    Toyota Lightly Freshens the C-HR

      ...so slight, I had to look at the current car to see the difference...

    Toyota has released an update to its funky little crossover/hatchback, the C-HR.  The changes are slight and include a (slightly) revised front fascia, new wheels, two new colors, Android Auto and Apple Car play standard, and on the Limited trim, an adaptive front lighting system and 8-way power seats. 

    2020_Toyota_CHR_04.jpgThe C-HR already comes with Toyota Safety Sense - P, a suite of safety technologies that include  a multi-feature advanced active safety suite that bundles Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Automatic High Beams, and Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control.

    The C-HR is powered by a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder producing 144 horsepower at 6,100 rpm and 139 pound-feet of torque at 3,900 rpm. A CVT puts the power to the wheels, though in sport mode it simulates a 7-speed automatic. The C-HR has a EPA-estimated MPG of 27 city / 31 highway / 29 combined.

    I always get this one confused with the Honda CUVs especially since the name is C-HR. 🙄

    It's hard to type and not type HR-V or CH-R.

    These sell well and are everywhere. Essentially a hatch version of what would be a Corolla. Even goes to show, as a "ute", despite no AWD option, real buyers don't care. FWD, hatch to open and carry slightly more stuff with, interesting looks...drivetrain..."I don't care. It's a Toyota. Thanks."

    Good mix. Again, see them everywhere. That's good for Toyota.

    I don't see a lot of them around my parts.  I see this as Toyota's answer to a Kia Soul... a small CUV with no AWD and a lack of cargo room. 

    But the Kia Soul has some interesting powertrains.

    I've only noticed a couple of the toyoters around me, and they are quite bloated, so I don't think many are escaping my eye.
    I'm surprised with the glut in this segment anyone is willing choosing this small disaster, but; people. Go figure.

    Kia Soul I love and would rather have any day of the week, but these little unique Toyotas, yeah, no struggle to sell. Eastern half of PA and all over NY & NJ...

    The only thing on which I'll opine is the more noticeable (and probably functional) front bumper.  I like that. 

    Hyundai products sure have gone in the other direction.  I'm talking about their cavernous plastic grilles being more prone to damage in small mishaps.

    I'm hoping other auto makers will follow suit and put a real bumper of sorts at the front (and rear) of their cars.

    Probably not going to happen for Aero and weight reasons.

      The current generation Toyota Mirai has never been a "looker". It seemed like some sort of Prius with a glandular problem.  Toyota hopes to change that and make the fuel cell vehicle sexy with the new 2021 Toyota Mirai Sedan Concept.
      The new concept sits on a rear-wheel drive platform and sports an new, more powerful fuel cell powertrain.  Toyota claims a 30-percent increase in driving range with increased hydrogen capacity. 
      Most importantly thought, Toyota un-weirded the Mirai so that it now looks like something that might sit in a Lexus showroom rather than Toyota. 
      The next generation Toyota Mirai will go on sale in late 2020.

      Toyota has announced that they will be bringing a new Toyota RAV4 Hybrid to the Los Angeles Auto Show this year.  The difference for this hybrid is that it will be a plug-in and it will also be more powerful. Toyota promises "spirited acceleration" in their press release.  As we get closer to the show, we'll get more details on range, power, battery size, etc. 
      The RAV4 is already the best selling crossover in the segment and that could mean that the RAV4 PHEV could end up being the most popular PHEV for sale. Globally that title currently belongs to the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV. 
      Toyota has twice previously made full EV versions of the RAV4, but limited their sales primarily to California where they enjoyed limited success as "compliance vehicles" with 1,484 sold of the first generation and 2,600 copies of the 3rd generation.  There was no second generation RAV4 EV.

    • i definitely did not know their pumps/stations were open to the public. That really is a pretty big difference.  I know there is a lot of R&D left before hydrogen can become financially feasible, but I've said it for about 10 years now, I believe hydrogen is the real future. I know it isn't some short 10-15 years away or anything but the unlimited fuel source is the difference maker. Until solar panels, wind, and water generators can 100% fuel the planet(which I don't think will be ever) I don't see electric-only being the forever fuel source. 
    • What R&D do they do that seems better than anybody else?  Also, it seems odd to not want a product because the CEO has an attitude. I get it but I don't at the same time.  I do really like what they're doing with Amazon and Ford to get a guaranteed cash flow. 
    • I think what will help the lone contract trucker as well as small companies is that companies like UPS, FedEx and Waste Management have all built their pumping stations to be also open to the public. This helps spread the use and cover the cost. I know the west coast is far more ahead of the Fuel cell and EV trend than most other areas of the country, but as Warren Buffet has stated about his own purchase of multiple train companies, the sooner they convert from Diesel generation to LNG generation the cleaner and quieter the planet becomes for the health of humanity. In it for everyone to have a healthier life.
    • I can understand what you say, I have researched RJ the CEO and the backing of the company and R&D they have done. Very solid, very efficient company so far and clearly not dragging along the attitude of Musk. I honestly think with building the F150 EV truck for Ford, building their own auto's and the Amazon Prime EV delivery van fleet that we will see a much better run and production company as they move from their current Beta testing and assembly line building to a full production site at the end of the year. Knowledge is power and my research on Rivian is showing a better planned and executed company.  The only thing holding me back from putting down a deposit is my test fit into the auto. I hope to do that in the near future.
    • Yeah, that's such a small portion of the country. The biggest difference will be for the privately owned trucks and smaller companies. I think that is the biggest reason it will not be 25 years because they aren't going to be putting in their own infrastructure and they will need cross country stations.  I did notice, for the first time, a UPS truck had a sticker near their tank that said it used "liquid compressed natural gas". I was on the interstate so I didn't notice if it was quieter or louder than diesel but it did catch my eye.
