2019 Toyota C-HR Interior Review

Scorecard

Interior: 5.2

The 2019 Toyota C-HR has some soft-touch surfaces, but reviewers dislike the cabin’s blasé styling. This subcompact SUV is also limited on room for rear-seat passengers and cargo. For 2019, the C-HR comes standard with Apple CarPlay, and it offers navigation and satellite radio, none of which were available for 2018.

  • "The C-HR's interior is reasonably attractive thanks to a rather simple layout." -- Edmunds
  • Although the interior features numerous padded surfaces – including the dash top and face, door tops, and armrests – their black surfaces are joined by mostly gloss-black trim, the combination leaving the interior looking a bit drab and dark." -- Consumer Guide
  • Reflecting the diamond profile of the C-HR's side, the interior designers put diamond-shaped imprints in the door panels and headliner. That unique styling drops down to earth with hard plastic trim pieces around the cabin." -- CNET

Seating

There is seating for five people in the C-HR. The front row is comfortable and supportive, but the back row is limited in terms of space, due to the C-HR’s sloping roofline and tiny rear windows. The Toyota features a nice, simplistic interior design. Cloth sport seats and six-way manually adjustable front seats are standard. Available features include leather-trimmed seats, an eight-way manually adjustable driver’s seat, and heated front seats.

  • It can accommodate adult passengers in all seats, though there are some drawbacks for taller drivers and rear passengers. Despite a few issues, we think most drivers will be fine with the interior over the long run." -- Edmunds
  • Many interior surfaces are padded, but the black-on-black color scheme - the only one offered - makes the C-HR seem a bit dark inside. Room is fine for four adults, and the slightly raised ride height allows easier entry and exit than in a car." -- Consumer Guide (2018)
  • "From the back seat, however, the C-HR is cramped and coffinlike, at best. The design of the rear window feels like something out of a 1970s-era airplane. To see out of it, you need to simultaneously lean forward and sit bolt upright. The rear door panel sits so high on the rear passenger seat that, even at 5-foot-7, I had a hard time seeing out the window. Children in car seats would fare far worse. Sitting in the back of the C-HR can encourage car sickness if your passengers are prone to it because there's no sightline to either the windshield or out the side window. It's a lot like being confined in a submarine, and the C-HR doesn't come with an optional sunroof, so it feels even more casketlike." -- Autoweek (2018)

Interior Features

There’s a good amount of features in the 2019 C-HR, including an Entune infotainment system with an 8-inch touch screen, a USB port, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, dual-zone automatic climate control. This Toyota also includes a host of safety features, such as a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, lane departure alert with steering assist, dynamic radar cruise control, and automatic high beams. Available features include an Entune app suite, HD Radio, navigation, LED fog lights, push-button start, rain-sensing windshield wipers, blind spot monitoring, and rear cross traffic alert.

The infotainment system is improved for 2019 with standard Apple CarPlay and a larger 8-inch touch screen. But some reviewers complain about the large number of submenus in the system, which can make some adjustments feel tedious.

  • "The addition of Apple CarPlay and a built-in navigation system is a significant improvement for the 2019 C-HR. It also continues to benefit from plenty of standard advanced safety features." -- Edmunds
  • "One more oddity in the features department: A backup camera is standard, but the tiny image is displayed in the rearview mirror instead of the multimedia screen – an antiquated and unhelpful setup." -- Cars.com (2018)
  • Volume is adjusted with a knob, but manual tuning is done through tedious repetitive-step pushbuttons, with other functions controlled through the touchscreen. Climate controls are all via repetitive-step 'flippers.' On the positive side, all controls are within easy reach." -- Consumer Guide (2018)

Cargo

The C-HR has 19 cubic feet of cargo space behind its rear seats, which expands to 36.4 cubic feet with the rear seats folded. These are some of the smallest cargo capacities in the class.

  • "It should come as no surprise that subcompact crossovers are limited when it comes to cargo capacity, but the C-HR has one of the smallest maximum spaces in the class. You'd be better off thinking of it as a raised hatchback rather than a crossover." -- Edmunds
  • Behind the rear seats, there's just 19.0 cubic feet of space, a bit more than the Renegade and Trax but much less than the HR-V. The seats fold easily in a 60/40 split for 36.4 cubic feet, much less than all three competitors." -- Cars.com
  • "Adding to the look is the steeply sloped rear window, which cuts into cargo volume." -- Consumer Guide
