The subcompact crossover drew a lot of attention with its futuristic design. Ever since it appeared in the US, its sales numbers are rising. But, one thing is missing – an all-wheel drive.

Unfortunately, and AWD crossover will consume more fuel. But, the subcompact model has n reason to worry about, since it is already one of the most efficient vehicles in the segment. Of course, the price will go slightly up.

The 2020 Toyota C-HR AWD will use the same engine as the standard model. That is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit capable to produce 145 hp and 140 lb-ft of torque. The base configuration includes a CVT transmission and the front-wheel drive. The AWD will be available from the next season. The fuel economy will stay at a high level. For the FWD it is 27/31 mpg, and the all-wheel drive will probably come with 26/30 mpg. Towing capacity remains the same, but the company recommends not to tow a trailer with C-HR.
Toyota C-HR AWD Hybrid
European buyers can already purchase the C-HR with a hybrid drivetrain. It uses a 1.8-liter four-cylinder petrol engine as the base for the electric system. However, neither Euro-spec C-HR is offering an AWD. Combined gas mileage is over 60 mpg. The hybrid system can develop 100 hp and 105 lb-ft of torque. We believe that 2020 Toyota C-HR AWD hybrid for the US will use a 2.0-liter petrol engine. In this case, the crossover will gain extra power and torque. Totals should be better than for the standard unit.
