When the Scion brand name was dissolved, a few models brought into Toyota’s lineup, consisting of the not-yet-released C-HR. Earlier this year, the Toyota C-HR became a reality, and 2019 will mark its second model year. Offered it’s still so new, we don’t anticipate 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 design when the 2019 C-HR debuts. The same opts for 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, automatic high-beam control, LED daytime running lights, keyless entry, a rearview 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 expect the 2019 C-HR to remain totally unchanged. We expect it to continue with the very same 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 144 horse power and 139 pound-feet of torque. In its standard setup, we anticipate this power to head to the front wheels via a continually variable transmission. Unlike specific rivals, the C-HR is not offered in all-wheel drive.
The C-HR hasn’t completed NHTSA or IIHS security screening, so there are no official ratings yet for it. Nevertheless, the 2018 C-HR does comes standard with a variety of standard safety 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 at least an “Acceptable” ranking in the headlight test, the C-HR is well on its method to being a Top Safety Pick. The 2019 C-HR needs to maintain all these features.
2019 Toyota C-HR Pricing & Release Date
There is no main release date for the 2019 Toyota C-HR, but we anticipate to see it in the spring of 2018. Pricing isn’t yet offered for the 2019 C-HR, but with no changes, we could not envision seeing a huge swing from the existing model’s cost range of $23,545 to $25,395 (destination charges consisted of).
The C-HR’s prices is slightly lower than the bigger RAV4, which starts from $26,495 (location charges consisted of) in its midrange XLE trim (the CH-R’s base trim is XLE), but the RAV4 often has much larger incentives that pull this rate precariously close to the smaller sized C-HR. The 2019 Toyota C-HR’s competitors will consist of the Nissan Juke, Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, and Honda HR-V.
