2018 Toyota CHR In Depth Review18:38

Can Toyota Win The Millennial Vote with the 2018 Toyota CHR?

Let me be the first one to say that I LOVE weird-looking cars.  One of my favorite car of all time is the Ford Pinto.  I am absolutely serious about that.  Oh yeah, I really like the Gremlin too.

Enter…the 2018 Toyota CH-R

I didn’t know what to think of the 2018 Toyota CH-R when I first saw it.  Is it a car?  SUV?  It’s looks kind of coupe-ish.  I honestly think it could be one of the best looking vehicles on the road today.  It has funky, sharp lines down the doors.  Tiny windows in the back doors make for a taller looking door.  And that back.  I am especially fond of the rear tail lights and how the wrap around the rear corners.  It’s almost as if the tail lights were placed on top of yet inside the corners of the CH-R.

Did you see all the diamond shapes on and in the CH-R?  What’s the significance of the diamond shape?

What do you think about the design of the Toyota CH-R?  Do you like it, love it, hate it?  I would love to hear your thoughts!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope this helps you #enjoyyourride.



C-HR stands for Coupe High Rider and seeks to stand out from a typical boxy-shaped small suv by incorporating a raked roof line, four doors and raised belt line.

The C-HR is built on the Toyota New Global Architecture platform, the same one the new Prius rides on. It gets a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder DOHC engine mated to Toyota’s new CVTi-S continuously variable automatic transmission that simulates seven gears. That transmission has been tweaked to reduce interior noise and achieve greater fuel efficiency. The engine makes 144 hp and 139 lb-ft of torque, and it gets an EPA estimated 27 mpg city, 31 mpg highway and 29 mpg combined.

2018 Toyota C-HR XLE will run $22,500 plus $960 delivery. The XLE Premium, which nets upgrades like heated seats, lane departure warning and folding mirrors, will cost $24,350 plus $960 delivery. The C-HR, in all trims, comes standard with Toyota’s Safety Sense P system that includes pre-collision, active braking, pedestrian detection and lane departure alert with steering assist. The C-HR also includes radar-based dynamic cruise control.
