Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The European small SUV segment has exploded in the last few years, and Toyota has launched the C-HR to steal more sales from its rivals. It's designed the new C-HR with Europe in mind, which is why Toyota has taken a radical new styling direction compared to its worthy other offerings.

The name C-HR stands for Coupe-High Rider, and the styling suits the name, with rakish lines more in-keeping with models like the BMW X4 and Mercedes GLC Coupe than conventional crossovers.

Under the skin the C-HR uses the Toyota New Global Architecture. This also underpins the current Prius hybrid and helps deliver composed handling and a comfortable ride. The choice of a punchy turbo petrol or frugal hybrid means everyone is catered for, but the former is definitely more fun to drive.

Crucially for this image conscious class, Toyota has worked hard to deliver a distinctive interior. There are plenty of high-grade materials, and a decent tally of kit, while the layout is good and features plenty of bright colours.

• Best crossovers on sale right now

Externally, the C-HR is similar in size to a Nissan Qashqai, which means you get a decent sized boot and reasonable head and legroom. The small back windows do make the rear claustrophobic, however.

Pro:
Head-turning looks, smart cabin, great ride and handling

Cons:
Thrashy hybrid power delivery, claustrophobic rear seats, no diesel

There's no doubt about it, the C-HR is a very welcome addition to the small crossover class. The looks will polarise, the infotainment is average and the engine is eager but needs a little extra poke, yet the well-equipped, edgy and comfortable Toyota brings a lot to the table we like.
Toyota has taken its time producing a proper rival to the Honda HR-V and Mazda CX-3, but the new C-HR delivers the goods
............

Indeed, the only thing that that will save Mazda, Honda and others from sweating bullets over potential lost sales are the supply restrictions that are keeping Toyota Australia's order books to 6000 units for all of 2017.

Do what we'd do and buy the base car, choose some nicer alloys, and save a few grand.

Pro:
Genuinely interesting design
Standard equipment levels
Balanced new chassis
Good refinement and comfort
Improved service intervals

Cons:
Small infotainment screen
No CarPlay/Android Auto
Engine acceptable, but nothing more
Koba spec a little expensive
Short supply spells waiting list

Wow, you won’t mistake the Toyota C-HR for anything else.

Nope. When we first saw it at motor shows, the C-HR made a big impression. Now we have reviewed it on the road, we can say this small Toyota crossover sure keeps its impact among traffic.

Actually it’s not as small as you might think. It might look like a Juke rival in photos, but it’s more the size of a Qashqai. But it’s not a family car, because interior space is compromised by the eye-socking looks. So you end up with something that could sit on the same shopping list as a Fiat 500X or the new Audi Q2.

I’m guessing it’s a coupe version of the RAV4 then?

No way. The RAV4 is bigger again. But the main thing is, the C-HR is mechanically all-new.

It's no secret that Americans don't buy hatchbacks and station wagons en masse anymore. But the last two decades have revealed that people really like them if they ride a bit higher, have optional all-wheel drive and look more like an SUV — i.e., a crossover. The outrageously successful Toyota RAV4 is a prime example, and now Toyota is hoping you'll have a similar affinity toward the all-new 2018 Toyota C-HR.

The C-HR is smaller and more affordable than the RAV4. In fact, it was originally developed for Toyota's now-defunct Scion brand, which largely explains the C-HR's flamboyant styling and sporty handling. These two key attributes, along with the extensive list of standard safety features, are the main reasons to consider the C-HR in our opinion.

pros

Sporty handling makes it fun to zip around turns
Comes standard with plenty of features, including advanced safety
Swoopy styling helps it stand out

cons

Unlike on most rivals, all-wheel drive isn't available
Can seem slow when accelerating to highway speeds
Navigation, satellite radio and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto not offered

The 2018 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid ranked #8 in Compact SUVs. Currently the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid has a score of 8.3 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 25 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Terrific mpg ratings
Lots of cargo space
Comfortable, spacious seats
Lots of standard driver assistance features

Cons
Uninspiring cabin materials
Lower safety ratings than some rivals

The Hybrid can now be had in a new LE base trim level, further lowering its point of entry. The SE also gains 0.4 inch of ground clearance.

PROS
Great fuel economy for a compact crossover
Small price premium over standard RAV4
One of the biggest, more useful cargo areas of any compact crossover
Advanced safety and driver aids come standard

CONS
Real leather seating is not available
Noticeable shudder when gas engine kicks in
Less useful interior storage as well
Interior more utilitarian in look and feel than those of competitors

Its angled headlamps and sharply creased bodywork give the RAV4 an assertive presence, but don’t be fooled—under the skin, it’s a practical, comfortable, and easygoing ute. A 176-hp 2.5-liter four and a six-speed automatic are standard with either front- or all-wheel drive. The all-wheel-drive hybrid returned 31 mpg in our testing. A 6.1-inch infotainment system is standard on LE, SE, and XLE trims; Limited models get a 7.0-inch unit. An all-new RAV4 hits showrooms before the end of 2018.

Pros
Standard active-safety features,
supremely practical,
impressive towing ability.

Cons
Subpar fuel economy,
inferior infotainment,
all-new model is imminent.
