Toyota C-HR

2019
  • Road Test
  • Predicted Reliability
  • Predicted Owner Satisfaction
The C-HR is nimble and enjoyable to drive, but it also has several notable deficiencies. Unlike other subcompact SUVs, the C-HR doesn't offer all-wheel drive. Visibility is horrendous, and the C-HR is tortoise-slow, taking 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 make it difficult for kids to open the doors. Although the rear seat is roomy, the small windows create a dark, cavelike cabin. Though forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking are standard, blind spot warning and rear cross traffic warning are standard only on the Limited and XLE trims.

Toyota C-HR 2018
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.
