2020 Toyota C-HR: hybrid powertrains

Following in the footsteps of its Corolla cousin, the new 2020 Toyota C-HR will benefit from a choice of two hybrid powertrains. Joining the existing 1.8-litre hybrid system is a new, more powerful, 2.0-litre hybrid so customers can choose the powertrain that best suits their driving style. Power outputs and emissions for each variant are listed below.

Power NEDC data WLTP data
1.8-litre hybrid 120bhp From 86g/km From 109g/km
2.0-litre hybrid 182bhp From 92g/km From 118g/km

Dynamic upgrades include modified electronic power steering tuning for improved steering feel. The 2.0-litre hybrid also benefits from a new suspension design that improves ride comfort while retaining the Toyota C-HR’s excellent handling capabilities. All variants also feature an upgraded package to further reduce cabin noise.

2020 Toyota C-HR: connectivity

The 2020 Toyota C-HR includes a new multimedia system that upgrades the vehicle’s connectivity. This system now allows full smartphone integration and offers the latest versions of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, while also supporting ‘over the air’ updates so customers can rely on the latest versions of European road maps.

2020 Toyota C-HR: design

The new 2020 Toyota C-HR remains true to the visual identity which has made it such a success, its coupe-like lines creating a bold style that continues to stand out. Both the front and rear have received detailed attention, bringing added refinement to the shape, while a colour-coordinated lower lip reinforces a strong, wide and elevated stance.

Front lights are upgraded to premium LED technology, with the daytime running lights and indicators combined into one frontal projector that emits a single smooth line above the main beam. At the rear, the new combination lights are connected by a gloss black spoiler creating a single clean shape.

  1. The new orange edition is a limited edition, could you say how limited I’ve been told there are only 500 being made .

  2. Hi, The new brochure says the Excel has adaptive LED headlights with sequential indicators. Is this at the front which would be different to the rest of the range, and is it the same on the Orange Edition? I can’t find any reference to this other than the brief overview in the brochure, no pics/videos etc.

    1. Hi Rich,

      Thanks for getting in touch and for your interest in the new C-HR. Our Excel and dynamic grades, along with the orange edition are available with adaptive LED headlights. Sequential indicators aren’t available on any of the grades, and we are currently upgrading our brochures to show the correct information. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused by this.

      Thanks.

      1. Thanks for the information, I thought this was the case regarding the front indicators, however, I have seen reviews of a European Orange Edition with sequential indicators in the rear cluster. Could you explain this?

        1. Hi Rich,

          Thanks for getting back in touch. While we can’t comment on other markets, we can say that each market is different and will have a different specification.

          Thanks.

          1. Hi Rich,

            We are so sorry for any confusion caused by this. We have completed a full spec-check on the New C-HR and can confirm that the Excel, Dynamic and Orange Edition have rear sequential indicators, but not front sequential indicators. The Icon and Design grade have no sequential indicators.

            Once again we are sorry for any inconvenience caused by this, thank you for your patience.

            Thanks.

    1. Hi there,

      Thanks for your interest in the new C-HR. It isn’t available with a panoramic roof. We’re sorry you think it’s a bit dark, however maybe a test drive will change your mind.

      Thanks.

  3. Hi,

    Will any of the new CH-R 2020 models have Remote Connect or Entune etc to remote start / connect from Smart Devices, such as Watches and Phones?

    If it doesn’t can I put this forward as direct feedback, that would be a real positive and certainly tick a few boxes for a lot of people I imagine!

    Thanks

    1. Hi there,

      Thanks for your message. Unfortunately these features are only available in the US market. However, we will pass your feedback on to the product team here in the UK.

      Thanks.

  4. Hello, the spec for the 2020 C-HR has become available today but is still with limited information and the configurator is still not available. Please can you reveal if the car has power tailgate or not? Also does the powertrain come with Sport Mode and Paddle shifts? If you cannot answer this please advise who can as I wish to make a decision if to pre-order.

    1. Hi Robert,

      Thanks for your message. The new C-HR doesn’t come with power tailgate or paddle shifts. However, sport mode is available on all grades.

      Thanks.

        1. Hi there,

          Thanks for the message. It is still available using the controls on the steering wheel to scrolls across on the instrument panel to get to ‘driver mode’ and then click sport mode.

          Thanks.

  5. Hi you have said that the configurator would be be available today but it isn’t. Can you advise when it will be please?

    1. Hi Brent,

      Thanks for getting in touch. The C-HR configurator will be available on our website soon, however currently we have no timings to confirm. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused by this.

      Thanks.

      1. Sorry to bang on a bit about this but when you are an enthusiast and champing at the bit to get all the information to help make a decision to pre-order an Orange Edition or not, it’s very frustrating and the enthusiasm wanes.
        The configurator was advertised to be available on the 21st it is now the 24th and although we have to accept your apologies for the inconvenience can you attempt to find out why the delay and when it actually will be available.

        1. Hi Robert,

          Thanks for getting back in touch. We can fully appreciate your situation and we are happy to hear you are excited about the new C-HR. We are working to make the configurator available as soon as possible, however we can’t reveal an exact date at this time. Thank you for your patience while we work on this.

          Thanks.

  6. I’ve been waiting 3 weeks for the spec etc for this and what a letdown. No powertrain spec, perfomance info. No charts showing all the different features. Very disappointed.

    1. Hi Robert,

      Thanks for getting in touch. We don’t currently have a timeline to reveal regarding when this information will be available. However we can confirm the following specification details:
      1.8L VVT-i Auto Hybrid has a combined Co2 of 86 g/km and a fuel economy from 54.32 to 58.85 MPG
      2.0L VVT-i Auto Hybrid has a combined Co2 of 92 g/km and a fuel economy from 49.56 to 54.32 MPG

      Thanks.

  7. Hi I am looking to order the new Toyota ch-r can you tell me why Toyota cars in France only offer a 3year warranty on a euro spec car and Germany offer 5yrs,and if I order one in Germany and have it French registered will I get a 5yr warranty

    1. Hi Rob,

      Thanks for getting in touch. Unfortunately, we can’t comment on other markets only Toyota UK. We would recommend contacting Toyota in your region for further help with this.

      Thanks.

  8. Can you please advise whether the Excel model will have brown door inserts/dash/arm rest or has this been updated?

  9. When will details of boot space (and difference between 1.8 and 2.0 hybrids) be available. IF the boot space suffers the same reduction as on the Corolla then this could make it too small for my requirements.

  10. I’m interested in pre ordering…but is there any information on the INTERIOR colour schemes in the UK models?

    Are the door panels, dash upper etc. on the new Excel still brown, or will they be black?

    And what about the Dynamic?

  11. What’s the boot size going to be on the new 2.0l version and how is that different to the 1.8? Also what’s the expected acceleration difference between the two engines? Thanks.

  12. Looks very smart and will certainly check it out later in October when my local Toyota Centre get their MY20 C-HRs in. Be interested to specifically see whether NVH has improved and whether the headlights are adaptive and not just auto high beam.

  13. I’m currently waiting to place an order for the updated Model as my Company Car through Zenith Leasing, but want confirmation of the specs before I do so. Do you know when this will be available to dealers and the lease companies ? Also details of pricing etc.

  14. In the current climate of Cat thefts does the CHR have a tilt sensor alarm, if not will one soon be available as a retrofit?

  15. Should this not be referring to the 2020 MY CHR? We are already well into 2019 and on the Toyota website the engines available remain as before 1.2 petrol and 1.8 hybrid.

    Also, does this mean that Toyota is dropping the 1.2 petrol and with it the AWD option? Does this now mean that the CHR is 2WD only?

  16. Its a shame for us who have bought new cars like the corolla which until now dont have smartphone integration like Apple carplay and android auto. And new cars coming out have it as standard. What a shame. So does it mean you have to change/upgrade your car again.

    1. Hi Melvin,

      Thanks for getting in touch. We are working on smartphone integration across our UK model range and as soon as there are updates regarding other models they will be shared to our blog and social channels.

      Thanks.

  17. I’ve been waiting a long time to hear this news of the 2.0 litre. I am liking what I see especially the new DRL’s. (I think the current ones make it look sad). I have a few initial questions that I hope you can reveal answers to;
    Will it have a powered tailgate?
    Will it have paddle shifts and similar power-train layout as the Corolla?
    When will you publish a full spec and price list?
    When will deliveries of the 2.0l start.

    1. Hi Robert,

      Thanks for getting in touch. We’re glad to hear you’re a fan of the design updates. The powertrains available are now consistent with both RAV4 and Corolla with more details and the full spec and price list to be available soon. So while we can’t answer all of your questions at the moment, we can confirm that first deliveries can be expected at the start of January 2020.

      Thanks.

  18. Now that CHR has upgraded display with Apple Car Play and Android Auto, when will this be released for 2019 (latest) Prius please? Thx.

    1. Hi John,

      Thanks for getting in touch. We currently have no new information to reveal regarding Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for Prius. We are working hard on smartphone integration for our UK model range and new updates will be shared on our blog and social channels.

      Thanks.
