On this year, Geneva Motor Show Toyota presented us with C-HR concept that stands for “Coupe – High Rider”. Now the 2017 Toyota C-HR or new Prius SUV is coming next year to the market. There are not many information about this new exotic model, but we collected all that we found and now we are going to present them to you!
Well you see it for yourself that it has “funky lines” and recognizable boomerang-like taillights, bulbous wheel wells. It also has LED front headlamps and an elegant diamond-patterned grille, complete with the dramatic front styling. That said C-HR is smaller than his corporate sibling the RAV4 is, but bigger than competition Nissan Juke. Moreover, what we saw, new C-HR or Prius SUV has much greater interior room.
C-HR uses the same Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) like 2016 Prius, and that is how we guessed that it would be new Prius SUV. With this model, Toyota will now have third hybrid crossover, after the Highlander and RAV4.
The interior will be at the same high quality as the exterior. You can comfortably fit five people inside, and has leather seats. As for a visibility, it will be high for all around.
The new Features in C-HR you will be able to enjoy central 8-inch touch screen with eye-level interaction with the latest Toyota Touch® 2 multimedia system. The 2017 Toyota C-HR will have illuminated cup holders, and automatic air conditioning in basic model.
There are many speculations about new 2017 Toyota C-HR Crossover, but we will set aside two that have most sense, and both are coming from big websites.
First info that we found is on caranddriver.com that they are “guessing it will have a 2.0-liter four-cylinder, a CVT and front-drive; all-wheel drive will be optional.” Not bad, but that we stumbled on much more sensible idea and more competitive opportunity that C-HR will come with hybrid drivetrain, good for 120 horsepower. Engine will be a turbocharged to 1.2-liter with 113 hp. This information we found on motorauthority, and it is official for now, but we are not sure. Anyway, for US market there will not be any official info soon. We think that Toyota want to keep it a secret.
2017 Toyota C-HR Release Date and Price
The new 2017 model will be available on market in January 2017 – according to Toyota Official website. The official price is not out yet, but we heard some rumors that C-HR will cost around $30K.
