C-HR” is Toyota’s (slightly) sexier way of saying “Coupe – High Rider” despite the fact that this vehicle has four doors and rides quite low for a crossover. The company did a better job with the styling than the name. The bulging fenders, tapered greenhouse, falling roofline, and rising beltline were originally sketched at Toyota’s California design studio and survived almost entirely intact through two concept iterations that were shown in September 2014 and September 2015. (There also was a Scion version shown last November, as the C-HR was to be sold here under that brand before Toyota killed it off last month.) The styling is the very definition of polarizing. The C-HR is not remotely beautiful, but the busy surfaces and many creases catch shadows and reflect light in such a way as to at least make it interesting to behold. The detail work is equally fussy.The C-HR is built on Toyota’s New Global Architecture (TNGA), a flexible platform that debuted with Toyota’s fourth-generation Prius. Compared with the one-size-up RAV4, the C-HR is roughly 10 inches shorter, two inches narrower, and four inches lower. Yet the C-HR still has a significant size advantage on the Juke. The Toyota packs an extra 8.9 inches of length and 4.3 inches of wheelbase compared with the Nissan, so it should be better suited to moving passengers and cargo behind the front seats. Toyota also says it wants the C-HR’s dance moves to match its looks. Engineers claim it handles like a C-segment hatchback, with less body roll than the common crossover.The C-HR will be offered with a 1.2-liter turbocharged four-cylinder or a hybrid powertrain that uses a 1.8-liter four-cylinder, but it seems unlikely that either of those choices will make it to the U.S., at least initially. (U.S. Toyota representatives were unable to verify the powertrains or the launch timing for our C-HR.) We suspect that Americans instead will receive the third powertrain, a naturally aspirated 2.0-liter four-cylinder paired exclusively with a continuously variable automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive should be standard, with all-wheel drive optional.It remains to see witch engine will appear in usa and what will be interest in this model of Toyota.
