We were looking to replace wife's 2010 Ford Edge Ltd. (loved the car- Ext warranty run out) We decided not to go back to Ford as the Edge has design and structural flaws in the newer model. (first had experience through Sister-in-law - Ford could not fix) We looked at and test drove VW, Jeep, and did not like the looks of Mazda, Nissan, Chevy, and did not want the high-end models, BMW, Porsche, Jag. I had seen the Ch-R in reviews - So I suggested Toyota - WHAT? We have never owned a Toyota, Drove the Rav 4 (edge like and size) drove the 86 (too small) Drove the CH-R. Wife loved it (5'-2") sporty 2 door look with 4 doors, hatchback, good gas mileage, and I (6'-1") rode in the back seat without too many problems, comfy even. BUT - only comes in two trim level with virtually no extras. NO NAV - can't get it in the CH-R, Cloth Seats. BUT - Toyota dealer customized the car with two tone Leather (like the Rav 4) and Remote Start. Wife loves the car, Small, (easy to drive and park) Sporty (great design look) and Priced right (under 26000) We look forward to many years with this car.
This is odd, but my husband and I have also been loyal Jeep owners. We have owned Jeeps- everything from the new Cherokee, to Grand Cherokee (and still have a Wrangler) for the past 30+ years. I wanted a small crossover, and decided to go outside the Jeep family only after I first laid eyes on the CHR. I absolutely fell in love with the styling. At first glance I truly thought I would not be able to afford it, but was pleasantly surprised by the price tag. I have owned it for just over 2 weeks and really love the way it handles. Being used to the lower gear ratio of the Wrangler, the CHR feels like a speed demon. I would love to see this vehicle with a sun roof and navigation... I am hoping that they come out with these options. This is an awesome vehicle and I hope to be driving it for years to come!
I just purchased a C-HR premium and could not be happier. It wil be used mainly in the city and the amount of safety features was well worth the money. Great styling and very co for table interior. Acceleration could be better than however, works perfect for our use.
Great looking car! Ive owned it for almost 2 months now and have not one regret of my purchase. Great handling and the style inside and out will fit right in to the future cars. First reveiwer claims it has poor resale value... how would you know since this is the first model ever that had just been released? Toyota has great reliability which is key to a loyal long term customer.
We liked the exterior looks of this car, but lack of power and small interior made this is no-go for us. The front passenger seating required that knees practically be touching the dashboard. I floored it at a green light, and no one could tell - it just gently accelerated up to speed - I would hate to think about trying to pass someone on the freeway or going up a steep hill. Blind spots due to large pillars to the left and right of rear window, but Toyota Safety Sense standard is nice, though this car has the pared-down version for smaller vehicles, not the full-featured version like the RAV4, Camry, etc. We wound up purchasing a RAV4 instead - more power, more room, more features, etc. But don't expect to use Toyota's telenav through your smartphone - it's worse than using a printed out map - my 2002 Lexus GPS ran circles around it. Come on Toyota, admit your mistake, dump telenav, and go with Android Auto and Apple Car Play like everyone else has figured out, or do you want to lose hundreds of thousands of car sales?
