Toyota Motor Corporation today announced that it has recorded strong first-half results for the C-HR compact SUV.
With sales topping 79,303 units, the C-HR earned the top spot in the new SUV segment in Japan during the first half of 2017.
In addition, the C-HR’s sales peaked at 13,168 units in April 2017, making it the most purchased vehicle in Japanese market within that month.
Toyota says that among the factors that contribute to the model’s success include its sleek design, Toyota’s TNGA platform which enhances driving performance through a low centre of gravity, and also the impressive fuel economy of 30.2 km/L.
The C-HR was also previewed here in Malaysia at the Carlist.my MAA DRIVE event in May where it received overwhelming response from the public.
Expected to arrive in Malaysia in 2018, the C-HR which we will get will most probably be powered by a naturally-aspirated 1.8-litre engine mated to a CVT-type automatic that sends drive to the front wheels.
