Toyota’s Bold New Baby SUV on it’s way to SA


Slotting in under the Rav4 as the brand’s rival to vehicles like the Nissan Qashqai, the Auris-sized C-HR (it stands for Compact High Rider) displays distinctive styling with a coupe-like roofline, hidden rear door handles, and sharp geometric curves reminiscent of cousin Lexus. (Credit: IOL)




Not much technical detail was revealed at the car’s “launch” at the SA Festival of Motoring (it was displayed only in hologram form), except that it’s powered by a 1.2-litre turbocharged engine, marking Toyota’s long-awaited foray into force-fed petrol engines.





The four cylinder unit produces outputs of 84kW and 185Nm and it will be paired with either a manual or CVT transmission powering the front wheels.



Overseas the C-HR will be optionally available in all-wheel drive but it’s not yet confirmed whether this version will come to SA.
