What’s new

  • The Toyota C-HR is an all-new model


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


  • Unlike on most rivals, all-wheel drive isn't available
  • Even in this slow class, acceleration is lethargic
  • Navigation, satellite radio and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto not offered
  • Pervasive road and engine noise in the cabin

Which C-HR does Edmunds recommend?

The Toyota C-HR is well-equipped in its base XLE form, with automatic headlights, dual-zone automatic climate control and traffic-adapting cruise control all standard. Considering the C-HR's high starting price (compared to the rest of the class), you might be wary of paying more for the XLE Premium, our recommended trim. But it doesn't cost much more than the XLE and includes desirable features such as heated front seats and a blind-spot monitoring system with rear cross-traffic alert. We think it's worth paying just a little more for the luxury and safety additions.

Edmunds' Expert Review

Overall rating

6.4 / 10

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.

Notably, we picked the 2018 Toyota C-HR as one of Edmunds' Best Small SUVs for this year.

2018 Toyota C-HR configurations

The 2018 Toyota C-HR comes in just two trim levels, though you do get a lot of standard features on both. The well-equipped base XLE comes loaded with just about everything the C-HR has to offer. Stepping up to the XLE Premium involves a relatively modest price bump and adds a few more luxury and safety features. Though there are no stand-alone factory options, a number of dealer-installed accessories are available, including a roof rack and cargo storage solutions.

Every C-HR is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine (144 horsepower, 139 pound-feet of torque) matched to the front wheels through a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). Standard features on the XLE include 18-inch wheels, automatic headlights with automatic high-beam control, LED daytime running lights, a rear spoiler, remote locking and unlocking, a driver information display, adjustable driving modes, a rearview camera, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, dual-zone automatic climate control, height-adjustable front seats, a 60/40-split rear seat, a cargo cover, a 7-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth, and a six-speaker audio system with HD radio and a USB port. Several advanced safety and convenience features are also standard, including traffic-adapting cruise control, brake hold at stoplights, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, and lane departure warning and intervention.

Upgrading to the XLE Premium trim gets you foglights, keyless entry and ignition, power-folding mirrors, heated front seats with two-way power lumbar for the driver, and  blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.

Trim tested

Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions that are fundamentally similar. The ratings in this review are based on our full test of the 2018 Toyota C-HR XLE Premium (2.0L inline-4 | CVT | FWD).


There's no getting around it: The C-HR is slow. You really need to plan your moves in advance because there's a long delay before it starts moving. Once underway, acceleration is weak. That's really too bad because otherwise it's a dynamically capable little crossover.


The C-HR is one of the slowest vehicles we've tested, taking a considerable 10.6 seconds to reach 60 mph. Acceleration is characterized by a long hesitation between a pedal stomp and any forward motion. This is true whether you're stopped or trying to pass slower traffic on the highway.


Coming to a stop from 60 mph required 119 feet, which is about average for cars in this class. In panic-braking tests, we experienced moderate nosedive and some residual bounce, but the C-HR tracked straight and remained controllable. In everyday driving, the brakes operate just as you'd expect.


There's not much feedback coming through the wheel, but it feels direct and accurate in a sporty kind of way. At parking lot speeds, the effort is appropriately low and weights up as speeds increase. Sport mode makes effort a little too heavy.


We were pleasantly surprised to discover that the C-HR is somewhat entertaining to drive on a twisty road, even with a not very powerful engine and a lack of grip from low-rolling-resistance tires. There's noticeable tire squeal under moderate cornering, and the tires really howl when pushed harder.


The small footprint and turning radius make it easy to maneuver the C-HR into tight spaces. The transmission works fine, but it's relatively unremarkable. Though the C-HR is classified as a subcompact crossover, the low chin spoiler scrapes on parking blocks and many driveways.


In terms of overall comfort, the C-HR is pretty good, but the amount of noise that makes its way into the cabin is a letdown. Over a long trip, that noise can add to the fatigue factor. Everything else seems to be well-executed in this regard.

Seat comfort

Even though there aren't a lot of adjustments, the front seats offer good padding and support to keep occupants comfortable over several hours. The fabric upholstery also breathes well in hot weather, eliminating the need for ventilation or cooling.

Ride comfort

For the most part, the C-HR delivers a comfortable ride. Smaller road imperfections are smoothed over as well as they are in other small SUVs, but there's a little jostling over moderate undulations.

Noise & vibration

The C-HR is loud inside. There's a noticeable amount of wind noise, even below highway speeds. Road noise is also present and increases at higher speeds and over coarse asphalt. The engine drones like a wounded cow under hard acceleration, and we noted an annoying rattle in the back of the cabin.

Climate control

The simple controls for the dual-zone climate control make it easy to operate, and the overall performance is good. Once the system was set, we never felt the need to readjust it.


The C-HR's interior is reasonably attractive thanks to a rather simple layout. It can accommodate adult passengers in all seats, though there are some drawbacks for taller drivers and rear passengers. Despite a few issues, we think most drivers will be fine with the interior over the long run.

Ease of use

The C-HR's simple layout is attractive, and the main controls are easy to operate for the most part. Some of the more advanced features, such as adaptive cruise control, were a little more difficult to figure out. Some staffers mentioned having to consult the owner's manual.

Getting in/getting out

Front passengers have easy seat access afforded by a slightly higher seating position, which makes slipping into the cabin a breeze. There's no climbing up or stooping down. Rear passengers need to dip their heads a little to clear the sloping roofline, a trade-off of the C-HR's sporty styling.

Driving position

The steering wheel doesn't telescope back far enough, even for average-size drivers. As a result, you have to sit closer and more upright than preferred. Drivers smaller of stature should be just fine.


There's more interior space than you'd expect from such a small crossover. There's plenty of room up front in all dimensions. The rear seats can indeed hold regular adults in decent comfort. But the thick rear roof pillar and high windows might feel a little claustrophobic.


Outward visibility is excellent thanks to the thin and well-profiled front roof pillars. The rear window is big enough to see all you need despite the big rear pillars. And there's very little guesswork when backing into a space so you won't have to rely on the tiny rearview monitor.


The interior is well-designed and uses quality materials that exceed expectations for the class. Were it not for an annoying rattle in the back of the car, this score could have been higher.


It should come as no surprise that subcompact crossovers are limited when it comes to cargo capacity, but the C-HR has one of the smallest maximum spaces in the class. You'd be better off thinking of it as a raised hatchback rather than a crossover.

Small-item storage

There's an acceptable amount of storage for your personal items, with small door pockets, decent-size cupholders, and a center armrest bin that is about average in size. The typical smart storage solutions that Toyota is known for are absent.

Cargo space

With the rear seats in place, you have 19 cubic feet of cargo space, which splits the difference between the C-HR's primary competition. The maximum capacity is 36.4 cubes, which is significantly smaller than any other subcompact crossover.

Child safety seat accommodation

LATCH anchors are easily accessed, but a rear-facing child seat will require you to move the front passenger seat well forward.


Toyota on the whole has been lagging behind the competition when it comes to technology, and the C-HR is an example. It lacks the smartphone integration that rivals include as standard. But it does offer more advanced safety features and driver assistance.

Audio & navigation

The audio system in the C-HR is decent but not at all impressive. It lacks some bass overall, but clarity is acceptable. The touchscreen mounted atop the dash is easy to read at a glance and operate with minimal distraction, too.

Smartphone integration

Puzzlingly, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are not offered. With no factory navigation available, this is even more odd to us because the touchscreen only controls audio. On top of that, we experienced occasional slowdowns in the system's response.

Driver aids

We never had any frontal collision warnings, which either means it's well-tuned or not working (we're inclined to think it is working). Adaptive cruise control works well and operates down to a stop. The lane-keeping system is also good, but it only alerts you and doesn't steer you back in line.

Voice control

The voice controls worked pretty well, but considering that the system only operates the audio and phone, it's acceptable at best.

Hot Little SUV
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.
Super Sporty
Sober Boss,10/07/2017
I owned a Subaru Legacy and had thought to buy another when the time came to purchase. I was blown away the first time I saw this in a parking lot. I love that it looks like a 2 door. Felt like it would be above my price and was happy to find it affordable for a beautiful new car. I test drove it and then walked away for a week. Went and drove a Subaru Crosstrek, Nissan Rogue Sport and Mazda 3 then went back to the CHR. I smiled and laughed the whole time I was driving this car. So much more fun then the others. Handles great, speedy and sporty. I have had so many comments that it looks like a car from the future or a spaceship. I love that, couldn't stand the thought of a boring sedan. I took a risk and went for the red, I had the windows tinted and it looks hot! No worries about it being a new model since it is a Toyota. Dealership was wonderful and made the sale a pleasure. Hope to have it for a long time. The only down side is the small back windows do create more of a blindspot than I am used to and if I had children in the back seat I don't think they would be able to see out. But since I don't have kids it is not an issue for me.
Sexy little SUV
This is the perfect vehicle for the woman in your life. At 5’2” it is easy for me to enter and exit the car. The front seats are very comfortable (being a person who has had back surgeries) that is very important for lengthy trips. I also like the fact that the rear camera is located within the rear view mirror as that is the natural place your eyes 👀 go to when backing up. The voice controls are awesome so you don’t have to figet around when driving. Nice night detailing. When you open the door Toyota CHR illuminates on the ground which gives it a classy feel. The ride is very comfortable and the safety features are amazing. I have only had my C-HR for a month and I really like it. It not too big or to small it’s just right.
Zips Right Along
Anthony Sanseverino,09/04/2017
After reading a couple of other reviews that said acceleration (especially to Highway speeds) was poor, I was quite apprehensive about leasing/purchasing this vehicle. But, after a test drive that allowed me to accelerate quickly, and get on the freeway, I've come to the conclusion that those other reviewers must be use to V-6, or V-8 power. Or, they aren't use to the smoothness of the CVT. As someone who transitioned from a 4-cylinder 2005 Toyota RAV-4 to the 2018 C-HR, I believe that the acceleration is quite adequate. And, a couple of times, I've had my head pushed back against the head-restraint. While I'm not one who needs a Navigation system to show me where to go, the Bluetooth connection for my cell phone (though, I don't use it often) is a great thing to have. Now, I've only had the car for a little over a week, but so far, it's been AWESOME! And, if the on-board computer is to be believed, the MPG on each trip has ranged from very good to absolutely fantastic (ranges between 22.6 to 40.8). While the SmartKey system took a bit of getting use (I've been turning a key for over 40 years :) ), it's a great feature. My only complaints are: the base model should also be equipped with the BSM system, RCTA and Backup camera; considering the sportiness of the car, dual-exhaust would have been neat (luckily, I can buy (and have bought) bolt-on dual-exhaust tips; and a choice of interior colors (I love the exterior Metallic Silver Knockout, but the black interior gets hot during the summer months in Phoenix, AZ).

2018 Toyota C-HR videos

this is the Toyota CHR it's a subcompact made to transport five people get good fuel economy and look pretty stylish - question is what happens if it were a race car with 600 horsepower rather than just build a show car Twitter and partnered DG spec wanted to build a race car that actually works that goal meant a thorough reengineering of the car from racing slicks brakes and suspension to a replacement of the stock engine and CVT with a more durable engine and 5-speed manual transmission both built to withstand upwards of 600 horsepower the low front splitter and massive rear wing can create as much as 300 pounds of downforce so much that the team had to add bracing to the lift gate so it wouldn't warp under the load the interiors been stripped down to bare metal there's a roll cage but there are no front windows as Racing prepared as a CHR maybe there's only one in existence and we aren't the only people driving it today so there are some warnings to preserve the lifespan of the drivetrain the engine wasn't making full power and we were told to shift delicately and smoothly we couldn't go full throttle in first or second gear and there would be someone supervising us from the passenger seat and talking to us on the radio and we'd only get one lap [Music] it's like my 72 Chevy c10 so I just got out of the art tooned Toyota CHR and the thing that you don't realize about driving a car like this is it's just sensory overload the thing doesn't have windows it's really loud inside you've got somebody talking into your ears through a through your radio and there's so much to take in at once it's kind of weird driving position you're up a little higher but the steering is doesn't have a lot of feel but it's very quick and the car is moving very fast you know we're down a lot less in terms of horsepower versus the 600 horsepower they say it makes in like full race kill mode they have it a lot lower because they have a lot of people like me cycling through and they don't want to grenade the engine but still like I'm comfortable with where it's at for my first lap here at big willow there's a lot of tire on that car and a lot of braking capability on that car so it's being confident enough to approach those limits and learning how to approach them this is a car that has downforce a so they learn how to trust that and know what that feels like and it's one of the situations we have to go fast or in order to stick harder to the ground I'm not even approaching those limits yet they're saying this thing can do you know upwards of 150 and to turn eight here at big willow which is an absurd amount of speed and I wasn't even anywhere near that because it's a unique driving experience versus a traditional car one of the things if keep in mind is I'm shifting very gingerly because this is essentially a stock transmission it's been treated in a couple ways to make it stronger and more durable but the skier set is almost like what you get in a standard Scion tC so with that my shifting is not something you just bang the gear because that's how you break the transmission and likewise with clutch you see it to be very smooth because they're relying on a lot of Oh a hardware that can't with standard was not designed to withstand 600 horsepower and you know drivers like myself cycling through it over and over and over again overall a really cool experience and I hope we get to go back out again soon [Music] if you like what you see here hit subscribe or check out more on engine YouTube channel

Driving the Race-Prepped, 600-Horsepower Toyota C-HR R-Tuned

What does it take to turn the subcompact and fuel-efficient Toyota C-HR into a race car? That's what Toyota sought to find out with the C-HR R-Tuned. Built by Toyota partner DG-Spec, this car is no longer a friendly commuter — it now sports as much as 600 horsepower and 300 pounds of downforce. To prove its credibility, Toyota invited Edmunds Senior Writer Carlos Lago to Willow Springs International Raceway for a closer look and a brief test drive.

Toyota C-HR vs. the competition

2018 Honda HR-V

2018 Honda HR-V

Toyota C-HR vs. Honda HR-V

These two subcompacts line up neatly, even with the format of their names. Neither will wow you with acceleration, but the HR-V is available with a six-speed manual transmission that makes it a more interesting driving choice for some. Along with slightly better fuel economy, the HR-V also offers available all-wheel drive and a lot more cargo space thanks to its clever folding rear-seat design.

Compare Toyota C-HR & Honda HR-V features

Toyota C-HR vs. Mazda CX-3

The CX-3 may not stand out as much as the C-HR, but its classy styling looks more mature. It's also a little more enjoyable to drive. It has sportier handling, and its engine and transmission are more responsive than the C-HR's. The edge on fuel economy also goes to the CX-3, but only by a smidge. On the downside, the CX-3's cargo space behind the rear seat is among the tightest in the segment.

Compare Toyota C-HR & Mazda CX-3 features

Toyota C-HR vs. Ford EcoSport

The EcoSport is Ford's new subcompact crossover SUV. Its turbocharged engine should make the EcoSport feel more powerful around town compared to the C-HR. Cargo space behind the rear seat is the same for both, but the EcoSport has more with the seats folded. While the EcoSport has slightly worse fuel economy, it is available with all-wheel drive and an easier-to-use infotainment system that offers superior phone integration.

More about the 2018 Toyota C-HR

The 2018 Toyota C-HR is a subcompact crossover that brings bold styling and sportiness to a segment typically defined by a low cost of entry and fuel efficiency. Its as-new starting price is notably higher than rivals, but a lengthy list of standard features helps justify the cost. While most Toyotas are offered in multiple trims, the C-HR is available in two well-equipped levels. This makes sense considering the C-HR was originally developed for Toyota's Scion brand (which typically sold vehicles in just one trim). There are no factory options aside from a two-tone exterior paint scheme that Toyota calls R-Code.

The 2018 Toyota C-HR is offered in XLE and XLE Premium trims. The base XLE boasts a high number of standard features, including dual-zone automatic climate control, a rearview camera, a 7-inch touchscreen and HD radio. Toyota's Safety Sense P suite of driver aids comes with every C-HR and consists of a forward collision warning system with emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and lane departure warning and intervention. Most of these systems are only available on rivals in their top-trim configuration if they are available at all.

The XLE Premium doesn't cost much more and adds heated seats and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, along with a few other upgrades. We think the XLE Premium is the C-HR to get because the price premium is low relative to the features it adds. Blind-spot monitoring in particular is a desirable feature since the C-HR has wide rear pillars and small windows, which create significant blind spots.

The C-HR's sporty handling gives it a distinctive advantage over many competing subcompact crossovers. There's also enough headroom in the front for 6-foot-plus drivers, and its unique exterior and interior styling gives it an edge. However, there are several missing features that may discourage the younger buyers who Toyota is trying to court with this vehicle. There's no way to get leather or a sunroof on the C-HR, and features such as navigation, satellite radio and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto are not available.

Despite its comparatively high price and baffling exclusion of modern technology options, the C-HR is a great choice if you want a subcompact crossover that marches to its own beat. Use Edmunds' shopping tools to configure, price and find the perfect 2018 Toyota C-HR for you.

2018 Toyota C-HR SUV Overview

Should I lease or buy a 2018 Toyota C-HR?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
