What We Know About The Toyota C-HR

Toyota’s iteration of a sporty updated do it all SUV will be hitting Singapore’s Shores in late 2016 early 2017. Not much is known about the vehicle but we managed to get first dips in receiving the showroom model in the 3rd quarter of 2016. From what we know, there will only be about 7 showroom models but we are going to fly that exclusive piece while sources tell us that other competitors will be shipping it in which means you get to see the model in advance.

Power and Fuel consumption

The Toyota C-HR will come with 3 different models to suit the varying needs of our customers. The 1.2L Turbo with 133bhp which will be suitable for Cat A cars. A 1.4L Diesel engine model and lastly a 2.0L hybrid model. All three has sufficient power and excellent fuel consumption for the busy roads of Singapore.

Coupe or 4 doors?

The Toyota C-HR might look like a 2 door coupe, but it is a cleverly disguised 5 door vehicle in actual fact. The two rear door handles are cleverly disguised and flushed with the exterior design to give it a flushed and sleek look which will definitely appeal to the younger generation.


Because of its SUV nature, the C-HR is likely to be very spacious which will fit 5 persons comfortably. The rear seats will also be able to be folded down for more boot space which will fit bicycles easily.

The instrument console is driver centered and will include an 8 inch media display which connectivity includes Bluetooth, AUX and CD players. The steering wheel will also have several controls inbuilt for easy access. The car also features a keyless start stop button which is usually unheard of in this price point

Where is it made in?

This might be an important answer to you if you are looking for reliability and exclusivity. Sources has told us that it is made in turkey but this might be subjected to change especially if this model is going to be catered for the south east Asia market.

The car will be available in Singapore end 2016 to early 2017 and we will definitely be getting our hands on a few pieces for a few lucky individuals. if you would like to know exactly when and where you can purchase the car, be sure to sign up with our mailing list so we can contact you!

What Are Singaporeans’ criteria when choosing a car?

With the prices of cars getting more and more expensive, it is important to carefully evaluate what your criteria are before plunging 100,000+ into a car that can only last you 10 years. Remember that cars in Singapore is always a depreciation and it is all the more important to tick all the boxes you have in mind. Most Singaporeans when choosing a car will definitely think about these aspects and hopefully this will help you to identify which is important to you.

Fuel economy

Fuel economy is extremely important in Singapore because of the high petrol cost. One litre of petrol will easily cost you $1.80 after rebates and discounts which means one full tank will cost you about $80 taking account. If you have to top up your tank every week this means your monthly expenditure on petrol alone will be about $320 per month. People who has fuel efficient cars though won’t ever experience the same thing. I’m talking about cars that can do 16km/l -18km/l such as Honda Vezel and even the upcoming Toyota C-HR. I have had many experiences of people commenting that they only need to top up their vehicles about 2-3 times a month which means saving $80 a month.

Cabin Space

Cabin space is definitely a key factor when purchasing a car. You want a car that you can do long distance in comfortably and also hold your luggage or groceries from a shopping trip. Again most compact cars will barely suffice but the preferred car type will definitely be SUVs MPVs such as the Toyota C-HR or Toyota Wish. Most MPVs and SUVs now have the option to fold the rear seats as well for more space for luggage or even delivering goods!


With more and more vehicles becoming sub 2 litres or even 1.4litres. It is really surprising how much power that can come with such low capacity vehicles up to even 100bhp and above. Decide for yourself if you really need a 2 litre car for city living or a 1.2 litre engine. Remember that lower capacity vehicles also tend to sip petrol conservatively compared to it’s bigger brother.


Remember that your car is going to stick with you for a couple of years. This means the parts of car is likely to be subjected to wear and tear and will need replacement. It is always wise to purchase brands that have a large following in Singapore because replacement parts will always be cheaper and faster to service. Such car brands include Toyota, Honda, Nissan, Mazda to name a few. European brands also tend to have more expensive parts and servicing so do factor this into your cost.


Price is definitely the largest factor when choosing a car. We don’t only have to pay a large sum for the car itself but also road tax, insurance and COE. Japanese cars in this case tend to offer a more affordable pricing for a decent performing car while European cars tend to be more pricey.

The Toyata C-HR is set to come out in early 2017 and will definitely be a hot seller just based on it’s looks and potential price. To be the first few proud owners of this beautiful car, be sure to sign up here and receive first hand notification when it hits our Singaporean shores.

Why Toyota C-HR is the perfect car for all ages

In Singapore, most car owners are looking for 5 things in a do it all car. Sufficient power but still able to hit the Cat A for COE, Sufficient space for a family for 5 and groceries, modern and sleek looks, fuel efficient vehicle and lastly the price. Surprisingly Toyota C-HR has hit all those ticks way beyond what it should for its price.

Toyota C-HR also stands for Coupe-High rider but don’t let that name fool you, it is still a 5 door car and draws its design from the ever so popular Honda Vezel for the rear two doors. This means you wont have to fork out extra cash for a 2 door but still retains that same sleek look. However, don’t mistake the Toyota C-HR for the Honda Vezel, its a totally different machine with better improved engine and interior.

We really love the Toyota C-HR because it really speaks to new couples or couples looking to start a family. Because it is also a SUV, it is extremely comfortable for long getaways to our friendly neighbour malaysia. Its boot space and rear folding seats also ensure that it will be able to fit all the luggage you ever need. There are also plans to have an optional Thule rack available if you are an avid biker.

Just going by looks and we are already certain that this upcoming model is going to be a hot seller. So hot that we are bringing in a record number C-HR compared to other models such as Honda Vezel.

Pricing For Toyota C-HR forecasted for SG

toyota C-HR Singapore

Toyota C-HR was slated to be the most anticipated SUV/ Crossover for late 2016/2017. It checked the boxes for many people, great fuel efficiency, excellent styling, gorgeous interior and overall a promise to be priced well. The C-HR will hit Singapore’s shores this coming Dec 16 / early 2017 and there will definitely be  mad rush to get the limited quantity. But what do we know about the pricing?

The Toyota C-HR is already in the UK and prices gives us a rough sensing on how much the car will be priced in Singapore. Toyota faces tough rivals from the likes of Honda’s Vezel as well as Nissan’s Qashdai and the prices are within in the region of 10,000. However, with the release of new models. We expect the Toyota to be on par if not much better performing with the above said models.

Toyota C-HR is priced from 20,995 pounds for the base model while in comparison the HRV is going for 17,995 pounds. Contrasting to Singapore where the last 2nd COE bidding for august ended at $52,503. We expect the C-HR to cost lower than the Honda HRV at about $107,000 in order to compete with the price of Honda Vezel at $104,000 for the base 1.5litre model.

The newly launched car might be more costlier but we reckon it is due to the more advanced technology coming from the turbo engine, power transmission and Toyota Safety Sense. which will likely result in better fuel consumption.

Overall the C-HR will definitely cost a stir in Singapore with the already over population of Honda Vezel and Qashdai. If you would like to subscribe and find out the moment it reaches Singapore, do signup at our subscriber list at our homepage.
