2020 Toyota C-HR, Review and Specifications

Its wild design, coupe-like body and bright choice of exterior colors will give the 2020 C-HR many adorable looks. The C-HR is only a front-wheel drive, where the all-wheel drive does not appear anywhere on the option sheet. The under-powered drive train is at least economical in fuel consumption. Still, other small SUVs are likely to be better purchases, especially those with larger holds and more passenger space. The C-HR is good value
for money - Toyota has a long list of standard features.



What's recent for 2020?

Toyota's smallest SUV gets a slight refresh of the style in 2020 in the form of an updated front bumper, grille, headlights and new wheel designs. The basic LE paneling is now equipped with Android auto function, LED headlights and SiriusXM satellite radio as standard. Mid-range XLE models are now equipped with front rear pockets and sun visor extensions. A driver's seat adjustable in eight directions and an adaptive headlight system are now part of the standard equipment of the limited model. The C-HR is available in two new exterior colors: Supersonic Red and Hot Lava; A contrasting silver-colored roof is now optionally available.

The XLE has a number of features worth the higher price, including 18-inch wheels, a proximity key with passive access, blind spot monitoring, heated wing mirrors, and a leather steering wheel. Toyota offers few options other than accessories.

Engine, transmission and power
 
The four-cylinder of the C-HR could use a turbocharger or a compressor. The C-HR is able to travel from zero to 60 miles an hour in 11.0 seconds, and it is significantly slower than most of its competitors. If you're driving around town normally, the lack of performance is well camouflaged thanks to a responsive throttle that zealously gets you off the line. However, when you step your right foot deeply on the accelerator pedal, the engine turns and stays there. It continues to boom as you wait for the continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) to adjust its gear ratios in a vain attempt to allow rapid forward movement. The C-HR delivers a ride over bumps that is comfortable but not outstanding in this segment. The suspension rebounds quickly after major road defects, but hits a repaired or broken road at high speed and you are treated with a cacophony of noises. Hard bumps send reverberation into the cabin. The steering of the C-HR feels precise and the front wheels react directly to commands. The handling is lively, the body roll well controlled and the C-HR feels playful behind the steering wheel.



Interior, comfort and cargo

A typical Toyota quality prevails in the cabin of the C-HR. With the exception of a pair of cheap plastic panels on either side of the center console, the materials throughout the interior appears to be well chosen and durable. A faux leather dashboard with simulated seams looks lifted, while diamond-coated plastic on the doors and similarly patterned headlining accents make the mix a little bit fun. Overall, the cabin looks very youthful. However, when it comes to the availability of functions, the C-HR is anything but current. The two-zone automatic climate control is the only basic luxury here, so that those who want subtleties such as seat adjustments or a sunroof are tired of it.  The loading capacity of the C-HR is average.


Infotainment and connectivity

An 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system sits high on the molded dashboard of the C-HR, and even the base model comes standard with Apple Car Play, Android Auto, SiriusXM satellite radio, and Bluetooth phone and music connections. It is a basic system and avoids visual beauty for straightforward menus that are easy to use - even those with minimal technological experience should feel comfortable with it.

TOYOTA always "Moving Forward"
