- Fall 2020
What to expect
- We don't expect any major changes for 2021
- Part of the first C-HR generation introduced for 2018
What is the C-HR?
The 2021 C-HR is a compact crossover that sits at the bottom of Toyota's lineup, serving as an entry-level model akin to the Yaris or the Corolla. Like everything in this class, the C-HR packs flashy styling, though we're split on how well the design works in person. We expect few if any changes for 2021, though the C-HR had a refresh in 2020 that brought with it new front-end styling and more features, including LED headlights and Android Auto smartphone compatibility.
Still, that wasn't quite enough to drive the C-HR up in our compact crossover rankings. A gutless engine and lack of all-wheel drive hold it back in this class. If you're in the market for a small, stylish crossover, consider our top-ranked choices in its class: the Hyundai Kona, Kia Soul and Honda HR-V.
The C-HR should be available in three trim levels: LE, XLE and Limited, and all C-HRs use the same powertrain. Features on the C-HR include keyless entry, dual-zone climate control and an 8-inch touchscreen display.
Despite an update in 2020, the Toyota C-HR still feels a step or two behind the class leaders. A weak engine, no available all-wheel drive and a cramped interior hold the C-HR back.
