It’s SUV concept time apparently, Toyota have followed Peugeot’s lead by announcing a new sporty SUV concept for the Paris Motor Show – the C-HR.
It may sound like a department in your office but this is an entirely different form of human resources – a hint at a newer, more sporty little brother for the Rav-4.
The body is a low slung coupe on stilts, with a rear end that has more than a hint of Hyundai Veloster.
This is the first glimpse we get of Toyota’s new ‘diamond’ design concept, and it comes with sleek LED filled front lights and the apparent abandoning of sort of almost x-shape we’ve seen on the front of the Aygo and Yaris.
Either side of a low intake are upright foglights made of three pinpricks of LED light, chiseled into the C-HR’s cheeks.
As usual for a concept it sits on hulking great alloys, while at the rear the lights now form wraparound C-shapes that stand out from the C-HR’s wide shoulders.
Up top dark sections in the A-Pillar and glass through the C mean the roof appears to float over the sea of glass that encloses the cockpit.
No more information has been given on the potential Qashqai contender but it will make its debut on October 2 in Paris.
