Mind you, thanks to its low CO2 emissions, the C-HR is cheaper to run as a company car than the majority of its rivals. If you want to spend significantly less in benefit-in-kind (BIK) tax, you'll need to consider a fully electric alternative, such as the Kia e-Niro.
You get lots of kit with the Excel and GR Sport but they are very pricey, and you could have a decent Volvo XC40 for the money they cost.
Toyota finished third (out of 31 manufacturers) in the What Car? Reliability Survey and the C-HR proved to be one of the more dependable family SUVs in the survey.
All models come with a five-year/100,000-mile basic warranty as standard, bettered only by the seven-year warranty offered by Kia on the rival Sportage.
The complex batteries and electric motors might ring alarm bells in your head, but Toyota has been perfecting the technology for more than a decade in the Prius, so there’s no reason to expect any glitches. Plus, if you go for the annual Hybrid Electric Service, the hybrid battery warranty can be extended for up to 15 years.
