The Toyota C-HR has finally arrived in Malaysia, officially previewed by UMW Toyota. Before you get too excited though, this is purely a preview, with no solid indication of a local launch anytime soon.

The C-HR has not been launched in any ASEAN market just yet, though it has been spotted testing in Thailand. We also sighted the compact crossover at the Singapore Motor Show back in January this year.

Anyhow, an 8NR-FTS 1.2 litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine powers the car seen here, which has 115 PS and 185 Nm on tap. The mill is paired with a CVT that sends drive to the front wheels (all-wheel drive is optional in other markets).

Other powertrain options include a 2.0 litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol mill (150 PS/193 Nm) as well as a 1.8 litre hybrid. The latter is front-wheel drive only, comprising a VVT-i Atkinson cycle four-cylinder engine, a pair of electric motors and a CVT gearbox.

Equipment wise, the preview car is fitted with 17-inch five-spoke alloy wheels, LED fog lamps, bulb-type taillights and LED headlights. We’ve also been told that the car comes with the Toyota Safety Sense suite. Once again, this is merely a preview, so the specifications you see on this car may or may not be offered when the C-HR is officially launched here.
