Toyota C-HR: Call it the quirky crossover

Cars
So, you've always wanted a Nissan Juke, but maybe you're a little afraid of its way-out-there design. Well, let me introduce you to your new best friend. It's a Toyota C-HR. Now we first saw this as a concept model last year, but its coming back with a vengeance in production for 2018. The lines on this C-HR are super aggressive. I got some flared fenders and a really interesting rear fascia. Kinda represents a Big departure from the design language that's normally seen on Toyota's. Now I do hope that this trickles down to some of the other models, but probably not. Under the hood you get a two liter four cylinder engine, it's only good for 144 horsepower and 139 pound feet of torque and it's made it to a CVT and continuously variable transmission. Now Toyota did a lot of lip service about how they wanted this to be sporty and fun to drive and they tested it on the Nuremberg ring but it's still just front wheel drive. I can't get it in all-wheel drive, I've got kind of an underpowered engine and no manual. What gives Toyota? Make it fun! Still there is a sport mode which is gonna give you a better throttle response and make your steering just a little bit heavier. And if you want to, you can shift your CVT manually through the paddle shifters. But I just doubt that this is gonna be as much fun to drive as my little Juke. CCHR will be available in two trend lines and both of those will be standard with Honda Safety Sense which includes adaptive cruise control. No word on pricing yet, but I would think this would slot somewhere below Toyota's RAV4, and we should see it in dealers next spring.
