We tested the GR Sport version of thenew Toyota C-HR Hybrid 184 hp model year 2021. Compared to the GR Sport version, the Edition version has less the two-tone bodywork, the central reversing light and the front and rear LED lights, 18-inch wheels only, a different body and interior fittings, fog lights, blind spot warning, traffic warning, keyless start system. The upholstery is only in fabric. Lumbar adjustment is absent and there are no heated seats. The price is €34,000.

For the rest, the C-HR is an urban SUV with suggestive lines and dynamic road behavior. Its new 184 hp engine with torque available from low revs makes it a pleasure to drive, but any sporting desire will be hampered by an e-CVT transmission that smoothes out the engine’s behavior. It’s a shame, especially since the trunk volume is only 358 litres. Unfortunately, the infotainment system is aging too. The C-HR does make up for it in terms of range, though, with an average fuel consumption of 5.5 liters over a combined cycle.
