The C-HR has yet to be appraised by the safety experts at Euro NCAP, so we can’t tell you how well it’s likely to protect you in an accident compared with rival small SUVs.
However, all versions of the C-HR come with lots of safety kit, including a pre-collision system that can automatically apply the brakes to stop you running into the car in front. It can even recognise pedestrians.
You also get lane departure warning and automatic high-beam assist for the headlights, and the speed limit of the road you’re driving down is conveniently displayed on the touchscreen. Blind-spot monitoring and rear cross traffic alert – the latter warns you of approaching cars when you’re backing out of a driveway onto a road – is also standard on Excel and Dynamic trims, and optional on entry-level Icon.
