New Toyota C-HR 2020 pricing and specs detailed: Hybrid joins SUV line-up

The C-HR is now available with a hybrid powertrain that combines a 1.8-litre four-cylinder petrol engine with an electric motor.

Toyota’s C-HR small SUV has under undergone an update that brings small styling tweaks, a new infotainment system and, for the first time, a hybrid has been added to the range.

The update also sees the sole manual variant dropped from the C-HR line-up. This leaves the two-wheel drive-base-spec C-HR with the auto transmission as the entry point into the model, but its price has increased by $550 to $29,540 plus on-road costs, while the all-wheel-drive version is $2000 more.

The Koba grade with front-wheel drive now starts at $33,290 (a $650 increase), with its all-wheel-drive counterpart also commanding a $2000 price premium.

All models now score alloy wheels. All models now score alloy wheels.

New to the range and now the most expensive C-HR is the front-wheel-drive Koba hybrid with its price of $36,440.

The hybrid uses a 72kW/142Nm 1.8-litre four-cylinder petrol engine and a 53kW/163Nm electric motor for a combined output of 90kW – the same set-up used by the Corolla hybrid.

All other C-HR variants retain their 85kW/185Nm 1.2-litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder engines.

The 6.1-inch touchscreen has been replaced with an 8.0-inch unit. The 6.1-inch touchscreen has been replaced with an 8.0-inch unit.

You’ll have to look hard to spot the styling changes. The design tweaks include new front and rear bumpers, with the former’s foglights relocated higher and a black crossbar added above the grille for both grades. The Koba also gains new LED headlights and tail-lights.

Inside, the 6.1-inch touchscreen has been replaced with an 8.0-inch unit that brings Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support for the first time.

Also standard on all grades is sat-nav, dual-zone climate control, alloy wheels, a 4.2-inch multi-information display and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.
