2020 Toyota C-HR review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2020 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 2020 Toyota C-HR?

The C-HR gets new front-end styling and the base LE trim level now has LED headlights. Android Auto smartphone connectivity is now standard, and the top-of-the-line Limited trim now has an eight-way power driver’s seat and adaptive headlights.

What Features in the 2020 Toyota C-HR Are Most Important?

All C-HR trims 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 mid-level XLE adds blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert. Other available features include push-button start, heated front seats and leather upholstery.

Should I Buy the 2020 Toyota C-HR?

Beauty is in the eye of the car buyer, so we’ll leave that judgment to you. Suffice it to say, if you’re looking for something a little 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. Rear visibility is a problem, however, and the C-HR’s lack of all-wheel drive won’t sit well with some shoppers.

Under estimated. Great value.

One of the best vehicles I have owned. I own a 2019 xle and the ride and comfort is superb. Ease of accessibility getting in and out. Ease of parking and just the right road height and size. To date no issues. Acceleration is just right. Yes not overly quick, but serves the purpose. Truly love this vehicle.
