New for 2019

The 2019 Toyota C-HR is now offered in three grades and gets the Entune 3.0 interface with Apple CarPlay integration. Blue Flame replaces Radiant Green Mica on the C-HR's exterior color palette and a black roof option is now available with four exterior colors for an extra charge.

Trim Levels (Interior and Exterior Options)

The 2019 Toyota C-HR is a subcompact crossover that slots below the compact RAV4 and is the entry-level model to Toyota's utility vehicle lineup. Unlike most crossovers, the C-HR comes only in front-wheel drive. Three trims are now offered as opposed to a single well-equipped one from the previous model year.

LE: The base LE grade come standard with 17-inch steel wheels, dual-zone climate control, a 4.2-inch instrument cluster display, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, cloth upholstery, keyless entry, Toyota's Entune 3.0 interface with an 8.0-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth, a USB port, a rearview camera, a six-speaker audio system, and Apple CarPlay integration.

XLE: Mid-grade XLE models add a leather-wrapped steering wheel, 18-inch alloy wheels, push-button start and heated power-folding side mirrors.

Limited: Range-topping Limited variants come with LED fog lights, rain-sensing wipers, leather upholstery, heated front seats, and a power-adjustable driver's seat.

Navigation is available only on the Limited as part of an optional package.

Performance and Fuel Economy

All 2019 Toyota C-HR models are powered by a 2.0-liter I-4 with 144 hp and 139 lb-ft of torque. A CVT is the only transmission offered, and EPA fuel economy ratings are 27/31 mpg city/highway.

Safety

The 2019 Toyota C-HR received a five-star overall rating from the NHTSA (out of a possible five stars). The IIHS rated the 2019 C-HR Good in all categories except the headlights test where it got a Poor rating (Good is the highest possible score).

On the front crash prevention test, the C-HR received a Superior rating after it avoided collisions in 12- and a 25-mph tests (Superior is the highest rating for the front crash prevention test). The Toyota Safety Sense P active safety suite is standard on all trims and comes with automatic high beams, adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, and lane departure warning with steering assist. Blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert are standard on the XLE and Limited grades.

Utility

With all seats in place, the 2019 Toyota C-HR has 19.0 cubic feet of cargo space. Fold the rear seatbacks and that expands to 36.4 cubic feet, which is on the small side even for the subcompact crossover segment.

What We Think

In a 2018 First Drive, we said that the C-HR's weight and lack of power meant its acceleration is languid, especially on the highway. The steering is quick but has a dead spot that makes it hard to drive smoothly, especially when taking turns. Even in its base form, the C-HR has a long standard equipment list, which improves its value proposition. The C-HR's interior highlights its lack of practicality; cargo capacity is one of the smallest in its segment, as we noted in a 2019 First Test. Toyota's Entune 3.0 interface is an improvement versus the aftermarket-looking unit from the 2018 model but it's slow to respond whether you're using the physical buttons or the 8.0-inch touchscreen.

At the 2017 Motor Trend SUV of the Year evaluations, the Toyota C-HR's interesting styling and agile handling drew positive comments. However, its claustrophobic rear seats were derided along with its high-mounted rear door handles.

Cool Fact

Toyota manufactures C-HRs sold in Europe at its plant in Turkey.
