At the recent 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show, Scion Vice President, Andrew Gilleland, revealed the new Scion C-HR Concept. C-HR stands for Compact size with High Ride height, which fits the new Scion vehicle very well. Here are a few features and elements you can expect from the Scion C-HR.
Scion C-HR in a Category of its Own
Gilleland described the C-HR concept as a mixture of a variety of vehicle categories.
“It doesn’t fit neatly into any category, and that’s exactly why we and our customers think it’s perfect. It’s got 4 doors and a hatch …but it’s not a hatchback. It’s large …with room for 5 …but it’s not an SUV. And it’s got a fast-sloping roofline …but it’s not a sports car. I guess you could say it crosses over into many segments …or even that it’s in a class by itself.”

Design of the Scion C-HR
The Scion C-HR concept has an aggressive stance with bold exterior lines and contrasting features. Take a look at a few pictures of the new model to catch a glimpse of its exterior design.
Scion C-HR Drivability
The Scion C-HR prioritizes driving comfort, responsive handling, and precise steering for a unique driving experience. The C-HR is built on the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform, which focuses on a more rigid body, a lower center of gravity, and a brand new double-wishbone rear suspension for improved handling. Needless to say, the Scion C-HR is fun to drive!
Gilleland announced the Scion C-HR should be available to drivers in the near future, so you will be able to get behind the wheel of this new Scion vehicle in no time! Stay tuned for more information about the C-HR concept.
