Toyota C-HR Safety

Is the 2021 Toyota C-HR a Safe Car?

The C-HR comes with class-leading safety technology. Besides the usual stability control, anti-lock brakes and front-side and side-curtain airbags, the C-HR’s standard equipment includes a drivers knee airbag, an under-cushion airbag on the front passenger side (which prevents submarining under a seat belt), forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian/cyclist detection, adaptive radar cruise control, lane-tracing assistance, lane departure warning with active steering assistance, and automatic high beams.   XLE and Limited trims add blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gave the C-HR a 5-star overall safety rating, along with five stars each for frontal and side-impact protection. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave it top crashworthiness and impact prevention scores, but a Poor rating for the headlights on the lower two trims.

2021 Toyota C-HR vs the competition

2021 Hyundai Kona — Thanks to its optional turbocharged engine and all-wheel drive system, the Kona is responsive, grippy and fun. It’s also slightly more practical than the C-HR. 2021 Honda HR-V — The HR-V is the cargo-carrying champ of this class. Not only does it have the most space, but its flipping/folding back seat brings the greatest versatility. Like the C-HR, the HR-V suffers from lethargic acceleration and a dull CVT, but at least all-wheel drive is on the options list. 2021 Subaru Crosstrek — Whereas the C-HR is solely front-wheel-drive, the Crosstrek comes standard with all-wheel drive. And it has much more ground clearance than the C-HR, plus a more rugged character. The result is a vehicle better suited to those intending to escape from the city. 2021 Kia Soul — If all-wheel drive isn’t a consideration, then the Soul is worth a look. Like the C-HR, it also has distinctive styling and a generous amount of features. But it’s roomier, less expensive and offers a turbocharged engine. 2021 Nissan Kicks — Like the C-HR, only the Toyota’s extrovert styling and constricted cabin are replaced by frumpy styling and a gigantic interior. The Kicks is cheaper, though.

Questions You May Ask

Does the 2021 Toyota C-HR offer all-wheel drive? No. The C-HR is driven solely by its front wheels, although it does have traction/stability control and anti-lock brakes that will help on slippery roads. Those seeking a subcompact SUV/crossover with all-wheel drive could check out the Honda HR-V, Mazda CX-3 or Jeep Renegade. Is the 2021 Toyota C-HR fast? In this segment, not many of the C-HR’s competitors are what we’d consider fast. The C-HR is a bit heavier than most and its 2.0-liter engine sometimes struggles with this heft. For more sprightly acceleration, a turbocharged Kia Soul or Hyundai Kona might be better. How roomy is the 2021 Toyota C-HR? For its subcompact size, the C-HR is pretty spacious. It can fit tall passengers in the front and back, although the thick rear upper door panels and high-mounted door handle create a substantial visual impediment right where a passenger’s face would be. The cargo area is about mid-pack in terms of volume, but the height of its floor is higher than most. The rear seats fold flat for more room, but they don’t recline if more comfort is desired.
