Halloween has crept up on the calendar, and that means the Georgetown Morgue has opened its doors once again to haunt anyone brave enough to enter. The building dates back to 1928, and its history is as dark as the attraction that currently occupies the premises.
Seattle Refined's Brandon Burnstead ventured inside the Georgetown Morgue for a frightening night, but his drive to the haunted house was not scary at all because he chose the 2019 Toyota C-HR.
Halloween costume fashion
This crossover has an athletic, edgy exterior that you can customize with a variety of color options, including an exclusive black or white roof on R-Code models. It sits atop available 18-inch wheels, giving the driver-focused cockpit a great view of the road. Comfort is the only option with the available leather-trimmed seats, and the front ones have a heated bucket design for those cold fall evenings. You can also use the standard dual-zone automatic climate control system to customize the temperature on each side of the car.
Easier than trick-or-treating
Reach your destination faster, or escape somewhere scary, with an available Smart Key System that starts the car with one button. You can conveniently activate the Brake Hold with the touch of a button too. Press it when your foot is on the brake pedal and when you're completely stopped, and the feature will hold the brake until you press on the accelerator.
The Multi-Information Display behind the leather-trimmed steering wheel is visible at a glance, showing you things like the average fuel economy, outside temperature, driving modes, and G-Force Monitor. The touch-enabled 8-inch audio display on the dash can control your Halloween jams, and it's also your eyes in the back of the vehicle to show what might be sneaking up behind you.
Have a Halloween party on your calendar this month? With the standard 60/40 split rear seats, you can carry snacks, decorations, and more in the back of the C-HR, easily opened with the rear hatch.
Travel faster and smoother than a witch on a broomstick
Toyota C-HR gives you 144 horsepower and is prepared for city cruising or your favorite winding roads. An advanced Continuously Variable Transmission with intelligence and Shift Mode brings new meaning to automatic transmission, making your ride as smooth and efficient as possible. Drivers who like more control can use Sequential Shiftmatic Mode, which lets you manually shift between seven virtual gears. Shift to Sport Mode for a race-car feel that sharpens the throttle for lively acceleration. And underneath the vehicle, Toyota C-HR's front suspension allows you to maneuver sharp corners while the rear multi-link suspension employs shock absorbers for smooth city rides.
Calm your fears with a comprehensive safety system
Thanks to the standard Star Safety System and Toyota Safety Sense P technology (TSS-P), you can have confidence that the Toyota C-HR will help prevent accidents before they happen. That means traction control, anti-lock braking, smart stop technology, and more.
- Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection: Using an in-vehicle camera and radar to help detect a vehicle or a pedestrian in front of you, this system is designed to help you mitigate or avoid a potential collision.
- Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist: Lane Departure Alert is designed to detect lane departure on roads with visible lane markings.
- Automatic High Beams: A camera inside the vehicle detects the lights from other vehicles and uses that visual information to adjust the lights on the C-HR. You can also count on the vehicle's standard projector-beam halogen headlights and LED Daytime Running Lights to provide a safe drive on dimly lit days.
Save the tense moments for the holiday haunts, and feel perfectly comfortable inside the Toyota C-HR.
Prices for the 2019 Toyota C-HR start at $21,145 MSRP. For more information, visit buyatoyota.com.
