Toyota C-HR Geneva teaser

The wait is almost over. At next month’s Geneva Motor Show, Toyota will finally unveil the production version of the Toyota C-HR. The Japanese carmaker isn’t revealing much about the C-segment crossover for now, aside from the fact that it will indeed be a five-door coupe design, and that it “shows the new face of Toyota.”

Revealed as a three-door concept in September 2014, the Toyota C-HR was later updated for the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show sporting two additional doors. While the concept featured a radical new design for a Toyota, the final production version may not follow suit, despite Hiro Koba’s earlier statements.

Looking at the light trail-filled teaser image, we do spot certain differences the production version will have from the concept. This includes new, larger headlights and a taller roofline. Until the car is revealed in full, everything we decipher from the teaser image is purely speculative.

What is certain is the crossover’s usage of Toyota’s TNGA (Toyota New Generation Architecture) platform, which debuted on the fourth-generation Toyota Prius. A hybrid powertrain is likely to be offered for the crossover as well.

Aside from the long-awaited Toyota C-HR, the new Proace Verso MPV and Hilux will also be making its European debut in Geneva. The former is spawned from a collaboration between PSA Peugeot Citroen and Toyota that began in 2012, while the latter was revealed in Thailand in May 2015.
