Toyota C-HR Hy-Power Concept has finally broken cover on the first day of the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. This high-performance hybrid version of the crossover has been designed by Toyota’s European Design Centre (ED2) in the South of France. The tweaked design and styling highlights the vehicle’s masculine and powerful appearance. It also hints at the future expansion of Toyota’s hybrid powertrain line up.
Based on the brand’s ‘diamond architecture’ theme, the Toyota C-HR Hy-Power Concept carries fine design details reflecting its muscular appearance and powerful hybrid nature. The new Dark Carbon Silver paint with a matte finish highlights the sharp creases and deeply sculpted surfaces. You will also see lots of gloss black elements on the lower front lip spoiler, just above the signature moniker and wheel arch trims. The headlamps, 20-inch alloy wheels and window frames have Dark chrome effect. Check Out – Toyota C-HR Exterior & Interior Photo Story
The contrast anodised Burning Orange finish on the door mirror housings, front pillars and an accent bar within the headlamps further accentuate its sporty appearance. The lower grille with black diamond mesh pattern also gets colour highlight. Other styling elements include LED headlamps with high-tech 3D daytime running lights, round-shaped grille, flared wheel arches, coupe-like roof and an aero-inspired floaring taillamp clusters.

Technical details of the hybrid crossover are still under wraps. Though, Toyota has revealed that the C-HR Hy-Power Concept is more powerful than the 122 DIN hp system of the existing global-spec C-HR. This concept has been designed around the new hybrid powertrain. Reports suggest that it might share its hybrid engine technology with the new-generation Prius sedan. The premium saloon features a 1.8-litre VVTi petrol engine paired to an electric motor delivering a combined power of 121bhp.
Just so you know, the C-HR had its global debut at the Geneva Motor Show previous year. Speculations are on rife that the C-HR crossover might make its way to India as well. Though, the carmaker hasn’t yet confirmed the same.
