Second-gen C-HR to have hybrid and plug-in hybrid engines
It was only a couple of weeks ago when Toyota teased the all-new C-HR crossover, but now some folks simply could not wait for its June 26 debut.
Leaked images of what appear to be studio pictures of the second-generation C-HR show the changes Toyota made to the crossover both inside and out.
It looks like the manufacturer has carried over the majority of the design characteristics of the C-HR Prologue concept that was first revealed last year. That includes the front fascia design first seen on the Prius and Crown which appears to be the brand's new design language going forward.
The C-HR also has flush door handles for better aerodynamics and a two-tone paint job for the promotional model.
Inside, the C-HR gets a new steering wheel design, a full-digital instrument display, a large infotainment screen, plus red contrast stitching and LED ambient lighting.
Based on reports, the C-HR could come with three engine options: a 1.8 and 2.0-liter hybrid, plus a 2.0-liter plug-in hybrid that can cover up to 87 km of all-electric range. Also, Toyota will reportedly have both front-wheel-drive and E-Four all-wheel-drive available across all model ranges.
Unfortunately, the second-generation C-HR appears to still not be included in the official Toyota PH lineup. But for other markets that will have it, sales are tipped to start by Q4 2023.
