I'm hoping it's possible to replace the SUCK OEM radio in my new 2018 XLE Premium - with the new E-Tune 3.0 Premium radio they put in the 2019 CHRs … Took delivery yesterday, just spent my first full afternoon sitting in the thing staring in disbelief at the limited stock radio features … How can they call this thing Premium with THAT radio.

… Please. :eek:

Looks like maybe a waiting game … After checking parts.toyota.com, looks like you can buy a replacement 2018 "base" radio … perhaps the same will be true of the 2019 ver. eventually …

Part Number: PT5461C182

This is a Base Audio With Steering Wheel Audio Controls for C-HR.

Totally agree with you that it is a crappy radio! Hopefully the upgrade won't be too expensive (I'm sure it will)

Ya it sucks, but I found that whenI changed the vehicle setting to im and powerful mode it actually sounds pretty good. Hope this helps.

add a hi/low converter (for example Audio Control Lc7i), switch out the speakers, add a subwoofer & have them powered by an amp. The finished result - AMAZING.
