Our view

It may be late to the compact crossover party, but the C-HR has certainly made a spectacular entrance. With its riot of angles and creases, the C-HR certainly makes a head-turning statement.

Toyota will have no worries about sliding diesel sales where its new crossover is concerned, because you can’t have a diesel in the C-HR. The choice is between the 1.2-litre turbo petrol engine or the 1.8-litre petrol-electric hybrid.

The C-HR comes in a choice of three specifications, all of which offer good levels of equipment. The cabin feels airy and spacious, thanks to a combination of excellent design and top-notch quality.

The C-HR handles very well and certainly belies its high-riding crossover stance. Ride comfort is exemplary, soaking up the bumps on poor condition surfaces and damping them out of the cabin. Officially the car returns 72mpg, but hovering close to 60mpg in real-world motoring is still impressive.

This is a crossover that exudes style amongst many more ordinary-looking rivals, and it also ticks the boxes of quality and (mostly) practicality.

The performance of the Toyota C-HR does not quite live up to its looks, but it scores highly for style, quality, equipment and road manners.
