There are certainly cheaper and more practical alternatives, but the Toyota C-HR is comfortable, easy to drive, super-frugal and should prove very reliable. If you love the looks and space isn't a priority, it's unlikely to disappoint. We reckon the 1.8 Hybrid in Design trim represents the best value for money, while the highest trim levels and the plug-in hybrid version are more difficult to recommend.

Comes with loads of creature comforts as standard, but pushes the C-HR's price into the territory of altogether bigger and better SUVs. We reckon the cheaper trims make more sense.

The 1.8-litre is our pick. It’s no speed demon, managing 0-62mph in 10.2sec, but it’ll get you up to motorway speeds without too much fuss, plus it keeps the price respectable.
