While carrying on with the Toyota’s reputation for reliability, the newly designed 2018 C-HR pushes style boundaries with its edgy and forward-looking character. The diamond-like angles, cantilevered spoiler, and C-pillar rear handles that merge into the door prove to be much more than just decorative; they cut through the air with aerodynamic efficiency to maximize fuel economy. New C-HR crossover owners can even adorn the SUV’s exterior with such colors as Blue Eclipse Metallic, Ruby Flare Pearl, Radiant Green Mica, and a statement-making R-code color that combines a white roof with a colorful body.
But beauty isn’t all this first-ever Toyota C-HR offers. Here’s what else you’ll discover about the new SUV when shopping at our Toyota dealerships in Newton, NJ.
Nothing Routine About Performance
Expect at least a manufacturer-estimated 31 MPG on the highway and 27 MPG in the city from the 2.0-liter Dynamic Force inline-4. The Continuously Variable Transmission with intelligence and Shift Mode (CVTi-S) grants you smooth transitions, and it also includes Sequential Shiftmatic Mode to give you manual control over its seven “virtual” gears. When you want race-car thrills, activate Sport Mode to sharpen acceleration from “fast” to “whoa.”
Increasing the C-HR’s responsiveness is a MacPherson front strut and suspension as well as SACHS dampers that include angled strut bearings and a large stabilizer bar. The double-wishbone suspension in the rear also uses SACHS shock absorbers with urethane upper supports to smooth out the ride around all those twisty-turny corners you’ll find in Hampton Township, NJ.
Safety First (Always)
With seating for five and numerous safety technologies, this crossover makes for an ideal family car. The Star Safety System™ includes Traction Control, Vehicle Stability Control, anti-lock brakes, Electronic Brake-force Distribution, and Brake Assist to all trims. The available Blind Spot Monitor informs you with a warning signal on your outside mirror when a car is running just beyond your peripheral vision.
When you backpedal your C-HR in reverse, the integrated rearview camera projects live video from behind your bumper and onto the auto-dimming rearview mirror, which also eliminates bothersome glare at night. Available Rear Cross-Traffic Alert warns you about vehicles crossing your rearward path, as well.
Tons of Technology
The 2018 Toyota C-HR surrounds you and your passengers with luxurious and convenient features.
With a Smart Key System in your pocket, just approach the high-tier C-HR XLE Premium, and its power mirrors fold out to invite you inside by projecting the “Toyota C-HR” logo on the ground—these are called “puddle lights,” but our Newton Toyota dealers think of them as welcome mats. These outside mirrors even automatically fold inward when the car is in park and locked. You can also unlock the front doors or liftgate while keeping the key in your pocket or purse. Once inside, put your foot on the brake and press the “Start Engine” button to rev up Toyota’s newest powerplant.
From the driver’s seat, you can check between the two gauges in front of the steering wheel to gaze at the 4.2-inch TFT Multi-Information Display. Speed freaks can monitor this display for operational data such as average mpg, driving modes, outside temperature, and other trip info.
Rising out from the center of the dashboard is a 7-inch touchscreen display. By swiping and tapping, you can control such infotainment features as the AM/FM radio, your Bluetooth®-compatible smartphone, and the Aha Radio™ app, which boasts over 100,000 radio stations. Six speakers surround you with clear sound.
Luxury emanates from the standard leather-trimmed steering wheel and satin-plated shift knob, which act as accents to the diamond-inspired interior. You and your front passenger can set your own temperature levels with dual-zone automatic climate control, which seamlessly adjusts to changes in outside temperature. To ward away the cold, New Jersey winter, upgrade to the C-HR XLE Premium for its available three-level heating system. And for added convenience, fold down the 60/40-split rear to expand cargo space when you need to carry a load of groceries or sports equipment.
