Will be inspired by the C-HR Concept.

According to a report on CarSensor, Toyota is working on a compact SUV which will be ready for a launch by March 2016. A concept previewing the design of this crossover was showcased at the 2014 Paris Motor Show by way of the Toyota C-HR concept, and the publication has used the same to base its rendering.

The compact SUV would be powered by a 1.2-liter turbocharged petrol engine in Europe.

The forthcoming Toyota compact SUV would measure about 4.4 meters in length, putting it in the same league as the Renault Duster and the Hyundai ix25. Its other dimensions would be 1,785 mm (width) and 1,560 mm (height).

For the European market, the compact SUV could be powered by a 1.2-liter turbocharged petrol engine, but four-cylinder diesel motors will also be on offer. A 6-speed manual gearbox and a CVT will be the transmissions of choice to send drive to the front wheels or to all wheels using a new 4WD system.

For the Indian market, Toyota does not offer a compact SUV at the moment, though TKM’s (Toyota Kirloskar Motor) managing director, Naomi Ishii, said that the company is considering this segment. According to sources, the next generation of the Toyota Rush would be developed keeping the Indian market’s diesel sentiment in mind.
