Current Model
The C-HR has nimble handling, but unfortunately that is one of its few strengths. Unlike in other subcompact SUVs, all-wheel drive isn't available.
Visibility, especially to the rear, is horrendous, and the tortoise-slow C-HR takes more than 11 seconds to go from 0 to 60 mph. It does get a very good 29 mpg overall. The continuously variable transmission is mostly unobtrusive, but it amplifies engine noise. The ride is firm and tightly controlled. Wind noise is pronounced at highway speeds. Hidden rear door handles create a coupelike look but their tall location makes it difficult for kids to open the doors. Although the rear seat is roomy, the small windows create a dark, cavelike cabin. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility is standard. FCW and AEB with pedestrian detection are standard. For 2022, BSW and RCTW became standard.

The wild-styled C-HR is nimble and enjoyable to drive, but it also has several notable deficiencies. Unlike other subcompact-SUV competitors, this genre-bending model has no all-wheel-drive option.
Visibility is horrendous, and the C-HR is tortoise-slow, taking more than 11 seconds in the 0-60 mph dash. At least it gets a very good 29 mpg overall. The continuously variable transmission is mostly unobtrusive, but it amplifies engine noise. The ride is firm and tightly controlled. Wind noise is pronounced at highway speeds. Hidden rear door handles give the impression of a two-door coupe, but they make it difficult for kids to open the doors. The XLE Premium trim has more comfortable seats. Although the rear seat is roomy, the small windows create a dark, cave-like cabin. Advanced safety features are standard. For the model year 2021, the Toyota Safety Sense system has been upgraded to TSS 2.5. This suite of safety equipment includes forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking with low-light pedestrian and daytime bicyclist detection, lane departure warning and lane keeping assistance, automatic high beams and road sign assist. A version of lane keeping assistance (lane tracing assist) helps to keep the car in the center of the lane while the adaptive cruise control is being used. Adaptive cruise control is standard with the stop and go function. Blind spot warning and rear cross traffic are available.
