Toyota’s C-HR crossover has undergone its first important updates since its launch in 2016. Well-established as one of the brand’s best-selling models in the UK, it now boasts an all-hybrid line-up and benefits from new equipment features and dynamic improvements.

It follows the new Corolla in adopting Toyota’s dual hybrid strategy, giving customers the choice of a new-generation 1.8-litre hybrid system or a more powerful, all-new 2.0-litre powertrain.

Engines and performance

The new C-HR is unique in its class in giving customers the choice of two different hybrid powertrains. The established, 120bhp 1.8-litre hybrid system remains in the range, but with its eco performance enhanced by an upgrade to a lithium-ion high-voltage battery and by size, weight and efficiency improvements in all its principal hybrid components. CO2 emissions start from 86g/km (NEDC correlated data)/109g/km (WLTP data).

The additional powertrain is a new 2.0-litre system that produces 182bhp, with CO2 emissions from 92g/km (NEDC correlated data)/119g/km (WLTP data). It features an all-new 2.0-litre petrol engine that achieves a maximum thermal efficiency of 41 per cent – the world’s highest level for a mass-produced engine – which means more of the energy potential in every drop of fuel is captured.

As well as greater power and higher efficiency, the 2.0-litre hybrid versions of C-HR benefit from uprated suspension and improved noise and vibration countermeasures.

Multimedia system with smartphone integration

The new C-HR introduces Toyota’s latest developments in connectivity and infotainment. Its new, 2019 multimedia system incorporates Apple CarPlay™ and  Android Auto™, allowing the most commonly used smartphones to not just synchronise, but actually merge with the car’s media-system.

Provided as standard equipment, this also enables over-the-air map updates for the navigation system. Toyota provides a free three-year subscription for updates (available every six months) on every new C-HR.

Equipment grades and features

The new C-HR follows the model’s established grade structure in the UK. Entry point is the Icon, offered exclusively with the improved 1.8-litre self-charging hybrid system, followed by Design grade, which can be specified with either the 1.8 or new 2.0-litre hybrid powertrain.

Excel and Dynamic grades share top-of-the-range status, their specifications tailored to suit customer preferences for luxury, high technology and sharper styling details.

Orange Edition

The new C-HR is launched with a special Orange Edition model, finished in dedicated Scorched Orange paintwork with contrasting 18-inch matt black alloy wheels and black bi-tone roof. In addition to the Excel equipment specification, it also comes as standard with the JBL premium audio system.
