You never know what comes out next from Toyota’s cooking pot.
After Launching the CH-R concept last year in Paris Auto Show
as a 2-door coupe, Toyota surprised everyone when they debuted
the same concept as a subcompact SUV with two extra doors at
the Frankfurt Auto Show.
The production model will likely carry five doors. It is being
rumored that the crossover will go by the name Auris Cross when
it reaches production.
2017 Toyota CH-R Exterior
The design is new and futuristic with an exterior profile that
makes the car appear huge. The new 2017 Toyota CH-R crossover
will be based on the Toyota New Generation Architecture (TNGA)
which the latest version of Prius is based.
The large profile is further enhanced by its huge; however, the
huge size can be mostly attributed to its large bumpers and
arches. The version that debuted at Frankfurt looks closer to
the final production version which our spies have spotted
testing though disguised in heavy camouflage. The spotted
subcompact SUV has a length of 171.25 inches, width of 72.83
and stands at a height of 59.05 inches. The front fascia look
has borrowed from the Corolla including the Corolla’s front bumpers.
The front also features narrow headlights with a sporty grille
flanked with LED headlamps. The front look is further enhanced
by bold and sharp lines on the hood. The bold lines continue to
the swooping rear roofline that flow to the backend giving it a
better sporting stance. The rear features boomerang-shaped
taillights with LED lighting. The vehicle rides on large
diamond shaped wheels which introduce a new and different
2017 Toyota CH-R Interior
As far as the interior is concerned, we have no official
information. However, we believe Toyota will hook up the
vehicle with a pleasant interior styling with modern features.
The cabin will be upholstered in quality cloth and we expect
the bold curves on the outside to be carried to the cabin
specifically to the dashboard.
It will also feature a modern infotainment system, a climate
control as well as other convenient features and modern
technologies. We will update you on more details as the vehicle
nears its debut so keep it here for more.
There is no official information on what will drive the 2017
Toyota CH-R. However, Toyota has confirmed that the model will
be offered as a hybrid but didn’t clarify whether there will be
variants powered by conventional drive-trains.
According to rumors, there is a possibility of a D-4D diesel
power-train as well as a petrol engine in addition to the
hybrid pairing of a petrol engine and an electric motor.
Price and release date
It is still too early to expect the automaker to release
information on its price or release date. However, Toyota has
confirmed that the production model of the 2017 CH-R will make
its debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March next year with
sales following later before summer.
We expect the automaker to announce its official price during
its debut at Geneva. However, rumor has it that the model will
be priced lower than the RAV4 meaning it will cost around
The biggest rival to the 2017 Toyota CH-R will be the latest
version the 2016 Nissan
