Toyota C-HR Hybrid, Detroit 2016


In the Paris Salon of last year we met the prototype C-HR Concept, three-door. This year, at the iaa in Frankfurt, we met a second prototype -the C-HR Concept II – closest to a model number, and with five doors. remains for Us to see another prototype, is even closer to the reality.

According to sources close to Toyota quoted by Motoring, the next month we will see the C-HR Hybrid, based on the same mechanical layout that the new Prius. Both models share the platform, the TNGA, which allows you to give rise to multiple models, with lower costs.

The Toyota C-HR shall enter into the competitive new segment crossover B, which virtually inaugurated the Nissan Juke, where there are many contenders such as the Peugeot 2008, Renault Capture, or Opel Mokka. The japanese will be the only one to offer engines gasoline, diesel and hybrid.

The gasoline will surely be the 1.2 Turbo new batch of 115 HP, and the hybrid will yield a 122-HP. In terms of diesel, the 1.4 D-4D and 1.6 D-4D are candidates for the firm to get into your engine bay. Toyota promised a few years ago that by 2020 there will be a hybrid in every segment, so this news should not surprise anybody. Is more, the second prototype has already announced a hybrid version.
