While they say you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, the exterior design of the 2021 Toyota C-HR definitely makes an incredibly strong first impression. A short hood houses a low, honeycomb-style grille, while the LED headlamps wrap around the front of the C-HR and end right above the flared wheel wells. A contoured line then runs along the side of this compact crossover, past the uniquely positioned rear door handle, into the taillights sitting below the rear window and spoiler. A range of exciting paint options and two-tone combinations add to the visual appeal of this one-of-a-kind Toyota SUV.
Inside, the 2021 Toyota C-HR continues to assert its stylistic dominance, thanks to a highly-refined interior layout and quality materials. XLE Premium and Limited models come standard with heated front seats, while the Limited trim is decked out with supple leather. A 60/40-split rear back seat adds utility to this crossover SUV, while the standard 8.0-inch touchscreen sits above a beautiful piano black interior trim detail offering both style and substance in equal measure. New for 2021, the Nightshade Edition adds a dark and mysterious vibe to the C-HR, thanks to a black roof, door handles, 18-inch alloy wheels, and a front chin spoiler.

The 2021 Toyota C-HR adds spirited performance to its outstanding list of qualities, thanks to an energetic 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder VALVEMATIC engine capable of producing 144 horsepower—more than enough to allow this compact crossover to zip forward and weave through dense traffic. Matched to Toyota’s Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) with Intelligence and Shift Mode, and featuring Vehicle Stability Control, the C-HR provides exceptionally smooth acceleration to go along with its smooth handling. The C-HR’s CVT also provides exceptional fuel economy, with this diminutive Toyota SUV providing big savings thanks to an estimated fuel efficiency rating of 8.7 L/100 km in the city—and a mere 7.5 L/100 km while out on the highway. All that results in an SUV that doesn’t just look sporty, it delivers on that promise.
