For both carmakers and enthusiasts, the Geneva Motor Show is the first major event of the year to showcase new models and concepts to entice and excite the public.
Amongst the new designs on display, Toyota showed off vehicles due to be coming to the range in 2016: a new compact SUV, the C-HR; the new Proace Verso MPV; and the latest update to the Hilux pick-up. Also displayed was the innovative KIKAI concept, which celebrates the beauty of mechanical engineering.
This stand out model is built on the flexible Toyota New Global Architecture and incorporates Toyota’s renowned hybrid technology to create an efficient powertrain. With the bigger build but coupe-like design, it has a low centre of gravity, meaning it will stick close to the road and will handle very well.
The new Proace Verso is Toyota’s new venture into the MPV market, and is a spacious, multifunctional, multi-length vehicle that is ideal for families and groups. With the ability to carry up to nine people, the Proace Verso comes in a range of trims, and is the latest model to feature Toyota Safety Sense - ensuring that everyone on board is as protected as they can be.
The new Hilux is wider, longer and taller than the previous model, leaving more space in the flat bed and cabin, and is available with a Single, Extra or Double Cab body. Added to this new version is a brand new ladder-frame chassis, which is stronger and more durable than the previous chassis, and with the updated all-wheel drive system, this new version will go anywhere.
With the new, more efficient diesel range also fitted to the Hilux, this new version will have Start/Stop technology, helping to make it one of the most economic in its class.
All three vehicles will be available to order later this year. To find out more about the C-HR and to register your interest, click here: https://www.inchcapetoyota.co.uk/cars/toyota-range/c-hr/
