When it comes to cars, the better looking a model, the more popular the sales. The industry has known that since year one and makes no exceptions when it comes to the Toyota C-HR.
The latest Toyota is running hot on this theme. It’s pure leading-edge styling puts sports lines on top of SUV layouts.
Priced from $26,990 in front wheel drive manual, the two-tier C-HR line-up is not cheap but makes up for it with its long list of features. (The top model is $35,300.)
The C-HR includes:
• excellent levels of safety (including adaptive cruise control),
• autonomous emergency braking
• lane departure alert with steering control
• automatically dimming high-beam headlights
• reversing camera and front and rear parking sensors.
The C-HR’s suspension is supremely compliant and well controlled. It follows the road faithfully and resists the temptation to crash over harsh undulations, helping the car to feel well planted at speed.
A big feature is interior space. Thanks in part to its 4.36m length, the rear seat is suitable for two adults on longer journeys, or three for around town. The boot offers a wide opening with useable proportions and has a space-saver spare tyre.
Where it’s let down:
On pure spec trim, Toyota might not have ticked every box. The company has moved away from Apple CarPlay and Android Auto in favour of its own phone mirroring software that might not satisfy all tech heads.
