What's on this page

Toyota C-HR Australia

The Toyota C-HR is a funky small SUV which arrived in Australia in February 2017.

C-HR stands for ‘Coupe High Rider’ and the surprisingly adventurous styling for the usually-conservative Toyota is intended to attract younger buyers. It also sits pretty much half-way between the Corolla and RAV4.

Currently, the range extends from the C-HR STANDARD (2WD) which arrives at $29,540 and reaches up to the C-HR KOBA (2WD) TWO TONE (HYBRID) which lists at $36,890.

From launch, the C-HR was available in just two variants, the base-spec and the flagship Koba. It could also be optioned with either a front- or all-wheel drive. It also arrived with manual availability for the base model, with all other variants paired with a CVT auto.

This vehicle is also known as Toyota IZOA (China FAW-Toyota).

Toyota C-HR Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Toyota C-HR here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • What car should I buy?

    Boy, there’s a big difference between a Toyota CH-R and an Isuzu MU-X, Kathy. Rarely would both those models make it to the same short-list. In any case, the problem you’ll face is that buying any brand-new car involves waving goodbye to a large chunk of its residual value the same day you drive it home for the first time.

    Who is advising you to get rid of the Toyota? I’ve seen plenty of V6 Toyotas with more than 300,000km showing and still going strong. And if the mileage does worry you, what about finding a low-kilometre second-hand Aurion and pocketing the many thousands of dollars you’ve saved by not buying a brand-new car? You already know you love the way the Aurion drives (and its reliability is beyond question) it’s big enough for grand-kids and it’ll handle its share of dirt-road action.

    If you can’t find an Aurion, a V6 Camry is a good alternative, offering a similar level of interior space, performance and lots of value for money. A later-model example will also have side-curtain air-bags to protect rear-seat passengers. And when the word honesty is used in the context of cars, a Toyota Camry is one of the first mental images to appear.

  • Toyota C-HR 2017: How do I change the language in my car?

    I’ll assume you had a good poke around the various settings menus before contacting us, Sweta, so I’ll skip that part of the advice. But from what I can gather, your privately-imported car may not actually have the functionality to switch to an English-language format.

    Different markets have different specifications for this and sometimes the same vehicle can be built in two (or more) different factories around the world. Certainly, if the car you own had been destined for a market outside Japan, it would have had multi-lingual abilities. But, if it was only ever destined for the Japanese home market, there’s a big chance it only has Japanese programmed into it.

    If that’s the case, you might find you need to change the entire head unit. That might be wise anyway, as some Japanese radio stations operate on a wave-length that isn’t used in Australia. Basically, this is another of the pitfalls of parallel-imported cars.

  • Should I buy the Toyota C-HR Hybrid of the Camry HL Hybrid?

    Unfortunately the C-HR Hybrid isn't yet on sale in Australia, though it is likely to be available here in 2020.

    If you can't wait that long, the Corolla Hybrid could be a great option for you. That is, unless you need a big back seat, a big boot or a full size spare wheel... You only get a full size spare on the top-spec ZR, which is beyond the budget, and no Corolla hatch has a big back seat or boot. There is a Corolla sedan coming in November, which will have a big boot and bigger back seat. 

    The Camry Hybrid is a much bigger car, and offers a lot more accommodation as a result. It's a big, lovely car - one we'd wholeheartedly recommend. And you should be able to fine one under $30k less than 12 months old. 

    Otherwise, check out the Corolla Hybrid (SX would be our recommendation), and you might even be able to get one brand new within your budget.

    Test drive them both, and let us know how you go!

  • What cars are easy to get in and out of?

    It’s a common problem for us as we get older, but there are no sedans or hatches that have the sort of higher driving seat that you want. The best option would be a small SUV, such as a Holden Trax, Toyota C-HR, Ford Kuga, or Suzuki S-Cross.
