Toyota Safety Sense now available on C-HR, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto added Three-grade line-up continues (Standard, Plus and Luxury) New colours including Inferno Orange and Passion Red
Both front and rear areas have received detailed attention, bringing refinement to this expressive vehicle, while a painted lower lip reinforces the dynamic figure with a strong, wide and elevated stance.
The front bumper has gone ‘under the knife’ with a wider and larger lower air dam and more vertically positioned side air intakes. The ‘facelift’ also includes repositioning of the fog lamps, to a higher and more outward position.
The headlights on standard and Plus models have been upgraded to premium LED technology (bringing it in-line with the Luxury model), with the daytime running lights (DRLs) and indicators combined into one frontal projector emitting a single smooth line above the main beam. At the rear, the new bright red tail lamps are connected by a gloss black spoiler creating a single clean shape.
The acclaimed 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine continues as the anchor of the range – delivering effortless mid-range punch and cruising ability paired to either a CVT or 6-speed manual transmission. It continues to produce 85kW and 185Nm across a broad rpm range, whilst using just 6.3 litres per 100 km of fuel (6.4 for the CVT). CO2 emissions are pegged low at 141 – 144 g/km.
Dynamic upgrades include modified EPS tuning for improved steering feel. All variants also feature an upgraded NVH pack to further reduce cabin noise. The wheel-and-tyre package comprises 17” wheels for the standard model, while the Plus and Luxury grades receive turbine-shaped 18” alloy wheels.
The new C-HR debuts a new OEM-sourced multimedia system that upgrades Toyota’s connectivity offer. This system now allows full smartphone integration and supports even the latest versions of Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. This feature allows occupants to mirror their cellphone on the vehicle screen - opening up a world of connectivity options, including music streaming and navigation solutions.
As part of the multimedia upgrade the screen size has been ‘enlarged’ from 6.1 to 8” (20cm). The Multi-information Display (MID) screen too has been upgraded from 3.7 to 4.2” (10cm) on the Plus grade.
All Toyota models come equipped with Toyota Connect, including a complimentary 15 Gb in car Wi-Fi allocation, vehicle telematics and enhanced user features via the MyToyota app.
