Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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

By:

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.

Although Scion was snuffed out last year, the spirit of the entry-level brand lives on in Toyota models like the new C-HR subcompact SUV crossover. Although the C-HR was originally destined to wear a Scion badge in the States, it was a relatively painless process for Toyota to pivot and bring the funky crossover in as a Toyota. (The C-HR was already slated to be sold as a Toyota in overseas markets.) With vehicles such as the Nissan Juke, the Kia Soul, and the similarly sized Honda HR-V maintaining steady sales, it was critical that Toyota field a subcompact crossover in the United States.

Highs:
Surprisingly spacious and quiet interior, well-damped chassis.

Lows:
No Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, or navigation; CVT is a bummer; slower than it should be.

The C-HR comes out with bold styling, although that approach is not uncommon in the compact SUV market.

Although the strong design of the C-HR invites comparisons to the Nissan Juke, folks I talked to thought the Toyota didn't look quite as goofy.

The C-HR may look like the automotive equivalent of gauged ear lobes, but the dashboard electronics feel a little more like Grandpa's clock radio.

Although the 2-liter engine isn't overly powerful, the C-HR exhibits solid driving dynamics.

The big bonus for C-HR comes from Toyota's decision to equip all its cars with its Toyota Safety Sense driver assistance package, a collection of safety features using camera and radar to automatically brake before a collision and warn drivers of lane drifting. On top of that standard package, the C-HR also incorporates standard adaptive cruise control, which automatically matches the speed of slower traffic ahead, and can bring the car to a complete stop.

The emphasis on safety tech, and the lack of modern dashboard electronics, belies the youth-orientation of the C-HR. Its looks may be risky, but the driving experience certainly is not. And given that youthful buyers may need parental help for financing, Toyota may have hit on the perfect combination of youth and responsibility.

For 2017, the Toyota RAV4 gains a host of driver assistance features as standard equipment, including a forward collision mitigation system, lane departure warning, automatic high beams and adaptive cruise. The range-topping Platinum trim level is new this year.

Pros
Quiet demeanor on the road makes it a pleasant commuter vehicle
Rides smoothly in a variety of conditions
Plenty of cargo space for its size
High-tech safety features come standard

Cons
Modest acceleration from the sole engine offering
Fewer easily accessible storage compartments than most competitors

The 2017 Toyota RAV4 ranks 11 out of 18 Compact SUVs. The 2017 RAV4 faces stiff competition in the compact SUV class. It trails several rivals in terms of style and performance, but it has impressive safety features in all trims and one of the most spacious cabins in its class.

Pros
Impressive list of standard features
Easy-to-use infotainment system
Spacious cabin

Cons
Unimpressive acceleration
Plastic-heavy interior

By: 
usnews.com

There's a RAV4 for just about everyone, and while we applaud Toyota for adding more safety technology for 2017, the competition is worth a good look, too.
The 2017 Toyota RAV4 is the latest in a long line of compact crossover SUVs to grace the automaker's showrooms.

Pros
Upgraded, roomy interior
Lots of standard safety tech
Wide range of models available
Improved ride and handling
Hybrid is intriguing

Cons
Not the most polished crossover to drive
No third row
Unimpressive fuel economy
Quirky styling
