Toyota Australia has recently announced the arrival of the all-new 2017 C-HR on local market, the compact SUV coming with plethora of high-end features at the exterior and inside, and an interesting engine lineup under the hood.
I personally find the all-new 2017 Toyota C-HR extremely appealing and aggressive with the new design language, the model being the perfect competitor against the likes of the new Mazda CX-3 and Mitsubishi ASX.
In the Land Down Under, the new C-HR is offered with both a manual and an automatic transmission, with Aussie Performance Drive auto magazine releasing the full prices and specs for all variant.
2017 Toyota C-HR – Full Prices:
2017 Toyota C-HR manual FWD – $26,990
2017 Toyota C-HR CVT auto FWD – $28,990
2017 Toyota C-HR CVT auto AWD – $30,990
2017 Toyota C-HR Koba CVT auto FWD – $33,290
2017 Toyota C-HR Koba CVT auto AWD – $35,290.
In the engine department, the new C-HR is ready to tackle its competition with a new 1.2-liter turbo-petrol flat-four cylinder engine, with 85 kW and 185 Nm of torque, paired to a six manual or a CVT tranmission.
The model`s both variants – the C-HR and the C-HR KOBA – can also be had with a 2WD and an AWD, adding as well a CVT in the top of the line variant. The consumption is also looking good – 6.3L / 100 km in the standard version and 6.5L / 100 km in the C-HR KOBA. You can find full details about both variants below.
