The Toyota C-HR Concept that was first unveiled at the 2014 Paris Motor Show in 3-door format and later in a closer to production, 5-door format at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show (2015 IAA), is set to hit the global markets next year. The company is already testing the production model on the public roads and plans to unveil it at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show in March. The production model would be a 5-door sub-compact crossover.
The 2016 Toyota C-HR sub-compact crossover will be built in multiple locations globally, as per a report from Nikkei. The JDM-spec model will be manufactured in Miyagi Prefecture in Japan. The Euro-spec model will be built in Turkey, likely in the Adapazari plant in Sakarya where the Toyota Corolla and Toyota Verso are made. Production in both plants will commence in Fall 2016. From 2018, production will expand to Thailand and China.
The Toyota C-HR will be based on the new Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) modular platform that was first used by the fourth generation 2016 Toyota Prius. Following the Geneva Motor Show world debut, it will likely go on sale by H2 2016 in first markets including Germany and the UK.
U.S. and Canada would get the C-HR under the Scion badge, probably as a 2017 model year.
