The 2018 Toyota C-HR complements its arresting appearance with a startlingly responsive drive. With a 2.0L 4-cylinder DOHC engine beneath the hood to put you in command of up to 144 hp and 139 lb-ft of torque, you’ll experience vibrant performance across the power spectrum – whether accelerating from standstill or passing on the highway, the Toyota C-HR feels a cut above the average.
Independent MacPherson strut front suspension and double-wishbone rear suspension both use stabilizer bar, coil springs, and hydraulic shock absorbers with SACHS dampers to iron out the road. Sport, Normal, and ECO drive modes customize driving dynamics around your changing needs and wants.
And efficiency is just as impressive. Continuously Variable Transmission with intelligence and Shift Mode (CVTi-S) is fitted across all trims for a seamless delivery or power and mileage ratings of up to 27 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway.
People often look to full-size SUVs for top-tier technology. The 2018 Toyota C-HR brings such features to the compact crossover segment, and you’ll find plenty of them fitted as standard.
