2020 Overseas spec C-HR 2.0L Hybrid Review
I don't know about anyone else. But I as a North American consumer feel really cheated now with this 2020 update. The Euro market gets a brand new 2.0L hybrid engine producing 180HP. What do we get? Minor accessory and cosmetic changes. The Euro market also gets updated suspension and steering feel changes. Remains to be seen if the North American spec cars will see any of these updates.
The reviewer said Toyota spent 50 million Euros in producing the 2020 Euro/overseas spec updated C-HR. I don't think Toyota spent even a tenth of that amount of money developing the 2020 North American spec version. This is just sad. And adds further insult to injury on how the overseas market C-HRs have so many more options than the North American spec from engine/drivetrain options to other options such as park distance sensors. Yes, the overseas markets have had park distance sensors which we in North America can't even option in to our cars. And while the Infotainment system sucks world wide. At least for the overseas market head units, you could do a Mirrorlink connection to the head unit directly mirroring your smart phone's screen display effectively negating the full need to have Carplay or Android Auto. I added Mirrorlink to my BMW and by doing this negated any desire/need to have Carplay or Android Auto for that car.
If anyone at Toyota USA/Canada even cares enough to see this thread, I hope you understand the lower sales numbers in the North America compared to the overseas markets is due to how badly you've neutered this car for the North American market.
