LA LIVE: Scion C-HR concept
Essentially a re-badged Toyota concept, the C-HR previews Scion\'s first-ever crossover.
Scion has trekked out to the annual Los Angeles Motor Show to introduce its own version of the Toyota C-HR concept.
The C-HR concept displayed in the City of Angels is absolutely identical to the eponymous Toyota concept that was shown earlier this year in Frankfurt save for a black and red paint job, brand-specific 21-inch alloy wheels, and, of course, Scion emblems on both ends. The two models wear a futuristic design highlighted by a tall front end with swept-back headlights, pronounced wheel arches, a low roof line, and huge C-shaped tail lamps.
Scion explains the C-HR's cabin is inspired by a diamond with sheered sides, but pictures of the cockpit weren't included with the company's press release.
Scion openly admits the C-HR concept will spawn its first-ever entry into the booming crossover segment. Set to fight head-to-head against the Nissan Juke, the yet-unnamed soft-roader will likely be introduced next April at the New York Motor Show, and it will go on sale shortly after as a 2017 model. It's expected to carry a base price of approximately $20,000.
