2020 Toyota C-HR Koba hybrid review

The hybrid version of Toyota’s distinctive compact SUV is a blend of practical perks and frustrating quirks that could make it untenable for some, but perfect for others.

2020 Toyota C-HR 2WD review

The Toyota C-HR, the Japanese brand's funky and style-driven take on the small-SUV segment, has received a midlife update. But how does that translate to the entry-level model?

2020 Toyota C-HR review

A fresh face and a new hybrid option signal update time for Toyota’s outrageously styled small SUV.

2018 Toyota C-HR review

REVIEW: 2020 Toyota C-HR 2WD

Things don’t get much simpler in the Toyota C-HR range than this entry-level model refreshed with a midlife update for 2020.

2020 Toyota C-HR Koba hybrid review

There’s little doubt the C-HR occupies a particularly competitive space in the market, with manufacturers seemingly magicking compact SUVs out of nowhere on an almost weekly basis.

2018 Hyundai Kona 1.6 Highlander AWD v Toyota C-HR Koba AWD comparison

See the full article here. Despite making a fashionably late arrival to the small crossover market, the 2018 Hyundai Kona has certainly made a grand entrance on appearances alone. Funky? You bet. Even against the hot sellers and mover’n’shakers – CX-3, ASX, XV, HR-V – largely responsible for skyrocketing the popularity of form and fashion over pure family-friendly functionality, the Kona appears, literally, to lob into trendy leading edge of style...

2017 Toyota C-HR Koba review

Read the full review here. I'll be the first to admit that I didn't want to like the 2017 Toyota C-HR. It looks like a small space ship, on paper it has an underwhelming engine and the pricing is ambitious. So, after spending hundreds of kilometres with the car in a variety of driving situations, has it won me over?

2020 Mazda CX-30 v Toyota C-HR comparison

Car manufacturers are engaged in a mad scramble to offer as many small, high-riding crossover hatchbacks as they possibly can in a bid to capitalise on market demand. Naturally, Australia’s two top-selling brands, Toyota and Mazda, are strong contenders. The former recently updated its unusual-looking C-HR by fitting a better touchscreen and adding a hybrid option, while the latter launched a whole new model called the CX-30...

2019 Suzuki Vitara Turbo v Toyota C-HR Koba comparison

You're looking at divergent ways to produce a small crossover SUV: the boxy and unpretentious Suzuki Vitara in updated Series II guise versus the uncompromising Toyota C-HR, with slinky silhouette and sleek body sculpting to make it as 'un-Toyota' as possible. Despite the different approaches from each Japanese brand, the target demographics are similar...

2018 Toyota C-HR v 1988 Toyota Corolla SR5 4WD Wagon comparison

Over time, we have forgotten the meaning of what an SUV is. Look up your average dictionary and it will tell you it’s a "rugged vehicle with a truck-like chassis and four-wheel drive, designed for occasional off-road use". Now put that description to the likes of the Suzuki Ignis, Mazda CX-3 or Nissan Juke...

Australia's most affordable hybrid and electric cars

The list of electric car and hybrid car options in Australia expands with every passing year, but their often prohibitive cost – particularly in the case of EVs – remains a major barrier to their uptake. Hybrid drivetrains are complex, while batteries for hybrid or electric cars are expensive to manufacture, which bumps up the price of hybrid and electric cars across the board...

Toyota releases Karl Lagerfeld edition of the C-HR

Toyota has released a limited-edition version of its C-HR city SUV, designed in partnership with the fashion house of late German designer Karl Lagerfeld. Lagerfeld, who headed up French fashion brand Chanel, passed away in February 2019, but his legacy lives on in the form of his eponymous brand, which has lent its name to a high-fashion version of the hybrid C-HR in Thailand...

Toyota GR Corolla, C-HR GR-Sport trademarks appear in Australia

Recent trademark applications made by Toyota suggest the brand could be planning Gazoo Racing versions of its Corolla and C-HR models for Australia. The three applications, lodged with Intellectual Property Australia (and noted on GR86.org), seek trademarks for the terms ‘GR Corolla’, ‘C-HR GR-Sport’ and ‘C-HR GR-S’...

Finally we can say "Oh what a feeling!"

My brother-in-law owns a 2008 TRD HiLux 4000SL, which acts as a regular reminder of Toyota Australia’s attempt more than a decade ago to tempt newer and younger customers to the brand. Or, as the company might as well have also said: to eradicate the disparaging “white goods on wheels” comments associated with its cars...

2017 Toyota C-HR Koba (2WD) review

Firstly, I want to get out of the way why I purchased this car. I wanted something that looked good, had good fuel economy, comfortable, and a good list of equipment and safety features. For my current job I needed an 'SUV' with a decent-sized boot, and as a 20-year-old single male, I didn't want anything too big, e.g. RAV4/CR-V...

2018 Toyota C-HR (2WD) review

So, my wife and I had been in the market looking for a new car for quite a while. She wanted an SUV, while I wanted something smaller. She won. I remember when the Toyota C-HR was released in Australia, I found the design extremely interesting. We took it for a test drive sometime in September and I really loved the way the car drove...

2018 Toyota CH-R Koba (2WD) review

I absolutely love this car. I'm so happy – it’s so comfortable, easy to drive, and looks awesome. I looked around a lot to see what I wanted. I looked at the Hyundai Kona and Mazda CX-3, but all the time I kept going back to the CH-R Koba. This car is so gorgeous to look at. The number of people who stop me and comment how much they love the look of my car is amazing...
