SHAPE OF THE FUTURE
Toyota Australia is set to enter the fastest-growing segment of the local market with the daringly styled C-HR compact crossover vehicle.
The newest SUV will be arriving 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.
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.
