This little subcompact crossover has so many curves and angles, it's like driving a hexagonal basketball.

It's not bad, it's just... a lot.

Under the hood is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine pushing out 144 horsepower and 139 pound-feet of torque.

The engine is mated to a continuously variable transmission, sending power to the front wheels only. No all-wheel drive here, folks.

The rear door handles are incorporated into the C-pillar for added personality.

The C-HR gets an EPA fuel rating of 29 miles per gallon combined, but that falls below the Nissan Kicks, Hyundai Venue, Honda HR-V and Mazda CX-3.
