In late February 2017, Toyota’s impressive new C-HR with ‘striking coupe-like styling, engaging driving dynamics and advanced cabin quality’ will be arriving down under.
Tony Cramb, Toyota’s Executive Director of Sales and Marketing reveal’s the
C-HR will be a ‘fresh approach’ and intended to ‘stand out’ alongside the Toyota line-up (2017).
The C-HR is designed with a fuel-efficient turbo charged petrol engine and dynamics providing a rewarding experience for driving enthusiasts.
Cramb states “It is stunning proof of the determination by Toyota to encourage greater stylistic freedom and engineering creativity in order to achieve eye-catching designs and enhanced driving pleasure”.
The C-HR also places emphasis on the benefits of being built by Toyota’s New Global Architecture-based platforms.
Some of the C-HR’s features consist of:
- A GA-C platform allowing a low centre of gravity, which results in engaging a drivers experience
- Exceptional handling and agility
- Strictly controlled body roll
- Full automatic with seamless shifting or a sequential seven-speed Sports mode.
The impressive C-HR will be Australia’s first Toyota vehicle set to equip a powerful yet efficient four-cylinder 1.2 litre turbocharged petrol engine.
“It offers performance levels equivalent to a significantly larger engine, but with lower fuel consumption and emissions” (Cramb,2017).
Customers will also be able to add tailor made features including heated seats, a smart entry and start system, privacy glass, leather-accented upholstery and 18-inch alloy wheels.
Furthermore, the C-HR is outfitted with standard advanced safety features including:
- A pre-collision system with autonomous emergency braking
- Adaptive cruise control
- Lane departure alert with steering control
- Automatic high beam and a reversing camera
According to Toyota Australia, Toyota SUV’s are the highest selling car bought from Australians by any other brand. This set’s a new record with 59,412 SUVs, 18,000 more vehicles ahead of its close contenders (Toyota Australia,2017).
