For those who have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Toyota C-HR, good news. UMW Toyota has announced the compact SUV will be displayed at selected showrooms from next month onwards as part of a public preview.

The C-HR first made its local appearance back in May this year, and recently, the company launched a registration of interest (ROI) page that included some information about the model’s specifications.

Under the hood of the C-HR is a 1.8 litre Dual VVT-i petrol engine, which is mated to a CVT automatic (with sequential shifter). Other features include follow-me-home headlights, puddle lights as well as a “full range of safety features,” the last of which includes rear cross traffic alert.

There’s also a shot of the car’s “luxurious interior,” which appears to host a UMW Toyota head unit similar to that on the latest Innova, as well as fabric upholstery for the seats.

The C-HR will make an appearance at Toyota Section 19 from August 4-8, before heading to Batu Kawan Stadium, Penang, in conjunction with the Toyota Gazoo Racing (TGR) Racing Festival from August 12-13. Shortly after, it will be on display 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.
