The smallest crossover in the Toyota family is C-HR. Its name stands for Compact High Rider. And it surely best describes the SUV. The upcoming 2019 Toyota C-HR is not going to disappoint. This vehicle, although it belongs to subcompact class, is pretty spacious. Well, not as its bigger siblings, but the layout can hardly be better. Furthermore, the interior is packed with the latest technologies. To fix the mistake from the previous season, smartphone connectivity is a priority. So, in the 2019 year model, we will find services for two major platforms, Apple and Android.
Exterior and engine room are nothing less exciting. The appearance of the 2019 Toyota C-HR is strong and bold. However, many people will like it, and many won’t. The biggest news for upcoming crossover is a hybrid engine for the US market. With it, the C-HR will join Rav4 and Highlander in this class. All in all, we are looking for more updates about specs of this SUV.
2019 Toyota C-HR Interior
The cabin of the subcompact crossover is magnificent. No one would ever guess it is so small vehicle from the cabin. The 2019 Toyota C-HR will keep the similar layout and add few more features. Depending on trim levels, buyers will find plenty of equipment. However, the current model lacks Android Auto and Apple CarPlay services. Due to complaints, Toyota sets adding these features as the priority for 2019 C-HR.
Toyota C-HR Trim Levels

While there are only two vehicles in North American dealerships, European customers can choose between nine. The XLE is entry-level, and XLE Premium are other solution in the United States. In Europe, buyers will have a wider choice, including four hybrids C-ENTER, C-LUB, C-ULT, and C-HIC. The only trim that doesn’t appear in plug-in variant is C-ITY.

Existing 2.0-liter petrol unit could be electrified also.
