2019 Toyota C-HR review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2019 Toyota C-HR?

Short for Coupe High-Rider, the Toyota C-HR is designed to be a stylish cross between a coupe and an SUV, but it’s more of a tall four-door hatchback with the look of a sporty two-door. Unlike other SUVs, the C-HR lacks the option of all-wheel drive (it’s front-drive only) and doesn’t offer much cargo space.

The five-seat C-HR has a 144-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and a continuously variable automatic transmission. Its fastback roofline and gaping lower grille lend an aggressive appearance, but competitors like the Honda HR-V, Jeep Renegade and Chevrolet Trax offer greater utility and available all-wheel drive.

What’s New on the 2019 Toyota C-HR?

An all-new model last year, the 2019 C-HR gets reshuffled trim levels for a total of three (LE, XLE and Limited), as well as a new standard 8-inch touchscreen multimedia system with Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity.

What Features in the 2019 Toyota C-HR Are Most Important?

All C-HR trim levels come standard with Toyota Safety Sense P, an extensive suite of active safety features that includes forward collision warning with pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning with steering assist, automatic high-beam headlights and full-speed adaptive cruise control. The XLE adds blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert. Other available features include push-button start, rain-sensing windshield wipers, heated front seats and leather upholstery.

Should I Buy the 2019 Toyota C-HR?

Beauty is in the eye of the car buyer, so we’ll leave that judgment to you. Suffice it to say that if you’re looking for something different, the C-HR certainly fits the bill. Its tidy dimensions contain a surprisingly roomy interior, and the hatchback design adds a measure of utility. Visibility is a problem, however, and the C-HR is missing some important features like Android Auto connectivity.

Just bought this 2019 from a dealership. At first I couldn't believe the mileage...170 miles...until the dealer explained it came out during the height of COVID and sat at dealership for 3yrs. This current dealership bought it at an auction with only 170 miles! Once they advertised, I jumped on it! I've always liked the style and the quality of Toyota cars. I had a sports car prior to thus and I can tell you there is a BIG difference in the cost of gas and mileage. It's sleek, roomy and I LOVED the colorit came in (Electric Blue). It was kind of pricey for a 2019 but it was definately in NEW condition!


Best car out there!

Absolutely love this car, it was bought as a surprise and I wasn’t too sure at a first look. Thought it would be a bit too small, but after my first drive I fell in love. It’s amazing. I get compliments left & right anywhere I go! It’s so spacious, & compact at the same time. Performs amazing, with & without sport mode. Also, the cherry on top, everyone gets jealous when I drop the bomb it only takes 44 to fill my whole tank. Gas mileage is heavenly!


Great Car!!

Love my Toyota C-HR. It's sporty but gets great gas mileage. It definitely gets notices. It has all the bells and whistles but very affordable!
