Toyota C-HR specs and price confirmed, Thailand CBU, 1.8L CVT for RM145,500

UMW Toyota (UMWT) has released the official specification and pricing details of the long-awaited Toyota C-HR. As promised earlier, our local-spec C-HR is offered in a sole 1.8-litre naturally aspirated variant priced at RM145,500, on-the-road without insurance.

While the price point is RM30k cheaper than parallel imported units (RM176k – RM185k), the C-HR still costs a hefty premium over its main rivals such as the Honda HR-V (RM117k), Mazda CX-3 (RM138k) and Subaru XV (RM137k).

Visually, Malaysian bound C-HR will come equipped with automatic halogen projector headlamps with LED daytime running lights, front and rear fog lamps, LED combination taillamps, puddle lamps, shark fin antenna and 17-inch five-spoke alloy wheels wrapped in 215/60 profile tyres. A total of five colours are available White Pearl CS, Metal Stream Metallic, Attitude Black Mica while Blue Metallic and Red Mica are the only options that come with black roof and mirrors.

Inside, you’ll find leather upholstery, three-spoke multifunctional steering wheel, keyless entry and start, 7-inch DVD-AVX touchscreen infotainment system, reverse camera, six speakers, dual-zone automatic climate control, electrochromic rear-view mirror and electronic parking brake. Despite the lengthy list of creature comfort items, you’ll still get manual levelling seats.

Under the hood, you’ll get a 1.8-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder paired to a CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) that deploys 138 hp and 171 Nm of torque to drive the front wheels. No turbocharging or hybrid options here.

As for safety, the C-HR comes with a comprehensive suite of seven airbags, Traction Control, ABS with EBD, Brake Assist, Hill-Start Assist Control, Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, front and rear parking sensors and Tyre Pressure Monitoring System.

Unfortunately, UMWT does not offer the Toyota Safety Sense P that comes with Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control and Automatic High Beams. You’d have to turn to for that.

Like all models distributed by UMWT, the fully-imported (from Thailand) Toyota C-HR a comes with a 5-Years Unlimited Mileage Warranty package. With the price list available on their official website, it would mean the official launch will happen very, very soon.
