By James Yu , Nov 05, 2016 09:28 AM EDT

Toyota's Subcompact Crossover is among the most awaited segments from the Japanese vehicle brand. In a just a few short weeks, the 2018 Toyota C-HR will finally be making its debut at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show. Toyota enthusiasts will surely have a lot to look forward with this new introduction.

No Details Yet For The North American Version

Unfortunately, details released about the North American-spec Toyota C-HR has been pretty minimal. As reported by Driving, the company has been very mum about what configuration the vehicle will carry revealing only its rear tail light section in a teaser image showed to the public.

2018 Toyota C-HR's European Counterpart

Before its 2016 LA Auto Show debut, a European version of Toyota C-HR has appeared in March earlier this year at the Geneva Motor Show as reported by CNET. This iteration carries a turbocharged engine capable of 133 horsepower which also has a variant of a hybrid powertrain. The turbo engine also has a manual transmission option though this will not likely be offered for the U.S. version. In the same report, CNET noted that a 2.0-liter engine with a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) as the sole gearbox is more likely to be found in the US-bound 2018 Toyota C-HR.

Limited Details Spark Interests

As mentioned, information about the 2018 Toyota C-HR bound for the U.S. market has not been overwhelming and is pretty limited. This could be a marketing ploy in order to build car enthusiasts' anticipation for the vehicle's upcoming 2016 LA Auto Show debut. With the Toyota C-HR rising excitement and other notable car manufacturers' planned reveal of their new offers, the popular auto show is turning out to be an event of the season, something that should not be missed by anyone, auto fans or fans-alike.
