CARS.COM — Toyota will dive into the hot subcompact SUV market in the spring with the 2018 C-HR (for Coupe-High Rider) that’s more akin to the sporty Nissan Juke than the utilitarian Honda HR-V among subcompact SUV rivals. The production version was unveiled for the U.S. at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show, where the concept version was shown a year ago under the departed Scion brand.
The concept’s wild styling hasn’t lost much in its translation to the production model, including its deep, angular sculpting and the aggressively pinched rear end that gives it a coupe-like profile. The power may be tamer than the looks, however, with a 144-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-cylinder mated to a continuously variable automatic transmission. The interior has seats for five and a tablet-style 7-inch touchscreen.
