When the Scion brand was dissolved, a few models carried into Toyota’s lineup, consisting of the not-yet-released C-HR. Earlier this year, the Toyota C-HR came true, and 2019 will mark its second model year. Provided it’s still so new, we do not expect much to change for the 2019 C-HR.
2019 Toyota C-HR Design
Its wild appearances belong to the C-HR’s beauty, and they hark back to its Scion roots, so we expect no changes in its style when the 2019 C-HR debuts. The exact same chooses 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 also expect the C-HR’s basic features to stay the exact same. Presently, these include 18-inch wheels, automated high-beam control, LED daytime running lights, keyless entry, a rearview electronic camera, a leather-wrapped wheel, dual-zone car climate control, a 7-inch touchscreen, six-speaker audio system, and more.
2019 Toyota C-HR Engine
Under its hood, we expect the 2019 C-HR to stay completely unchanged. We anticipate it to carry on 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 anticipate this power to head to the front wheels by means of a constantly variable transmission. Unlike specific rivals, the C-HR is not readily available in all-wheel drive.
The C-HR hasn’t finished NHTSA or IIHS safety testing, so there are no main ratings yet for it. However, the 2018 C-HR does comes standard with a variety of basic security features, consisting of adaptive cruise, brake hold, forward-collision caution with emergency braking, and lane-departure caution with intervention. Given it can manage “Good” scores in the IIHS’ crash tests and a minimum of an “Acceptable” ranking in the headlight test, the C-HR is well on its way to being a Top Safety Pick. The 2019 C-HR must maintain all these features.
2019 Toyota C-HR Pricing & Release Date
There is no official release date for the 2019 Toyota C-HR, however we anticipate to see it in the spring of 2018. Pricing isn’t really yet offered for the 2019 C-HR, however with no changes, we couldn’t think of seeing a big swing from the present model’s cost variety of $23,545 to $25,395 (location costs included).
The C-HR’s prices is a little lower than the bigger RAV4, which starts from $26,495 (destination costs consisted of) in its midrange XLE trim (the CH-R’s base trim is XLE), but the RAV4 often has much larger rewards that pull this rate precariously near 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.
