#10- Scion C-HR
Boldly styled, brash and definitely ready to take on the crossover game, the Scion C-HR was first introduced last year at the L.A. Auto show to rave first impressions. You’ll be happy to know that even though it won’t carry on as a Scion, Toyota will still use whatever debuts at Geneva in March 2016.
C-HR stands for Compact size and High Ride hight. With four doors and a hatch, the C-HR is the perfect first vehicle for first-time car buyers who don’t exactly want a subcompact (or compact) and can’t quite afford a traditional crossover.
Underpinning the body is Toyota’s New Global Architecture so you can expect a solid ride and good handling. Toyota says that the lower center of gravity and overall structure contributes to responsive handling and improved ride comfort.
Scion faces challenges from the Nissan Juke, Honda HR-V and Mazda CX-3. Up until the C-HR, Toyota didn’t have a youth offering. Now it does.
Just replace Scion with Toyota in the quote below and the word’s of Senior Vice President Andrew Gilleland still ring true.
"“The Scion C-HR will be a stand-out vehicle for us” said Gilleland. “Its styling will lead the way, but its substance will seal the deal. It’s got amazing driving dynamics, superb functionality, and, like all Scions, premium features at an accommodating price. There’s no doubt this will be the next iconic vehicle for Scion.”"
