Toyota will unveil three new models at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, including the long-awaited production version of its striking C-HR Concept.
The company will also reveal the new Proace Verso large-size MPV and its latest version of the legendary Hilux pickup.
The C-HR is Toyota’s first foray in the growing C-segment crossover market and is aiming to be a serious rival to the Nissan Juke.
The concept combines a 5-door coupe body onto an elevated SUV style cabin and its dramatic styling is designed to represent the new face of Toyota. Toyota has said that it will be released in the middle of 2016.
The Proace Verso is Toyota’s version of the Citroen Space Tourer and Peugeot Traveller (both of which will be unveiled at the show) and is capable of carrying nine people and is available in three different body lengths 4.6m, 4.95m or 5.3m.
Like its Peugeot and Citroen cousins, all versions feature 4,900-litres of boot space with the back seats down and are likely to get Lane Departure Warning, Active Cruise Control, Collision Alert and Active Safety Braking as part of a comprehensive safety package.
The Proace Verso is expected to share the Traveller’s 94hp and 113hp 1.6-litre diesel engines, which return 51.3mpg and 55.3mpg respectively in the Peugeot.
The Traveller’s 2.0-litre diesel engines in 148hp and 178hp form are also expected to be available as well.
The new edition of the legendary Hilux will have its European debut in Geneva.
An entirely new design, it is built upon a new and even stronger ladder-frame chassis and comes equipped with new and more efficient 2.4-litre and 2.8-litre D-4D diesel engines.
The existing 2.5-litre D-4D diesel unit and an improved version of the Dual VVT-i 2.7-litre petrol engine from the existing model will be carried over.
Toyota expects that these new additions will continue the Hilux’s famous reputation for durability and reliability.
All three cars will be unveiled at Toyota’s stand at next week’s Geneva Motor Show.
