Toyota will have a sports crossover with a 250-horsepower engineFebruary 15, 2020
The hot version of the GR will get the all-terrain vehicle C-HR
Toyota intends to release a youth crossover C-HR, “charged” by the Gazoo Racing, reports Auto Express. The compact SUV will be equipped with a 250-horsepower “turbo-engine” of 1.6 liters, which made its debut on the Yaris GR rally hatchback. One of the main competitors of the model may be the 300-strong Volkswagen T-Roc R.
In addition to the powerful engine, the GR version C-HR crossover will acquire a sports suspension with new shock absorbers, more productive brakes and will be distinguished by an original body kit and decor in the cabin.
It is expected that the engineers of the Japanese company will attract specialists from the Toyota factory rally team to create “civilian” models, and in order to ensure driver involvement in the control process, the “hot” crossover will receive an uncontested 6-speed manual transmission.
Auto Express predicts Toyota C-HR GR is unlikely to enter the market before 2023. The actual crossover has been produced since 2016 and survived planned restyling last year, so it is possible that the “charged” version of the C-HR will appear only in the second-generation model.
Probably, at the same time as the Toyota C-HR GR crossover, a “hot” version of the Corolla soplatforme hatchback will enter the market. Toyota’s bestseller will be endowed with a драйвер driver ’character following the same recipe as an all-terrain vehicle, and Hyundai i30 N and Ford Focus ST are seen as competitors of the Corolla GR in the Land of the Rising Sun.
