New C-HR Base Trim Pricing Starts At $20,945



Perhaps driven by the limited success the C-HR has seen ever since it went on sale last year, Toyota is looking to make their compact crossover more appealing by offering a more affordable model for 2019, one that will have a starting price of $21,990, including the $1,045 destination charge.

By adding a new entry-level trim, the C-HR will be $1,505 cheaper than the XLE variant though it’s still pricier than current segment rivals like the Honda HR-V with a starting price of $19,670 and Jeep Renegade at $18,445.

While customers will save around a grand by choosing the new LE trim, CarScoops says they’ll have to forgo some of the features offered by the XLE including the 18-inch wheels, unique roof options and the Blue Flame paint color. At least some standard safety features are still in place so you’ll be getting then high trim’s automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, automatic high beams and adaptive cruise control systems.

What may turn potential buyers away is the lack of blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, which does come free with the purchase of a XLE or Limited model.

To widen the price gap between the three trims, both the XLE and Limited saw a price increase of $530 compared to last year, bumping up the latter’s MSRP to $27,045.

So it appears the limited will be a new for the US as of 2019. Leather, upgraded radio with Navi option and a few extras.

some addtl info
The smallest and most polarizing crossover of Toyota is getting price adjustments and new entry-level variant for 2019. This will bring the C-HR nearer the price point of its segment rivals, which the company hopes to undercut.

This new pricing and variant choices are seen on order guides, as revealed by CarsDirect. The C-HR’s new base level LE trim will have a price tag of $21,990 (including a $1,045 destination charge), which is $1,505 less than the XLE – the previous entry-level variant. This will put the model on the same ground with the $525-cheaper Honda HR-V.

However, the new base model naturally gets less toys than the previous one. The LE trim will only have 17-inch steel rims and won’t have the blind spot monitors, while color options will exclude the new Blue Flame and the white/black roof choices.

Good news is, all C-HRs will still come with Toyota Safety Sense P that includes automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, and auto-high beams. The 2019 C-HR will also support Apple CarPlay and will have Toyota’s latest version of Entune 3.0 infotainment system.

The entry-level C-HR may be more affordable by many car buyers, but the its range-toppers will get a price hike, albeit, with added features to make up for the higher price tag. The XLE trim will go up by $530, bringing it to $24,025. This increase will give you a smart key, 18-inch wheels, lighted vanity mirrors, auto-folding mirrors, and puddle illumination.

The Limited trim, on the other hand, gets heftier, and will sell for $27,045. With that, you’ll get black or brown leather seats with driver's side power lumbar support, a better Entune 3.0 Premium, seat back pockets and available rain-sensing wipers. Its aesthetics will be upgraded as well to separate it from the herd of C-HRs, such as chrome window accents, piano black B-pillars, and a “red bumper garnish.”

So it looks like the updated XLE trim is replacing the premium trim and the only thing it looses from the old premium is powered lumbar, but comes in at a cheaper price than premium and includes the newer radio. Seems like a pretty good deal. I don't care about the powered lumbar but I'd really like that new radio. I wonder if we will be able to swap the new radio with our currently very dated one?

Further notes, it looks like the updated XLE trim price of 24,025 is including destination. That would place it over a grand cheaper than the current premium which is a steal if all it's loosing is powered lumbar. Kinda sucks for those of us that purchased the current premium model as the new XLE will be cheaper and better thanks again to the updated infotainment.

its does not say anything about the fog lights or heated seats being on the new 2019 XLE which was on the premium vs standard XLE for 2018.

I like the idea of the Brown leather to change up the interior coloring.
