I got an XLE for $22,800 OTD, which is about what TruCar predicted (actually their price didn't include taxes so I guess the actual price for the car was about $21,300).
I suppose if I waited a few more weeks when the 2020's arrived I could have saved more but I'd be taking a chance the 2019 blue color C-HR's would be gone.
Also, my car had some extras like paint sealant, phone cables and premium Toyota care.

Thoughts after one week
New to this forum so I'll share my thoughts after one week:
Jury is still out on the outward visibility. So far it hasn't been an issue, probably because I'm not one of those drivers who looks over their right shoulder when turning right or changing lanes. I've always used the mirror and the blind spot warning helps a lot.
I should say that so far all of my dislikes are not deal breakers and I really like the car. But if these things still bother me after a year or two I may get something else.
And my MPG after one week of mostly highway driving (including stop and go traffic jams) is right around 30 MPG.

Sport mode doesn't change the overall slowness of the car. It does make the throttle response more sensitive which will give the impression there is more power. For those that want to add a Sport mode button, here's a video where someone actually has made a custom one:
And here is a video showing how slow our cars are even in Sport mode:

My RAV4 - even with a slightly bigger engine sucks at acceleration. I think that it is due to the 4-speed tranny (2010) .
* as for noise, the C-HR rides much quieter than my 2010 RAV4

|joe doe||so tried sport mode now .it is indeed more peppy .better throttle response for sure .only fail is you have to select it every time you want to use it .big fail on toyota`s part there .|

Yeah I mean it wasn't substantial by any means but my wife and I drove both on different days. I doubt something like altitude (7K above sea level) had anything to do with it, but the Toyota felt more responsive. We are Honda lovers so it was a disappointment but we also felt the road noise was also more prominent on the HR-V. Maybe psychological, maybe my wife just likes the look of the C-HR better lol.
Thanks for the feedback. I respect and appreciate your input.

|zx10guy||It's interesting you felt the C-HR is faster than the HR-V. All published numbers for the HR-V has been in the 8.6 second range to 60 MPH. The best number I've found for the C-HR to 60 is 10.5 seconds with many places saying the number is 11 seconds. That's quite a bit slower than the HR-V.|
