TOYOTA’S POPULAR HYBRID SUV RECEIVES CHOICE OF HYBRID POWERTRAINS, NEW MULTIMEDIA AND UPRATED RIDE AND HANDLING
- New 2.0-litre 182bhp hybrid with uprated suspension joins 1.8-litre 120bhp hybrid
- New multimedia system with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™
- Visual refinement to front and rear designs
The new Toyota C-HR hybrid arrives with a choice of hybrid powertrains, a new multimedia system, handling improvements and design enhancements which further refine its bold look.
C-HR has been a big hit in the UK with a mix of engaging driving dynamics, hybrid efficiency and stand-out design helping the SUV to an impressive 8.3 per cent segment share in Britain.
Now C-HR will also benefit from Toyota’s ground-breaking twin hybrid powertrain option.
Joining the 120bhp 1.8-litre hybrid system is a new, more powerful 182bhp 2.0-litre hybrid to give customers a choice of powertrains to suit their driving style. CO2 emissions start from 86g/km for the 1.8-litre system and from 92g/km for the 2.0-litre (NEDC correlated).
Additionally, the new Toyota C-HR is equipped with a new multimedia system that includes Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ smartphone integration.
The new Toyota C-HR remains true to the visual identity which has made it such a success. The coupe-like lines create a bold style that continues to stand out. Both front and rear have received detailed attention, bringing added refinement to the shape, while a painted lower lip reinforces a strong, wide and elevated stance.
Front lights are upgraded to premium LED technology, with the daytime running lights and indicators combined in one frontal projector that emits a single smooth line above the main beam. At the rear, the new combi lights are connected by a gloss black spoiler creating a single clean shape.
Dynamic upgrades include modified electric power steering tuning for improved steering feel. The 2.0-litre hybrid also benefits from a new suspension design that improves ride comfort while retaining the Toyota C-HR’s excellent handling capabilities. All variants also feature an upgraded package to further reduce cabin noise.
The new C-HR includes a new multimedia system that upgrades Toyota’s connectivity offer, allowing full smartphone integration and supporting the latest versions of Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. It also enables ‘over the air’ map updates to allow customers to access the latest versions of European road maps with ease.
Prices in the UK for new C-HR start from £25,625 for the entry-level Icon model. Customers can also choose from Design, Excel and Dynamic grades, all available with either 1.8 or new 2.0-litre hybrid powertrains. The range-topping “Orange Edition” rounds off the line up.
