Scion CH-R

Ignition - - 1st Gear Auto Show -

Al­though Scion will be no more af­ter the 2016 model year ends in Au­gust, Toy­ota has con­firmed sev­eral Scions will carry on as Toy­otas, in­clud­ing the CH-R cross­over con­cept that was first re­vealed at the Los An­ge­les Auto Show last fall.

The CH-R, which stands for Compact High Ride height uses a five-door hatch lay­out that is de­signed for max­i­mum func­tion­al­ity.

Toy­ota ex­ecs hope it will ap­peal to ‘yuc­cies’ (their word, not mine) – young ur­ban cre­ative types who want a ve­hi­cle that taps into their sense of style and practicality.

Tech­ni­cal specs aren’t yet avail­able, but the pro­duc­tion ver­sion of the CH-R is slated to ar­rive in 2017 and will be built on Toy­ota’s New Global Ar­chi­tec­ture, which is be­ing used to de­velop new plat­forms and pow­er­trains.
