New compact crossover to slot below RAV4

Japanese automaker Toyota announced that it will be revealing a new compact crossover called the C-HR concept at the 2014 Paris Motor Show next month. A silhouette teaser was also released along with the announcement.

Toyota says “the C-HR concept combines a powerful new design language with an engaging driving experience and a hybrid powertrain.”

The C-HR concept will likely be based on the Corolla's C-segment platform and will preview a small crossover to slot below the RAV4. It will become Toyota's direct challenger to the Hyundai Tucson, Kia Sportage, Mitsubishi ASX, Nissan Juke and Subaru XV.
