2021 Toyota C-HR Gets Nightshade Edition

Very little changes for the urban crossover.


  • The 2021 Toyota C-HR starts at $21,445 in the U.S. and $23,750 in Canada, before freight and delivery charges.

  • A new Nightshade Edition is the only significant change for the 2021 model year.

  • The C-HR is equipped with a 2.0L four-cylinder engine good for 144 horsepower.


The 2021 Toyota C-HR subcompact crossover is now on sale in the United States and Canada, and the only major change is the new Nightshade Edition.

The funky C-HR is equipped with a 2.0L four-cylinder engine that develops 144 horsepower and 139 pound-feet of torque, which feeds the front wheels through a continuously variable automatic transmission. The crossover’s fuel economy is rated at 27/31/29 mpg in the U.S. and 8.7/7.5/8.2 L/100 km in Canada.

The 2021 Toyota C-HR LE comes standard with LED headlights, 17-inch steel wheels with covers, dual-zone climate control, keyless entry, cloth upholstery, a leather-wrapped shift knob and a six-speaker stereo with an eight-inch infotainment touchscreen as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration.

A slew of advanced safety driving aids are included in the C-HR as well, with the distinction that the U.S. market gets the Toyota Safety Sense 2.5 suite, while Canada makes do with TSS 2.0. Basically, both feature autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane departure alert with steering assist and lane tracing assist, automatic high beams and full-speed adaptive cruise control, but TSS 2.5 adds emergency steering assist to avoid pedestrians as well as sway warning system that detects and alerts the driver when it’s time to take break from driving.

The C-HR XLE adds 18-inch alloy wheels, a smart key with pushbutton start, a leather-wrapped wheel, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross traffic alert. In Canada, the trim is called XLE Premium and also bundles heated front seats and a heated steering wheel.

Next up is the new 2021 Toyota C-HR Nightshade Edition, which includes the XLE/XLE Premium’s features, wrapped in a monochrome exterior appearance package with black detailing, a black-painted roof, unique 18-inch alloys and a front chin spoiler. Four paint colours are available for the Nightshade Edition: Black Sand, Blizzard Pearl, Magnetic Gray Metallic and Supersonic Red.

Finally, the range-topping C-HR Limited benefits from leather upholstery, LED fog lamps, ambient lighting and a power-adjustable driver’s seat. The U.S. C-HR Limited also gets heated front seats.

The 2021 Toyota C-HR competes with other front-drive urban crossovers such as the Kia Soul, the Nissan Kicks and the Hyundai Venue, as well as other models that can be equipped with all-wheel drive like the Hyundai Kona, the Honda HR-V, the Kia Seltos, the Mazda CX-3 and the Nissan Rogue Sport/Qashqai, among others.
