Toyota South Africa has added a range-topping 1.2T Luxury derivative to its C-HR compact family car range. Here are the specs and prices of the consolidated line-up.
The C-HR was launched in our market in early 2017 and the distinctively styled crossover has proven quite popular among fashion-conscious urbanites. For 2018, Toyota South Africa has introduced a flagship version that boasts more equipment and safety features as standard.
Visually, the 1.2T Luxury derivative is distinguishable by a two-tone paint finish, but the key changes feature in the newcomer's interior. Additional standard equipment includes leather trim, push-button start, seat-back pockets, heated seats, LED headlamps, LED front fog lights and tail light clusters, colour-coded auto-folding and heated side mirrors, park distance control and intelligent park assist. The safety spec has improved too... Whereas other C-HR derivatives have only two airbags, the 1.2T Luxury comes equipped with driver-, passenger-, side-, curtain- and knee airbags.
The powertrain remains unchanged. The 2018 Toyota C-HR 1.2T Luxury is powered by a 1.2-litre 4-cylinder turbopetrol motor that produces 85 kW and 185 Nm; it drives the front wheels via a continuously variable (automatic) transmission. Fuel economy is claimed to be 6.4 L/100 km.
