The 2017 Toyota C-HR has been spied testing in Australia ahead of its local release in early 2017.
Spotted testing in Melbourne, the heavily disguised Toyota C-HR appears to be undergoing final validation and tuning in Australia before it’s signed off locally.
As revealed in September, Australian C-HR models will be powered by a new 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine, producing 85kW of power and 185Nm of torque.
The new small SUV will be available with both a six-speed manual and continuously-variable automatic transmissions, in front- or all-wheel drive configuration.
Two variants will launch locally – the Active and the Koba – with the latter named after the car’s global chief engineer, Hiroyuki Koba.
Local models will feature a 6.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system, two-tiered front seat design, pre-collision warning system with autonomous emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning with steering assist, auto high beam, along with a rear-view camera.
Stepping up to the Koba adds heated seats, keyless entry and start, privacy glass and 18-inch alloy wheels.
