Faster Version C-HR Possible

Chief engineer Hiroyuki Koba, hope I spelt that right, but has said that a faster version is a possibility for the US version Toyota C-HR but he did say that they really didn't have any plans yet.

He did put a C-HR prototype with 160hp version of the turbo motor (1.2L) on the good old 'ring this year so it may be a good possibility ?!

It's going to be a while because if you look at what Toyota typically does, faster models don't come out till 3-4+ years down the line, but at the end of the day it depends on how well all the lower trims are selling as often that provides justification for kicking it up a notch.

When it comes to power, having performance in line with the NISMO Juke is ideal, so, targeting its 215hp @ 6000rpm is what they should do.

That's definitely a reasonable amount of power. I can't see why they would shy away from a performance variant either anyhow.

They probably won't start off doing it just because of how easy it will be to stand out among the competition with a regular run of mill engine that doesn't do anything special. As the market gets competitive and projections are made for where the competition will go, then we'll likely see this forced induction smaller displacement engine come to market.

Toyota is about jabs, then coming in for the punch once they see fit.

Wait, if the more powerful version is using the same turbocharged engine that's already available in the C-HR, could an aftermarket company not tune it to produce 160-hp? The potential is there, we just need to unlock it.

With it having a stock output of 114hp, getting to 160hp may be a little difficult but definitely possible. Start doing some more minor modifications, downpipe, etc. and you get definitely achieve a nice number probably in the 175-180 range?

Most tunes will give vehicles a small bump in powers, of course the more the better, but realistically the best case scenario is around a 20 hp increase. An increase to around 175-180 range is way out there is all Toyota can squeeze out is 160.

175-180 range with the addition of other modifications (bolt-ons). There's no way in heck you're getting that much power from a tune alone, that's ridiculous.

The 1.2-liter turbocharged gasoline engine in the C-HR can only produce around 114hp. Would bumping the power that much not affect it negatively?
