Toyota C-HR (2017) Interior and Exterior Design. With the C-HR – or Coupé High-Rider – Toyota targets a clear and singular customer profile. Predominantly driven by emotional considerations, these customers want individuality, and to be the first to try new experiences and products. Style and quality are essential considerations in any purchase they make, and the car is an extension of their personality.
The Toyota C-HR’s unique character demonstrates the flexibility that the TNGA (Toyota New Global Architecture) gives to vehicle developers in the three key areas of design, powertrain and dynamics, enabling them to deliver a new and fresh take on the increasingly commoditized crossover segment.
Fitted with the latest-generation hybrid power plant, the C-HR generates CO2 emissions as low as 85 g/km – a figure unrivalled within its segment – and returns combined fuel consumption of only 3.7 l/100 km.
Delivering 122 horsepower / 90 kW, this new hybrid powertrain is not only more efficient and lighter than the previous system, but also offers sharper performance. Detailed design changes to the engine have resulted in a thermal efficiency of 40% – a world-beating performance for a petrol unit.
Other hybrid system components have been made lighter and smaller, and have been repositioned for optimum packaging, further contributing to the car’s low centre of gravity.
The C-HR is also available with a new 1.2 litre turbo engine, which debuted in the Auris. Delivering 116 hp/85 kW and 185 Nm of torque, this unit generates CO2 emission from 128 g/km and returns combined fuel consumption of from 5.7 l/100 km. It may be mated to either a 6-speed manual gearbox or a Continuously Variable Transmission. CVT equipped versions are available with either front- or all-wheel drive.
And finally, a 2-litre 150 hp/110 kW, 193 Nm CVT-only model will be available for certain markets (Ukraine and Caucasus).
Pre-sales will begin throughout Europe in September, with the first deliveries to customers before the end of the year. Positioned between the Toyota Auris TS and the RAV4, C-HR targets upwards of 100,000 annual European sales.
