Next month’s Paris motor show is set to welcome the Toyota C-HR, a compact crossover concept with a hybrid powertrain that marries “a bold new design language” to “an agile, engaging driving experience.”

The carmaker says the C-HR reveals its “unique take on the C-crossover segment.” The above teaser image shows slender high-mounted headlamps, a rakish windscreen and rear window, a roof spoiler and some striking LED tail lamps, but little else.

Toyota has been testing an SUV with an Auris body on top of it – see spyshots below. This reminds us of when the Lexus NX prototype was being tested with a Lexus CT body.

Could this be the production version of the C-HR concept?
