C-HR North American Debut



Toyota’s 2018 C-HR made an appearance at the Paris show several weeks ago and now it is North America’s turn.

The North American spec C-HR, formerly known as the Scion iR, will debut at the upcoming Los Angeles auto show on November 17. We don’t know which powertrains the American market will be getting, but the rest of the world will have three variants to choose from.

There’s the two gasoline options; a 115 hp 1.2-liter turbocharged engine that can be paired to a 6-speed manual gearbox or a CVT automatic, and a 150 hp 2.0-liter engine that only comes with CVT. The third powertrain is a gas-hybrid equipped with a 1.8-liter four-cylinder and electric motor for 120hp. Similar to the UK spec C-HR, North America could be getting three trim options; Icon, Excel and Dynamic. Also, front-wheel drive will most likely come standard and all-wheel drive should be optional.

The C-HR may be a compact, but its size places it between categories at 171.7 in. (4,360 mm) long, 70.7 in. (1,795 mm) wide, 1,550 mm (61 in.) tall, and a 103.9 in. (2,640 mm) wheelbase. CarScoops did a size comparison and found it to be larger than a Juke, but smaller than the Rav-4.

Once on sale, the C-HR will have to compete with likes of Honda HR-V, Fiat 500X, Jeep Renegade, and Mazda CX-3.

I hope we get the 150 hp 2.0-liter engine here, don't mind the CVT as long as I get more power! Also hope they let people inside so we can get first person account of the interior space and layout.

I'm actually looking towards the 1.2L Turbocharged engine, less horsepower, but just because I know there's a lot of potential, a simple tune should yield some good numbers. I'm very finnicky and especially these days with the drive by wire system having a lag, I'd want to get rid of that asap anyways.

Hybrid in Excel trim for me, I'd like to own something sporty like the C-hr but with amazing fuel economy. Power is secondary to me compared to fuel economy.

It's definitely hitting the best of both worlds I think. It looks like a sporty-swift type of vehicle but can still deliver that very giving fuel economy.

Win-Win situation

depends on how much the MSRP is and what kind of rebates I can get to make it more affordable. Sometimes the fuel money saved won't cover the extra cost of a hybrid.
