When the Scion brand name was dissolved, a couple of models brought 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 brand-new, we don’t expect much to change for the 2019 C-HR.
2019 Toyota C-HR Design
Its wild looks are part of the C-HR’s beauty, and they return its Scion roots, so we anticipate no changes in its style when the 2019 C-HR debuts. The very same opts for the interior, which is not as wild however 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 same. Presently, these consist of 18-inch wheels, automated high-beam control, LED daytime running lights, keyless entry, a rearview electronic camera, a leather-wrapped steering 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 anticipate the 2019 C-HR to stay completely unchanged. We expect it to carry on with the exact same 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 144 horsepower and 139 pound-feet of torque. In its basic setup, we expect this power to head to the front wheels through a continually variable transmission. Unlike certain rivals, the C-HR is not readily available in all-wheel drive.
The C-HR hasn’t completed NHTSA or IIHS safety testing, so there are no main scores yet for it. Nevertheless, the 2018 C-HR does comes standard with a variety of basic security features, consisting of adaptive cruise, brake hold, forward-collision warning with emergency situation braking, and lane-departure warning with intervention. Offered it can manage “Good” rankings 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 should retain all these features.
2019 Toyota C-HR Pricing & Release Date
There is no official release date for the 2019 Toyota C-HR, however we expect to see it in the spring of 2018. Prices isn’t yet available for the 2019 C-HR, however without any changes, we couldn’t imagine seeing a big swing from the current model’s price variety of $23,545 to $25,395 (location fees included).
The C-HR’s pricing is slightly lower than the larger RAV4, which begins with $26,495 (destination fees included) in its midrange XLE trim (the CH-R’s base trim is XLE), however the RAV4 typically has much larger rewards that pull this rate alarmingly near the smaller C-HR. The 2019 Toyota C-HR’s competition will include the Nissan Juke, Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, and Honda HR-V.
