The styling deal will act as the flagship design for the regular-issue C-HR vary, offering competitiveness for the Nissan Juke Tekna+ and Volkswagen T-Roc R-Line.

We hope that the jazzed-up GR Sport will start later on this year. The design need to be quite quick for Toyota to develop, as it calls for only small improvements to the crossover’s human body and interior. It need to also establish to be as successful as the firm’s present GR Sport models – the two of which have relished revenue success in the Uk.

Like the Corolla GR Sport, potential buyers need to also get a pair of sports seats and a reupholstered interior.

As the C-HR GR Sport is a purely beauty trim deal, it’ll be offered with the crossover’s regular vary of engines. Prospective buyers will be offered a option of two four-cylinder hybrid powertrains – both a 120bhp 1.8-litre or a 181bhp two.-litre device.
