New Toyota C-HR Is A Well-Sorted Package…Mostly

If the only bad thing you can say about a car is that it has poor rear visibility, we reckon the rest of it must be pretty good.

Though is that really the case with Toyota’s funky-looking C-HR crossover? According to Carbuyer’s James Batchelor, it might as well be, since the only negatives he found were more in line with someone’s personal preferences.

He says that aside from the poor rear visibility, you might also feel a bit claustrophobic in the back, and children sitting there might hate having to look at a door panel instead of out the window.

As for the positives, to start off, you’ve got the funky design that many people seem to appreciate. Then you’ve got the fairly high-quality cabin, plenty of space in the back, a decent-sized boot, good driving dynamics and a punchy 1.2-liter petrol engine that Bachelor appeared to enjoy.

In the end, while cars like the C-HR, or the Juke, for that matter, aren’t for everybody, their youthful / unique designs end up boosting sales.

    To my eyes – that’s one butt-ugly car.

    • Six_Tymes

      I agree. when i first saw the concept I flipped, now its no way would i buy it. maybe the next gen of this will look better.

    Can’t wait for it to come to Indonesia. If it comes, I’ll be ready to write my cheque. 🙂

    Saw this at the Nails Show and it does look good. But I wished Toyota had given it a more vertical back.

  • Major Lee Gassole

    Not my cup o’ tea, but it’s SO much better looking than the frog… I mean Joke… I mean Juke.

  • Ero-Senpai

    I like the car but it is a shame that it is not family-friendly. The back seats do look quite claustrophobic!

  • fabri99

    I love the way this looks. Finally a Toyota that doesn’t look like… meh.

  • KidRed

    You can also say it’s extremely hideous. Which, to me, is a deal breaker.

  • Wandering_Spirit

    To be honest i’d buy one any day. I like the design. If it drives as good as it looks to me it would be a good choice. Except they don’t have a good choice of engines and i don’t like electric engines.
