C-HR, Toyota’s sharply styled new compact crossover, will debut in the UK with an 11-model range priced on-the-road from £20,995.
Order books open at the beginning of October for the much-anticipated new model, which will be available with a choice of 1.2 petrol turbo petrol and 1.8 VVT-i full hybrid powertrains. The turbo version will be offered in front and all-wheel drive formats, with a choice of six-speed manual and CVT automatic transmissions. AWD versions will start at £26,495.
Prices for the hybrid versions are from £23,595, all of which feature front-wheel drive and an electronic CVT transmission.
At launch, C-HR will be offered in three equipment grades: Icon, Excel and Dynamic. The Icon specification will include dual-zone automatic air conditioning, 17-inch alloys, the Toyota Touch 2 touchscreen controlled multimedia system, front fog lamps, rain-sensing windscreen wipers and an auto-dimming rear-view mirror.
The Excel trim puts the emphasis on sophistication and refinement, with additional technology and comfort features. These include part-leather seat upholstery, heated front seats, smart (keyless) entry, parking sensors and Intelligent Park Assist, rear privacy glass, 18-inch alloys, a folding function for the door mirrors and a complement of driver assistance safety features including a Blind Spot Monitor, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and Lane Change Assist. Upgraded Toyota Touch 2 also provides satellite navigation and access to on-line services.
The C-HR Dynamic models add extra appeal for customers who value high design quality and innovation. They come as standard with metallic paint with a contrast black roof, a grade-specific 18-inch alloy design, privacy glass, LED headlights and fog lights and a bespoke upholstery fabric.
All C-HR models will benefit from Toyota Safety Sense, a package of active features that can alert the driver to collision risks and intervene if necessary to avoid an impact, or mitigate the consequences if an accident is unavoidable. These elements include a Pre-Collision System with autonomous emergency braking, Lane Departure Warning, Traffic Sign Recognition and Automatic High Beam headlight operation.
Further pricing details are available on Toyota.co.uk. Further details, including full equipment specifications, performance data and additional pricing information will be announced in the coming weeks.
Toyota will present the production-ready C-HR at the Paris motor show later this month, ahead of the start of production in October. First deliveries to UK customers are expected in January 2017.
