This is Toyota’s C-HR Sporty Compact Crossover Concept

Toyota’s all-new C-HR Concept has come out of the digital shadows showing itself ahead of its first public outing at next month’s 2014 Paris auto show.

It’s a stylized, three-door compact crossover model made to stir up interest and give us a very rough idea of what Toyota is planning for the near future in the category.

Very few details are known about the car, with the Japanese brand having previously said that it combines “a bold new design language with an agile, engaging driving experience and a Hybrid powertrain”.

Up until now, we’ve only seen one prototype that matches the size and characteristics of the C-HR in the form of a high-riding test-mule of the Toyota Auris hatch, which we spotted testing on European roads back in July.

A production version of the study, which would sit under the RAV4, could be offered in both 3- and 5-door body styles.

    I’d rock this as my daily driver if the AWD system is any good – economical and can hop the occasional curb or climb a snowbank.

    I see Toyota following in the footsteps of VW, offering up a personal 2+2 CUV coupe like VW did not too long ago. There ought to be a growing segment for these multipurpose personal 2+2 seating vehicles that you can also use as a daily driver in a dense suburb or urban area. Looks fantastic, especially the front end.
