Toyota's Qashqai rival should be expected in stores early next year and Toyota is saying it will stay close to the C-HR concept's ostentatious styling.
The latest small CUV into the game is expected to debut at Geneva in March of 2016, based on Toyota New Global Architecture.
Toyota claims that one of the larger benefits of TNGA is that it allows for enhanced interior space. Supposedly the Paris concept had similar interior space to the Qashqai despite being somewhat smaller.
New Toyota UK president Paul van der Burgh did say that “the high growth rate of sales of that sort of vehicle would be very good for us. The concept was excellent and the styling in particular stood out. If such a product were to launch, I’m confident it could be a best seller."
Considering the growth spurt the segment has gone through over the last 2 years we're surprised it took Toyota this long to reply...
