The recently introduced entry-level crossover is about to come with novelties already as 2022 Toyota C-HR. It looks like the Japanese manufacturer is about to electrify its lineup. One of the first models to receive electric sources of power will be this one. According to the latest reports, we will see both plug-in hybrid and all-electric version in the near future. Other than that, this small crossover should continue in the same way, which seems natural, considering its recent arrival. Most likely, the new 2022 Toyota C-HR will come a little bit earlier than usual.

Pros

  • Good handling
  • Lots of standard equipment
  • Efficient engines

Cons

  • Tight rear seats
  • Hard-plastics interior

Exterior

In this aspect, we definitely won’t see bigger changes in the next few years. The new entry-level crossover came last year and it completely follows the brand’s newest design language. Just like other Toyota models, it also comes with lots of sharp lines and angles. The biggest novelty for the next year could be a few more color options. Other than that, things will remain the same. In terms of mechanics, this crossover rides on the company’s new TNGA platform. This architecture is the core of pretty much all models that recently came from the line and all of them have one thing in common – great dynamics and overall driving characteristics.

Interior

Another aspect where we probably won’t see bigger changes. The 2022 Toyota C-HR will continue with a familiar interior design. The cabin of this small crossover seems quite spacious, considering its size. It can accommodate up to five people, though four seems like a perfect measure. When it comes to interior quality, you definitely can find some surfaces that feature hard plastics but that is a common thing for the class. After all, these are pretty affordable crossovers and the overall impression, in this case, is pretty good. A list of standard equipment is also pretty amazing. Event in base models you can count on things like automatic headlights, 8-inch touchscreen, 6-speaker audio system etc. In higher trims, count on heated seats, automatic climate control, leather upholstery, fog lights, navigation and much more.

Engines

Big novelties are expected under the hood of 2022 Toyota C-HR. The base model will continue with the same 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit that delivers around 144 horsepower. On the other side, we expect to see a new plug-in hybrid version in the offer. So far, exact details are still unknown but various reports suggest an all-electric range around 30 miles. An electric version also seems very likely in the near future.

2020 Toyota C-HR Release Date and Price

Considering expected electrification, the 2022 Toyota C-HR will probably come a little bit earlier than usual. Still, it will definitely stick to the second half of the year. Most likely, we will see it in the third quarter of 2019. When it comes to the price, base models will go around $21,000.
