Toyota has announced that it will unveil the U.S.-version of its all-new C-HR compact crossover at the upcoming Los Angeles auto show.
As you might recall, the Toyota C-HR made its global debut earlier this year at the Geneva Motor Show. However, that unveiling was accompanied by few technical details. Toyota is expected to divulge more information in LA.
What we do know is that the C-HR will ride on Toyota’s modular Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform and offer both front- and all-wheel drive configurations. The European model will use a multi-link rear suspension, but it remains to be seen if that sportier (and more expensive) setup will make its way across the pond.
Power could be provided by a 1.2L turbocharged engine currently used by the Toyota Auris. A hybrid variant is also said to be in the works.
Billed as a “five-door coupe,” the C-HR promises to be a departure from Toyota’s more traditional SUV offerings. Given that it was originally designed as a Scion, it should come as no surprised that Toyota is aiming the C-HR directly at the youth market.
Toyota will unveil the C-HR on November 17.
