The competition in the subcompact SUV market is intensifying as the demand for SUVs is superseding the demand for passenger cars. The Toyota C-HR is one of the popular as well as an affordable subcompact SUV that competes with the likes of Mazda CX-3 and Honda HR-V in the international market.
The 2018 Toyota C-HR has been positioned to deliver excellent handling and better fuel economy. Recently, Toyota has introduced the hybrid version of the 2018 Toyota C-HR to gain a lead over its rivals. The Toyota C-HR may not be as roomy as the Honda HR-V but it looks quite astonishing and the new model delivers fun and excitement that is on par with the Mazda CX-3’s driving experience.
The various trim levels of the 2018 Toyota C-HR are primarily designed for the European markets and this particular Toyota vehicle is not sold in the Dubai market. However, the Toyota C-HR is quite popular in Dubai’s used car market and a number of expats prefer to import the subcompact SUV to Dubai. It is worth noting the areas where the 2018 Toyota C-HR scores over its rivals.
The excellent handling compensates for the slow speed delivered by the 2-liter 4-cylinder engine. The precision steering of the 2018 Toyota C-HR has been thoroughly tested on the Nürburgring race tracks where other famous precision-oriented vehicles are put to the test.
Accurate suspension tuning within the 2018 Toyota C-HR ensure that the ride quality is not sacrificed while the SUV is being driven on an uneven surface. The engine gives out 144 hp and it is paired with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) system that provides a wider range of gear ratios.
The 2018 Toyota C-HR’s exterior design is the most compelling feature of the SUV. The vehicle’s impressive angles, curves, slits and crests clearly vouch for Toyota’s claim that the ‘C-HR’ stands for ‘Coupe, High Riding’. The startling visual appearance of the SUV gives it an appearance similar to a luxurious 2-door coupe.
The sloping roofline, the cat-eyed lamps, the side stampings and a taller rear end impart an angular appearance to the vehicle. Just like its exteriors, the Toyota C-HR’s interiors feature unconventionally shaped knobs, switches and touchscreen controls.
Clearly, the 2018 Toyota C-HR is for the customers who wish to enjoy a smooth ride in an unconventional and an affordable subcompact SUV.
