2015 Frankfurt Motor Show LIVE: Updated Toyota C-HR Concept image
The updated Toyota C-HR Concept has been shown at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show.
The original Toyota C-HR Concept has been introduced last year, during the 2014 Paris Motor Show, providing us with a glimpse of a future production sub-compact crossover. Now, the carmaker is bringing an updated version of the vehicle to the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, and if you were expecting for a production version, you will have to wait a little longer because this is said to be brought to the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, next March.
The brand new Toyota C-HR Concept is riding on a new Toyota New Global Architecture platform which has been also used on the most recent Prius. This is making use of a full hybrid powertrain with a gasoline engine which has a thermal efficiency of more than 40 percent, while the electric motor, which is also newly developed, along with the battery, is adopting a compact layout. In terms of design, the updated one-off car has a funky appearance and it is now bringing rear doors too, for more practicality. It is riding on large 21-inch wheels with a machined surface and the body paint has been changed as well. It is also coming with conventional side mirrors now. No images with the interior of the sub-compact crossover have been released at this point and chances are this isn’t ready yet. More details on the final production variant will be announced at the Swiss automotive event, next spring. Meanwhile, you can take a look at this one, in the gallery posted below.
