The all-new 2018 Toyota C-HR has officially made its way to dealership lots across the country, including ours here at Magnussen’s Toyota of Palo Alto. Our team is going to compare the two available trims – XLE and XLE Premium -to give drivers a better idea of what each one offers.
Both 2018 C-HR models are set standard with an efficient 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that pumps out 144 horsepower and gets 139 lb.-ft. of torque. Front-wheel drive is also standard, and each one is paired with a Continuously Variable Transmission with intelligence and Shift Mode for a smooth and easy driving experience. The C-HR offers drivers three modes to best suit the current driving conditions: Sport, Normal and ECO. For safety, the C-HR comes standard with a backup camera integrated into the rearview mirror.
What’s the difference between the 2018 Toyota C-HR trims?
|2018 Toyota C-HR XLE||vs.||2018 Toyota C-HR XLE Premium|
|Not available||Integrated Fog Lights||Standard|
|Remote keyless entry system||Key Type||Smart Key System w/ Push Button Start|
|Not available||Blind Spot Monitor & Rear Cross-Traffic Alert||Standard|
As we can see from the chart above, the 2018 Toyota C-HR XLE Premium trim is marked with a slightly higher starting price point than the base XLE trim. This is because it has additional standard features mentioned above as well as heated front bucket seats and a outside hatchback door handle with a touch-sensor lock/unlock feature.
Both trims are exactly the same size with seating for up to five including the driver. The driver and front seat passenger will have 43.46 inches of legroom, whereas rear seat passengers will have 31.7 inches to stretch out their legs. Overall, there is 83.8 cubic feet of passenger volume. Drivers will find 19 cubic feet of space behind the rear seat and more than 36 cubic feet when the rear seat is folded down.
