After making its appearance at the Toyota showroom in Section 19, Petaling Jaya, the Toyota C-HR is now on display at the ongoing Toyota Gazoo Racing (TGR) Racing Festival at Batu Kawan Stadium, Penang.

The car on display does not fully represent the local-spec version we will get (it is from Australia), but we have been told it would be a good indicator. Under the bonnet of this particular C-HR, there’s an 8NR-FTS 1.2 litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine that makes 115 PS and 185 Nm.

However, the Malaysian-spec C-HR will come with a 1.8 litre Dual VVT-i engine instead, as was shown on the model’s official registration of interest (ROI) page. The engine will be mated to a CVT automatic, with drive going to the front wheels.

Other details revealed by UMW Toyota include some of the equipment the local-spec C-HR will get. This includes follow-me-home headlights, puddle lights, UMW Toyota head unit and rear cross traffic alert (also found on the Australian-spec car together with a blind spot monitor).

Getting back to the show car, there’s 4.2-inch multi-info display within the instrument cluster, halogen projector headlights with LED DRLs, dual-zone automatic air-con, 17-inch alloy wheels and fabric seats. As a reminder, these specifications may or may not make it to C-HR that Malaysians will get, something to take note.

Also uncertain is availability of the Toyota Safety Sense suite that includes systems such as Pre-Collision Safety, Active Cruise Control, Lane Departure Alert, Autonomous Emergency Braking, Forward Collision Warning and Automatic High Beam.

So, if you want to get up close with one of the most anticipated models currently, head on over to the TGR Racing Festival at Batu Kawan Stadium, Penang. If the C-HR has enough to pique your interest, head on over to the ROI page, here.

Following its stop in Penang, the C-HR will then be displayed at the Toyota Subang Jaya showroom (August 16-22), Mid Valley Megamall (August 23-27), Sunway Pyramid (September 4-10) and other locations around Peninsular Malaysia.
