The all-new 2018 Toyota C-HR (Coupe High-Rider) is expected to arrive at J. Pauley Toyota in April 2017 and will be available in two well-equipped trim levels - XLE and XLE Premium. With Toyota New Global Architecture as the foundation of the Toyota C-HR, drivers will experience an athletic and agile ride. A spacious cabin makes room for five passengers and adds 19 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row that will transform to 36.4 cubic feet with the rear seats laid flat.
What Are the Differences Between the Toyota C-HR and Honda HR-V?
Affordability and value are highlights of the Toyota brand that are key elements of the car-buying decision and fit into this 2018 Toyota C-HR vs 2017 Honda HR-V comparison. With a starting price of just $22,500 and a smorgasbord of standard features, the Toyota C-HR provides tremendous value when you get behind the wheel. Honda HR-V editions provide a lower starting price without many of the standard fixtures employed by the Toyota crossover.
With Toyota Entune at the heart of the Toyota C-HR cabin, car buyers will benefit from incredible value and technology with a standard seven-inch touchscreen display, Bluetooth connectivity, a six-speaker sound system and an integrated backup camera. Additional features that are fixtures on the Toyota C-HR spec sheet are heated front seats, premium Sport Fabric interior and Toyota Smart Key with Push Button Start. Toyota Safety Sense is a standard element of the Toyota C-HR design that adds advanced collision-prevention technology not available for standard Honda HR-V models.
Under the hood, the 2018 Toyota C-HR will rely on a standard 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that manufactures 144 horsepower and 139 pound-feet of torque. Married to a continuously variable transmission with intelligence and Shift Mode, the Toyota C-HR will make 27 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway. Paired with Electronic Power Steering and an all-new double-wishbone suspension, the Toyota crossover will provide agile handling. Honda HR-V models counter with a 141-horsepower 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that is matched with a standard six-speed manual transmission that delivers lackluster fuel economy. With an upgrade to a continuously variable transmission, the Honda HR-V achieves similar fuel-economy ratings.
