Toyota has announced that during the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show we will see the 2018 CH-R model. This is for the first time we will see the C-HR in US. First time Toyota announced that the CH-R will be sold under the Scion brand but now Scion is dead. As a result, the C-HR will be sold under the Toyota logo.
Unfortunately, Toyota hasn’t announced the powertrains that will be available in the States, but in other markets the Japanese model is offered with two petrol units and with a hybrid powertrain. We are talking about a 1.2 liter turbocharged engine rated at 114 horsepower matted to a six speed manual transmission or to a CVT and about a 2.0 liter 142 horsepower which will come only with a CVT.

As you already know, the Toyota C-HR has 171.7 in. (4,360 mm) long, 70.7 in. (1,795 mm) wide and 1,550 mm (61 in.) tall, and 103.9 in. (2,640 mm) wheelbase.
