These are the first two images of Toyota’s C-HR Concept, officially released by Toyota ahead of the concept’s debut at this year’s Paris Motor Show. More angles will probably be released closer to the show.

Toyota says the C-HR Concept previews a new C-segment SUV, which means the brand is finally going to come out with a product to go head to head with the likes of the Honda CR-V and the Mazda CX-5, since the RAV4 has moved a bit upmarket.

However, with the car getting an European debut, we can’t say for sure that it will be a global product – it could be an Euro-centric product like the Toyota Auris designed to take the fight to other Euro SUVs like the Ford Kuga and the Volkswagen Tiguan.

We previously sighted a jacked up Toyota Auris on test – that could be the running gear for the production version of this new C-segment SUV on trial runs.
