Want to know where Toyota might go in the near future for the crossover segment? The C-HR Concept as seen above might be a clue.

According to CarScoops, the three-door concept combines “a bold new design language with an agile, engaging driving experience and a Hybrid powertrain,” though not much else is known beyond the production version having 3- and 5-door variants, and being positioned beneath the RAV4.

The publication noted that an Auris-based test mule similar in shape and size to the C-HR Concept had undergone testing somewhere in Europe this July.

    Well, JDM sake must be stronger than the export variety, perhaps has a dollop of Mt Fuji Celestial Mushroom essence. Burp.

  • Lou_BC Ironic, the Honda Ridgeline, a truck that every truck guy loves to hate is in 6th place.
  • 28-Cars-Later I keep forgetting I own it, but the space look on the ext cab reminds me of my 'Yota pickup of the same model year. I'm pretty sure there is some vintage of Hilux which features the same looking ext cab window (maybe '88?) its a shame these things are mostly gone and when available are $1,000,000,000 [INSERT CURRENT CURRENCY].
  • Sayahh Imagine if Ford had Toyota design and build a Mustang engine. It will last over 300k miles! (Skip turbo and make it naturally aspirated.) Maybe Yamaha will help tune it...
  • Sobhuza Trooper Isuzu's crime was to build some damn good trucks.Shame on them.
  • El scotto Listen, unless you were Lord Headly-Stempmoor or such when you got off the off the boat, boot in Canada, you got the short end of the stick. People got on the boat, these days a plane, to escape famine, becoming cannon fodder in yet another stupid war, or the government thought it was A-OK to let soldiers kill you. Juneteenth is just a way to right one of the more bad ideas in the American experiment. Instead we have commenters who were buying tater chips and diet soda at Wal-Mart and got all butt-hurt because they heard someone who wasn't speaking English. I'm going to go fix a couple of frankfurters with salsa and guacamole and wash them down with a lager or three
