Which C-HR does Edmunds recommend?
Edmunds' Expert Review
Overall rating3 / 5
The popularity of subcompact crossovers is growing and with the introduction of the Toyota C-HR last year, so, too, are the choices available to shoppers. In its inaugural year, we noted the C-HR's sporty handling and generous list of features (including advanced safety equipment) as some of its strengths. We also pointed out the noticeable absence of Apple CarPlay, an integrated navigation system and leather upholstery on the available features list. Well, what a difference a year makes: The 2019 Toyota C-HR can now be had with all of them.
We're still not fans of the weak engine and its lazy acceleration, while the lack of an all-wheel-drive option should continue to be a drawback for those in cold-weather climates. On the whole, the C-HR's updates for 2019 go a long way. In particular, its new base LE trim drops the price of admission to be competitive with its chief rivals: the Honda HR-V, Hyundai Kona and Mazda CX-3. Meanwhile, the top trim gets a new name, more features and a corresponding bump in price.
Trim levels & features
For 2019, the Toyota C-HR is available in three trim levels, including the new entry-level LE trim that's more competitive against other subcompact crossovers when it comes to price. The XLE adds a few niceties and safety features, while the top trim is now called the Limited and comes with a noticeable price jump from last year.
Every C-HR is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine (144 horsepower, 139 pound-feet of torque) matched to only front-wheel drive and a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). Standard features for the base LE trim include 17-inch steel wheels, automatic headlights, LED daytime running lights, heated mirrors, a rear spoiler, keyless entry, adjustable driving modes, dual-zone automatic climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, height-adjustable front seats, cloth upholstery, 60/40-split folding rear seats, a cargo cover, an 8-inch touchscreen, a rearview camera, Bluetooth phone and streaming audio, a USB port, Apple CarPlay, and a six-speaker audio system.
Several advanced safety and convenience features are also standard, including automatic high beams, adaptive cruise control, brake hold at stoplights, lane keeping assist, and forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking.
The XLE trim upgrades to 18-inch alloy wheels, power-folding mirrors, keyless ignition and entry, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, blind-spot warning and rear cross-traffic alert.
The top-of-the-line Limited trim gets you foglights, automatic wipers, leather upholstery, heated front seats, driver two-way power lumbar adjustment, and an upgraded infotainment system (optional on XLE) that adds a Wi-Fi hotspot, remote vehicle controls, and satellite and HD radio. A navigation system can be integrated into the standard touchscreen only on the Limited trim.
Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions that are fundamentally similar. The ratings in this review are based on our full test of the Toyota C-HR XLE Premium (2.0L inline-4 | CVT automatic | FWD).
Since this test was conducted in 2018, the current C-HR has received some revisions, including a new base trim, the renaming of the XLE Premium trim to Limited, and a shuffling of some standard features between models. Our findings remain broadly applicable to this year's C-HR, however.

Toyota C-HR vs. the competition
2019 Toyota C-HR
2019 Honda HR-V
Toyota C-HR vs. Honda HR-V
Neither the HR-V nor the C-HR will impress you with its acceleration, but the Honda is almost a full second quicker to 60 mph. The HR-V does have a clear advantage when it comes to cargo capacity, though, with 24.3 cubic feet to the C-HR's 19 cubic feet. The Honda also benefits from some clever storage solutions and pulls ahead again for those in cold-weather climates since the C-HR is not available with all-wheel drive.
Toyota C-HR vs. Mazda CX-3
From the evocative styling to the engaging driving dynamics and fuel efficiency, there's a lot to like about the Mazda CX-3. Were it not for real-world practicality, it could be a class leader, but the tiny cargo space and cramped rear seats keep it from garnering that top spot. It reaches 60 mph 2 seconds quicker than the C-HR and is considerably more fun to drive.
Toyota C-HR vs. Hyundai Kona
The Hyundai Kona is the most recent addition to the subcompact crossover class and benefits from having benchmarks to meet or beat. With the 1.6-liter turbo engine, it's the quickest in the class and has plenty of pep right off the line. Its handling is appropriately confident. As with most Hyundais, the Kona also gets you a lot of standard features for the money along with the industry's longest warranty.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 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.
