No way Toyota will bring this to India. They are now a taxi or fleet vehicle maker in India with all products apart from the Crysta and Fortuner geared to commercial use.

Depressing situation from the world's biggest manufacturer.
Well said. As a matter of fact, Crysta is also a fleet vehicle only considering the number of corporate yellow boards that are running in!

What India and Indians need is RAV4 to place it between Innova and Fortuner!

There exists a gap between Innova and Fortuner, which can easily be filled with a 2.0 RAV4, Petrol and Diesel.

RUSH will be a mini innova compared to RAV4. RAV4 comes in a 5 and 7 seating configurations, but 5 seater would be an ideal to take on the likes of Compas, Tiguan, Q3 etc.

CHR can prove to be an expensive proposal for indian market, and it has all the chances of going the Etios way, failure!

CHR in EU comes with a 1.2 Turbo engine, which could be the best way forward in case Bharat Toyota wants to launch it.

Toyota needs to get better engines to India. They have the under-powered D-4-D on most of their vehicles (of course it is awesome in the Innova Crysta) and there is news that Toyota will use Suzuki's 1.5 L mill in the new Corolla.

Toyota should invest in better engines

Toyota's CHR again spied in India – Testing hybrid tech for future cars in India?

Quote:
All-new Toyota Corolla with hybrid powertrain, also based on TNGA platform will be launched India before C-HR. The test mule could in fact be testing components rather than the run being a launch prep.
Quote:
Maruti announced that the company is already testing 50 such vehicles in India. The cities where these vehicles are being tested is Bangalore and Mumbai. It is very much possible that the CHR we see in the image above, is a test mule to test future hybrid technology for Maruti and Toyota cars.

Thanks to spb for sending these images in. Heartfelt gratitude for sharing it with other enthusiasts via this Team-BHP page!

The C-HR was spotted parked at an underground parking lot. The photos are taken in such a way to keep out the logo of the company testing the car in India.

You just need to check the other car in first picture to know where it was spotted

The black sedan in the background has an interesting logo The JDM Wagon R (Heartect based) behind the C-HR is an interesting vehicle too.


The C-HR is not coming to India, Maruti & Toyota will tango to use the Heartect chassis for future launches, certainly, the C-HR with its slide-like roofline and small windows won't cut it here. The SUV market is primarly diesel, and the C-HR doesn't have that option either.


Safely ignore any speculations of the C-HR or HR-V coming to India.

Actually it is being tested for the Hybrid adaptions to future Suzuki - Toyota cars for India.

It's not Toyota. As you can see it's KA-51 plates and Continental written on the sides.

IT's next to my office in E-city. See it everyday being driven around sans camouflage.

Continental have imported it for themselves and I don't think it is anything for Toyota.

My friend Deepak from Bangalore spotted this. Now since this is with camouflage. What are the chances that Toyota is considering it for India?

Camouflaged Toyota C-HR spotted in Bengaluru, but is it coming to India?

Toyota has a couple of options here.

Quote:
It could wait for Maruti Suzuki to bring out is next-generation SUV, repurposing it to fight the Creta and the Seltos with a well-priced product.

Secondly, it could introduce the C-HR as a CKD or CBU for Toyota lovers, achieving a new entry-level hybrid model below the Camry.

CBU won’t undergo any camouflaged tests. I believe this would be CKD. I hope but hardly believe that this is locally manufactured.
