The popular Toyota C-HR SUV has received a raft of important updates for 2020, including a choice of two hybrid powertrains, a new multimedia system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and revised chassis settings.
2020 Toyota C-HR: hybrid powertrains
Following in the footsteps of its Corolla cousin, the new 2020 Toyota C-HR will benefit from a choice of two hybrid powertrains. Joining the existing 1.8-litre hybrid system is a new, more powerful, 2.0-litre hybrid so customers can choose the powertrain that best suits their driving style. Power outputs and emissions for each variant are listed below.
|Power||NEDC data||WLTP data|
|1.8-litre hybrid||120bhp||From 86g/km||From 109g/km|
|2.0-litre hybrid||182bhp||From 92g/km||From 118g/km|
Dynamic upgrades include modified electronic 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.
2020 Toyota C-HR: connectivity
The 2020 Toyota C-HR includes a new multimedia system that upgrades the vehicle’s connectivity. This system now allows full smartphone integration and offers the latest versions of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, while also supporting ‘over the air’ updates so customers can rely on the latest versions of European road maps.
2020 Toyota C-HR: design
The new 2020 Toyota C-HR remains true to the visual identity which has made it such a success, its coupe-like lines creating a bold style that continues to stand out. Both the front and rear have received detailed attention, bringing added refinement to the shape, while a colour-coordinated 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 into one frontal projector that emits a single smooth line above the main beam. At the rear, the new combination lights are connected by a gloss black spoiler creating a single clean shape.
