Toyota C-HR

The C-HR is a true Marmite car. It doesn't deliver a great driving experience in this hybrid form, and although the extra garnishes that come with this Limited Edition car are welcome, they don't add enough to justify this car's price tag. At just short of Β£30,000, we'd be more willing to spend our money on a well-specced Seat Ateca and pocket any change.

That said, if you're sold on the C-HR's looks – and it's easy to be – then you might be willing to forgive some of its foibles. In that case, we'd suggest going for the 1.2-litre petrol engine and teaming it with the entry-level Icon trim. You'll save a bundle compared to the range-topping car we've tested here, enjoy the more refined powertrain and still get most of the equipment you're going to want.

Decent to drive, generously equipped and the hybrid version makes a lot of sense as a company car. It's just a shame the Toyota C-HR isn’t cheaper to buy and bigger in the back.
