New European Designed And Built Toyota C-HR Arrived In Australia

The all-new second-generation Toyota C-HR premium compact SUV has landed in Australian showrooms, bringing stylish European design and frugal hybrid performance to the small SUV segment.

The three-variant C-HR line-up sees a significant increase in luxury and performance compared with the outgoing generation, with the choice of two new-generation hybrid powertrains and the introduction of a range of new technologies for safety, comfort and convenience.

Toyota Australia Vice President Sales, Marketing and Franchise Operations Sean Hanley said the all-new C-HR range offers customers a luxurious package with signature Toyota performance and reliability.

“The all-new European-built C-HR is a truly premium offering in the compact SUV segment, bringing a great mix of style and substance,” Mr Hanley said.

“Building on its predecessor, it takes its sharp distinctive styling to new heights both inside and out, and combined with premium materials, textures and finishes, it raises the bar in this segment.

“At the same time, with a choice of two dynamic hybrid powertrains and a raft of advanced technologies for comfort, convenience and safety, the new C-HR is set to provide plenty of appeal for young, and young-at-heart, customers,” he said.

The three-variant range opens with the highly specified GXL grade, priced from $42,990 plus on-road costs1 .

Adopting Toyota’s new ‘Hammer Head’ exterior design language, the GXL is distinguished on the outside by 17-inch alloy wheels, LED lights with automatic high beam, a rear spoiler and a grained pattern for the front grille, black bumpers and pillar trim.

Inside, the C-HR welcomes occupants with a cosseting and stylish cabin design that uses a range of recycled materials and no animal-derived products.

The C-HR GXL offers a supremely comfortable interior with manually adjustable sporty seats with fabric upholstery, automatic dual-zone climate control, synthetic leather-accented steering wheel with tilt and telescopic adjustment, electronic parking brake, USB-C and 12V charging ports and an electrochromatic rearview mirror.

All C-HR variants feature the latest-generation high-resolution 12.3-inch touchscreen multimedia system with wireless Apple CarPlay®2  and Android Auto™3 , cloud-based satellite navigation4 , DAB+ digital radio5  and voice recognition. GXL grades use a six-speaker audio system and incorporate a 7.0-inch multi-information display (MID) into the instrument cluster.

Every C-HR grade comes with a high level of active safety technology via the Toyota Safety Sense6  suite which includes the pre-collision safety system, active cruise control, lane trace assist, parking support brake, road sign assist (speed signs only), safe exit assist and more, as well as a panoramic view monitor and 10 SRS airbags.

The GXL is powered by an upgraded fifth-generation 1.8-litre petrol-electric hybrid powertrain that drives through the front wheels, developing a combined 103kW while consuming an average of 4.0 litres of fuel per 100km7  making it more powerful and efficient than before.

Sitting above the GXL is the new C-HR Koba variant priced from $49,990 plus on-road costs1 .

It adds a range of premium enhancements, which on the outside, include 19-inch machined alloy wheels with a gloss black contrast finish, auto-leveling bi-LED headlamps, LED foglamps, a powered tailgate, premium gloss black exterior accents and privacy glass for the rear and rear-side windows.

Inside, the Koba gains heated sport front seats with combination suede-like and fabric upholstery, powered driver’s seat with memory, nanoe-XTM8  cabin ionisation, a digital rearview mirror and, multi-colour ambient interior illumination.

Additional technology for comfort and convenience includes a colour head-up display, nine-speaker JBL®8  premium audio system, wireless smartphone charger9 , rear USB-C accessory port, and a fully digital 12.3-inch instrument display.

Koba variants also gain an adaptive high-beam system which is able to selectively dim the road ahead to prevent dazzling other road users.

The new flagship variant for the C-HR range is the dynamically-enhanced GR Sport grade which offers greater performance and more sporty styling.

The GR Sport is differentiated from the outside by unique gloss black 19-inch alloy wheels, GR Sport grille design with a liquid black finish, and GR Sport badging.

Cabin enhancements to the GR Sport extend to GR Sport front seats with combination synthetic leather-accented and suede-like upholstery, GR-branded aluminium scuff plates and floor mats, and a perforated GR Sport steering wheel with heating functionality.

Far more than just a visual package, the GR Sport provides significantly greater performance with power coming from a 2.0-litre hybrid system with dual-motor E-Four all-wheel drive.

Producing a potent 146kW combined output, the GR Sport maintains a low combined fuel consumption of just 4.1L/100km10  while stopping power is also enhanced with larger twin-piston caliper front brakes.

The flagship GR Sport grade is available from $54,990 plus on-road costs1 .

All C-HR variants come with a 12-month complimentary subscription to Toyota Connected Services11 , providing welcome security and convenience features accessible through the myToyota Connect smartphone app12 .

Every new C-HR is offered with the Toyota Warranty Advantage, consisting of a five-year/unlimited kilometre term13  with capped-price servicing for the first five years/75,000km (whichever comes first) and each 12-month/15,000km service costing $250.14

Six exterior colours are available on GXL variants, consisting of Glacier White, Frosted White pearl, Graphite and Stunning Silver metallic, and Ink and Emeraldine, available in a mica metallic finish.15

Koba and GR Sport grades provide an extra element of visual flair with two-tone colourways that combine a black roof with Frosted White pearl, metallic Graphite, Stunning Silver, Feverish Red and Sunglow, or metallic mica Emeraldine.16

A Two-Tone Plus finish is also available for Koba and GR Sport which adds the roof’s black finish to the rear of the vehicle, and can be optioned with a panoramic roof. Koba and GR Sport customers can also opt for the all-black Ink mica metallic finish.
