Toyota updates C-HR for 2019by Drew Johnson
Improvements include standard CarPlay.
Toyota has announced a host of changes for its 2019 C-HR compact crossover. Upgrades for the new model year include a new grade strategy and updated infotainment.
For 2019 Toyota is cutting the C-HR's XLE Premium trim, leaving LE, XLE and Limited. In order to compensate for that new lineup strategy, Toyota has added a blind spot monitor with cross traffic alert, auto folding mirrors and smart key with push button start to the XLE's standard features list. The Limited trim has been upgraded with fog lamps, rain-sensing windshield wipers, Entune 3.0 Audio Plus, heated front seats, power lumbar for the driver and an option of either leather seats or leather seats with fabric inserts.
All 2019 C-HR models benefit from the addition of Apple CarPlay as standard.
On the styling front, Toyota is extending its two-tone black roof option to C-HRs painted Silver Knockout Metallic, Blizzard Pearl, Ruby Flare Pearl, and Blue Flame. Inside XLE models are now available with a new gray fabric, and Limited buyers have the option of black or brown leather with fabric inserts.
The 2019 Toyota C-HR is on sale now. The entry-level LE lists from $20,995, while the mid-level XLE carries a base MSRP of $23,030. Buyers wanting the top spec Limited will need at least $26,050 in their pocket. All prices exclude a mandatory destination charge of $1,095.
