Toyota C-HR GR Sport Revealed

Toyota CHRGR 4

Now that the Gazoo Racing brand is almost established, it's keen to start tinkering with Toyota's lineup. The next model to get the GR treatment is the C-HR and the C-HR GR Sport is now official.

As you can see, it's gained quite the visual upgrade. There are also changes to the chassis to liven up the driving experience. There's a new bumper up front with a large grill, with GR Sport badges on the grille, front fenders and tailgate. Also thrown in are these attractive 19-inch dual-tone alloy wheels wrapped in 225/45 R19 rubber. Toyota says its new C-HR GR is available in 11 colours, including 5 2-tone schemes with black roof.

The Toyota C-HR GR Sport cabin gets a sports steering wheel wrapped in leather with silver stitching and a GR logo, as well as sporty seats with GR logos and aluminium pedals. Under the skin, the GR Sport treatment includes a centre brace to enhance rigidity, and a suspension package comprising coil springs, shock absorbers and stabilizers. The steering has been tuned for more responsiveness. The engine, a 1.2-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder with 85 kW and 185 Nm, is untouched.
