The next-generation Toyota C-HR has been spotted for the first time, and it's already sporting its production-ready body. Spy photos taken at the Nurburgring reveal a fully camouflaged C-HR trial vehicle that closely resembles the Prologue concept, which previously hinted at the crossover's design direction.

While Toyota hasn't released many details about the new C-HR, it has confirmed that the model will offer more interior space, thanks to shorter overhangs and possibly a slightly longer wheelbase. Developed by Toyota's European Design Development center in southern France, the new C-HR aims to address previous criticisms, including the lack of cabin space. However, it should be noted that the new C-HR will not be available in the United States, where it was rated as the least satisfying car in a customer survey last year.

One significant development is the expected availability of a plug-in powertrain for the new C-HR, in addition to the self-charging hybrid technology offered by Toyota. While it's unclear if the prototype captured in the spy photos is a plug-in hybrid, a single port visible on the rear left fender suggests the possibility. Toyota promises that more details will be revealed soon, although an exact launch date has yet to be announced.
