New Toyota C-HR 2021 pricing and specs detailed: Update makes Hyundai Kona, Mazda CX-30 rival dearer

Toyota Australia has increased the C-HR’s pricing as part of an update for the small SUV.

All C-HR variants are up $750, meaning the line-up now kicks off from $30,290 plus on-road costs and tops out at $37,190 (see full pricing table below).

Speaking to CarsGuide, a Toyota Australia spokesperson confirmed a minor update for the small SUV, with its unnamed entry-level grade gaining keyless entry and start to match its Koba flagship.

Furthermore, the model’s autonomous emergency braking (AEB) system now detects cyclists (day) in addition to pedestrians and other vehicles (day and night), while steering assist has joined lane departure warning and lane-keep assist.

The Toyota Australia spokesperson added the Hyundai Kona and Mazda CX-30 rival’s price rise was otherwise prompted by “external market forces”, including exchange-rate pressures.

For reference, petrol versions are powered by an 85kW/185Nm 1.2-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which is exclusively mated to a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). Front- and all-wheel-drive variants of it are available across both grades.

The sole hybrid version combines a 1.8-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine running on the Atkinson cycle and two electric motors for a combined power output of 90kW. This Koba-only ‘self-charging’ combination is matched to an e-CVT and front-wheel drive.
