When the Scion brand name was dissolved, a few models brought into Toyota’s lineup, including the not-yet-released C-HR. Previously this year, the Toyota C-HR came true, and 2019 will mark its second model year. Offered it’s still so new, we do not anticipate much to change for the 2019 C-HR.
2019 Toyota C-HR Design
Its wild appearances are part of the C-HR’s charm, and they return its Scion roots, so we expect no changes in its design when the 2019 C-HR debuts. The exact same opts for the interior, which is not as wild but still pretty sporty for a Toyota crossover.
2019 Toyota C-HR Changes
With no other changes in the works, we likewise expect the C-HR’s basic features to remain the very same. Currently, these consist of 18-inch wheels, automated high-beam control, LED daytime running lights, keyless entry, a rearview camera, a leather-wrapped steering 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 entirely unchanged. We anticipate it to continue with the same 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 144 horse power and 139 pound-feet of torque. In its basic setup, we expect this power to go to the front wheels by means of a continually variable transmission. Unlike particular competitors, the C-HR is not readily available in all-wheel drive.
The C-HR hasn’t finished NHTSA or IIHS safety screening, so there are no main scores yet for it. Nevertheless, the 2018 C-HR does comes standard with a multitude of standard safety features, including adaptive cruise, brake hold, forward-collision warning with emergency braking, and lane-departure caution with intervention. Given it can manage “Good” ratings in the IIHS’ crash tests and a minimum of 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 ought to retain 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 really yet available for the 2019 C-HR, but without any changes, we couldn’t picture seeing a big swing from the existing model’s price series of $23,545 to $25,395 (location charges included).
The C-HR’s rates is somewhat lower than the bigger RAV4, which begins with $26,495 (location charges consisted of) in its midrange XLE trim (the CH-R’s base trim is XLE), however the RAV4 typically has much bigger rewards that pull this rate dangerously close to the smaller sized C-HR. The 2019 Toyota C-HR’s competition will consist of the Nissan Juke, Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, and Honda HR-V.
