The 2016 Geneva motor show has seen a feast of new Toyota models and concepts unveiled to the public. Read on to see the highlights.
Top billing has to go to the new production-ready Toyota C-HR, which points to a bold new design and engineering for Toyota; while the new 2016 Hilux showed what’s next for our legendary pick-up.
There was also a debut for the new Proace Verso, which see Toyota return to the MPV market; while the KIKAI concept presented a vision of a model that celebrates the beauty of mechanical engineering.
The Toyota C-HR will give us a new presence in the growing C-segment crossover market. Matching a 5-door coupé design to an elevated SUV-style cabin, it brings the promise of an engaging driving experience, combined with a contemporary high-riding driving position. Its dramatic styling represents a breakthrough in the segment, and shows the new face of Toyota.
C-HR stands for Coupe High Rider.
Toyota Proace Verso
The new Proace Verso is a spacious large-size MPV, ready to carry up to nine people and available in three different body lengths. With a host of advanced safety and convenience features, it is the ideal travel and leisure companion for families and groups. Like the C-HR, the Proace Verso allows Toyota to expand its range into a new part of the market.
The new Toyota Hilux has its European debut in Geneva. An entirely new design, it is built on a new and even stronger ladder-frame chassis. Equipped with a new and more efficient 2.4-litre D-4D engine, the Hilux is tougher than ever before, and is the ultimate embodiment of Toyota’s quality, durability and reliability.
