The 2019 Toyota C-HR offers a number of revisions that further distance the model from its Scion roots. The variations include a new entry-level model, while last year's XLE Premium has been replaced with the Limited trim. In addition, two option packages are available: Entune Audio Plus on the XLE and Entune Premium Audio on the Limited.
Pricing starts with the new base LE at $21,990 ($1,505 less than last year's XLE), and rises to the uplevel Limited model, with a two-tone paint scheme and Entune Premium audio, that checks in at $29,270 – a $3,425 increase over last year's most expensive model.
A long list of standard features includes the usual power bits plus LED daytime running lights, a rear spoiler, 17-inch steel wheels, heated outside mirrors, dual-zone automatic climate control, an eight-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay capability, a leather-trimmed shift knob, a cargo cover, and keyless entry. A rearview camera, forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning with steering assist, and automatic headlights with high-beam assist are standard on all models.
With a single engine and transmission offered, we'd step up to the XLE trim that adds 18-inch alloy wheels, power-folding power outside mirrors with blind-spot warning indicators, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and touch-sensitive keyless entry with push-button start.
