The 2020 Toyota C-HR is a unique and compact sport coupe crossover with a convenient hatchback accessed cargo area. The design of the C-HR is definitely updated to stand out from the crowd of compact crossovers. The front end is boldly sculpted with a low and wide grille and striking LED headlamps. The look of the car is one that even a college bound teenager can wrap her head around.
The Toyota C-HR is actually a perfect college car. It isn’t too big, but still has adequate room for transporting college essentials, especially with the signature Toyota fold down rear seats to expand the hatchback area. The car blends sporty styling with the utility and versatility of a crossover. This vehicle is especially great for cruising around urban environments or a college campus. And, it is easy to park in standard or compact spaces.
Equally as important as the design are the standard Toyota Safety Sense P™ (TSS-P) and STAR Safety System features. This safety suite includes a Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Automatic High Beams, Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Vehicle Stability Control, Traction Control, and Anti-Lock Brake System. There are also 10 standard airbags and a rear backup camera. Toyota does not skimp on safety with this car.
The 2020 has a few essential added features that a college kid will want. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard for smartphone compatibility. An 8-inch full color Toyota Audio display is centrally located atop the dashboard for easy access. Fuel economy can be monitored while driving. And, the engine can be switched between Sport and ECO modes for optimal efficiency.
The interior cabin is sleek and uncluttered. Surfaces are neatly covered with soft-touch materials. Placed throughout the car are small storage cubbies, such as molded door pockets, seatback pockets, concealed cargo area compartments, and front and back cup or bottle holders.
