When the Scion brand was liquified, a few models carried 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. Given it’s still so 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 appeal, and they return its Scion roots, so we anticipate no changes in its style when the 2019 C-HR debuts. The exact same chooses the interior, which is not as wild but still quite stylish for a Toyota crossover.
2019 Toyota C-HR Changes
Without any other changes in the works, we also expect the C-HR’s basic features to stay the same. Presently, these include 18-inch wheels, automated high-beam control, LED daytime running lights, keyless entry, a rearview video camera, a leather-wrapped wheel, dual-zone car environment 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 totally unchanged. We anticipate it to carry on with the exact same 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 144 horsepower and 139 pound-feet of torque. In its standard setup, we expect this power to visit the front wheels through a continually variable transmission. Unlike certain competitors, the C-HR is not available in all-wheel drive.
The C-HR hasn’t completed NHTSA or IIHS security testing, so there are no main ratings yet for it. Nevertheless, the 2018 C-HR does comes standard with a slew of basic security features, consisting of adaptive cruise, brake hold, forward-collision caution with emergency braking, and lane-departure warning with intervention. Offered it can pull off “Good” rankings in the IIHS’ crash tests and at least an “Acceptable” score in the headlight test, the C-HR is well on its way to being a Top Safety Pick. The 2019 C-HR needs to maintain all these features.
2019 Toyota C-HR Pricing & Release Date
There is no official release date for the 2019 Toyota C-HR, but we expect to see it in the spring of 2018. Pricing isn’t really yet readily available for the 2019 C-HR, however without any changes, we couldn’t envision seeing a big swing from the present model’s cost variety of $23,545 to $25,395 (destination charges consisted of).
The C-HR’s rates is slightly lower than the bigger RAV4, which begins with $26,495 (destination costs included) in its midrange XLE trim (the CH-R’s base trim is XLE), but the RAV4 typically has much bigger incentives that pull this price alarmingly close to the smaller sized C-HR. The 2019 Toyota C-HR’s competitors will include the Nissan Juke, Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, and Honda HR-V.
