Toyota Has revealed that it is going to showcase three new models at the Geneva Auto Show. The three new models are the C-HR, the Proace Verso and the new Hilux. The Japanese automaker is poised to enter into new segments and fight it out in the existing segments with their new models.
The C-HR is the most expected of them all as there is hardly any information that is available. IT is based on the C-HR concept that is poised to help Toyota enter the C-segment crossover. Its likely competitors will be the Honda HR-V, the Hyundai Tuscon and the Renault Kadjar. The styling is expected to be dynamic and look like a 5-door coupe with a SUV-like ground clearance. The driving position is assumed to be high enough to provide good visibility and the drive experience should be sporty. According to Toyota, the styling on the C-HR is dramatic and represents a step forward for the segment and gives us an insight into their new design language.
The second model that will be showcased at the Geneva Motor Show is the new Proace Verso. It is built on the same platform as the Citroen Spacetourer and the Peugeot Traveller. The Verso is a spacious 9-seater MPV. The Verso is available in three different body lengths. It marks the entry of Toyota into the luxury MPV class. The Verso has the distinction of being the safest vehicle in its category.
The third model that will be showcased is the Toyota Hilux. It is a new model that is built on the chassis of the outgoing model and is expected to be stronger. The new Hilux gets a 2.4 I D-4D engine and is expected to be more efficient than the previous model.
We cannot wait to see them in the flesh on the first of March. Toyota will be hosted in Hall 4, so swing by to take a look at their new offerings.
