The popular Toyota C-HR crossover has been given a mid-life update, with Toyota dropping the 1.2-litre petrol model to concentrate only on petrol-electric hybrid options.

The hybrid powertrain is now available with a 2.0-litre petrol engine, as debuted on the new Corolla, which joins an updated version of the existing 1.8-litre unit.

The C-HR has been on sale since 2016 and is one of the company’s most popuar models. It’s also well regarded by critics, currently holding an Expert Rating of 76% on The Car Expert’s unique Expert Rating system, which aggregates media reviews from 18 of the top UK motoring websites.

The 120hp 1.8-litre model has been upgraded with a new lithium-ion battery while receiving size, weight and efficiency improvements across the entire powertrain, resulting in lower CO2 emissions of 109g/km and fuel economy of 54.3–58.9mpg.

The 2.0-litre version, which makes 182hp, emits 109g/km of CO2 and returns 49.6–54.3mpg. Models with this engine also get an uprated suspension and improved refinement.

Inside, the C-HR gets Toyota’s latest infotainment system included as standard, which incorporates Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as satellite navigation with over-the-air updates.

Entry-level Icon models, starting from £25,625, are only available with the 1.8-litre hybrid system, with the 2.0-litre unit available from the Design trim and up and costing from £29,645. Standard equipment on the Icon trim includes 17-inch alloy wheels, a reversing camera, dual zone air conditioning and LED headlights.

Extras added in higher trim levels include 18-inch alloy wheels, LED lights all-round, leather upholstery, and safety sensors.

The updated Toyota C-HR is on sale now with prices starting at £25,625 on-road. Deliveries are expected to begin in January 2020.
