2020 Toyota C-HR finally comes as upgraded model, after the last one is made a long time ago and improved only a few times so far. The new version was firstly showed on car shows in 2016, and it seems that we needed to wait this long for the new version.
- The car has a great new design.
- There are new engines under the hood.
- The car has too many curved lines on the top.
- It is not sure if engines are economical for the class.
There are few large changes in the design of 2020 Toyota C-HR, but those are mostly in details, like curved lines on the chassis and soft edges and lines. It should be higher than the last model, thanks to 21 inches wheels and highly positioned chassis. The front end has a recognizable thin grille with wide air vent above it and thin LED front lights on the sides of the hood line. The rear end, on the other hand, is rounded but covered with curved lines and decorations and has modernized rear lights, too. The car lies better on the ground, providing stability and better driving control.
The manufacturer should make some improvements in the cabin of 2020 Toyota C-HR and those would be in technology and safety. That is why we will see new and improved auto brakes; blind spot control and monitor lane departure assistant, collision mitigation, but also navigation system and advanced cruise control. When it comes to the comfort, the car offers a wide cabin with comfortable seats and a lot of space for tall passengers. It should be larger than a cabin in Mazda CX-3 but as comfortable and roomy as in Ford EcoSport. There should be found a new infotainment system and other improvements for passengers’ enjoyment, too.
The manufacturer has not précised yet which engine will be put under the hood of 2020 Toyota C-HR. The most likely version is 2.0-liter four-cylinder, at least in the base model, while higher trims should get something stronger and more attractive. It comes paired with six-speed automatic transmission and produces 150 horsepower. However, some markets should get a 1.8-liter petrol engine paired with an electric motor which should produce at least 120 horsepower of strength. It is still stronger than the main competitor Honda HR-V has.

2020 Toyota C-HR should be on the market may be at the end of the next year. It is not for sure if it will first be offered in North America and then on other markets, but that is the most likely scenario. In that case, expect that the first version will be shown on the Los Angeles Auto Show. The price should start at $20,000 and with all equipment; it could be around $35,000. Thanks to this favorable price it is still among the most attractive SUVs on the market.
