The all-new 2017 Toyota C-HR is up for grabs in Australia, the model coming available on the local dealerships starting the beginning of 2017. Prices are set between AUD 25,000 – AUD 35,000.
I simply love the new C-HR, is looking absolutely marvelous with the evolutionary design and exquisite features inside the cabin; not to mention the high-performance powertrain under the hood.
Concerning the car`s styling, Tony Cramb, CEO at Toyota Australia sales, couldn’t help it and had to describe its design:
“It has four doors and a hatch, but it’s not a hatchback; it’s compact while having a large interior and room for five; it has a high driving position, yet it’s not a boxy off-roader. Not only does the C-HR always look like it’s on the move, the new platform and turbocharged petrol engine ensure it delivers an agile driving feel.”
Being a top-notch in Australia, the 2017 C-HR SUV will tackle the Mitsubishi ASX or the Mazda CX-3 with the most advanced technology and latest safety features. The main highlights refer to lane departure alert with steering assist, adaptive cruise control, rearview camera autonomous emergency breaking and auto high-beam.
Visually, the top of the line version, the Koba, will add more goodies, like 18-inch alloy wheels, smart entry and start, privacy glass, as well as the standard 6.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system with modern dashboard.
In the engine department, the 2017 Toyota C-HR SUV is packed with a 1.2-liter turbocharged engine, with at an unconfirmed configuration of 85 kW and 185 Nm of torque. Both versions, the standard and the Koba, are fitted with a front-wheel and an-all wheel drive.
