Just Ordered in Kuala Lumpur

Post by Mtaz » Sun May 05, 2019 11:51 am

Hello everyone.

I just ordered my Radient Green, CH-R today. Upgrading from a Prius after almost 6-years of ownership.

The model range in Malaysia is rather limited (just one), which comes with 17 inch alloys, leather seats, comfort access, blind spot monitors, CVT gearbox, 1.8 engine (non-hybrid), Android and Apple CarPlay, LED tail lights and a few other bits and bobs.

I opted for the radiant green, with a black roof, which was a RM800 (around £150) option. The only other options were for an integrated dash cam, body kit and a boot tray.

The Malaysian CH-R is assembled in Thailand, and so because it is a ‘fully assembled before import’ vehicle, car tax is a little higher compared to locally assembled models like the Honda HRV.

It’s going to be a long one month wait.

Android and Apple CarPlay
Are you sure about that? US new models will have only CarPlay by the end of the year I believe. I think even Japanese models don't have these yet. Or do they?

Doesn't look like Toyota Touch 2. It's not Entune, right?

I don't know it this is new info, but here my findings:

"Inside, the C-HR gains a new infotainment touchscreen that measures 6.75 inches, and the system features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support. Other items such as six speakers, a dual-zone climate control system, 4.2-inch multi-info instrument display and leather seats remain as before."

Hello all. I was also surprised to hear of the availability of Apple Carplay. The salesman helping me confirmed this, and apparently the CH-R is one of the first Toyota’s in Malaysia to have such.
