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 I’m 47 and love the look of it and that’s why I got it!

I've only seen one Ch-r on the road here in Southern California and the driver was a older gentleman , the younger generation and I could be wrong here seem to lean more toward coupes , trucks or sportier cars and not so much SUVs or crossovers so I was really surprised to hear the Ch-r was particularly targeted for that demographic

I'm 44 and just bought the magnetic gray one a week ago and so far I love it!!! I'm into quirky cars too, I was getting ready to buy a Juke when i spotted one of these bad boys and had to have it instead

Hi everyone! I'm 47 and just got my magnetic gray one last week, and I love her!!! I have an affinity for quirky cars also, and this one grabbed my eye immediately. Glad I found it before I bought the Juke

A lot of reviewers are claiming the C-HR is appealing to a certain group of buyers, but it seems to be reaching past that and it's great.

Interesting, I live in Southern California and I commute from north orange county to Torrance daily for work. (owned my CHR since Mid May) I dont see one every day .. but i see them more often now.
Also, I am in my mid 30's and for me it works.. there are plenty of options in the C-hr price range and the "power" isn't it's most impressive feature so it would deter the younger people from the car. I personally have no issue with the c-hr's power... the balance and handling of it is pretty impressive. People tend to forget that all the other CUV's in the same price segment is about the same in horse power.
