The 2018 Toyota C-HR Price will start at $ 22,500 when it goes on sale next month and will come loaded with a lot of premium content, including adaptive cruise control.
The crossover sub-compact trim will be short and soft, with only two models to choose from. The basic XLE version comes with a sticker price of $ 22,500, while the XLE premium will cost $ 24,350. The destination adds $ 960 to the bill, regardless of the tax base.
This is a bit of a costly proposition for the C-HR, which rivals the likes of the Honda HR-V and Mazda CX-3, both of which start at under $ 20,000. The Toyota is however an advantage when it comes to standard equipment, with active safety features such as adaptive cruise control and autonomous emergency braking.
Part of the standard Toyota Safety Sense Plus suite, these features are joined by a lane departure signaling system that includes soft steering assist, pedestrian detection, and automatic high beams. This is a robust suite to be safe, and one that is not available on the HR-V or CX-3.
Other standard features on the Toyota C-HR include dual-zone temperature control, a mirror camera, seven-inch touch screen infotainment display and 18-inch alloy wheels.
Feeding the compact crossover is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 144 horsepower and 139 pound-feet of torque. This output is sent to the front wheels by a continuously variable automatic transmission. The EPA estimates the fuel economy averages of 27 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway.
