The new generation of the smallest Honda crossover is drawing a lot of attention. First of all, there is a unique and distinctive look. Also, the plan is to make the 2020 Toyota C-HR cheaper for the entry-level model. However, upgrades on the high end will make is more expensive at the same time. The new crossover is not changing a lot on its look. But, the revisit of the entire lineup will refresh the offer.
First of all, the 2020 Toyota C-HR will get new colors. Each trim level will add or remove some of its paintjobs. Also, the feature list is longer, especially for the Limited model. However, the entry-level LE version is not expecting such upgrades. Instead, Toyota will make a small discount from the current price. The C-HR could start under $20,000 in future. The crossover is finally getting an all-wheel drive mode and this is the major upgrade for the upcoming season.
2020 Toyota C-HR Limited, XLE, LE Configurations
The 2020 Toyota C-HR LE is the base model. It offers a 7-inch touchscreen display at the center of the dashboard. The new look of the control panel will add more transparency. Under the display are controls for the dual-zone climate. Bluetooth and USB ports are standard.
Upper configurations bring more features for 2020 Toyota C-HR. the XLE model adds bigger wheels outside and leather steering wheel inside. Also, outside mirrors have heating. Entune infotainment system with Apple CarPlay will be added for the XLE model.
Top of the class configuration is going to be 2020 Toyota C-HR Limited. This model costs $7,000 more than the base LE and $5,000 more than the XLE. Some of the certain upgrades are leather upholstery and seats, sport wheels, and LED fog lights.
2020 Toyota C-HR Specs and Hybrid
The 2020 Toyota C-HR will use the same 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine as before. It is a small unit, but it still manages to deliver 144 hp and 139 lb-ft of torque. The Toyota C-HR will improve Sport driving mode and manual shifting mode for automatic transmission. These were almost worthless features on the previous edition. The subcompact vehicle is not too powerful, so fans don’t expect some outstanding acceleration and performance.
One of the additions for the 2020 Toyota C-HR could be a hybrid model. However, there is no official word about it. Engineers could use a standard 2.0-liter unit to pair it with an electric battery. The main goal is to boost gas mileage from the current 29 mpg combined rating. We expect from the next Rav4 to get the similar setup.
2020 Toyota C-HR AWD
After so many rumors, the 2020 Toyota C-HR AWD is finally coming. We expected it in 2019, but the Japanese carmaker failed to deliver it. However, we could hear promises that further delays won’t happen. So, the 2020 Toyota C-HR AWD could be a star of the lineup next season.
2020 Toyota C-HR Release Date and Price
Edition for 2019 had no major upgrades and it arrived pretty early. The company will now put the focus on the next, 2020 Toyota C-HR. Upgrades such AWD and hybrid model are big. Before they become official, at least the announcements, the crossover will go through numerous tests. The Toyota C-HR for 2020 won’t arrive in next year or so.
As said, the price goes down, and the base models will cost under $20,000. From upgrades, the final value could vary. Top of the range is the Limited model. With hybrid drivetrain and AWD, it will cost close to $30,000.
