More Australia details for the 2017 Toyota C-HR range have been revealed ahead of the little SUV’s launch in the first quarter of next year, thanks to a brochure on the company’s Australian website.
A two-tier range will be offered in Australia, and it seems both will be highly specified and offer several exterior personalisation options.
Kicking off the range is the entry-level C-HR, which features front and rear parking sensors, 17-inch alloy wheels, forward collision warning, heated folding side mirrors, satellite navigation, LED daytime-running lights and LED fog lights, rear-view camera, hill-start assist, automatic power windows, multifunction steering wheel and adaptive cruise control.
The entry model will also feature a 4.2-inch driver’s instrument display, automatic high-beam, six-speaker sound system, dual-zone climate control, autonomous emergency braking (AEB), lane departure alert, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, automatic wipers and fabric seats.
Stepping up to the top-spec Koba grade adds leather trim, LED headlights, keyless entry and start, heated front seats, privacy glass, LED tail-lights, blue ambient lighting, 18-inch alloy wheels and the option of a two-tone exterior colour scheme.
Both models are powered by a 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine, which produces 85kW of power and 185Nm of torque, mated to either a six-speed manual or continuously-variable transmission (CVT).
Eight different colours are available, with six of them offered with the option of a contrasting roof. The hues include Shadow Platinum silver (optional black roof), Tidal Blue (optional white roof), Bionic Bronze (optional white roof), Crystal Pearl white (optional black roof), Hornet Yellow (optional black or white roof), Ink black, Electric Teal (optional white roof) and Atomic Rush red.
The information shown here comes in addition to details handed down in September.
Pricing is still to be revealed, though Toyota has previously said it plans to position the C-HR at the ‘premium’ end of the segment, which could suggest a circa-$25,000 starting point.
