The Toyota C-HR arrived on the market three years ago as our first compact crossover model. Its combination of striking design, athletic handling and efficient powertrains has so far attracted some 50,000 sales in the UK, 80% of which have been specified with the self-charging hybrid powertrain.
Toyota is now building on that strong customer appeal and sales momentum with the arrival of the 2020 Toyota C-HR. Developed by our European research and development division, its refinements include improvements in dynamic performance, subtle changes to the exterior and interior designs, and the introduction of the latest Toyota multimedia technology, which includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration.
The 2020 Toyota C-HR also allows customers to choose between two different hybrid powertrains, which is a unique opportunity within the C-SUV segment. The established 120bhp 1.8-litre hybrid powertrain remains, albeit upgraded with a new lithium-ion high-voltage battery pack, but it is now joined by a new 2.0-litre hybrid system that produces 182bhp. As well as greater power and high efficiency, these 2.0-litre versions benefit from uprated suspension and improved noise and vibration countermeasures.
The coupe-like lines of the new C-HR remain as distinctive as ever. However, subtle changes have been applied to simplify and refine the exterior aesthetic, while the headlights and rear light clusters have been reconfigured to illuminate with the latest LED technology.
