When you think of a small car, you’re likely not thinking of an SUV. However, the 2018 Toyota C-HR offers Canonsburg, McMurray, and Washington drivers a ton of amenities and technology in a far smaller package than most of its competitors.
If you’d like to know what defines the C-HR, then check out this review by our team at South Hills Toyota.
If you live in a more crowded area and have to contend with narrow streets, then choosing a smaller car can really revolutionize the way you drive. And that’s just what the 2018 Toyota C-HR aims to do.
In this SUV, passengers will have 83.8 cubic feet of space total, with an extra 19 cubic feet in the back for cargo. And up front, drivers will still have 38.1 inches of headroom and 43.4 inches of legroom.
Despite its more compact size, the C-HR squeezes far more amenities into the cabin than you might imagine. Drivers will benefit from features like the auto-dimming rearview mirror with integrated backup camera and the Smart Key system. This particular system includes keyless entry and push-button start.
You’ll have plenty of entertainment features, too. The C-HR comes standard with a 7-inch touchscreen, six speakers, and Bluetooth® connectivity.
If you’re concerned with this SUV’s safety, then you don’t have much to worry about. It comes with plenty of different features to protect you and your passengers, starting with the Star Safety System™.
The Star Safety System™ includes common features like stability and traction controls. However, it also comes with Smart Stop technology, which will automatically turn the engine on and off during idling periods to conserve fuel.
Next, you’ll have the more advanced Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P). TSS-P includes features that can both monitor and react to the road for you, such as Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control.
One of the great things about having a car with a smaller engine is that it’s going to burn less fuel. For example, in the 2018 Toyota C-HR, you’ll be able to maintain 31 highway MPG and 27 city MPG.1
One of the ways in which this is achieved is with help from the continuously variable transmission (CVT) with intelligence. CVTs are notoriously quieter and smoother than regular transmissions, and consume less fuel.
Nevertheless, the engine in the 2018 Toyota C-HR can still generate up to 144 horsepower. So, when the time comes for a bit of extra speed, you’re still going to have it.
Being one of the newer models in the Toyota lineup, this might be one of your first times really hearing about the 2018 Toyota C-HR. If that’s the case, then you’ll have to see it in person. Schedule a test drive today!
