Toyota C-HR

(2016 – present)

The Toyota C-HR is a medium-sized SUV/crosover, which was launched onto the UK market in 2016 and quickly became one of the brand’s most popular models. A mildly updated model is due to reach UK roads before the end of 2019.

The C-HR has received broadly positive reviews from the UK motoring media, with an overall Expert Rating score that puts it near the top of the heap in a very competitive field of rivals.

The Toyota C-HR has received particular praise for its distinctive styling, driving dynamics and hybrid option. However, it has been criticised for being somewhat compromised on space and visibility as as result of the swoopy styling.
