The 2017 Toyota C-HR Designs Stands Out in the Small Crossover Class

October 18th, 2016 by

Toyota C-HR conceptThe subcompact crossover segment is about to get a lot more interesting. The all-new 2017 Toyota C-HR (coupe-high rise) was recently revealed, and to call its looks bold is an understatement. The 2017 Toyota C-HR design features sharp lines, sleek curves, and a stylishly aggressive aesthetic from front to back. If you’re looking for something that truly stands out on the road, you will want to be behind the wheel of the C-HR. Details are still being revealed, but here is what we know so far.


Despite being designated as a coupe, the 2017 Toyota C-HR design actually has four doors. The crossover has a sculpted front end with LED headlights that wrap around the wheel arches, as well as a prominent Toyota badge that sits front and center. The back is similarly head turning with boomerang-shaped taillights and angular flourishes that help this model look as good going as it does coming.


The specifics of the powertrain have yet to be released, but experts predict that the C-HR could run on a 2.0L four-cylinder engine paired with a dynamic continuously variable transmission. Front-wheel drive is likely to come standard, with all-wheel drive as a probably option. And thanks to suspension refinements inspired by hot hatchbacks, the C-HR should offer sporty handling and road moves. A gas/electric hybrid engine is being offered in international markets, but it’s not yet known if this engine will be available to American drivers at launch.


We don’t expect the 2017 Toyota C-HR to have too high of a price tag, but it will come with upscale features. International versions have been shown with advanced safety features like automatic emergency braking in the city and adaptive cruise control.  A large touchscreen also offers smartphone app integration and controls the high-end JBL stereo.
