The Top Gear car review:Toyota C-HR
Running costs and reliability
Apparently, 43 per cent of those who bought the pre-facelift C-HR said that design was their number one reason for choosing it – and that’s only those who admitted as much.
It’s easy to see why Toyota has built the Orange Edition, then. It looks good with those 18-inch black wheels and the bi-tone black roof doesn’t it? If you wanted to secure one of the 500 it’d cost you £32,595. Ouch, although most will be used by dealers to draw customers in.
Another downside of losing the smaller engine and manual gearbox combo is that the C-HR’s entry price has now risen by over £3,000 – the cheapest is now the 1.8-litre in ‘Icon’ trim, which starts at £25,625 on the road and features 17-inch wheels with a non-contrast roof.
Next up the ladder is the ‘Design’ trim, before ‘Excel’ and ‘Dynamic’ share a very similar price level (over £31,000 for the 2.0-litre variants).
All trim levels get decent amounts of safety tech as standard. The Toyota Safety Sense system brings with it pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, lane departure alerts and road sign assist.
