Toyota has shown more than one concept version of the C-HR compact crossover, and now a source close to Toyota tells us that the production C-HR finally will be revealed at the Detroit auto show in January.

Scion C-HR concept

The C-HR debuted as a design study at the 2014 Paris auto show, followed by a more-production-ready four-door concept at the Frankfurt show earlier this year. Most recently, it appeared at the L.A. auto show (as seen above), this time with a Scion badge. The vehicle’s size means that its main markets will be Europe and Japan, but it will also be sold in North America—thus the U.S. debut.

-

Japan’s biggest carmaker might have made a late start into the compact SUV market with the C-HR, but it hopes to catch up quickly with a sharp-looking crossover that offers two powertrain variations: a turbocharged gasoline engine and, yes, a hybrid.

-

The hybrid is the same 1.8-liter unit fitted to the new Prius, which stands to reason since the C-HR rides on the same platform, Toyota’s New Global Architecture (TNGA). Total system output will be 121 horsepower, which is around 14-hp less than the Prius, although Toyota attributes the minor dip to a revision in how its Japanese engineers rate output. The engine and motor combination again puts power to the ground via a CVT. Toyota also will offer a 1.2-liter turbocharged gasoline engine, sourced from the Japan-market Auris. It’s rated at 114 horsepower and 136 lb-ft of torque. We’d expect a choice of front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, as per the category norm.

Although it will be known as a Toyota elsewhere, we expect that for the U.S. market, the C-HR will be sold as a Scion. Not only have we’ve seen it as a Scion, but the Scion brand is in desperate need of new product—a crossover in particular. We’ll know more about how Toyota/Scion plans to pitch the C-HR against the likes of the Nissan Juke and the Honda HR-V next month.
