A Brief Preview of the Toyota C-HR
There’s plenty to be excited for with the upcoming Toyota C-HR, which is the automaker’s newest addition to the lineup. The C-HR is part coupe, part crossover, and falls into the subcompact crossover SUV segment. Its name stands for “Coupe High-Rider,” though it has four doors, unlike most coupes. Find out what we know so far about this thrilling new model, and then head to Palmer’s Toyota Superstore when it hits the market in spring 2017.
The Toyota C-HR will run on a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine that generates 144 hp and 140 lb-ft of torque via a 7-speed continuously variable transmission. This power is delivered to the front wheels, and all-wheel drive is not offered on this model. You’ll also enjoy a Sport mode that allows for a higher octane ride.
Safety tech abounds on the all-new Toyota C-HR. You can expect features like Forward Collision Warning with Pedestrian Detection, which can automatically brake when it senses an obstacle at low speeds. Lane Departure Warning with Steering Assist guides your steering wheel to keep you in your lane while Automatic High Beams offer ultimate visibility, and Adaptive Cruise Control keeps you a safe distance from cars in front of you. There’s even Blind Spot Monitoring to help you navigate those hard-to-see spaces.
There’s no shortage of high-tech features on the upcoming Toyota C-HR, all meant to make your ride more enjoyable. For example, you can expect a 7-inch multimedia screen and a 4.2-inch multifunction display in the dashboard. As you move through the trim lineup, comforts like a leather-wrapped steering wheel, dual-zone climate control, and heated front seats are installed. At the top of the line, you’ll stay entertained on the road thanks to the AM/FM/HD radio with the Aha app by Harman and Bluetooth streaming.
Inside and out, the Toyota C-HR has been uniquely designed. Toyota calls the style inspiration “distinctive diamond,” and rightfully so. With 18-inch wheels, this smaller car gets an imposing stance, and various swooping lines make for an exclusive aesthetic. And despite having four doors, the C-HR does indeed resemble a coupe, thanks to backdoor handles, which are flush to the exterior. In the cabin, Toyota takes a futuristic approach, with horizontal design elements along the dashboard that appear three-dimensional, as well as ribbon-like blue trim and charcoal and pale purple upholstery. You and your passengers will enjoy the large interior with ample head and legroom.
