Toyota launches the new 2020 C-HR with optional hybrid drives


The new, 2020 Toyota C-HR builds on the striking design language and outstanding dynamic performance that has already awarded the company’s C-SUV segment iconic status within the Toyota model range.


Launched in 2016 and positioned as a dynamic crossover combining extravagant looks with the handling prowess to match - yet delivering segment-best emissions performance - the first Toyota C-HR had a powerful impact on the C-SUV segment.

The new, 2020 Toyota C-HR benefits from a second, more powerful hybrid system added to the powertrain range. It also features enhanced driving dynamics, more refined interior and exterior design, and an upgraded HMI (Human Machine Interface) featuring the latest multimedia technology.

The introduction of the additional hybrid powertrain gives customers the choice of two different hybrid options, a feature that is unique in the segment. The 122 hp 1.8 litre hybrid system remains, its eco performance enhanced by an upgraded lithium-ion battery, with CO2emissions as low as 109 g/km. (WLTP)

Top of the range is a powerful, 2.0 litre Hybrid Dynamic Force system. Generating 184 hp and CO2emissions from just 118 g/km (WLTP), this system combines high efficiency with a significant increase in power and, through updated suspension and improved NVH, an even smoother, quieter ride and new levels of driving dynamics.

The battery packs of both 1.8 and 2.0 litre systems are located entirely beneath the rear seats, avoiding any intrusion into the load space. They have increased cooling efficiency and a wider regeneration range. The 2.0 litre Hybrid Dynamic Force system is equipped with a very compact nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) battery with a total of 180 cells and a nominal voltage of 216 V. Featuring 56 cells and rated at 207.2 V, the 1.8 litre system has been upgraded with a lithium-ion battery of reduced weight and volume. The higher capability of lithium-ion to receive and deliver current increases the dynamic capability of the system, with a more natural acceleration feel as a result.

33% smaller than, and offering a 20% saving in electrical losses over its predecessor, the fourth generation power control unit (PCU) is a technological marvel, boasting super high efficiency while boosting voltage up to 650V for the electric motors. The PCU is the multi-purpose electrical heart of the vehicle, housing the inverter/voltage booster, a DC/DC converter for auxiliary power and the electronic control for the motor-generators.

The new Toyota C-HR remains true to its visual identity; its coupe-like lines creating bold styling that continues to stand out both in the Toyota range and the C-SUV segment. Subtle changes to both the front and rear of the car add simplicity, refinement and dynamism, while headlamp and rear light clusters have been reconfigured with the latest LED technology.

On board, the adoption of Toyota's 2019 Multimedia system now allows full smartphone integration through both ‘Apple CarPlay' and ‘Android Auto'. Additionally, this system facilitates ‘Over The Air' map updates to the navigation platform: Toyota delivers the car with a free 3-year subscription for these updates and they are made available every 6 months.

New Toyota C-HR is equipped with an on-board communication system, providing its buyers to enjoy MyT app connected services. For Toyota C-HR launch, a new feature will be released in the app: Hybrid Coaching. This will reinforce Toyota Hybrid leadership by providing personalised coaching message to help drivers to increase their EV drive and by bringing to life Hybrid driving benefits on a daily basis.

Toyota's European R&D division has led development of the 2020 Toyota C-HR, and it has been created specifically for the European market. It is built at Toyota Motor Manufacturing Turkey.
