The C-HR is roughly the same size as its main rivals, however, it isn’t as roomy in the back as those cars (blame the sleek roofline) and costs a little bit more to buy. With its beautifully sculptured design, responsive and engaging hybrid powertrain offers a luxurious SUV drive. The Toyota C-HR dynamic, with Toyota Safety Sense as standard and Intelligent Park Assist.
The sleek car comes in five variants; Koba 2WD, C-HR CVT 2WD, Koba AWD, C-HR MT 2WD and C-HR CVT AWD. The key features include:
