This car belongs to the group of so called small SUVs. It comes with four doors, slopping roofline and hatch. It is front drive only. Underneath its bulgy sheet metal is the same Toyota New Global Architecture platform used by the Prius hybrid. Its name-2018 Toyota C-HR stands for Coupe High Rider.
2018 Toyota C-HR Price
Toyota has yet to announce pricing, but it is expected for the C-HR to be competitive with Kia’s Soul and the Nissan Juke.
Unveiled in Geneva AutoShow in 2014, Toyota C-HR had its U.S. debut this November at the LA AutoShow. It will probably be available on the markets worldwide in spring 2017.
Interior of Toyota C-HR
Specific for this caris that it is made in a way to emphasize the driver using specific “MeZONE”. There is a leather steering wheel.
The cabin is equipped with 7.0 inch display positioned over the dashboard rather than in it, because according to Toyota experts, it requires less eye movement so that you can be fully focused on the road. There is also a bundle of safety and cool technology features.
Toyota C-HR 2018 Exterior
Usually compared to Nissan Juke, the new C-HR looks to be a slightly less-wacky-looking. Precision-cut lines that let it shine from every angle and aggressive body lines make its appearance even more striking. The characteristic exterior are complemented by exaggerated front and rear fenders, large 18-inch wheels and an inward boomerang bend to the tail lights.
One more important information- there are two versions of this model, one that is intended for the U.S. and another for European market. Versus the European production version we saw earlier this year in Geneva, the US model has been fitted with different lights front and rear, but regrettably, they appear to be cheaper, non-LED units.
On paper, the C-HR stands in line with the Honda HR-V and Mazda CX-3.Based on the same global platform that underpins the latest-generation Prius, the C-HR will be available in the US powered solely by a 2.0-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine generating 144 horsepower and 139 pound-feet of torque.
For those keeping score, in Europe, the C-HR is offered as a 1.8-liter hybrid, putting out 120 horsepower, or a 133-hp, 1.2-liter turbo, the latter of which can also be ordered with a manual gearbox.
