2021 Toyota C-HR: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Willis Kuelthau
Automotive Editor - June 18, 2020

Model Preview

As the baby crossover of Toyota’s lineup, the 2021 Toyota C-HR soldiers on as the entry point to the brand’s SUVs. Toyota hasn’t released official pricing or feature details, but we expect few changes for the new model year.

2020 brought a styling refresh to the C-HR, and we think it worked well. Compact crossovers rely heavily on flashy styling, and the C-HR looks unique without being too polarizing or distracting. Contrast roofs are all the rage these days, and you’ll find a good one here.

Inside, the current C-HR relies more on features than on space. The current C-HR comes with automatic dual-zone climate control and an eight-inch infotainment touchscreen, even in base trim. 2020 brought the welcome addition of Android Auto.

Cargo space is mediocre against competitors, and leg room is uninspiring. With the C-HR platform unchanged for 2021, we expect these gripes to continue. Unusual cutouts at the rear doors make ingress slightly more difficult than the C-HR's “high-rider” moniker might suggest.

Toyota C-HR

We expect no new powertrains for the C-HR, which isn’t exactly a cause for celebration. The current 2.0-liter engine produces only 144 horsepower, making the crossover feel sluggish on big hills or passing maneuvers. Snow-state buyers will also want to look elsewhere — the C-HR remains a front-wheel drive vehicle.

As far as small SUVs go, the C-HR is among the safer options. Toyota’s comprehensive suite of safety tech includes automatic emergency braking, active lane control, and adaptive cruise control as standard. The outgoing C-HR scored well in federal and independent safety testing, and we expect the new car to be equally impressive. Our only complaint is that the C-HR's futuristic styling makes outward visibility less than ideal.

Pricing & Release Date

The release date remains uncertain, but based on previous years, we expect the 2021 C-HR to land sometime in the fall of 2020.

Pricing hasn't been finalized, but the C-HR's three trims (LE, XLE, and Limited) will likely remain in place. Expect the C-HR LE to start close to $22,415 and reach around $27,470 for the Limited trim (destination fees included).

With the rising popularity of the compact crossover segment, it’s no surprise that the 2021 C-HR goes up against polished competitors. These include the Kia Soul, Honda HR-V, and Hyundai Kona.
