Toyota has registered a trademark for the “C-HR GR Sport” nameplate, suggesting the firm’s compact crossover will before long receive a sports-inspired trim-level. The styling offer will act as the flagship product for the normal-concern C-HR array, offering competition for the Nissan Juke Tekna+ and Volkswagen T-Roc R-Line.
Like Toyota’s existing Yaris GR Sport and Corolla GR Sport designs, the C-HR GR Sport will use the same mechanicals as the normal C-HR crossover, but it’ll element a sporty exterior styling offer inspired by the impending efficiency-concentrated 250bhp C-HR GR.
We hope that the jazzed-up GR Sport will start afterwards this calendar year. The product should really be relatively effortless for Toyota to develop, as it involves only nominal variations to the crossover’s entire body and inside. It should really also prove to be as worthwhile as the firm’s existing GR Sport designs – both of which have savored profits good results in the British isles.
Revisions about the normal-concern C-HR should really include things like wider front and rear bumpers, deeper facet skirts, more substantial alloy wheels, privacy glass and a pair of LED headlamps. Like the Corolla GR Sport, consumers should really also get a pair of sports seats and a reupholstered inside.
As the C-HR GR Sport is a purely beauty trim offer, it’ll be supplied with the crossover’s normal array of engines. Consumers will be supplied a option of two 4-cylinder hybrid powertrains – possibly a 120bhp one.8-litre or a 181bhp 2.-litre unit.
