2020 Toyota C-HR comes with exterior and interior updates alongside feature additions
Toyota has updated its C-HR Crossover for 2020. The car retains its overall original identity but gets new styling changes and additional features. These changes have been necessary to keep the ball rolling in its favour in the international markets as they keep the C-HR fresher among the competition.
The C-HR now gets a honeycomb grille up front, redesigned headlamps, a new bumper and spoiler. The new fog lamps are now situated above the side vents. It should also be noted that the entire C-HR range comes with LED headlights as standard. The compact SUV is available in three trims: LE, XLE and Limited. The base LE trim comes equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels while the range-topping Limited variant gets 18-inchers.
Apart from the already available five monotone paint-schemes including Blizzard Pearl, Blue Eclipse Metallic, Magnetic Grey Metallic, Black Sand Pearl, and Silver Metallic Knockout, the C-HR additionally gets two new colour options to choose from. The two new paint schemes, Supersonic Red and Hot Lava Orange are both only available in a dual-tone scheme, with a black roof.
Toyota is also offering a new silver roof with the Black Sand Pearl paint scheme. We will no longer see the white roof which was available with the pre-facelift model as it has been discontinued. The cabin has received a makeover to make it feel airy inside. It now comes with a standard grey headliner, with optional black leather seats.
The top of the line XLE trim gets an all-new black sport fabric paired with blue accents and contrasting stitching. The previous model came only with Apple CarPlay, but the 2020 C-HR also gets Android Auto and Amazon Alexa compatibility for the 8-inch infotainment system.
Toyota hasn’t brought any mechanical changes to the C-HR. It gets the same 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine which makes 144 HP of power 188 Nm of torque. The engine comes mated to a CVT, with a simulated seven-speed sequential-shift feature.
The 2020 Toyota C-HR gets a price hike of $150, with the pricing for the crossover now starting from $21,295 for the base LE variant (Rs. 15 lakh approx.), and go up to $26,350 for the top-end variant. The 2020 C-HR will hit the markets at the end of this month.
