Hi guys

as some of you may know, I have a corolla but have had issues and my dealer wonting to please me wants me to try the C-HR. What's good about this car or is it a mixed bag and give it a miss. Where is it manufactured? 

Any help here would be much appreciated 

sad because the corolla is an excellent drive. Do you think the C-HR will be as good?

I had a new Corolla Excel Sports Tourer from 2019 and have now changed to the C-HR. Changed like for like i.e 2 litre but instead of the Excel have the GR Sport C-HR.

Diferences after 2 months, SUV so easy access for me with a dodgy knee, Boot capacity smaller(of course) C-HR Quieter C-HR is more stylish to me anyway. Usually only me in the car so the rear seats and legroom do not come into the equation. Enjoy the higher visability (previously had four Ford Kugas. Fuel consumption appears to be better n the C-HR, even thought he drive train is similar. Have not looked at the price of the current Corollas so cannot comment. Personally I prefer the C-HR.

Just go & get the updated 2023 model year Lexus UX.

You didn't like the Corolla so you won't like the C-HR either.

C-HR is built in Turkey.

UX is built in Japan.

We have upgraded from a Corolla Design 2.0 hatchback with a panoramic roof which we enjoyed driving. And we now have a C-HR GR SPORT 2.0 which we enjoyed even more than the Corolla because of the higher driving position and its to get in and out. We did look at the Lexus UX and we took one out for a long test drive and we found the drive disappointing as there was a lot of road noise from the run flat tyres and the boot space is about the same as the Corolla and C-HR with the same running gear as Corolla and the C-HR.

And the servicing was alot more on Lexus UX than Corolla and the Chr.

The wife loves driving our Chr.

I've heard of the C-HR being described as a "Marmite" car. Either you love it or you hate it.

Personally I love it. To me it's stylish, and easy to drive. It all depends on what you want out of a car

Lexus have made some updates / upgrades on the UX for the 2023 model year.

Yes the C-HR is bit like Marmite. But the service cost is lower than Lexus ux which is the same car with a different body.

Toyota C-HR 10,000 miles £190

Toyota C-HR 20,000 miles £340

Lexus  UX 10,000 miles £270

Lexus UX 20,000 miles  £455

I like the C-HR, I'd actually own one for a daily driver. May have to put in a test drive request maybe. I'm looking for another car so my Compressor can rest, but mainly been looking at saloons (even German Saloons :shocking:) Used car market is unfortunately a bit of a joke with high mileage and high priced cars.

We progressed through Yaris; Auris estate; CH-R and now Rav 4; all hybrids. The CH-R was a delight and better than the two predecessors but try a Rav before you buy the CH-R.

It is just a brilliant all rounder, with best access for oldies and brilliant economy round towns and short trips although slightly more expensive on motorway runs. The ride is much better than the other three. All round visibility is better too. You can see all the corners of the car...which you can't in the CH-R.

Had my C-HR for 2 years 6 months now. bought it when it was 2 years old. My concern was build quality coming out of Turkey, but can honestly say it’s very good in comparison to MK4 Yaris.

It’s a great car. Rear occupancy is a little restricted though and those higher rear door windows make it feel claustrophobic.
 

Regarding the Lexus UX - I thought the drive was awful tbh. As mentioned, those run flat tyres make the interior feel like constant white noise in your ears during your journey. Cabin was cramped and the audio pad……..the less about that, the better.
23my has new touch screen ICE system, so that’s better. No mention of run flat tyres being replaced though. New dash looks just like C-HR imo.

I love Lexus cars, but just cannot justify all the extra costs that come with it - just for a nameplate. The C-HR is equal to it - if not better AND cheaper to run.

I had a 2L Design C-HR for a couple of years, I loved the car - it was comfortable, quiet and great for 2 or 4 if my (much shorter) daughter was driving. Yes the rear is a bit cramped and the boot not the largest but it was economical, handled really well and I personally loved the fact that it looked nothing like the car that boring old me was driving. I only changed to a Rav4 as I needed more adjustment in the seat after an accident plus more room in the back for my MIL. It's noisier, less economical but roomies and I don't regret the change.

I have a C-HR (for the moment) and have loved every minute of it. Only changing as I want a smaller car...we have a large 4x4 for our longer trips and carrying etc.

Mine's a 2019 Excel so has the spec I needed safety wise. It's a 1.8 so is underpowered for some of my journey, but more comfortable and quieter than our BMW for other parts. I couldn't imagine it as a family car as the back is dark and those high window lines wouldn't be ideal for passengers, but as a car for one or two in the front we love it. 

In some areas a better car than our other; superb economy and reliability and the shape is still fresh I.e. no major changes...yet, I believe a newer body shape for 2023+?

One of the few cars I've got attached to. My others were my MR2 😭 huge mistake when I pxd it for a Skoda Citigo, my Seat Leon Mk1 and  my Aygo X clusiv...loved that little car.

In terms of marmite I sometimes have a tiny bit mixed in butter on toast as it's a fab taste. That's the only time I eat marmite btw 🙂

Like Chris I had the Corolla excel and bought the GR. Love the car, fuel consumption is better than the Corolla. It is more comfortable to drive and quieter, and easy access getting in and out.

I don’t find the rear appealing and those bulbous wheel arches. Still it’s a good job we have all different tastes as Toyota wouldn’t sell all those different types.

I love the look of the rear. As you say, its a good job we all have different tastes, Keeps Toyota (and other companies) in business
