Toyota confirms C-HR crossover to debut at Geneva

Finally in exactly a month we'll see the C-HR in full, as confirmed by Toyota. Although Toyota has a habit of keeping concepts, hopefully we still get to see teaser photos in the days leading up to its reveal.

Quote:
With the compact crossover segment booming with new entries, Toyota soon intends to burst into the popular market with a production version of the C-HR concept. The rakishly styled, little CUV will show off its final face at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show next March, and European sales will start before summer, Autocar reports. Customers in the US will likely get to drive the angular model, too.

The C-HR concept's chiseled shape is expected to make the transition to the road largely unaltered. According to Autocar, customers reportedly really dig the razor-sharp look versus a more conventional CUV design. A hybrid is also expected to be included in the production powertrain lineup, but non-electrified options could be available, too.

The Japanese automaker last displayed the C-HR at this year's Frankfurt Motor Show. Underneath the avant-garde shape, the Toyota New Global Architecture provided the underpinnings, and a hybrid powertrain was there for propulsion. The concept's general design idea was actually the revival of a three-door crossover from the 2014 Paris Motor Show.

In addition, the production C-HR is expected eventually to arrive in the US but likely wearing a Scion badge. Spy shots highly suggest that a crossover is already under development, and the entry would give the division a much-needed challenger to the Nissan Juke, Honda HR-V, Mazda CX-3, and plenty of others. Plus, the brand is keeping it absolutely no secret that a third, new model is on way to join the iA and iM.

So they're going to keep those sexy angles and sharp headlights/tailights? I want one!
Now we'll have to see if the interior matches the exterior.

Yeah. What you should do is take a look at how they have transitioned from concept to production in the past, you'll get an idea of what to expect. They're known for keeping concepts close to production models.

Why are they making it a Scion when Scion is going to be shut down soon anyway. What is the point?

It's not going to be a Scion. The new C-HR will go under the Toyota badge.

So the Scion concept was basically for no reason? What a strange thing thing to do. There was actually no difference except that badge.

Concept was definitely for no reason. The typical Scion things about the design wont make it but surely most of it will stick and we all know those Scion things about design aren't BIG, quite small.

Not really, the Scion iM concept looked great and it was watered down into that ugly production model.

The Scion concept wasn't different at all from the Toyota concept except the badge. They were literally the same other than that.

You haven't seen many concepts then, if you did, you would know what I mean. Most concepts Toyota shows off are close to production models, that's a fact, not my opinion.
