C-HR Overview

Toyota C-HR was first showcased at the Geneva Motor Show in the year 2016, then later in 2017, it was brought to the Malaysian market. After two years in 2019, an upgraded version of the C-HR was launched with new colour options and few enhancements in terms of styling and equipment. The car has received widespread popularity right from its launch mainly because of its appearance. Besides that, the car has also managed to score a 5-star rating in ASEAN NCAP tests, making it top-notch in terms of safety standards. 

The associated price tag of C-HR stands at RM 150,000 on-the-road without insurance. The newly included colour option is Radiant Green Metallic. Other varieties of colour options available for the customers are Attitude Black Mica, White Pearl CS, Red Mica, Blue Metallic, and Metal Stream Metallic. An optional TRD Sportivo Aerokit package for adding on front and rear under-guards is also offered at RM 3,990. 

Toyota C-HR Interior & Features

The car is very appealing on the exterior front and the automakers have ensured that the spirit of excellence continues on the interior as well. As you get inside the Toyota C-HR you are welcomed by a well-groomed and luxurious cabin. Be it the seats, the dashboard, or the instrument cluster, everything seems so intricately designed that every inch and corner oozes of sophistication. 

The seats are wrapped in premium leather upholstery with a diamond design that totally complements the cabin design. The cabin follows a piano-black theme apart from few tints of brown at doors and front seats. The dashboard looks appealing with wraps of soft padding over it and the contrasts of silver ornamentation give it a plush look. Coming to the center-instrument console, we have a wide 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, faceted with all ubiquitous features like the smartphone connectivity, Wi-Fi, Internet browser, voice recognition, HDMI, USB, Bluetooth, and a reverse parking camera. The instrument console also comes with a 4.2-inch colour Multi-information Display (MID) which shows various data related to the car. Another striking feature includes an electrochromic rear-view mirror that automatically darkens to reduce glare that helps you focus ahead on the road.

C-HR Exterior

Toyota designers must receive acclamation for crafting out beauty like C-HR. the exterior aesthetics of the car are drool-worthy from each and every angle. 

Talking about the front fascia of the car, you see wide headlights, so large that they seem to cover almost the entire bonnet. Between the large headlights, lies the company’s logo. The front also dons automatic halogen projector lamps along with Daytime Running Lights (DRL’s). Other styling elements placed at the front bumper includes circular fog lamps which are neatly housed on either side of the bumper. Overall, with all these style elements, the front bumper looks eye-catchy. 

Segment-wise, the Toyota C-HR is a Compact High Rider or a Coupe High Rider, and the automaker has worked with utmost perfection to give the car that coupe-look. The car carries a two-door look and the door handles of the rear are located above the window panes. You may not be able to instantly locate the door handles, unless you see it very carefully, because the design is so seamlessly merged with the window panes. 

The rear profile of the car is as striking as the front is. With utmost swag and style, the overall look of the car gels ups so well. At the rear, the boot-lid and the tail-lights, add to the premium-ness of the car. The rear bumper is big and wide and merged with the rear wheel arches to form a coupe-like shape of the car. The rear bumper is pretty big and curves near the rear wheel arches. The outside rear-view mirrors are auto foldable and contain integrated turn signals and also feature small puddle lights. 

Overall, the exterior designing and styling hues of C-HR are irresistible and it’s not easy to take your eyes off this beauty. 

Toyota C-HR Ride & Handling

When a car comes from the House of Toyota, you can blindly trust on the ride and handling feature. The suspension set-up in C-HR is handled by MacPherson Strut type at the front wheels, and Double Wishbone type at the rear. Together these combine to offer an ultimate driving experience and stability to the driver. 

The astonishing C-HR rides on sparkling 17-inch alloy wheels which have a rubber of size 215/60. In terms of dimensions, the C-HR measures 4.36 meters in length and 1.795 meters in width, and 1.565 meters in height. This short height keeps the centre of gravity low and allows the car to tackle curves and corners with ease. C-HR is bulky weighing around 1405 kg and it has a fuel tank that can hold up to 50-litre of petrol in one go. With all these features, C-HR is sure to offer you an amazing ride quality in all three driving modes. 

C-HR Engine & Fuel Consumption

Toyota C-HR is blessed with the best of power-churner at its heart which is the 1.8-litre, 4-cylinder engine with dual VVT-i. It has the capacity to spark 140 PS of maximum power at 6,400 revs and gracefully generates 171 Nm of peak torque at 4,000 revs. The engine is mated to Toyota’s Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) with a 7-speed Sequential Shiftmatic that offers seamless performance and comfort.

Toyota C-HR comes with three driving modes- Eco, Normal, and Sport. The Eco mode optimizes air-conditioner cooling and reduces the throttle response to maximize fuel efficiency. The Normal mode offers the best balance between fuel efficiency and performance and is ideally meant for every day driving. The Sport mode on the other hand is meant for rough terrains where some enthusiastic drivers would love to endeavour. 

Toyota C-HR Braking & Safety

The C-HR comes with seven airbags. They make sure to keep the occupants of the car safe in case of a crash. Toyota has used its TNGA platform to build the C-HR which is why the C-HR is more comfortable, and is the safest car around. The whole set-up for braking and safety is the only reason why this car managed to score a 5-star rating in ASEAN NCAP tests. 

Other modern safety features include Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) which acts as an extra pair of eyes for you. The sensors intelligently detect vehicles concealed within the driver's blind spot, making every drive a much safer journey. We also have Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRC), Hill-Start Assist Control (HAC), Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake-Force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist (BA), Electric Parking Brake with Automatic Brake Hold, Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), and front and rear parking sensors.

C-HR Verdict

The Toyota C-HR is one of the best offerings from the company at a considerable price tag. The car should be a must-buy for someone who is looking for a superior and luxurious SUV, laden with premium features. The car offers a very smooth and comfortable drive, and the hybrid engine is smooth as well as powerful, providing the best in class performance. The C-HR is a great commuter with a well-designed cabin with plenty of boot space and storage.

    If you have seen the Toyota CH-R, I am sure you will regret buying the SUV that you present have.
