Toyota Australia has announced the availability of the C-HR GR Sport, the first GR Sport grade to be offered locally.
While pricing is still to be confirmed, the C-HR GR Sport is due to arrive in dealerships later this month, it’s based on the entry-level GXL’s specification, but borrows the Koba’s hybrid powertrain.
There’s no additional power with the 1.8-litre four-cylinder hybrid set-up continuing to produce 90kW of power. It’s matched to an e-CVT transmission and front-wheel drive.
GR Sport variants are differentiated by a redesigned front end with a unique bumper, grille and headlights. Toyota says this delivers an aggressive look.
The C-HR GR Sport also gets larger 19-inch alloy wheels wrapped in low profile tyres, while the suspension features a sportier tune.
Inside the enhancements extend to bespoke trim highlights and sports seats.
Equipment highlights carried over from the GXL includes keyless entry and push-button start, an 8.0-inch touchscreen with satellite navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, automatic LED headlights, heated and folding exterior mirrors, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, an electrochromatic rear-view mirror, rain-sensing wipers, dual-zone climate control, and a 4.2-inch driver information display in the instrument cluster.
The safety kit features autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian and daytime cyclist detection, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, front and rear parking sensors, automatic high-beam, a rear-view camera, rear cross-traffic alert, lane-tracing assist, lane-departure warning and traffic sign recognition.
A range of eight colour options will be available including three two-tone colourways which match Crystal Pearl, Hornet Yellow or Feverish Red with a black roof.
Toyota will confirm pricing before the C-HR GR Sport’s arrival later this month.
