Introduced in 2018, the C-HR was Toyota’s first foray into Canada’s lucrative subcompact crossover segment. It’s not without its quirks: coupe-like styling means it’s not a particularly practical family vehicle, and yet the C-HR’s modest performance is out of step with its extroverted looks.
What’s New/Key Changes From Last Year
The Toyota C-HR is unchanged for 2022.
This year, Toyota offers the C-HR in LE, XLE Premium, and Limited trims. All are powered by a 2.0L engine and continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) whose power goes only to the front wheels.
C-HR’s LE package comes with an 8.0-inch touchscreen, six-speaker audio, dual-zone A/C, LED headlights, and 17-inch steel wheels with covers.
Safety features included at the entry level are radar cruise control, forward collision mitigation, lane tracing assist, lane departure alert, and automatic high beams.
XLE Premium adds blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, passive keyless entry, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, 18-inch alloy wheels, and power-folding side mirrors.
Limited brings a power driver’s seat, leather upholstery, ambient lighting, fog lights, and adaptive headlights.
Toyota’s fuel consumption estimates for the C-HR are 8.7/7.5 L/100 km (city/highway).
With its FWD-only layout, consider the C-HR a competitor for entry-level versions of the Chevrolet Trailblazer, Nissan Qashqai, Hyundai Kona, Ford EcoSport, Kia Seltos, Jeep Renegade, Fiat 500X, Mitsubishi RVR, and Honda HR-V. You might also consider it against the AWD-only Subaru Crosstrek, and the FWD-only Hyundai Venue and Nissan Kicks.
