Toyota's 2018 C-HR will compete in the growing subcompact SUV category as a lifestyle-oriented crossover with a stylish, sporty look and an eye toward safety.

The C-HR, which stands for Coupe High-Rider, debuted on Nov. 17 ahead of the Los Angeles Auto Show at the AutoMobility trade show. Despite its name, the vehicle has five doors.

A 2.0L four-cylinder engine powers the vehicle. It produces 144 hp and 140 lb.-ft. of torque, and sends power to a front-wheel drivetrain through a continuously variable transmission.

Toyota will offer the C-HR in two trim grades, including the XLE and XLE Premium with standard equipment that includes 18-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control, bucket seating, a 7-inch audi display, and the Toyota Safety Sense P (TSS-P) package.

In addition to TSS-P, the vehicle includes 10 standard airbags, standard Hill-Start Assist Control (HAC) and rear backup camera, as well as available Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, which are only available on the XLE Premium grade.

The vehicle is based on a concept car Toyota first showed two years ago. It will arrive at dealerships in the spring.
