Advanced Safety Features
The 2018 Toyota C-HR has many safety features to help prevent an accident from occurring. For instance, it comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P). Some of the driver-assisting technologies included in this suite are...
- Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection: Will scan the road ahead for any vehicles or pedestrians. If it detects a possible collision, it’ll send audio/visual warnings. If you don’t react in time, the system can automatically apply the brakes for you.
- Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control: This system will adjust your speed to maintain a safe following distance from the car in front of you. It can even bring the car to a complete stop, if need be.
There are also some advanced safety features that are available in higher trim levels. For example, there’s the Blind Spot Monitor. If a car is coming up in your blind spot, a warning light will appear in the appropriate side mirror. When the light goes away, you’ll know that it’s safe to switch lanes.
Exterior & Interior Design
The Toyota C-HR has a distinct style that stands out on the road. For example, the precision-cut lines make the car shine from every angle.
The cantilevered rear spoiler, C-pillar rear door handles, and vortex-styled 18-inch wheels all contribute to the SUV’s edgy look and feel. Plus, standard halogen headlights and artfully sculpted taillights help you see and be seen at night.
Additionally, the vehicle has lots of impressive color options. Whether you decide on Ruby Flare Pearl, Radiant Green Mica, Blue Eclipse Metallic, or another color, your vehicle will surely turn heads.
The diamond-like exterior extends into the cabin, where the trim is etched in a small diamond pattern. Plus, the interior comes standard with a soft-touch, leather steering wheel, along with a satin-plated shift knob. This gives the inside of the C-HR a sleek and sophisticated look and feel.
All the performance features in the Toyota C-HR make it really fun to drive. It comes standard with a lively 2.0L 4-cylinder Dynamic Force Engine that delivers 144 horsepower and 139 lb-ft of torque. It also achieves an EPA-estimated 27 city/31 highway MPG, letting you drive farther for longer.*
The engine is paired with a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) with intelligence and Shift Mode. When in Drive, the CVT will do all the work, giving you a smooth and efficient ride. When you want to take more control, the Sequential Shiftmatic Mode will let you manually shift between seven virtual gears.
Furthermore, there are several driving modes to tailor your driving experience. ECO Mode will reduce acceleration levels to increase fuel efficiency. Sport Mode will sharpen the throttle for lively acceleration, while Normal Mode will give you that perfect blend of performance and efficiency.
