Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

Edward S., FL (2018 Toyota C-HR)

"very good pickup, handles around corners the best of all vehicles that I have ever driven"

Anonymous, ON (2018 Toyota C-HR)

"Great acceleration and manuverability in traffic and parking lots. Easy to park."

Anonymous, WA (2018 Toyota C-HR)

"Handling is awesome. Acceleration stinks! I can't believe a 2.0 L engine can lag this badly. It must be a fuel efficiency thing. My old 1.3L Datsun B210 GX would crush it!"

Scott Z., MI (2018 Toyota C-HR)


Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"Very quiet hides bumps in road Able to raise seat height Lumbar support"

David M., ON (2018 Toyota C-HR)

"The sight lines while backing up are not great. Hard to see out rear side window"

James R., CA (2018 Toyota C-HR)

"The noise from the engine even during low engine RPM is really loud and it sounds like it is revving really high."

Kurt D., CO (2018 Toyota C-HR)

"with any/all of the windows down, it has a very loud buffeting sound and feel"

Anonymous, GA (2018 Toyota C-HR)

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
