Turbo SUV Arriving 2017!

Posted: 2/03/2016

CMI Toyota is pleased to advise that this morning Toyota Australia announced that they are set to enter the fastest-growing segment of the local market with the daringly styled C-HR compact crossover vehicle.

Toyota's newest SUV is marked for released in early 2017 after a much-anticipated world premiere of the production model at this year's Geneva motor show.

Toyota Australia's executive director sales and marketing Tony Cramb said the eye-catching C-HR will be the company's first entrant in the highly competitive small SUV category, which has almost tripled in size during the past four years.

"C-HR will expand Toyota's market appeal with its stunning design and superb driving performance - with powerful low-end torque and outstanding handling and agility - all while delivering impressive fuel economy," Mr Cramb said.

An all-new platform, developed as part of Toyota's New Generation Architecture philosophy, delivers sharp driving dynamics supported by a highly rigid body structure and low centre of gravity.

A new-generation 1.2-litre direct-injection turbo-charged petrol engine fitted to Australian variants generates impressive acceleration and responsiveness.

The 85kW four-cylinder direct-injection engine is characterised by abundant torque at low engine and vehicle speeds, achieving its peak of 185Nm at just 1,500rpm and maintaining it all the way to 4,000rpm*.

Strong low-end torque enables the driver to achieve intended dynamic performance at the same time as Toyota's latest combustion and other engine technologies ensure excellent fuel efficiency.

Locally, the five-door C-HR will be available in 2WD and AWD configurations with six-speed manual and continuously variable automatic transmissions.

The C-HR will be well equipped with advanced safety specification including standard autonomous braking and reversing camera.

Marginally longer and wider than a Corolla hatch, the C-HR employs the higher ride height of an SUV and benefits from a longer wheelbase.

Extroverted styling for the new model keeps faith with the widely praised designs of two concept studies that signalled a more emotional styling direction for the world's leading carmaker.
