2016 Toyota C-HR: Controversial looks for Juke competitor

The company that created the modern crossover will finally tackle the city SUV category with the Toyota C-HR, a new gas only crossover with polarizing looks.

European versions of the Toyota C-HR will be built in Turkey, and will be offered with a 85kW (114hp) 1.2-liter turbo with FWD or AWD, and either a manual or CVT. There’s also a 91kW (122hp) 1.8-liter hybrid and, for some markets, a 2-liter CVT only model.

Based on the coupe-like C-HR concepts, the production C-HR is built upon the modular Toyota New Generation Architecture (TNGA) and has a more angular style. It has been designed to directly take on the Nissan Juke and Honda HR-V with a disguised rear door handle and a floating roof look.

The C-HR is available with LED lighting, lane departure warning, road sign recognition, automatic high beams, adaptive cruise control, and pedestrian detection.
