This latest concept looks like the love child of the FNR and Toyota’s kooky new C-HR crossover.
For its follow-up act at the 2017 Shanghai auto show, Chevy offers a glimpse into a more near-term future with the attractive FNR-X plug-in-hybrid crossover concept which, despite its inelegant name, appears to be more suitable for production.
Two years ago at the Shanghai auto show, Chevrolet wowed the crowd with its futuretastic FNR (“Find New Roads”) concept car that was bad-ass in every way (except for being fully autonomous).
From the original FNR, the FNR-X has inherited its high-mounted recessed headlamps and a bit of an underbite, with its hexagonal grille jutting forward at its lower edge.
The FNR-X was designed by GM’s Pan Asia Technical Automotive Center (PATAC) and, as it turns out, is strictly conceptual according to a U.S.-based spokesperson.

These modes modify the car’s suspension and handling profile from its adaptive suspension that adjusts ground clearance.
Inside the FNR-X Concept, it has a six separate infotainment screen that has a similar shape of the grille which is one of the cabin’s many hexagonal elements.
