Reviews Are Pouring In

Toyota is finally letting journalists take a crack at the new C-HR and reviews are pouring in.

Here's a few I've found so far:

7inch screen and optional JBL stereo is something I look forward into hearing more about. I've been seeing a lot of infotainment issues these days and that would be a huge pet peeve for me. The audio system needs to be up to par as well as I'm a huge music junkie, especially when I drive. Hopefully when these start sprouting at dealers I can get a feel for it

It takes the C-HR 11 seconds to go from 0-62mph, that's a lot slower than I was expecting from the hybrid model. If nothing else, it's fuel efficient.

Didn't see that until you mention it. Maybe a more powerful variant will come out in the future. The power output and acceleration may not be the best, but the c-hr is expected to handle very well with very little body roll.

That's a long time to get up to highway speeds. If those are the numbers for the hybrid then I may as well take a look at the 1.2-litre model, but that's not going to be available in North america.

These articles basically gave away the fact that America will be getting the 2.0 since all these guys talked about the 1.2 and 1.8 and out of these 3 reviews that's all they got, no one had a 2.0.


Plus if you look at the American automotive landscape a 2.0 w/ CVT works perfectly.

Glad to hear that we're most likely getting a 2.0L option, don't think we'll be all that enthused with under-powered engines. We'll have to wait a while before 2.0 test vehicles makes its way across the pond for testing.

Autocar has reviewed the C-HR too and they think the chassis deserves a better powertrain. I do agree with them, but it'll be down to a test drive before purchase. Maybe it'll be adequate for my needs, but I'm hoping for a drive feel that matches the exterior.

Here's the chunk at the end that has their overall opinion.

Quote:
Should I buy one?
Assuming Toyota’s market research is correct and its customer base really isn’t too fussed about how their new car will actually drive, a creditable-handling but poor-performing derivative might actually be 50% over-engineered for their tastes.

But anyone who is interested in the driving experience and likes a true sense of completeness to their new car couldn’t really fail to be underwhelmed by the weedy, unengaging feel of the hybrid powerplant. With Toyota’s 1.2-litre petrol engine and a conventional manual gearbox, we’d expect the C-HR to be much better.

So we can't expect much from the automatic transmission and if we want performance on top of looks, we need to go manual? I'd all for going pure petrol for my power train, but I'm not a fan of manual gearboxes.
