Central Valley - California - Checking In

Hello folks - I was about to buy a Subaru Crosstrek, but Comcast put a mark on my Transunion and it was taking weeks to clear it. During that time, I stopped by the local Toyota, test drove the Prius C, and decided to see the C-HR.

Apparently they used Experian and gave me a 0% APR... The next day I was back and signed the paperwork. As much as I'd love the Crosstrek, I figured throwing 2k into car features is a lot more preferable than 2k to bank.

Current project:
Tint the windows (torn between the pricey 3M or something cheaper)
Install Blacksys 200 dashcam

2018 Toyota C-HR XLE Premium Magnetic Gray
Current: Blacksys CH200 Dashcam, Solargard UP Tint, LED Interior, OPT7 Color-Smart LED Strip Interior Footwell Lighting

Want: HID Headlight, LED Foglight, Android Auto HUD, Solar Sunshade

Welcome to the forum! What features did you end up going for in your C-HR?

Thanks for the warm welcome.

I ended up with the Premium trim, and it came with the crossbar, mudflap, all weather floor liner. Just missing the cargo liner and it's coming in the mail.

Glad to have a real owner on the forum, but did you by any chance compare the CH-R to its rivals by driving them? Always interested in that point of view since getting behind the wheel of various products deepens your perspective.

Thanks. I did test drive the Crosstrek as a comparison. I didn't even consider the Mazda one though.

To me, the Crosstrek was more responsive in acceleration and feels that it grips the road better. The Toyota is overall more plush and comfortable inside though.

Wow that's dark! I went with 60 all around. Mostly for the UV and IR block.
