Back when Scion still existed, the brand offered well rounded packages for a reasonable price and the C-HR would have been released under this badge if it hadn’t been axed. While the C-HR has been rebadged as a Toyota, the sporty crossover remains faithful to the Scion pricing and equipment formula as shown in the Japanese automaker’s latest press release.

Hitting dealerships next month, the base model C-HR in XLE trim will start from $23,460 including the $960 destination charge. For that price, customers will be getting plenty of standard features, such as a safety package that includes a pre-collision system, pedestrian detection, lane-departure alert with steering assist, and full-range radar cruise control. That’s in addition to a few creature comforts like the dual-zone climate control, electric parking brake, leather-wrapped steering wheel, auto-dimming rearview mirror with backup camera, front bucket seats, 7-inch infotainment screen, and a set of 18-inch alloy wheels.

One step up is the XLE Premium trim which come in at $25,310 with shipping. What customers get in addition to the laundry list of standard features are paint matched door handles with touch-sensor lock and unlock capability, front fog lights, power side mirrors with turn signals, blind spot warning indicators, puddle lights, rear cross traffic alert, smart key with push-button start, heated front seats, and more.

There’s only two trims available for the C-HR, but for an extra $500 customers can get the R-Code two-tone model. It comes with a white painted roof, side mirrors and A-pillar. The R-Code is available with Blue Eclipse Metallic, Ruby Flare Pearl, and model exclusive Radiant Green Mica.

No matter the trim, every vehicle will come with the same naturally aspirated 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine.

The R-Code model sounded great for just $500, and then I saw what a white roof and accents would look like on a blue C-HR and I'm suddenly no longer a fan of it. It'll probably only work with the Radiant Green Mica because it doesn't look that great with blue and probably won't look good with red either.



With the small price difference, you may as well spring for the Premium trim. What I don't see is any mention of remote start, something I would prefer to have in my vehicle for those cold winter months when I need to warm up the cabin.

Remote start is definitely something that means a lot to me, especially as I get older and the cold begins to get on my nerves even more. That white top definitely isn't my look though. Definitely something that belongs on a much more retro vehicle as that's where it initially started. This... not one of them.

XLE premium trim it is for me.

Lack of remote start won't deter me from the C-HR, but it would be nice to have. The price difference between the XLE and Premium trims are not that high and I may as well spring for the latter just because of those heated seats and the eight-way adjustable power lumbar driver’s seat, unless I can get it as a separate package or accessory with the XLE trim.

Well, I'm glad we finally have additional info on the US version... and at last, ample C-HR reviews in English on YouTube! I'm definitely interested in buying the C-HR although I'm really disappointed that the black roof won't be available here... it certainly looks sharp on overseas versions! I can't imagine the white roof being very popular but to each his own! Also, I really wish leather seats were available... but I can overlook those two features to have the awesome 'break away' styling of the C-HR!
