2020 Toyota C-HR: all the new details

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.

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.

  1. Now that CHR has upgraded display with Apple Car Play and Android Auto, when will this be released for 2019 (latest) Prius please? Thx.

    1. Hi John,

      Thanks for getting in touch. We currently have no new information to reveal regarding Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for Prius. We are working hard on smartphone integration for our UK model range and new updates will be shared on our blog and social channels.


  2. I’ve been waiting a long time to hear this news of the 2.0 litre. I am liking what I see especially the new DRL’s. (I think the current ones make it look sad). I have a few initial questions that I hope you can reveal answers to;
    Will it have a powered tailgate?
    Will it have paddle shifts and similar power-train layout as the Corolla?
    When will you publish a full spec and price list?
    When will deliveries of the 2.0l start.

    1. Hi Robert,

      Thanks for getting in touch. We’re glad to hear you’re a fan of the design updates. The powertrains available are now consistent with both RAV4 and Corolla with more details and the full spec and price list to be available soon. So while we can’t answer all of your questions at the moment, we can confirm that first deliveries can be expected at the start of January 2020.


  3. Its a shame for us who have bought new cars like the corolla which until now dont have smartphone integration like Apple carplay and android auto. And new cars coming out have it as standard. What a shame. So does it mean you have to change/upgrade your car again.

    1. Hi Melvin,

      Thanks for getting in touch. We are working on smartphone integration across our UK model range and as soon as there are updates regarding other models they will be shared to our blog and social channels.


      1. That doesn’t answer the question for existing customers. It should be a FOC upgrade for Corolla customers.

      2. In fairness to Toyota, they are probably not permitted to provide CarPlay unless the display and control system meet certain requirements, including performance. I imagine you’re not allowed to use the ‘Works with Apple CarPlay’ logo until such has been ratified by Apple. Which may mean that a simple software upgrade might not be possible.

  4. Should this not be referring to the 2020 MY CHR? We are already well into 2019 and on the Toyota website the engines available remain as before 1.2 petrol and 1.8 hybrid.

    Also, does this mean that Toyota is dropping the 1.2 petrol and with it the AWD option? Does this now mean that the CHR is 2WD only?

  5. In the current climate of Cat thefts does the CHR have a tilt sensor alarm, if not will one soon be available as a retrofit?

  6. I’m currently waiting to place an order for the updated Model as my Company Car through Zenith Leasing, but want confirmation of the specs before I do so. Do you know when this will be available to dealers and the lease companies ? Also details of pricing etc.
