This is the new 2018 Toyota C-HR. It's a small crossover SUV-ish kind of thing that's sort of hard to categorize. Think of it as a MINI Countryman or a Nissan Juke, only it's a Toyota.

After driving the C-HR for a while, a few things really stand out:

First, it feels just powerful enough -- not super-quick, but with a sporty-enough disposition to be fun. The 4-cylinder engine makes 144 hp, and the C-HR is front-wheel-drive only.

Next, it's surprisingly quiet on the road. A little engine noise creeps in, but it really feels like a nicer car than the price would suggest.

The 2018 Toyota C-HR price starts at about $22,000. The one we tested is the XLE Premium, which is about $24,000.

But the interior is, again, surprisingly nice, with good-quality materials considering the price -- even this sparkly trim on the dash is kind of cool. I wish there was more color inside -- black is the only interior color available -- and the lack of Apple CarPlay is a miss for sure. Still, Toyota has an interface that allows streaming Bluetooth, Aha radio and other apps.

What's really amazing is that the C-HR comes with adaptive cruise control as standard equipment. Toyota's Safety Sense is also included. The XLE Premium even has power-folding outside mirrors and blind spot monitoring as well as rear cross-traffic alert

Finally, you can opt for this cool paint scheme. The bright-blue body with the white roof is called "Blue Eclipse Metallic R-Code," and the two-tone treatment adds $500.

The Toyota C-HR is for anyone who wants the stance of a small SUV but doesn't really need the off-road or all-weather ability. Add Toyota's reputation for reliability and good resale value, and we expect Toyota will have no trouble finding buyers.
