2018 Toyota C-HR

With city lights catching off the 2018 Toyota C-HR’s boldly athletic body and the engine thrumming evocatively, you’d be forgiven for thinking mpg ratings might suffer. A performance-focused and sport-styled compact crossover might not be the first place you’d look for compelling efficiency scores, but the all-new Toyota C-HR has leveraged sophisticated engineering and technology to go further than you’d ever expect on each tank of gas, so we’re sure you’ll appreciate the 2018 Toyota C-HR mpg ratings.


The 2018 Toyota C-HR’s unlikely blend of spirited drive and high efficiency scores owes much to a state-of-the-art powertrain. A 2.0L 4-cylinder engine gets up to 144 hp and 139 lb-ft of torque, but the vehicle still makes up to 27 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway thanks to a sophisticated continuously variable transmission with intelligence and shift mode (CVTi-S).

Leave your CVTi-S system in D to have it refine your power automatically, with the forward-thinking pulley system ensuring that you’re always operating in the optimal efficiency range. If you suddenly feel like taking direct control, just slip into sequential shiftmatic mode to shift manually between seven virtual gears.


It’s hard to ignore the Toyota C-HR’s alluring body. Precision-cut styling provides a modern and streamlined look, with a cantilevered rear spoiler and integrated door handles boosting the vehicle’s aerodynamic profile for improved performance and efficiency. You’ll be kept at a perfect balance between those two demands as standard, and you can always slip into Eco Mode to prioritize fuel economy or enter Sport+ Mode when you want to feel every corner or pass swiftly on the highway.

Whether you’re heading from Elmhurst into the center of Chicago or taking your friends on a cross-country journey from Aurora to California, SACHS dampers and all-new double-wishbone suspension – both tested on Germany’s famous Nürburgring – will help supply exact handling and a comfortable ride.

The 2018 Toyota C-HR is Something You Need to Experience for Yourself
