It is about time we took a thorough, in-depth look at the new Toyota C-HR, a fancy new crossover the Japanese company announced and unveiled with very little fuss. The thing is though, the C-HR looks like it could become a huge hit, what with the looks and the fine specs, and so it deserves a bit more attention.
Still, the thing is scheduled to hit the showrooms next spring as a 2018 model and we will definitely hear more about it until then. For now let’s have a good look at the unusual Toyota C-HR better in these nice videos by Alaatin who decided to film this in his native language rather than English:
We have already discussed the details of the UK-spec Toyota C-HR in our first report on the production version of the car. So here let us talk a little about the U.S. version. The American C-HR will launch in two XLE and XLE Premium grades, each equipped with a long list of standard premium features that includes 18-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control, supportive bucket seating, 7-inch audio display, and Toyota Safety Sense package.
The highlights of the interior include leather-wrapped multi-function steering wheel, 7 inch central display, 4.2 inch instrument display, power fold and heated mirrors; auto-dimming rearview mirror with backup camera; electric parking brake; and dual-zone climate control. The Premium adds to that Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert; heated front seats; power lumbar driver’s seat; auto fold, heated side mirrors with puddle lamps that project “Toyota C-HR”; fog lamps; and Smart Key with Push Button Start.
Powering the 2018 C-HR is a 144 horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder mated to a CVT transmission.
