The spies did it again, but this time it's an undisguised prototype :eek:









The U.S.-bound C-HR was supposed to wear the Scion badge, but since Toyota is saying “scionara” to its youth-oriented brand, the tiny high-riding model will wear the logo with the three overlapping ellipses.
While the exterior and interior design will remain essentially the same, that won’t be the case with the engine. Europeans get to pick from a turbocharged 1.2-liter with 115 horsepower (85 kilowatts) and a hybridized, 122-hp 1.8-liter. Moreover, in select countries (excluding UK), Toyota will sell the C-HR with a naturally-aspirated 2.0-liter.

This is one thing I love about Toyota, they'll show you a concept and come time for it's production version to drop, little has changed, we get to see what we're getting right from the start.

Surprised I didn't see or mention it before but i'm starting to see a bit of the RX in the rear end of the C-HR. Compare for yourselves and see:

I don't see the similarities. What are you looking at?

As for the spied photos, I love how sporty the C-HR looks and they kept the pinched metal line spanning the length of the car.

The similarities are with how the roof ends and it surrounding area, if you focus on that you'll see quite a lot going on that are similar.
On the downside those RX owner won't be as thrilled about it as we are, since they're spending so much and have a design used on some cheap entry-level crossover.

Just heard they have plans to come out with a vehicle that sits right under the C-HR. Sound like what could be a good city car, and something that might start showing up in good numbers at car sharing companies.

BMW and Mercedes seems to be guilty of coming out with similar looking car designs. I really can't tell the difference with them but with Toyota you can easily do so since their lineup has a lot of unique looks in it.

Well these days there's a big divide in design from both brands. The last generation C-Class was probably the last of the "BMW-looking" MB sedans. Now everything MB has is completely different from other German brands and IMO, better looking.

The day I drove ours home my neighbor, who recently bought an RX stopped me to see what it was... he commented that he wished he knew about the C-HR before buying the Lexus.
