The Toyota C-HR Gives You What You Pay For

The Toyota C-HR isn’t winning any impressive awards or accolades this year. It isn’t the fastest, most capable SUV on the market, and it’s far from the most luxurious. But, at the end of the day, Toyota didn’t design the C-HR to be any of those things. In fact, the C-HR isn’t a bad car at all. It’s pretty much exactly what you pay for, no more, and no less.

Buying a new Toyota C-HR

There is some security that most people get when buying a car brand new. You get the full benefit of the original warranty without having to be overly concerned with repair costs. There is no reason to be concerned with how the car was previously treated or if it was well-maintained because you are the first owner. For some people, it is worth spending the extra money to get a car brand new, even if it means passing up on some cooler options that are used for the same price.

A sporty crossover

Appearance-wise, the 2020 Toyota C-HR is pretty sporty. In fact, it is a lot sportier than many of the other crossover options on the market. The split black roof gives the car a slick appearance. Paired with a surprisingly aggressive front end and an overall small appearance and it is an excellent option for drivers who want the practicality of an SUV without having to drive a big SUV. The interior isn’t very luxurious, but for the low price of the car, you wouldn’t really expect high-end materials and designs.

This crossover still has a lot to offer

You can buy a brand new Toyota C-HR for almost as low as $20,000 and even get the top-tier trim level for less than $30,000. It is far from the most expensive crossover on the market, but it won’t leave you disappointed. For the price, the C-HR is a pretty good bargain. As a family vehicle or daily driver, this crossover has all of the standard safety features you are looking for. Its comfortable interior offers a decent amount of passenger and cargo space, and it even has a responsible fuel economy.

RELATED: The New Toyota C-HR Really Shouldn’t Call Itself a Crossover

The 2020 Toyota C-HR isn’t the most jaw-dropping, innovative crossover on the market. According to Consumer Reports, you probably won’t find yourself too impressed with the car. For the price, it is still a great bargain, especially for a brand new crossover with as much to offer as it does.
