Vehicle identification

■ Vehicle identification number The vehicle identification number (VIN) is the legal identifier for your vehicle. This is the primary identification number for your Toyota. It is used in registering the ownership of your vehicle.

This number is also stamped on the top left of the instrument panel.

This number is stamped under the right-hand front seat.

Lubrication system

Toyota CH-R. Vehicle specifications

*: The engine oil capacity is a reference quantity to be used when changing the engine oil. Warm up and turn off the engine, wait more than 5 minutes, and check the oil level on the dipstick.

■ Engine oil selection "Toyota Genuine Motor Oil" is used in your Toyota vehicle. Use Toyota approved "Toyota Genuine Motor Oil" or equivalent to satisfy the following grade and viscosity.

Oil grade: ILSAC GF-5 multigrade engine oil

Recommended viscosity: SAE 0W-20

SAE 0W-20 is the best choice for good fuel economy and good starting in cold weather.

If SAE 0W-20 is not available, SAE 5W-20 oil may be used. However, it must be replaced with SAE 0W- 20 at the next oil change.

Toyota CH-R. Vehicle specifications

Oil viscosity (0W-20 is explained here as an example):

  • The 0W in 0W-20 indicates the characteristic of the oil which allows cold startability. Oils with a lower value before the W allow for easier starting of the engine in cold weather.
  • The 20 in 0W-20 indicates the viscosity characteristic of the oil when the oil is at high temperature. An oil with a higher viscosity (one with a higher value) may be better suited if the vehicle is operated at high speeds, or under extreme load conditions.

How to read oil container label: The International Lubricant Specification Advisory Committee (ILSAC) Certification Mark is added to some oil containers to help you select the oil you should use.

Cooling system

Electrical system


Specific voltage reading at 68ºF (20ºC):

Specific gravity reading at 68ºF (20ºC):

12.3 V or higher

If the specific voltage is lower than the standard value, charge the battery. (Voltage checked 20 minutes after the engine and all the lights are turned off)

1.25 or higher

If the specific gravity is lower than the standard value, charge the battery.

Charging rates

Quick charge
Slow charge

Continuously variable transmission

Toyota CH-R. Vehicle specifications

*: The fluid capacity is a reference quantity.

If replacement is necessary, contact your Toyota dealer.


■Continuously variable transmission fluid type Using continuously variable transmission fluid other than "Toyota Genuine CVT Fluid FE" may cause deterioration in shift quality, locking up of the transmission accompanied by vibration and, ultimately, damage to the vehicle's transmission.
