2019 Toyota C-HR: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

, Automotive Editor - October 03, 2017

Model Preview

When the Scion brand was dissolved, a few models carried into Toyota’s lineup, including the not-yet-released C-HR. Earlier this year, the Toyota C-HR became a reality, and 2019 will mark its second model year. Given it’s still so new, we don’t expect much to change for the 2019 C-HR.

Its wild looks are part of the C-HR’s charm, and they hark back to its Scion roots, so we expect no changes in its design when the 2019 C-HR debuts. The same goes for the interior, which is not as wild but still pretty sporty for a Toyota crossover.

With no other changes in the works, we also expect the C-HR’s standard features to remain the same. Currently, these include 18-inch wheels, automatic high-beam control, LED daytime running lights, keyless entry, a rearview camera, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, dual-zone auto climate control, a 7-inch touchscreen, six-speaker audio system, and more.

Under its hood, we expect the 2019 C-HR to remain completely unchanged. We expect it to carry on with the same 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 144 horsepower and 139 pound-feet of torque. In its standard setup, we expect this power to head to the front wheels via a continuously variable transmission. Unlike certain competitors, the C-HR is not available in all-wheel drive.

The C-HR hasn’t completed NHTSA or IIHS safety testing, so there are no official ratings yet for it. However, the 2018 C-HR does comes standard with a slew of standard safety features, including adaptive cruise, brake hold, forward-collision warning with emergency braking, and lane-departure warning with intervention. Given it can pull off “Good” ratings in the IIHS’ crash tests and at least an “Acceptable” rating in the headlight test, the C-HR is well on its way to being a Top Safety Pick. The 2019 C-HR should retain all these features.

Pricing & Release Date

There is no official release date for the 2019 Toyota C-HR, but we expect to see it in the spring of 2018.

Pricing isn’t yet available for the 2019 C-HR, but with no changes, we couldn’t imagine seeing a big swing from the current model’s price range of $23,545 to $25,395 (destination fees included).

The C-HR’s pricing is slightly lower than the larger RAV4, which starts from $26,495 (destination fees included) in its midrange XLE trim (the CH-R’s base trim is XLE), but the RAV4 often has much larger incentives that pull this price dangerously close to the smaller C-HR.

The 2019 Toyota C-HR’s competition will include the Nissan Juke, Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, and Honda HR-V.
