A new version of the Toyota C - HR Concept compact crossover makes its world debut at the 2015 Frankfurt motor show, marking a further step towards a production model that will be revealed in Geneva next spring.

Toyota will reveal two vehicles at the opposite ends of the size spectrum during the Frankfurt Motor Show this September. The new Land Cruiser will make its world premiere alongside a special C-HR concept.

  EV in Red: Volkswagen I.D. Crozz II Concept Gets a Makeover EV in Red: Volkswagen I.D. Crozz II Concept Gets a Makeover Volkswagen wants everyone to know that it's going electric. The brand rolled out its I.D. EV hatchback concept last year, the I.D. Buzz EV van concept back in January, and the I.D. Crozz EV crossover concept at the Shanghai auto show this past Spring. For VW's home auto show in Frankfurt it evidently ran out of new EV show cars, so it gave the I.D. Crozz a quick color change and some styling tweaks to turn it into the I.D. Crozz II.

Toyota plans to occupy two ends of the SUV spectrum with its two global debuts at the 2017 Frankfurt motor show. The Japanese automaker announced a new Toyota Land Cruiser and a Toyota C - HR hybrid concept will be revealed at the show.

Unfortunately, Toyota is saying very little on what to expect from the new large SUV. But rest assured it will maintain its body-on-frame construction that separates it from the sea of crossovers on the market. "The new Land Cruiser will take you wherever you want to go. And bring you back," Toyota says cryptically in a press release.

The current-generation Land Cruiser debuted for the 2008 model year here in the U.S. As we noted in our most recent review, the model has aged gracefully and continues to impress with its smooth powertrain, controlled ride, and exceptional off-road capability. The SUVfeatures a 5.7-liter V-8 engine producing 381 hp, enough to go from 0-60 mph in 6.8 seconds, according to Motor Trend tests.

Toyota will also reveal a C-HR design concept vehicle in Frankfurt. Judging from this teaser image, a future C-HRmodelcould feature a moreaggressive design than the standard version, and possibly increased performance. "Its intention is to emphasize C-HR's emotional and powerful look, while hinting at future expansion of Toyota's hybrid powertrain line up within its core models," the automaker says. Toyota already has a hybrid C-HR in global markets, so it will be interesting to find out what the company has up its sleeves with this model, dubbed the C-HR Hy-Power concept.

Pretty Tease: Kia Proceed Concept Is Yet Another Shapely Wagon Even if Kia won't admit it, it just rolled out one of the hottest station wagons in recent memory. It's called the Proceed concept, and it will be making its debut at the 2017 Frankfurt auto show. Tagged as an "elongated hot hatch," it's billed as a possible preview to the next-generation Kia Cee'd and Pro_cee'd. Unfortunately, neither of those vehicles is sold here in the United States, which means this is yet another tasty wagon likely to remain out of reach for Americans.
