Toyota C-HR has been spotted testing in India, launch expected by 2021.
The Toyota C-HR has been spied testing in the outskirts of Bengaluru by MotorBeam reader Saketa Reddy Gopavaram. The radical-looking crossover is based on Toyota’s new TNGA (Toyota New Global Architecture) platform and is heavily tipped to be part of the automaker’s future line-up. The C-HR is likely to be the second car to be launched in India on the new platform after the all-new Corolla, which is also expected to be powered by a hybrid powertrain.
The C-HR is a funky-looking car that sports a unique design. The sweptback headlights with LED DRLs, the sloping roofline and the boomerang-shaped LED tail-lights all scream for attention. The cabin too adopts the funky and stylish approach with a unique seating position. Despite the sloping roofline, headroom at the rear isn’t cramped.
Under the hood, the C-HR is likely to sport a hybrid powertrain. The 1.8-litre petrol engine and an electric motor will produce a combined power output of 122 HP. The combination of petrol mill and the electric motor is likely to make the crossover very fuel-efficient as well. The vehicle is expected to make its debut either in 2020 or latest by 2021. The company will either assemble or manufacture the car here depending on the demand.
