2019 Toyota C-HR Driving Impressions

The C-HR may look zippy, but its powertrain delivers just modest acceleration, even in Sport mode. There are three drive modes: the fuel-efficient Eco, Normal, and Sport, which firms up the steering and programs the CVT with seven simulated gear ratios.

Handling and roadholding are significantly sportier than the powertrain. Engineers gave the C-HR front struts with Sachs dampers and a beefy front stabilizer bar, and an independent rear suspension with double wishbones. The ride is smooth.

The C-HR can be fun to corner with spirit, as it feels secure and well-planted. The steering is neither light nor numb like small cars of the past.
