Toyota Australia has today announced that it will bring its new-generation C-HR small SUV to our local market in the first quarter of 2024. 

With the switch to an all-hybrid lineup, the price of entry has grown a substantial $12,075 to $42,990 before on-road costs for the GXL, the new C-HR will be available with the choice of three variants from launch: GXL, Koba and GR Sport.

Pricing will top out at $54,990 before on-road costs for the flagship GR Sport, a significant price difference of $17,325 over the last-generation $37,665 GR Sport.

The new C-HR will go head to head with other small SUV rivals such as the Volkswagen T-Roc, Subaru Crosstrek, the Hyundai Kona and Toyota’s own Corolla Cross

What powers the new C-HR? Hybrid

The next-generation Toyota C-HR is powered by hybrid powertrains exclusively, with the GLX and Koba variants gaining fifth-generation front-drive hybrid setups that produce 103kW of power with a combination of a 1.8-litre four-cylinder petrol engine and electric power.

Both powertrains will be mated to CVT automatic transmissions and feature new lithium-ion battery packs with, according to Toyota, 14 percent greater output than before.
