2016 Toyota C-HR Hybrid.jpg

Toyota C-HR (ZYX10/NGX50). 2016 to date (prod. n/a). 5-door SUV. F/F, F/A, 1197, 1987 cm³ petrol, 1798 cm³ petrol–electric hybrid (I4 DOHC). Originally conceived for Europe, a compact crossover on Toyota’s New Global Architecture (TNGA-C) shared with the Toyota Prius (ZVW50) (albeit with a shorter wheelbase), and overseen by engineer Hiro Koba. C-HR stood for Coupé-High Rider. Unusually for Toyota, the company placed style over interior room first, and when the dynamics of the smaller prototype weren’t up to par, they waited for the newer platform, with a lower centre of gravity. Interesting interior with better quality materials, another surprise for Toyota. Decent steering, good ride. Some engine noise.


Manufacturing location: Ōhira, Miyagi, Japan

Marque: Toyota
