New Toyota C-HR Expected to Launch Next Year

Contrary to its home market, the C-HR hasn’t done much for Toyota in terms of sales


  • It will be larger than the current model.

  • A hybrid powertrain option is likely.

  • It’s expected to break cover next spring.


Quirky, unusual, and the absence of an AWD option could be some reasons as to why the Toyota C-HR crossover has generated much of anything for the automaker. It’s been rumoured that no encore was expected for the vehicle but that seems to have changed.

In Japan and a number of European markets, the Toyota CH-R has proven to be a popular urban utility vehicle option. This and other considerations might be behind Toyota’s alleged decision to introduce a second generation as early as next spring.

The new Toyota CH-R, according to bestcar, will be slightly wider and taller than the outgoing model. More importantly, perhaps is that its styling will be heavily inspired by the bZ compact SUV released in December last year. Unlike the bZ3X, also influenced by the same concept, the next CH-R should feature a hybrid powertrain.

For the moment, given that these are rumours, it seems unlikely that the CH-R will carry on in North America beyond the 2022 or perhaps 2023 model year. Toyota has recently introduced the Corolla Cross as well as a hybrid version of the latter meaning that there will be precious little room for a new CH-R.
