Toyota C-HR Exterior

Sharp Styling & Potent Performance

Helping you stand out in a sea of ordinary, the striking appearance of the Toyota C-HR helps you make an unforgettable entrance. The sharp, angular styling of the C-HR is perfectly complemented by optional Vortex-styled 18-inch wheels. Viewed from behind, onlookers will notice a stylish cantilevered aerodynamic rear spoiler perched atop the rear hatch glass. Expressive exterior color choices include Hot Lava and Supersonic Red to help match your personality.

Much of the fun-to-drive character of the C-HR can be attributed to its standard 2.0-Liter 4-Cylinder Engine which produces 144 horsepower and 139 lb-ft of torque using Toyota’s Valvematic technology. Enjoy manual shifting capability between 7 simulated gears from a Continuously Variable Transmission with intelligence and Shift Mode (CVTi-S). This sophisticated transmission provides the best of both worlds with exceptional response and impressive fuel efficiency. The C-HR achieves up to 31 MPG on the highway**. Twisty back roads are no match for the MacPherson strut front suspension with SACHS dampers.

Drivers and front passengers can each personalize their temperature preferences by using the dual zone automatic climate control system.
