Toyota C-HR 101: FAQs We LOVE to Answer

With a diamond-like angular shape and no shortage of sporting features, the Toyota C-HR is a cutting-edge vehicle with plenty of appeal. This sporty, agile car looks great, feels smooth, and boasts plenty of advanced built-in technological features that make it a dream to drive.  

We LOVE answering questions about the Toyota C-HR. Here are our answers to some of the questions we hear most frequently.  

What does CH-R stand for?

C-HR stands for both “Compact High Rider” and “Cross Hatch Run-about.”  

That’s right. The Toyota C-HR is a crossover SUV, combining a compact design and high stance with the benefits of hatchbacks and crossover SUVs. This car offers the best of both worlds, making it a great choice for all kinds of drivers.  

What’s the difference between a C-HR and a C-HR Koba?

The C-HR and the C-HR Koba share a number of similarities, including their compact high-ride design and their sporty look. But the C-HR Koba offers a few additional features for drivers looking for a little something extra. These features include: 

  • 18” alloy wheels  
  • LED headlamps  
  • LED rear combination lamps  
  • Leather accented seats  
  • Heated front seats  
  • Power lumbar adjustment on driver’s seat 
  • Privacy glass (rear and rear side windows) 
  • Panoramic view monitor 
  • Nanoe Air-Conditioning Technology 
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert with automatic breaking features. 

That’s not to mention external design features like optional two-tone paint and illuminated door trim and vanity mirrors. These style choices help the C-HR Koba stand out on the road. 

What are the Toyota C-HR specs and dimensions?

Engine: 1.8L in-line 4-cylinder hybrid 

Motor: 2WD petrol 

Total system power: 90kW 

Fuel: 4.3L/100km 

CO2: 97g/km 

Safety rating: 5 stars 

Does the C-HR come as a hybrid?

The C-HR comes as a hybrid in the Koba and GR Sport, with buyers free to choose between the models. Each model offers a unique set of features, both in terms of design and drive, so there’s something to suit every driver.  

The C-HR hybrid model brings the power and range of a conventional engine together with the environmental benefits of an electric motor. At take-off and low speeds, the C-HR hybrid can run on electric power only, meaning zero fuel consumption or exhaust emissions.  

The C-HR hybrid’s electric motor can send power to a generator to recharge and can rely on its regenerative braking system to draw energy, meaning drivers never need to plug in to a mains supply.  

Is the C-HR fuel efficient?

The Toyota CH-R offers fuel consumption from 4.3 to 6.5L/100km. The car has great fuel economy, fit for travelling along a combination of urban and open roads. Drivers enjoy opportunities to save on fuel costs and get plenty of mileage out of each tank.  

Does the CH-R have turbo?

The petrol version of the CH-R has a turbo engine, while the hybrid model sticks to a 4-cylinder hybrid engine.  

Is the Toyota C-HR a good family car?

The Toyota CH-R is sporty, agile and compact, making it a great vehicle for families heading out on the open road. The car’s design makes for easy manoeuvrability – perfect for hard-to-navigate roads and difficult-to-reach adventures. The CH-R is carefully designed to be easy to drive, a feature that’s popular among singles and families alike. 

However, the Toyota C-HR is small, making it a better fit for smaller families who travel light, rather than larger groups who plan to pack plenty. The C-HR is lauded as a great second car for families, as it does have room to accommodate light luggage, and its sporty style looks nice while it drives beautifully. 

Is the C-HR a good car for the Sunshine Coast?

The CH-R is perfect for trips on the Sunshine Coast! The vehicle has a great reputation for handling, making it a great fit for Sunshine Coast Hinterland roads, which can be tricky to navigate in bulkier models.
