Toyota’s showing off a new, fun to drive crossover concept in Paris, hinting at a new hybrid powertrain and future design language.

Called the C-HR Concept, this car is said to combine the original late-90s RAV4 with the Prius and the GT86 (Scion FR-S). This mix-tape of Toyota vehicles comes on an entirely new platform, and while the powertrain details are limited, we do know the dimensions: the C-HR is 171.3-inches long, 72.8-inches wide and 59 inches tall.

The new, aggressive look is dubbed “diamond architecture styling.” This hints at a new styling theme and future design direction for Toyota vehicles.
