There is a lot of hype surrounding the 2018 Toyota C-HR. The crossover is being marketed for its striking style, decent performance and low payment options.

So is the car worth its advertised $22,500 starting price?

Design

The C-HR is both futuristic and sporty-looking. The hood, headlamps, radiator grille and front bumper resemble the ones carried by the RAV4. However, the C-HR is more compact in appearance due to its chopped off roof and it has a smoother body compared to its SUV counterpart. The rear of the crossover is pretty sleek with its extended roof spoiler and bootlid spoiler. The rear passenger door of the vehicle is unique too.

Despite the smaller design compared to the RAV4, the C-HR can comfortably fit four adult passengers. There is also plenty of headroom for the occupants of the vehicle.

Engine

The C-HR is equipped with a 2.0-liter inline-four engine. The output of the unit is 144 hp and 139 lb-ft of torque. The power of the car goes to the front wheels and it is distributed via a continuously variable transmission that allows it to have enough acceleration during climbs, predictable responses, mild noise and modest level of vibrations.

The crossover has fuel economy rate of 44.8-74.3 mpg. The CO2 emissions of the vehicle are rated at 134-87 g/km.

Tech

Among the notable technologies found in the auto are the standard active-safety systems providing the vehicle’s adaptive cruise, lane-keep assist, automatic high beams and pre-collision braking. The said elements are usually provided by other competitors as optional features.

Recommendation

Overall, the Toyota C-HR may be along the average grade when compared to its rivals. Motor1.com recommended that potential buyers of the crossover should shop around for better alternatives first before settling down for it.

5 Important Features Of The 2018 Toyota CH-R

Let’s go straight to the point. Toyota outdid themselves with the new CH-R, their entry to the SUV crossover segment. It made its debut at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show, where it wowed motor enthusiasts with the very aggressive styling, rich interiors, and a competitive drivetrain options.

1. Exterior

The CH-R will remind you of the Hyundai Veloster because of the C-pillar-mounted door handles on the rear. These handles nearly intersect with the sloping roof, making for the sporty and aggressive design, which Toyota calls “distinctive diamond.” Up front, the CH-R looks a lot like the RAV4. But thanks to the unconventional design of the bumpers, grilles, fog lights, air scoops, and angular panels, the CH-R can easily be set apart.

The funkiness and slightly rugged look of the CH-R continues at the back and finished with 18-inch alloy wheels and rear spoiler that protrudes over the liftgate’s glass.

2. Interior

What you’ll find inside is a refined and polished design for a crossover. The dashboard is made of matte and gloss finish while bits of chrome can be traced in the overall layout of the interior. There’s the 7-inch infotainment screen, the HVAC controls, the leather-wrapped, three-spoke steering wheel, and small driver information screen to complete the interior look.

3. Drivetrain

Under the hood, the CH-R is a typical Toyota. Its power will come from a 2.0-liter natural aspirated four-cylinder that can produce 144 horsepower and 140 pound-feet of torque. The oil pump must be given special recognition. It’s a coaxial two-port oil pump that allows for continuous oil pressure manipulation during different driving conditions.

4. Safety

Toyota packed the CH-R with a variety of safety features, which are normally available for higher-trim models but will not be standard to the crossover. The Toyota Safety Sense P includes Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection function, forward collision warning, Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist function, Automatic High Beams, and Full-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. Then, of course, there’s the usual full suite of airbags, seatbelts, rear seat child restraint LATCH points, crumple zones, and a passenger safety cell.

5. Price

There’s no pricing information yet for the CH-R, but prices are expected to be higher than the RAV4. It should start around $25,000.
