The production version of the Toyota C-HR concept has been leaked ahead of its official reveal at the Geneva motor show next week.

Leaked pictures, published on an American news website, confirm the Nissan Juke rival has stayed true to the design philosophy of the concept, with the five-door crossover flaunting bulging arches, angular lights and a coupé-like roofline.

The new model is based on Toyota’s New Global Architecture (TNGA), which is shared with the Prius, and makes use of hybrid power.

Toyota previously said it would be the first hybrid in this class, though it is not yet known if a conventionally powered alternative will be offered. The C-HR is expected to be powered by a four-cylinder powerplant for its internal combustion engine, paired with a CVT gearbox and an electric motor. It will sit below the RAV4 in Toyota's range.

A racing version of the C-HR has also been revealed, and will race at the Nürburgring endurance event this May.

When it goes on sale, the C-HR will rival crossovers like the Fiat 500X, Jeep Renegade, Mazda CX-3 and Nissan Juke.

Will there be any rear three

Will there be any rear three-quarter vision at all? it reminds me of the Datsun 100a coupe....

Hybrid?

A Prius-based hybrid drivetrain would be a welcome addition to the compact crossover range. Too often these vehicles have poor fuel consumption for their size, probably because they're too heavy.

The styling looks like mishmash between a Honda HRV, Nissan Juke and Lexus NX. Striking, yes; handsome, not quite. I'm digging those rear door handles though, Alfa used to put them up in the C-pillar on the 147 and 156. Great way to confuse the heck out of your passengers.

rear view

The view out the back window will be awful, worse than supercars which is just plain wrong
