Press Release : All-New 2018 Toyota C-HR Production Version Debuted at 2016 LA Auto Show

Toyota C-HR production version was unveiled at the 2016 Auto Show and scheduled to launch as the 2018 model year.

Scion unveiled the C-HR Concept last year, but since Toyota has pulled the plug on Scion brand, the C-HR (Coupe High-Rider) will be an all-new model line in Toyota’s vehicles lineup.

The C-HR has a seating capacity of 5 passengers, a wheelbase of 103.9 in and dimensions of 171.2 inches long, 70.7 inches wide and 61.6 inches tall.

When available next year, the Toyota C-HR will be offered in two grades, XLE and XLE Premium, each will run on 18-inch alloy wheels and be powered by 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine producing 144 horsepower and 140 lb.-ft. of torque.

Exterior

At the C-HR’s nose, two slim projector-beam halogen headlights with LED daytime running lights wrap deep into its toned shoulders – nearly all the way into the front quarter panels. Because of this, the vehicle looks wider than it is, and possesses an assertive fascia that’s uncommon in the segment. Deep, curvy character lines emerge from a prominent Toyota badge that’s flanked by the headlamps, and lead into the narrower core body. They run below the slender windows, and continue above the rear wheel where they marry to a high beltline and distinctive C-Pillar with integrated door handle. Look closely at the silhouette to see the clear resemblance of a diamond set on its side. Powerful arches housing the extra-large 18-inch aluminum wheels accentuate the C-HR’s sturdy posture and compact cabin. The rear is a cohesive melding of its elaborate lines and 3D shapes. The tail lamps protrude outward, and the hatchback – outfitted with a lip spoiler and functional top wing – tapers neatly inboard, adding to the C-HR’s futuristic look, and, once more, surprising girth.

Interior

The slightly angled dashboard and amenity controls allows for the driver to have a clear view of the road ahead and intuitive access to instrumentation – a nod to the C-HR’s sports car influence. The 7-inch audio display is positioned centrally atop the dash, rather than in it, so as to help reduce a driver’s eye movements. An informative twin-ring gauge cluster resides behind the leather-wrapped multi-function steering wheel. The wheel, with its slender profile, small diameter, and compact center pad, is reminiscent of a sports car’s easy-to-grip helm. The satin-plated shift knob exudes a high-quality feeling, and once in-hand, has a solid shift movement. A bright 4.2-inch color Multi-Information Display sits between the twin-ring cluster.

Powertrain

Under the hood of the C-HR is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine producing 144 horsepower and 140 pound-feet of torque. The engine employs many of Toyota’s latest generation of technologies, including Variable Valve Timing (VVT) and Valvematic, both of which have received extensive optimization to enhance fuel economy and smooth operation. Valvematic offers a broader range of continuously variable valve timing (lift and phasing) to provide optimal intake valve (not on exhaust side) operation relative to engine demands. Furthermore, to reduce exhaust emissions, the catalyst is warmed earlier during the engine’s ignition cycle.
