Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Toyota C-HR hatchback?
The C-HR's rather small rear window, thick roof pillars and high rear windowline are enough to hide a bus in your over-the-shoulder view. It makes the standard fit parking sensors and reversing camera necessary. Even so, check for parking damage to the car's bumpers.
There aren’t any crazy oversized alloy wheel options on the C-HR, so this will help prevent kerb damage, but make sure there aren’t any blemishes to the wheels on Dynamic cars, whose wheels have a machine-polished finish. If this lacquer has been marred and the metal is exposed to road salt, corrosion can set in.
Is a used Toyota C-HR hatchback reliable?
The C-HR didn't feature in our most recent reliability survey, but it did in the one before. It finished 10th out of 21 cars in the family SUV section. Toyota as a brand did very well overall, finishing third out of 31 manufacturers, which should give you some peace of mind. Toyota even backs up this strong record for reliability by providing every new car it makes with a five-year, 100,000-mile warranty. This means that even the oldest C-HRs will still have plenty of warranty cover left.
