Toyota C-HR may get “charged” version of GR with the motor from the Yaris GR

The Japanese manufacturer may submit a “heated” version of its SUV the C-HR until 2023.

Last fall, the Japanese company introduced the restyled SUV Toyota C-HR. One of the main innovations is the emergence of a hybrid version (like on the home market and in Europe). In addition, in Japan after the update became available “Sportivnaya” version called the GR Sport, it was created toyotascion division Gazoo Racing. This option has some differences from the “normal” option, but the motor in it. Now reflect on the issue of execution GR C-HR, but with a different “filling”.

According to AutoExpress, Toyota GR C-HR could borrow a motor from another sports model versions of the brand – Yaris GR. This hot three-door hatchback is equipped with inline three-cylinder turbo engine G16E-GTS with direct fuel injection. Its volume is 1.6 liters, and the return – 272 HP (maximum torque of 370 Nm). It is expected that this same motor will go under the hood “charged” version of the Corolla GR. Thus, the manufacturer can recoup the costs of development of “stuffing” for sportivnogo. According to preliminary data from sports GR-versions of the C-HR and deforsiruyut Corolla engine to about 250 HP

The Yaris in a couple of this engine is a six-speed “mechanics”. It is likely that future sports C-HR and Corolla will also be only available manual transmission. The maximum speed of the three-door hatchback is limited by electronics on a mark of 230 km/h and acceleration to “hundreds” this car needs less than 5.5 seconds. Likely other models with the same “stuffing” will be less dynamic because of the greater weight.

In Japan, the current “heated” version of the C-HR GR Sport is equipped with the standard “filling”: 116-strong petrol turbo engine capacity of 1.2 liters, as well as the 122-HP hybrid setup in the 1.8-liter “aspirated” and an electric motor. The hybrid version is offered with an Electromechanical continuously variable transmission, and the diesel – with six-speed “mechanics”. The drive in “sportivnoy” version is just the front (although the usual cross is and all-wheel drive).

According to the publication, sport SUV GR C-HR should be out until 2023. However, it’s unclear whether he will appear in the current generation model or will be developed in the next generation, which should appear closer to the end of 2021. In its basis the platform TNGA (it is now based the model range Toyota).

It is assumed that the “charged” crossover of the Toyota brand in the European market will compete with introduced last year, Volkswagen T-Roc R as well as the upcoming Hyundai Kona N and Ford Puma ST.

Recall, Toyota introduced the “normal” Yaris fourth generation in the autumn of 2019, the start of sales of cars in Japan is scheduled for February 2020. A hot three-door hatch with the addition of GR to the title was declassified last month at the exhibition Tokyo Auto Salon.
