Well, if this isn't a bummer I don't know what is. The 2018 Toyota C-HR that will be heading to the US will only come with one engine size. That engine, unfortunately, will be a 2.0L four-banger that produces 144hp and 140 lb-ft of torque. FWD and transmitted through a CVT.

There's going to be two trim levels, XLE and XLE Premium which I think was mentioned in another thread.

Short recap - Standard features include 18" wheels, dual climate control, bucket seats, 7" display and Toyota Safety Sense P.

Bah Humbug.

and there's not AWD option either, so it's only front wheel drive for now. That's something I'll have to take into consideration as the winters are brutal. Any extra grip is needed.

This might be the case because they plan on making a hybrid version available for all we know. Then there was talk about Toyota wanting to ramp up "green car" efforts, so maybe we'll see more than one "green" powertrain setup. I say that because the CHR has whats needed to be part of that mold of high volume PHEV/EV/Hybrid

And here I was hoping for a 1.2L-Turbo 6MT AWD version.
I might even settle for the 2.0L version if it came with a 6MT and AWD with all the tech goodies.

Unfortunately the AWD is something you're going to have to miss out on. I as well was hoping for the AWD variant but this kinda put's a stump in those plans. :frown2:

In the UK, all three trims comes with Toyota's Safety Sense system with pre-collision braking, pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control lane departure warning and automatic headlamps. The top two trims get standard blind-spot monitoring and rear cross traffic alert. Maybe the same standard equipment would make its way to North America.

Maybe the states will get the 1.2-liter turbo at a later date. It's a pretty nice engine with a peak torque of 136 lb-ft and it's available mid-range, around 1500 rpm - 4000 rpm. It's supposed to feel faster than the factory estimated 0-62 mph time.

Don't you just love when a vehicle out does it's specs in real world testing. Makes you feel more accomplished lol. That being said, a 1.2L turbo release down the line would be great, the only problem is do I want to grab the 2.0 when it comes out or wait and hope that the 1.2 comes soon enough
