The Los Angeles auto show is about to happen this month where the 2018 Toyota C-HR will be revealed in the brand’s own stall.
It is also expected that Toyota will discuss more details about the car’s performance, availability and pricing.
The 2018 Toyota C-HR was first launched at the Geneva Motor show in the month of March this year. Ever since its announcement, it has kept car lovers excited. The model was once again teased at the Paris motor show before coming to the Los Angeles auto expo this month. The year is coming close to an end and all major manufacturers are showcasing their next gen models. Many of them will be available in stores in the first half of 2017 or probably towards the end of the year.
While we do have a good idea of what Toyota is planning with the revamped C-HR model, the one that is heading to the United States still remains a mystery. The auto brand will have specific modifications based on the region in which the C-HR gets launched. There has been a lot of speculation going around but the actual design and the powertrains heading to the U.S. soil remains unknown.
A prototype of the 2018 Toyota C-HR was earlier spotted testing in the roads. If we are to go by the camouflaged design of the car, it is easy to say that it looks a lot like the European version of the compact crossover. The sleek appearance is complemented by truncated rear, body lines and a slim shape but the lights look different, based on a newly launched teaser image. You can check it out in here!
The C-HR is powered by a 1.8-liter hybrid engine in other regions. It uses a powertrain that is a mix of gasoline powered engine and an electric motor. The particular powertrain offers up to 122 horsepower while a more powerful 2.0-liter engine delivers up to 150 horsepower. The same powertrains may not be available when the new C-HR gets launched in the United States due to emission restrictions and a lot of other factors that varies from one state to another.
The LA Expo is slated to begin on November 17th where the 2018 Toyota C-HR will compete against at least a dozen similar compact crossover models including the Nissan Juke, Honda HR-V, Mazda’s CX-3 and Jeep’s Renegade. It is easily one of the most competitive segments in the automobile industry where customers have too many choices to pick from.
