Toyota teases next-generation C-HR

Toyota has previewed the next-generation of its popular C-HR small SUV with the C-HR prologue.

Launched back in 2016, the C-HR provided the bold styling direction for Toyota and the new concept is set to take that further, with what the brand dubbed ‘a precision organic design language’.

It features a smaller grille opening along with slender C-shaped headlights to accentuate the ‘high-tech identity of the concept’.

The C-HR prologue rides on bigger wheels and the overhangs are noticeably shorter, giving the concept a more sporty and stronger aesthetic.

Finishing it off is a striking tri-colour option of sulphur over a metal silver and recycled carbon black.

The concept was designed by Toyota’s European Design Development team ED2 who also designed the original C-HR.

Toyota Australia Vice President Sales, Marketing and Franchise Operations Sean Hanley said the C-HR was here to stay.

“The current C-HR was embraced by customers for its bold styling and unique small SUV packaging and the concept vision for the next generation C-HR takes that to an even higher level, said Mr Hanley.

The next-generation C-HR will be offered globally with both hybrid and plug-in hybrid powertrains and a move towards Toyota’s multi-technology electrification strategy.

Toyota Australia hasn’t revealed the launch date for the new C-HR in Australia but it’s likely to arrive sometime in 2024.
