Toyota C-HR (ENG) – Test Drive and Review

Toyota C-HR was designed based on C-HR concept, which debuted at the 2014 Frankfurt Motor Show. C-HR was designed in Europe, with European market in mind, but when executives from other markets saw it, they wanted C-HR as well. The Japanese designed a car, which looks bold from every angle, but remains practical. Toyota C-HR doesn’t look big, but it’s bigger than Nissan Juke, and almost as long, as Nissan Qashqai. Toyota C-HR is bigger than Citroen C4 Cactus, and about the same size as DS4 or KIA Niro. Or Mitsubishi ASX, which also has a bigger boot. C-HR boot has 377 litres capacity, just a bit smaller, than in Volkswagen Golf. Toyota C-HR is powered either by a 1.8 hybrid drivetrain from Toyota Prius or a 1.2 litre 4 cylinder turbo petrol engine.

  1. Just got this car, traded in my FRS. Now that I have a baby, Had to have more room. Not even a week and I already love it. We’re here in Utah as of rightnow. Good in snow too, not the best. But great car!!

  2. 80% of the time they should stick with the concept. On a more serious note, the only thing that kept me from going with one of these is the lack of all wheel drive. The back seats that fold over but leave that ledge wasn't a deal breaker, but it is annoying.

  3. all this videos is basically all about disclaimers that its slow and all that well trust me I have been close to at least three and that car is amazing and fast when in sport mode or in normal mode so hun I don't know were you got that info or car from

  4. This is a great example of a car which has let the design team run loose.
    What a huge disappointment.
    When are Toyota finally going to realise that practicality wins out over style.
    The 10 year old Mitsubishi ASX is a best seller due to its descent rear head room and boot space.
    We want a people mover that's not as big as the RAV4
    You have nothing to offer me.

  5. Everyone keeps moaning at the fact that is too dark at the back.. I mean, when the kids are in my car the only thing I want them to do is fall asleep so the dark is perfect for me!

  6. Just get a Honda Civic Hatchback if you're in the USA. More cargo room. Much more horsepower and turbo charged. Much better MPG. Better safety features (Honda Sensing beats Toyota TSS-P hands down). Android Auto (not available at all with the C-HR). Moon-roof available on most trims. Just hands down the civic hatchback is a superior car for about the same price. I was originally going to purchase the Toyota C-HR. I wanted a subcompact SUV for cargo and I really liked the body style of the C-HR. But I decided to be a smart shopper and look at other options and started comparing the C-HR to other subcompact SUVs but then started looking at hatchbacks as well. Finally decided on the Civic Hatchback. The cargo space for the C-HR is extremely small by comparison. The Civic Hatchback has more than double the C-HR's (with the seats down) and it isn't even classed as a subcompact SUV….

    Also the Honda subcompact SUV, the HR-V, totally beats the CH-R in most features as well. BTW I went with the Honda Civic Hatchback over the Honda HR-V as I like the additional power of the Civic plus I just didn't need the extra cargo space of the HR-V. If you want tons of cargo space though, then go with the HR-V.

    The only thing the C-HR really has going for it is its awesome looking body style. The C-HR is a really sharp looking car, I'll give Toyota that. However looks are definitely not everything…

  7. I just rented this car, huge blind spot rear pillar. I always feel there is a car in that blind spot. I double check all the time. i bottomed out the front end making a right turn out of a gas station. Funny, I was looking for the twelve volt socket and couldn't find one. My Compass has one in front and two in back. The gas mileage on the screen is 26.7, driving in Orlando, Florida. MPG is not as impressive as people are posting. The sensors go off if move over to the left turn lane and there are reflector markers. I changed lanes to the right and solid white line and the sensor went off. No cars around, so I assume it must be the lines in the road.

  8. I really dont have a clue about how good the Nissan JUKE is overall but it looks really ungly. If it excels in all other aspects I can understand why someone would prefer the Juke (I think it's cheaper, too) but C-HR looks amazing …and it will look fresh in 10 years, too
