Toyota is jumping on the hybrid compact crossover bandwagon, coming with a competitor to Honda’s Vezel, the C-HR.

The company said it will present its new C-HR concept vehicle at the Paris motor show, revealing on October 2 the company’s vision for a compact crossover model.

Toyota stated the C-HR concept combines a powerful new design language with an engaging driving experience and a hybrid powertrain.

The vehicle will take center stage on the Toyota stand in hall 4 at the show.

Not much is known of the hybrid crossover, but the few indications we have are leading us to believe part of the mechanical components and the structure of the C-HR would be based on the Prius c / Yaris vehicles.

Paris will also host the first European appearance of the finalized exterior design of Toyota’s Fuel Cell Sedan, said the company, which is due to be launched in Europe next year.
