Toyota goes further with Toyota Safety Sense
As one of Toyota's missions is to make the roads safer, Toyota equipped the 2018 C-HR with its Toyota Safety Sense technology, which includes:
- Automatic pre-collision braking system
- Lane departure alert
- Dynamic cruise control
- Assisted steering
- Blind spot monitor
On the performance side, the Toyota C-HR is powered by a 2-litre four-cylinder engine producing 144 horsepower and 140 pound-foot of torque.
