When the Scion brand was liquified, a couple of models brought into Toyota’s lineup, including the not-yet-released C-HR. Previously this year, the Toyota C-HR became a reality, and 2019 will mark its second model year. Offered it’s still so brand-new, we do not expect much to change for the 2019 C-HR.
2019 Toyota C-HR Design
Its wild looks become part of the C-HR’s charm, and they hark back to its Scion roots, so we expect no changes in its design when the 2019 C-HR debuts. The exact same chooses the interior, which is not as wild however still quite sporty for a Toyota crossover.
2019 Toyota C-HR Changes
Without any other changes in the works, we likewise anticipate the C-HR’s standard features to remain the exact same. Presently, these consist of 18-inch wheels, automatic high-beam control, LED daytime running lights, keyless entry, a rearview camera, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, dual-zone vehicle climate control, a 7-inch touchscreen, six-speaker audio system, and more.
2019 Toyota C-HR Engine
Under its hood, we anticipate the 2019 C-HR to remain completely the same. We expect it to carry on with the very same 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 144 horsepower and 139 pound-feet of torque. In its basic setup, we expect this power to visit the front wheels via a constantly variable transmission. Unlike certain competitors, the C-HR is not available in all-wheel drive.
The C-HR hasn’t finished NHTSA or IIHS safety screening, so there are no official ratings yet for it. However, the 2018 C-HR does comes standard with a multitude of standard security features, consisting of adaptive cruise, brake hold, forward-collision warning with emergency braking, and lane-departure caution with intervention. Given it can pull off “Good” rankings in the IIHS’ crash tests and at least an “Acceptable” rating in the headlight test, the C-HR is well on its way to being a Top Safety Pick. The 2019 C-HR should maintain all these features.
2019 Toyota C-HR Pricing & Release Date
There is no main release date for the 2019 Toyota C-HR, but we anticipate to see it in the spring of 2018. Prices isn’t yet offered for the 2019 C-HR, however with no changes, we couldn’t picture seeing a big swing from the current model’s rate variety of $23,545 to $25,395 (destination fees included).
The C-HR’s prices is a little lower than the larger RAV4, which begins with $26,495 (destination charges consisted of) in its midrange XLE trim (the CH-R’s base trim is XLE), but the RAV4 frequently has much bigger incentives that pull this rate precariously close to the smaller C-HR. The 2019 Toyota C-HR’s competitors will include the Nissan Juke, Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, and Honda HR-V.
