The GR family will grow at Toyota. The very recent GR Supra is now well installed, the GR Yaris is approaching, but the GR Corolla and the GR C-HV are still in the planning stage. But they should see the light of day soon.
The Toyota GR Yaris is talking about it. With its all-wheel drive system, its 1.6-liter turbo 3-cylinder with 268 horsepower, she is the envy of many. But she may soon have siblings. We were talking to you a little while ago about a possible GR Corolla but the compact SUV in the range, the C-HR, may well be entitled too.
Like the GR Corolla, the Toyota GR C-HR should use the 1.6-liter three-cylinder turbocharged gasoline engine that powers the new GR Yaris. As in the possible GR Corolla, the block will certainly be deflated if it were to be taken under the hood of the C-HR.
Currently, the classic Toyota C-HR has a 2.0-liter four-cylinder delivering modestly 144 horsepower. It could therefore increase its power by a few hundred horses. Other improvements like new shock absorbers, improved brakes and lighter alloy wheels will also appear on the future supercharged C-HR.
In Europe, this high-performance SUV will compete with the Volkswagen T-Roc R. Potentially, it could also be a more affordable alternative to BMW X2 M35i and Mercedes-AMG GLA 35. Finally, it could be a rival to the possible Hyundai Kona N. The Toyota GR C-HR should be marketed in Europe from 2023: we still have time to find some additional information by then.
