We’re rounding up our coverage of the 2018 Singapore Motor Show with the introduction of the Toyota C-HR in the republic. While parallel importers sell the 1.8 litre hybrid version there, the 1.2 litre turbo units are distributed by Borneo Motors, and come in two variants – Active and Luxury.

Both were on display at the show (with bodykits) during the model’s launch, and are powered by an 8NR-FTS 1.2 litre turbo four-cylinder petrol engine that makes 114 hp from 5,200 to 5,600 rpm and 185 Nm of torque from 1,500 to 4,000 rpm.

The mill is paired with a CVT automatic with seven virtual speeds, and the car will hit a top speed of 185 km/h. It also has a claimed fuel consumption of 15.6 km per litre (combined) and C02 emission of 144 grams per km.

In terms of equipment, all variants get 17-inch alloy wheels shod with 215/60 profile tyres and a comprehensive safety kit. This includes seven airbags (including driver’s knee), VSC, hill start assist, ABS, brake assist, front and rear parking sensors, blind spot monitor and rear cross traffic alert.

There’s even a Toyota Safety Sense P package with the following systems: Pre-collision System, Adaptive High-beam System, Lane Departure Alert and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control.

Focusing on the Active variant, it is equipped with automatic halogen projector headlights with DRLs, front fog lamps, black fabric seats, 4.2-inch colour multi-info display, electrochromic rear view mirrors, dual-zone climate control with NanoE air purification system and Toyota Telematics System infotainment unit.

The Luxury gets fancier items, swapping out the halogens for auto-levelling LED units, along with sequential turn signals and smart entry system. Inside, there are leather seats, a navigation function for the infotainment system, front lumbar support and a smart start system.

In terms of pricing, the C-HR 1.2 Turbo Active retails for SG$119,988 (RM359,432), and there are eight colours to choose from – Radiant Green Metallic, Red Mica, Yellow, Blue Metallic, Metal Stream Metallic, White Pearl Crystal Shine, Black Mica and Dark Brown Mica Metallic.

Meanwhile, the C-HR 1.2 Turbo Luxury has two prices – SG$129,988 (RM389,346) and SG$130,988 (RM392,310) – the latter for customers who want a dual-tone paint scheme instead of a monotone one. There are nine colour combinations available for those who prefer a dual-tone look for their C-HR. All prices are inclusive of COE and a three-year/100,000 km warranty.

As a comparison, the C-HR destined for Malaysians will be powered by a 2ZR-FE 1.8 litre naturally-aspirated engine with 135 hp (137 PS) at 6,400 rpm and 170 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm, sent to the front wheels via a CVT.

The kit list here is comprised of automatic projector halogen headlights with LED daytime running lights, LED tail lights, front and rear fog lights, 17-inch alloys, keyless entry, push-button start, dual-zone climate control, leather upholstery and powered driver’s side lumbar adjustment (seat adjustment is still manual).

There’s also an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, a 4.2-inch multi-info display and a DVD player with a seven-inch capacitive touchscreen, Bluetooth, USB and HDMI connectivity, a reverse camera and six speakers.

Safety-wise, there are seven airbags (including one for the driver’s knee), ABS with EBD and brake assist, Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRC) and Isofix rear child seat anchors, plus Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA).
