A Production Scion C-HR Should Makes Its Way to the NAIAS in Detroit Next Year

Toyota has shown more than one concept version of the C-HR compact crossover, and now a source close to Toyota tells us that the production C-HR finally will be revealed at the Detroit auto show in January.

The Scion C-HR Concept showed up at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show as a rebadged Toyota concept from Frankfurt, and formerly Paris as a design study, an idea pitch at a subcompact SUV crossover for the young and mjor city crowd.

At LA it got a very positive reception, but the crossover’s fate of being made still wasn’t in the bag. At the same Toyota doesn’t have a competitor to the Nissan Juke or Honda HR-V. But that should be no longer, with the rumor that C-HR will go into production.

The Toyota C-HR concept—as will, we assume, the production version—utilizes the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) that underpins the 2017 Prius, a vehicle that’s making its auto-show debut in Frankfurt next year.

Rumors have the engines for gas to include a turbocharged four and even a hybrid variant.

The hybrid will get the same 1.8L hybrid powerplant as the Prius, with a retuning to 121hp, 14hp less than the setup in the Prius.

A new 1.2L turbocharged four-banger is set to surface as well, sourced from the Japanese-spec Auris compact. It produces 114hp and 136 lb-ft of twist.

Traction? All-wheel and front-wheel are anticipated but we will know for sure when the party in Detroit starts next month.
