2017 Toyota C-HR Debuts In Full In Paris With Three Engine Options

Toyota has unveiled the CH-R in full at the ongoing Paris Auto Show after its design preview earlier in the new at Geneva.

Standing for Coupe High-Rider, the new Toyota model bares a striking resemblance to its concept variant unveiled two years ago in Paris. It’s been spawned to rival vehicles like the Mazda CX-3, Nissan Juke and Honda JR-V.

Beneath the skin, the CH-R is based around the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) and when it hits the market, will be available in a number of guises. The range-topping model features a 2.0-liter petrol four-cylinder engine delivering 142 hp and mated to a CVT. However, this variant will only be available in select markets.

Elsewhere, like the UK, the range will be topped out by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder mated to an electric motor to produce a total of 120 hp and achieving 78.5 mpg over the combined cycle, all while emitting just 82 g/km of CO2 emissions. Last but not least is a 1.2-liter turbo petrol engine already available on the Prius, outputting 114 hp and 185 Nm of torque. This engine can be joined to either a six-speed manual transmission or a CVT and will also be offered in front and all-wheel drive configurations.

The model’s exterior design is clearly reflective of the marque’s current design language, combining edgy and eye-catching body panels into a sleek package not dissimilar to the NX offered by Lexus. The car itself measures 4,360 mm long, 1,795 mm wide and 1,550 mm high with a 2,640 mm wheelbase.

Inside, the Toyota C-HR has an eight-inch touchscreen incorporating the company’s Touch 2 multimedia system. Also found within are a selection of piano black and satin silver trim and a shallow dashboard design, providing the driver with an excellent field of vision.

Numerous safety features come standard on all versions, including Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Alert, Automatic High Beam, Road Sign Assist and a Pre-Collision System with pedestrian warning. Heated seats are also available as is rear privacy glass, 18-inch alloy wheels and a smart entry system.

  • pmindemann

    Looks nice. But the drivetrain blows (underpowered, over CVT-d).

  • Dustin

    A 2.0L seems quite “large” to only be making 142hp.

  • Six Thousand Times

    I’d go with the 2.0. More interesting than your typical mom mobile.

  • SteersUright

    Very cool car but where’s the real engine for it? A rebodied Corolla, designed to look cool and drive lame? C’mon Toyota.
