The wild-styled C-HR is nimble and enjoyable to drive, but several deficiencies should take it out of contention for most buyers. 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, yet agreeable. Wind noise is pronounced at highway speeds.

While the rear seat is roomy, the small windows create a dark, cave-like cabin. Advanced safety features are standard -- which is a plus.
