  • To be offered with a choice of eight exterior colours (including radiant green as shown)
  • Safety features will include a pre-collision system with autonomous braking, adaptive cruise control, lane departure alert with steering control, automatic high beam and a reverse camera

Tony Cramb is the head of sales and marketing at Toyota Australia, he says Toyota dealers are looking forward to having the model available to Australian buyers.

“It has four doors and a hatch, but it’s not a hatchback; it’s compact while having a large interior and room for five; it has a high driving position, yet it’s not a boxy off-roader.

“Not only does the C-HR always look like it’s on the move, the new platform and turbocharged petrol engine ensure it delivers an agile driving feel.”
