Dynamic upgrades include modified EPS tuning for improved steering feel. All variants also feature an upgraded NVH pack to further reduce cabin noise. The wheel-and-tyre package comprises 17” wheels for the standard model, while the Plus and Luxury grades receive turbine-shaped 18” alloy wheels.
The new C-HR debuts a new OEM-sourced multimedia system that upgrades Toyota’s connectivity offer. This system now allows full smartphone integration and supports even the latest versions of Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. This feature allows occupants to mirror their cellphone on the vehicle screen - opening up a world of connectivity options, including music streaming and navigation solutions.
As part of the multimedia upgrade the screen size has been ‘enlarged’ from 6.1 to 8” (20cm). The Multi-information Display (MID) screen too has been upgraded from 3.7 to 4.2” (10cm) on the Plus grade.
All Toyota models come equipped with Toyota Connect, including a complimentary 15 Gb in car Wi-Fi allocation, vehicle telematics and enhanced user features via the MyToyota app.
A key component of this lifecycle refresh is the additional safety specification across the model range. The standard and Plus grades receive side, curtain and driver knee airbags - in addition to the front driver and passenger units – while rear seatbelt force limiters and pre-tensioners have been added to the standard grade derivative.
The flagship ‘Luxury’ grade model inherits a complete suite of electronic driver safety aids in the form of the Toyota Safety Sense system. These are made up of Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM), Lane Change Assist (LCA), Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA), Pre-crash system, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and Lane Keeping Assist.
The Standard and Plus models are available in six exterior shades, including newly-available Inferno Orange and Oxide Bronze metallic hues. The Luxury grade is exclusively offered in bi-tone configuration – with Passion Red, Nebula Blue and Inferno Orange being the latest tints on offer – all paired with a black roof.
All C-HR models are sold with a 6-services/90 000 km service plan (intervals set at 15 000 km) and 3-year/100 000km warranty. Customers can also purchase a variety of service and/or warranty add-ons at their local dealership.
THE LINE-UP: Toyota C-HR 1.2T – R 371 700, Toyota C-HR 1.2T Plus – R 403 000, Toyota C-HR 1.2T Plus CVT – R 415 100, Toyota C-HR 1.2T Luxury CVT – R 476 600.
