2017 Toyota CH-R

2017 Toyota C-HR Video, First Look Ľ AutoGuide.com News

Quote:
Toyota has an all-new crossover ready to invade the crowded segment.


The 2017 Toyota C-HR was originally supposed to arrive in North America as a Scion model, but now that the brand has been axed, it will be sold as a Toyota. Built on the Japanese automakerís new TNGA modular platform that was introduced on the new Prius, the C-HR will actually be offered as hybrid. Yes, itís the same powertrain as the Prius with a 1.8-liter paired to an electric motor to provide a total system output of 122 horsepower.


Toyota will also offer the C-HR with a 1.2-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 155 hp, paired to either a six-speed manual transmission or CVT. In addition, the company plans to offer a 2.0-liter mill for select markets, which will likely be the engine available in the U.S. while the smaller 1.2-liter engine is sold in Europe.

Overall, the 2017 Toyota C-HR is stylish, with a sporty coupe design. The company claims it wonít be boring to drive either, with a low center of gravity and multi-link rear suspension.

Does it have a 2 tone paint job or is that just the lighting?

it's the lighting.

i keep thinking it looks like a turtle. but does it look better or worse than a Juke or a HR-V?

it's too bad it dosen't have the 194hp 2.5L/hybrid setup from the RAV-4...

supposed to slot under the RAV-4, just like how the HR-V is with the CR-V?

Don't know about the rest of you guys, but I love it, very radical and dynamic styling for sure.

Please Toyota, just don't make a CVT the only choice of transmission? I'd much prefer you stuck in a 6spd automatic

i'm just happy there is a 6spd manual

the hybrid version uses a e-CVT, which uses a planetary differential gearset which can simulate an auto 6spd... but from what little that was said in the review above, i guess the regular gas versions uses the rubber band CVT i hate so much

found this on a japanese website that wouldn't translate into english... all i could read was "gazoo racing", so it might be a concept for a race design and not just rice...

you are right... now that i'm looking at it, i think that's an aygo dashboard? damn. i can't find anything online. it's based on the prius so i'm worried it's going to look weird.

they like triple blacked out the glass on the show car, just like they did on the ft-86 when it was doing the show circuit... but it's been literally within the last 24 hours this was made public so hopefully someone will risk opening the door.

Looks like a slammed Rav4. Huge upgrade in the looks department compared to the Venza though.
