Stylish B-segment SUV takes the annual gong ahead of the Mazda CX-5 and Suzuki Swift.
The Toyota C-HR has snatched the annual Thailand Car of the Year award, now in its fourth year organised by the Thai Automotive Journalists Association.
The B-segment SUV from the country’s best-selling car brand has been praised for its bold design, effective hybrid powertrain and a newly-developed platform benefiting handling and ride factors.
The C-HR garnered 382 points ahead of the Mazda CX-5 (307) and Suzuki Swift (260).
The judges comprised of automotive journalists with at least three years of car-testing experience.
Eligible cars need to be all-new for the Thai market and have been launched between 1 Oct 2017 and 30 Sept 2018.
The previous winners were Honda CR-V, Mazda CX-3 and Ford Everest.
