SUVs and their Crossover Utility Vehicle (CUV) cousins are incredibly popular. In fact, SUVs and CUVS outsell sedans and coupes in the US. So, it’s not surprising that pretty much all automotive manufacturers offer at least a couple of SUV and CUV options.
That’s the problem though, there are plenty of options, but few live up to the hype. The all-new 2018 Toyota C-HR (Coupe High-Rider) is a unique vehicle that straddles the line between a CUV and a standard coupe-style car, but with four doors. Yes, it’s great to look at, but it’s also practical and can perform.
The first drive reviews of the Toyota C-HR are starting to come out and the feedback, so far, is incredibly positive.
The C-HR is different and that’s a good thing. Too many SUVs and CUVs look so much alike, it’s hard to tell them apart. The C-HR is anything but boring.
“C-HR’s exterior design is sporty and athletic, definitely the most youthful and assertive vehicle currently in the Toyota lineup. The designers emphasized diamond shapes as their inspiration.” - Forbes “Inside, things are jaunty, with interesting angles and planes. Asymmetry is celebrated in the center stack, and the material choices throughout the cabin are bold, yet tasteful. An electronic parking brake frees up center console space, allowing for a slender profile that helps keep the front seat foot boxes from feeling cramped.”
For a relatively small vehicle, the 2018 Toyota C-HR is noticeably spacious. If you’re looking for a good looking, practical vehicle the C-HR is a good choice. There’s enough room in the C-HR for trips to the grocery store with a small family or enough room to fit all your camping equipment for a weekend in the great outdoors. In comparison to its Honda and Nissan competitors, the C-HR is the more spacious vehicle.
“...our first impressions are that the C-HR’s front compartment is a tad more spacious and comfortable than those of the HR-V and the Juke.” - Car and Driver
The C-HR wasn’t designed to be a speed demon, but you can still have plenty of fun in it. The ride quality itself is impressive, especially for a smaller vehicle. The C-HR is where style and practicality meet performance and comfort.
“Pleasingly, the C-HR's ride quality never gets harsh when driving over rough pavement. The front seats are comfortable and supportive; they should hold up to long-distance driving duties just fine.” - Edmunds.com
Of course, these are just a few highlights of the 2018 Toyota C-HR chosen by a few experts in the automotive world. The real expert is you, so come down and take the all new C-HR for a spin and experience it for yourself.
