Prices and specifications announced for new Toyota C-HR hybrid

New Toyota C-HR crossover

Toyota’s C-HR crossover has become an all-hybrid range with a choice of upgraded 1.8 and new 2.0-litre ‘self-charging’ hybrid powertrains.

It follows the new Corolla in adopting Toyota’s dual hybrid strategy.

First launched in 2016, the C-HR is one of Toyota’s brand’s best-selling models in the UK. The new C-HR offers fleet decision-makers and company car drivers the choice of two different hybrid powertrains. It retains the 120bhp 1.8-litre hybrid system, but it now offers “an upgrade to a lithium-ion high-voltage battery and by size, weight and efficiency improvements in all its principal hybrid components”. CO2 emissions start from 86g/km (NEDC correlated data)/109g/km (WLTP data).

The additional powertrain is a new 2.0-litre system that produces 182bhp, with CO2 emissions from 92g/km (NEDC correlated data)/119g/km (WLTP data). It features an all-new 2.0-litre petrol engine that achieves a maximum thermal efficiency of 41% – which, according to Toyota, is the world’s highest level for a mass-produced engine.

In addition to increased power and higher efficiency, the 2.0-litre hybrid versions of C-HR benefit from uprated suspension and improved noise and vibration countermeasures.

Multimedia system 

The new C-HR introduces Toyota’s latest developments in connectivity and infotainment. Its new, 2019 multimedia system incorporates Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, allowing smartphones to synchronise and merge with the car’s media-system.

Included as standard equipment, this also allows over-the-air map updates for the navigation system.

Equipment grades and features

The new C-HR follows the model’s established grade structure in the UK. Entry point is the Icon, offered exclusively with the improved 1.8-litre self-charging hybrid system, followed by Design grade, which can be specified with either the 1.8 or new 2.0-litre hybrid powertrain.

Excel and Dynamic grades share top-of-the-range status, their specifications tailored to suit customer preferences for luxury, high technology and sharper styling details.

The new C-HR is on sale now, with deliveries starting in January 2020. On-the-road (OTR) prices are shown in the table below. All versions are covered by Toyota’s five-year/100,000-mile new car warranty.
