Toyota is starting from scratch in the hot-selling compact SUV segment, so there’s a lot riding on the all-new C-HR which has been confirmed for local launch next February.

Featuring edgy styling and an 85kW/185Nm turbocharged 1.2-litre engine, the all-new C-HR is being sourced from Japan and while Toyota hasn’t confirmed local pricing, a sub-$25,000 starting sticker is needed to take-on the likes of Nissan Qashqai and Mazda CX-3.

Underneath is Toyota’s configurable GA-C global chassis architecture which allows the powerplant to sit low and with a rearwards angle – facilitating the hip low bonnet line.

C-HR will hit Toyota dealerships in either front-drive or all-wheel-drive.

While AWD versions will run a CVT automatic transmission, the front-driver will score a new six-speed manual transmission with automatic rev-matching throttle-blip downchanges.

And the AWD model will be the range-topping ‘Koba’ model (the CH-R’s chief engineer is Hiroyuki Koba).

Across both variants specifications are impressive with inclusions such as radar-based active cruise control and autonomous emergency braking as well as lane departure warning.

Mazda currently leads the compact SUV sales race with the CX-3, but Mitsubishi ASX, Nissan Qashqai and Honda HR-V are also right in the mix…over to you Toyota C-HR.
