Toyota Admits The C-HR Could Be Faster

What if we were to tell you, Toyota has a more powerful version of the C-HR, but it’s not going to be on sale anytime soon?

Currently, the United States will only be getting the 144-hp naturally aspirated 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine paired with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT).

Europe on the other hand will have a choice of two more powertrains on top of the 2.0L, a 1.2L turbo engine and a gas-electric hybrid. The turbo may have less ponies at 144-hp, but its 137 lb-ft of torque kicks in at just 1500 rpm compared to the 2.0L ‘s 3800 rpm. As to why Toyota won’t bring the hybrid variant across the pond, Chief engineer Hiroyuki Koba told Car And Driver that they just don’t think there’s a demand for it in the U.S.

No matter which powertrain a customer choses, they all have nearly identical zero-to-62-mph times of 11.0 seconds. But Toyota could do better.

There are no plans for a more powerful engine release yet, but it is possible. According to Koda, he test drove a C-HR prototype at the Nürburgring this year and it was equipped with a 1.2L turbo that’s tuned to produce 160-hp, so the possibility is there.

Maybe we’ll see it released as a performance trim in the future.

yea, but we won't see it for a long while. Toyota would want to sell the 2.0L, 1.2L. and hybrid models first before announcing anything concrete. If they were to say a more powerful C-HR is on the way, people would just wait for the preferable engine choice and that'll take sales away from the other 3.
