Toyota’s new hybrid crossover, the C-HR will be released later this year.
Fitted with the Japanese car maker’s latest petrol-electric system, it’s said to offer unparalled low emissions and high fuel economy for its class.
Alongside the hybrid version, the new model will also be available in the UK with a 1.2-litre, 114bhp turbocharged petrol engine with either a six-speed manual or CVT gearbox – the latter available with optional four-wheel drive. A larger 2.0 petrol option will also be offered in some markets, but not here in the UK.
The final design of the C-HR – which will take on the Nissan Qashqai and Hyundai Tucson – has broadly kept the bold lines of the original concept. That should mean it’s one of the most noticeable cars on the road.
