2022 Toyota C-HR vs. Its Competition

2022 Toyota C-HR
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

Without all-wheel drive, the Toyota C-HR vies for sunbelt attention with a few rivals that can better handle wintry weather.

The Hyundai Kona is a standout for its wild looks and excellent value, and it comes in an electric version.

The Honda HR-V is a perennial favorite for its versatile interior and decent driving dynamics.

The Nissan Kicks isn’t as outrageously shaped as the C-HR, but performance lags just the same.

The larger Subaru Crosstrek is a screaming deal, but those in sunny places could probably do without its standard all-wheel drive.

The Mazda CX-30 isn’t as spacious as competitors, but it’s fun to drive.
