What used Toyota C-HR hatchback will I get for my budget?
Prices for a used Toyota C-HR start at around £12,500 for a 1.2 litre Icon manual. This will get you a good 2017 car with an average mileage for the year bought from an independent or franchised dealer.
The hybrid version is more expensive, and you’ll need to spend at least £15,000 to get into one of these. Thus should likewise buy you a 2017 car in excellent condition from a franchised dealer. Spend between £16,000 and £18,000 on a 2018 car, and between £18,000 and £20,000 on a 2019 model, and a little more for a 2020 updated car. Most used C-HRs are still in among the Toyota dealer network, which should mean that finding a good example is relatively easy.
How much does it cost to run a Toyota C-HR hatchback?
The lack of a diesel engine in the range might put off some family SUV buyers. But the normal turbocharged 1.2-litre petrol is quite efficient, with a combined average of 47.1mpg under the old NEDC tests. The hybrid version is even better, with a combined average of 74.3mpg under the NEDC tests, or 58.8mpg under the newer WLTP tests. The later 2.0 hybrid claims an official 54.3mpg under the later WLTP tests.
Annual road tax for any C-HR registered before April 2017 will work out at £135 per year for both the manual and automatic 1.2-litre petrols, while the hybrid is free. If you buy any model registered after this date, you’ll have to pay the flat-rate charge, currently £150.
Toyota servicing isn’t that costly and most of their dealers offer a flexible service plan for used cars that can be tailored to your individual needs, annual mileage and the period of time you require the plan for. There is even the option to spread the cost of your regular servicing via a monthly direct debit.
