Introducing Toyota’s New “Coupe High-Rider” Subcompact SUV

The all-new 2018 Toyota C-HR will present itself this April. The subcompact crossover SUV will ride on the automaker’s new global platform, which is called the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA). It is the same platform used for the new generation Toyota Prius and the upcoming Toyota Camry.

The crossover comes directly from the European market, with minimal adaptations aside from a different powertrain. Originally premiered as the Scion C-HR, Toyota calls its concept and styling “avant-garde” and “fashion-forward.” The C-HR is set to compete with the likes of the Nissan Juke, Mazda CX-3, Jeep Renegade, and Honda HR-V.

The driver-centric C-HR was built to blend sportiness with impressive good looks, along with the utmost comfort. Toyota’s engineers designed the car with a “Distinctive Diamond” theme, which is portrayed inside and out. According to the automaker, the goal was to “sculpt an urban-dwelling crossover that would effortlessly navigate tight city streets and stand out, with an agile, dynamic expressiveness.”
