The Japanese are back at it again. Aiming to mercilessly takeover the Crossover market with this radical Toyota C-HR that will sit on the all new modular TNGA platform which further pushes the companies strategy to create “ever-better cars” according to Toyota.
Derived from a strategy that focuses on bringing entertainment to the economy segment was a move that should hail more revenue for Toyota, especially since they have this boring economy image they are trying to shake off for a while. Just look at Nissan, they have the GT-R, the FT-86 simply doesn’t cut it anymore.
Although we aren’t talking about the new 2018 Supra yet. The Toyota C-HR promises radical changes from the underpinnings to the interior design. Boring is a word that shouldn’t even be associated with the C-HR, with shorter wheelbase and wider rear and front tracks it might be onto something.
The interesting part about the TNGA-C platform is that it provides great low center of gravity, making it the lowest in its class compared to other rivals. This gives the CH-R driver a sporty feeling while seated, it also provides better handling and less body roll.
It’s also 65-percent more rigid than the previous C-segment architecture. Suspension components include a McPherson strut design with larger diameter anti-roll bars to reduce body roll paired with a double wishbone setup.
