Concept underpinned by a new platform -- the TNGA (Toyota New Global Architecture) – to ensure that it caters to demands for superior handling and controllability. It employs a new, advanced, full-hybrid powertrain that delivers an engaging driving experience suitable for the present traffic conditions, as well as excellent levels of efficiency.

Seen from the side, the vehicle shows muscular wheel arches and angular rear shoulders, while at the rear the aero-inspired floating taillamps add further emphasis. We already told you that the C-HR Concept previews the production version of the Auris Cross or the crossover version of the popular Auris.

Toyota already teased the C-HR Concept and told us that it will bring it next month at the 2014 Paris Motor Show, but the vehicle already showed up on the Web today. According to Toyota, the C-HR combined a new design language with the engaging driving experience as well as a hybrid powertrain.

No details are available but we expect this vehicle to preview the upcoming Auris Cross also known as the crossover version of the Auris. If it will keep its impressive design in the production version, the Auris Cross is expected to take on cars such as the Renault Captur and the Nissan Juke.

Moreover, the production version could be powered by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder petrol engine that generates 130 hp but the Japanese manufacturer will also offer a hybrid version, which will use the well-known 1.8-liter Atkinson cycle petrol engine that powers the Auris Hybrid.
