Toyota CH-R Features

The 2018 Toyota CH-R may have gotten its world debut at 2016 Geneva Auto Show, but fans recently got their first glance at the new, segment-defying vehicle on American soil at the Los Angeles Auto Show, where the vehicle was on full display.

This compact-sized vehicle has the makings of an SUV in a much smaller package, making it ideal for young drivers and small families. Its chief competitors are likely to be the Chevy Trax, Nissan Juke, and other similarly-sized models.

The new Toyota CH-R’s features include a 2-liter, four-cylinder engine that produces 144 horsepower and 140 lb-ft of torque, and the new pint-sized sports utility vehicle is built on the same foundational structure of the much-loved Toyota Prius.

While we don’t yet know pricing for the vehicle, we do know that it will come with the many standard safety features that Toyota Safety Sense has to offer, such as Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning, and Adaptive Cruise Control.

If you would like to learn more about the upcoming 2018 Toyota CH-R or would just like to check out the many other vehicles that Toyota has to offer, contact us or visit us any time here at Capital Toyota in Chattanooga, TN.
