Leaked: Toyota C-HR Concept

Article by Christian A., on September 21, 2014

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.

Front wheel drive will be available as standard, but as an option Toyota will offer an all-wheel-drive system in order to let you challenge demanding roads.

The front end of the C-HR Concept features an evolution of the carmaker’s Keen Look design identity. Its slim upper grille – located just above central bumper profile – has become a floating 'wing' graphic flowing smoothly around the front corners. Placed at the far ends of the wing are streamlined headlamp units that combine advanced lighting technology with diamond-pattern detailing.

Well-sculpted downward projections flank the CH-R’s large, diamond-patterned lower grille, thereby giving its corners a more impressive appearance while boosting its solid stance and the low center of gravity. These elements are complemented by an aero-inspired, floating front spoiler.

Meanwhile, the sides of the CH-R Concept are marked by an impressively sleek cabin profile, muscular wheel arches and angular rear shoulder. The concept also features a floating roof finished in piano black paint and detailed with patterned openings. This design results to distinct animated interplay of light within the cabin room of the C-HR Concept.

Meanwhile, the glasshouse of the new CH-R Concept tapers down to a its dynamic lower body, which is accentuated by elements like aero-inspired, floating rear lamp clusters with diamond-pattern lens detailing as well as integrated fog lamps and a pronounced diffuser. Meanwhile, the concept rides on21-inch wheels design with 'diamond-cut', machined-surface spokes.
