The Toyota C-HR (Japanese: トヨタ C-HR Hepburn: Toyota Shīeichiāru) is a subcompact crossover SUV produced by Toyota. The development of the car began in 2013 that was led by Toyota chief engineer Hiroyuki Koba. The production version of the C-HR was unveiled at the March 2016 Geneva Motor Show and started production in November 2016. It was launched in Japan on 14 December 2016. It went on sale in Europe, Australia, South Africa and North America in early 2017, and in Southeast Asia, China and Taiwan in 2018. The name C-HR stands for Compact High Rider, Cross Hatch Run–about or Coupé High–Rider.
Initial production was in Japan and Turkey. The North American-spec C-HR is imported from Turkey.
In Japan, the C-HR is sold at all Toyota dealership sales channels (Toyota Store, Toyopet Store, Corolla Store and Netz). The Japanese market C-HR is powered by either 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine, or 1.8-litre Hybrid. The 2WD models are available with both engines, while the only motor for the AWD models is 1.2-litre turbo. Model grades are S, S-LED, G, S-T and G-T. Models S, S-LED, G are powered with a 1.2-litre turbo engine, while other models by a 1.8-litre Hybrid. LED Package is exclusive for the G and S-LED packages.
The Thai-built C-HR with 1.8-litre 2ZR-FBE engine is sold in certain Asian countries like Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia and Brunei. The ASEAN production version was unveiled in Thailand on November 30, 2017 at the 34th Thailand International Motor Expo. For the Indonesian market, the C-HR was launched on April 10, 2018. The Hybrid version was also displayed in Indonesia at the 2017 and 2018 Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Shows, and went on sale on April 22, 2019.
In Brunei, the C-HR is offered in the mid and high grade models with petrol engine, and a Hybrid model.
For Singapore and Taiwan, the C-HR is only offered with 1.2-litre 8NR-FTS petrol engine. Singapore only gets the 2WD model in Active and Luxury grades. Buyers in Taiwan can choose the 2WD and 4WD models.
For the Chinese market, the C-HR is sold by GAC Toyota, while the model sold by FAW Toyota is called the IZOA. The IZOA features a front bumper grille with horizontal lines instead of mesh on the C-HR. Both the C-HR and IZOA were revealed at the Auto Guangzhou in November 2017 and went on sale in April 2018. The electric vehicle (EV) variant of both the C-HR and IZOA were unveiled at the 18th Auto Shanghai on April 16, 2019 as the first battery electric vehicle in Toyota's upcoming lineup, to be available in the Chinese market in 2020.
Similar to Japan, the C-HR for Europe can be purchased with either 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol, or 1.8-litre Hybrid. 6-speed manual transmission is only installed in the front-wheel-drive 1.2 turbo. The sole gearbox for the 1.2 turbo AWD and Hybrid is CVT.
Trim levels vary across countries. In the UK, they are Icon, Design, Excel and Dynamic. For the French market, there are even more marketing name variations such as Active, Dynamic, Edition, Graphic, Distinctive and Collection. They are basically similar cars with different standard or optional equipment.

Unique for the North American C-HR is the bigger 2.0-litre 3ZR-FAE naturally aspirated petrol engine dubbed which is matched to a CVT gearbox.
