New owner from Montreal, Canada

So finally bought the C-HR premium edition yesterday (but won't get it for another 2-3 weeks). Canadian dealers aren't allowed to deliver them before May 5th the dealer told me. Was impressed the value for the money and its awesome look. My first ever Toyota as well.

Still debating the color choice, choose the magnetic metallic grey metallic but love the blue eclipse metallic. Just gotta decide fast on my color choice since dealers don't even get to choose what colors they are getting. I was told if you choose a color they don't have they have to trade with another dealer to get it and since the car is in slim pickings they are hard to find. Only thing missing on the Canadian edition are the fog lights which aren't available her yet?! (Toyota brochure states that they are still in devolpment even though I noticed the US version of the Premium gets it of the lot) weird...

Wonder how the reliability will be with the car since it is produced in Turkey! Dealer rep said that it is mosty assembled by robot so there shouldn't be any quality issues.

Can't wait to get it and exchange with fellow members!

I'm driving my C-HR for a week and I can say it's a very nice car.
The engine feels very smooth and the chassis is also very good, so it's sporty to drive.
The only thing you hear while driving are the tires, so he's very quiet.(Except with full acceleration, then you will hear the CVT)
Also the multimedia system sounds very good.(6 speaker system)

So, I am a very happy owner. I hope you will be.

Welcome to the forum! Reliability shouldn't be a problem since it is ultimately a Toyota and they're known for chugging along even years later.

As for the paint color, yea that's the hard part when the C-HR looks good in anything. I'm still stuck on that conundrum too.

Glad to hear that.

Have you taken it on some twisty roads yet? Coming from some sporty cars i'm hoping the CH-R has at least some of that going on with respect to what it can/should do.

Yes, then you put de car in Sport Mode. The trottle response is then much better(more revs by simulair speed) and the steering also feels much more firm. Also he has not much bodyroll so the handling is very good.

BTW, i also come from a sporty car with track suspention and a much powerfull engine, but I do not want to return.
