Toyota has unveiled a new concept car at the 2014 Paris motor show called the C-HR concept. The car is firmly a concept now, but Toyota says that the concept is a hint at a car it would like to bring to market. The vehicle is a crossover that reminds me a bit of the Nissan Juke, which has proven very popular for Nissan.
Toyota says that the concept combines a new dynamic design language with agile and engaging driving characteristics to design a vehicle aimed at the European market. Toyota is designing the vehicle with an eye towards active customers in the urban environment where a car with compact packaging and agility is required.
Little details are offered about the powertrain of the vehicle other than to say it will use a full hybrid powertrain. As with any concept car, there is no guarantee that Toyota will ever bring the car to market. On the outside, the car is flamboyant, which concept cars are typically. I don’t see any design cues that are so outlandish that the vehicle couldn’t come to market. This is a very nice looking concept and I’d wager it would come to markets outside Europe if Toyota builds it to help sell more units.Filed Under: Auto News
