The Toyota C-HR might be a relatively new entrant in the subcompact crossover segment, but it has already gained significant popularity and has carved a space for itself in the market. Even with its affordable and attractive price tag, the C-HR manages to surprise consumers with a host of useful features. But in a fiercely competitive segment, competition is inevitable, and the C-HR goes against some other popular picks such as the Hyundai Kona. In this article, we are going to see what makes the Toyota C-HR stand out from the Hyundai Kona.
For the 2021 model year, Toyota has added a host of standard safety features across all the trims. Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 active safety system constitutes features like Automated Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Traffic-sign Recognition system, lane-keeping assist with road-edge detection, adaptive cruise control with the lane-trace assist, and automatic high-beam headlamps. Also, a Nightshade Edition appearance package will be available for the mid-range XLE model. Contact us today to check out the 2021 C-HR in person.

Both the vehicles pretty much go head-to-head when it comes to performance. Both the vehicles are powered by a 2.0-liter inline-four-cylinder engine and put out similar power figures, both of them have similar fuel economy figures, and both of them are front-wheel-drive. However, the C-HR is a lot more friendly for new drivers thanks to its easy-to-use continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) compared to the six-speed automatic-equipped in the Kona.
Talking about features, the C-HR has a lot more to offer compared to the Kona. The Toyota C-HR is equipped with an eight-inch touchscreen display that comes with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Amazon Alexa, Bluetooth Connectivity, Hands-free phone capability, Advanced Voice Recognition, SiriusXM, and Wi-Fi Connect. Coming to its interior features, the C-HR has dual-zone automatic climate control, a center armrest with a 12-volt power outlet, and a 4.2-inch TFT Multi-information Display (MID), to name some of them.
All these arrays of features coupled with Toyota’s renowned reliability aspect are what make the Toyota C-HR stand apart from its competition. Contact us today to schedule a test drive.
