Theo Toyota C-HR production render

Although the final production version of the Toyota C-HR Concept is not due to make an appearance until the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, master renderer Theophilus Chin has taken it upon himself to “kick start” the movement with this production-ready render of the crossover.

Combining elements from the C-HR Concept with the Nissan Kicks Concept, the crossover here doesn’t carry the arresting visuals of the earlier concept. Nonetheless, Toyota’s “Keen Look” design language is clearly seen at the front, with the slim upper grille and floating “wing” graphic.

From that point onwards, the Nissan Kicks’ element shines through, featuring muscular wheel arches and rear shoulders that are by and away less angular in look than what is seen on the concept. At the rear, the Kick’s “floating roof” design is retained as well. Rounding off the list of design highlights on the render are five-twin-spoke alloy wheels and a coat of silver paint.

The Toyota C-HR utilises the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform, which debuted on the fourth-generation Prius. It is also said to receive a new-generation, full-hybrid powertrain.
