The near-production concept previews the Chinese-spec Toyota C-HR.
Toyota has unveiled the Toyota Fengchao Way concept at Auto Shanghai 2017. The new concept is a restyled version of the second Toyota C-HR concept that was introduced at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA 2015).
Apart from the different colour scheme, the main changes on the Toyota Fengchao Way concept from the second Toyota C-HR Concept are the different grille design grille and headlamps. The Toyota C-HR has already reached the production stage and is on sale in other markets, but it still makes sense to have the C-HR concept in China. That's because, like the Toyota Corolla, both joint ventures (FTMS-Toyota and GAC-Toyota) will sell a version each of the Toyota C-HR.
The Toyota Fengchao Way concept previews the FAW-Toyota's C-HR. Chinese media report that this version won't differ much from the global C-HR and that production will start in 2018. The GAC-Toyota's version of the Toyota C-HR will have slightly different design and sell under a different name.
Toyota will likely offer the Toyota C-HR in the 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol (6-MT/CVT) and 1.8-litre petrol-electric hybrid (e-CVT) models.
