2020 Toyota C-HR: Preview & Release Date

, Automotive Editor - January 24, 2019

Model Preview

For 2019, the Toyota C-HR saw no major changes save for its new base LE and range-topping Limited trims joining the existing XLE trim and a few new features like available navigation and standard Apple CarPlay. With this model still fresh and the 2019 tweaks giving it more ways to satisfy all buyers, we expect the 2020 Toyota C-HR to be a carryover model.

Visually, we expect no notable changes to the 2020 Toyota C-HR. We expect it to hit showrooms boasting the same funky design that’s endeared it to the younger crowd since its 2018 debut. This will include loads of sharp body lines that form triangular shapes, three-dimensional taillights, a low-slung roof, and coupe-like rear glass.

Inside, we expect the 2020 Toyota C-HR to remain unchanged too. We expect the driver-centric approach to continue with the floating touchscreen and climate controls slanted slightly toward the driver and the lightly bolstered front seats. In 2019, Toyota did a lot of work on the C-HR’s interior equipment, bringing in an optional navigation system, standard Apple CarPlay, optional leather upholstery, a premium audio system, and more. We expect these to remain a part of the 2020 C-HR lineup too.

With no notable changes coming, we expect the 2020 Toyota C-HR to continue with its surprisingly generous list of standard features. If this proves true, the 2020 C-HR LE will feature standard cloth upholstery, daytime running lights, 17-inch wheels, dual-zone climate control, Bluetooth, an 8-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, and more.

2018 Toyota C-HR

Under its hood, we expect the same 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 144 horsepower and 139 pound-feet of torque paired to a continuously variable transmission. Front-wheel drive will be the only setup for the 2020 C-HR, leaving it as one of the few crossovers on the market without optional all-wheel drive.

The current Toyota C-HR aced all the IIHS crash-safety tests, and its standard automatic emergency braking earned it a “Superior” front-crash-prevention score. While these are great and put it on the Top Safety Pick+ path, the C-HR’s “Poor” headlight rating eliminated it from consideration. With no changes coming, we expect all the safety ratings and equipment to remain the same on the 2020 Toyota C-HR.

Pricing & Release Date

There is no official release date for the 2020 Toyota C-HR, but we expect production to start in October 2019, leading to a December release.

With no changes on the horizon, we expect no big swings in pricing relative to the 2019 C-HR, which ranges from $22,090 to $27,145 (destination fees included).

The 2020 Toyota C-HR will compete with the Honda HR-V, Chevy Trax, and Ford EcoSport.
