Toyota C-HR Arrives At Dealers In Japan

Following its arrival in the USA last month, the new C-HR is now available at Toyota’s dealerships in Japan.

Based on the TNGA (Toyota New Global Architecture) platform, which is shared with the fourth generation Prius, the compact crossover is offered in four grades (S-T, G-T, S, and G), with the most basic variant carrying a starting price of 2,516,400 yen ($21,847).

For the money, customers will get their C-HRs equipped with standard items such as keyless entry and push-button start, a three-spoke leather steering wheel, electric parking brake and the Toyota Safety Sense P assist package.

Opt for either the G-T or the G, which can be had from 2,775,600 ($24,097) and 2,905,200 ($25,222) respectively, and the automaker will throw in 18-inch aluminum wheels, LED front fog lamps, high quality fabric + leather seat surface, Blind Spot Monitor, front and rear parking assist sonar, and others.

As far as the engine options go, Toyota offers the C-HR with either a 1.2-liter turbo engine, which achieves a fuel efficiency rating of 15.4 km/l (6.49 l/100 km / 36.24 mpg US), or with a hybrid powertrain, whose fuel efficiency is said to be among the best in the compact crossover segment, with 3.31 l/100 km (71.06 / mpg US). Both versions have been subjected to tax breaks for environmentally-friendly vehicles, after their emission levels have turned out to be 75 percent lower than the 2005 Exhaust Emissions Standards.

    the more i see this thing, the more i love it!

  • Kenneth

    I recently realized that the more I see the C-HR, the more I like it – though I still wish Toyota would offer the option of a more powerful engine (>170 hp) to better-match the aggressive exterior and weight.

  • Justin Spencer

    I see that IT DOES have an all-wheel drive version unlike previous arcticles that stated power was only to the front-wheels…..that makes all the difference. This is probably the best small Toyota model to date! The interior looks great, the exterior looks great and the price looks to be right. I’m also loving the Toyota Celica-like trim level names “S-T and G-T”. Great job Toyota!!!

  • emjayay

    Godawful. And it’s obvious just looking at it that it has a pretty low interior volume to rest of vehicle ratio. In other words, a lot of car with little room inside. I guess if you want to drive a silly $30K toy that shows everyone what an idiot you are it’s the car for you.

  • i sow this on the road yesterday and is very cool !!!
