What is avg age of a Ch-r owner in the U.S.?

I've read that the Ch-r is targeted to a "younger generation" of car buyers here in the U.S. and since most aren't interested in purchasing a hybrid there is a reluctance to bring the hybrid version to the states.. I'm 50 yrs old and ABSOLUTELY love the look of the Ch-r and would happily trade my Prius in today for a hybrid version of the ch-r but because of my long daily commute to work and the price of gas in Calif. financially it would put me at a disadvantage to drive anything but a hybrid at this time!

I'm 57.
It was time for a change and I love quirky cars. I actually had my head set on a Kia Soul Turbo but there was one small quirk that kept me from buying it .... they don't have the orange one available in the US! I kept waiting to see if/when it would be available and ran across an article about Toyota's answer to the Juke (another contender). As soon as I saw it, I loved it. My first thought was ... now that's quirky as ****!

Like you I also have an affinity for "quirky" cars and you'll think since the U.S. is such a large market car makers would provide every trim available for each car made but then again I'm only a "car buyer" so what do I know???

Soon to be 57 and male... Not sure why I like it so much, but I love this freaking thing...I'm unquestionably a geek. Perhaps "Quirky" is the proper reason?

I have it narrowed down to the silver or the white one once I decide to buy .. can ask what color you settled on and btw congrats on the purchase!

Great color choice but because I live in an area with strong winds and lots of dust blowing I'm compelled to buy a color like the silver one that tends to not show as much dirt!

Paint protection of some kind is your best bet since that will make clean up very easy. It makes a big difference and can save you a lot of money from paint repairs.

Whenever i rent to the Toyota C-HR Launch event (even though the car had already launched a couple of weeks prior) the Toyota Canada office rep told me that up to now the car is catering to an older clientele than actually they had targeted to car to. He said a lot of 40-50 year olds were buying this car even though it was more for the millenials.

Anyways Iím 47 and love the look of it and thatís why I got it!
