The Japanese market C-HR is powered by either 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine, or 1.8-litre Hybrid. The 2WD models are available with both engines, while the only motor for the 4WD models is 1.2-litre turbo. Model grades are 1.8 S, 1.8 G, 1.2 S-T, and 1.2 G-T.

The ASEAN production version was unveiled in Thailand on November 30, 2017 at the 34th Thailand International Motor Expo. For the Indonesian market, the C-HR was launched on April 10, 2018. The Hybrid version was also displayed in Indonesia at the 2017 and 2018 Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Shows.
