Take one glance at the 2020 Toyota C-HR and you won’t be able to tell if it’s a hatchback, sporty coupe, or a crossover SUV. That’s because it flawlessly combines all three.
Starting with a restyled front fascia, LED headlamps and new wheel designs, the all-new 2020 C-HR has a drastically different look compared to previous model years. It’s a car that screams “look at me” and it’s even more fun to drive.
The all-new C-HR’s punchy dual-overhead cam 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine produces 144 horsepower at 6,100 rpm and an impressive 139 pound-feet of torque at 3,900 rpm. What makes this year’s edition stand out is that the engine employs many of Toyota’s latest-generation technologies, including Variable Valve Timing (VVT) and Valvematic valve lift control, according to a press release from Toyota.
When it comes to quality of the ride, drivers will notice a low center of gravity, high strength, and low weight thanks to the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) C-platform. Extensive spot welding, gussets, braces, and adhesives at key connection structures provide outstanding structural rigidity, the cornerstones of nimble handling and smooth ride quality.
It’s the perfect vehicle for anyone who wants “a little of everything” in one convenient package. Take a look at some of the highlights for yourself:
- Restyled Front End and New Wheel Designs Amp Up Standout Style for 2020
- Android Auto Compatibility Joins Apple CarPlay® Compatibility as Standard
- Limited Gains Adaptive Front Lighting System and 8-Way Power Driver’s Seat
- Standard SiriusXM® All Access 3-Month Trial Satellite Radio on All Grades
- Bold New Exterior Colors: Supersonic Red*, Hot Lava* (Orange) and a new Silver R-Code roof option
When it comes to the interior structure of the 2020 C-HR, Toyota designed it to be uncluttered and refined with a concept called the “MeZONE” cabin. Along with the soft-touch materials covering surfaces throughout, additional updates for 2020 include a new Gray headliner for the LE and Limited grades, plus two new, striking interior color combinations, according to the press release.
Toyota built this innovative vehicle to be supremely versatile so it’s limber enough to use for everyday city driving, including parking on the street. Yet it’s big enough to fit up to five passengers comfortably or to pack up for a weekend getaway.
The 60/40 split rear seat folds flat, and seatback lock releases are positioned at shoulder height, making it easy to fold the seats without bending over. The best part is that the seat belts are engineered to never get in the way so you can structure the C-HR to mirror exactly what you need it to do.
All of the flashy features and the big exterior makeover don’t mean much without intuitive safety features. That’s exactly why the C-HR comes equipped with Toyota’s Star Safety System, which includes Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control, Traction Control, Electronic Brake-force Distribution, Brake Assist, Anti-lock Braking System, and Smart Stop Technology, according to the press release.
Available in LE, XLE, and Limited, the 2020 Toyota C-HR comes in a variety of fun colors, one of the staples of this modern, innovative machine.
