Toyota's hybrid Juke rival to be unveiled next week

Previewed by the C-HR concept car last year, Toyota says this will be a coupe-SUV crossover, smaller than the RAV4 and designed to be fun to drive rather than focusing on practicality as in its larger sibling.

The as-yet-unnamed crossover is expected to be a key user-chooser car, and will be available with a hybrid drivetrain likely to emit less than 100g/km CO2. Toyota says sales in the UK are expected to be similarly weighted towards the hybrid as they are in the Auris range, which is 56.8% hybrids in the UK.

Sales will begin in the summer, a similar launch date to Kia’s forthcoming hybrid-powered small crossover, the Niro.
