Whether you opt for the unique stylings of the base XLE trim or ascend to XLE Premium for a few added top-tier perks to enthuse, there's a drive-time to remember behind the wheel of the 2018 Toyota C-HR. Toyota's subcompact SUV offers the creature comforts, convenience amenities, and host of tech both in-cabin and under the hood to appeal to urban cruisers and owners of the highway alike.

Pop the sleekly designed hood and you'll find a 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder, 16-valve DOHC engine with Valvematic revving eagerly and ready to hit the road out of the Chicago area for Arlington Heights and beyond. 139 pound-feet of torque provides an energetic get-up-and-go, while 144 horsepower helps keep you sailing for the duration. What's more, the drive remains as sport-minded and responsive as it is enjoyably stable. 2018 C-HR's independent MacPherson strut front and double-wishbone rear suspension, each with hydraulic shock absorbers and SACHS dampers, dovetail with punchy Sport, comfortable Normal, and fuel-efficient ECO modes. Factor in Hill Start Assist Control for ascending inclines around Oak Lawn and Elmhurst like a pro, and Toyota C-HR shows itself capable of taking you there and back again reliably.

But such dependability can't inherit without the ride security to ensure peace of mind. To that end, 2018 Toyota C-HR showcases not only ten airbags and a 4.2-inch TFT multi-information display with customizable settings for quick metrics review with your eyes on the road, but also the automaker's standard Toyota Safety Sense? P system. It's comprised of a Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection for obstacle avoidance, as well as a Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist to help you remain on track. The suite's Automatic High Beams enable CH-R to pierce through the thick of inclement weather with fellow motorists in mind, and Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control helps ensure safe vehicular distancing.

Driver-assist features are, however, just the half of it. 2018 C-HR, a standard Star Safety System integrates Vehicle Stability Control, Traction Control, and an anti-lock brake system with Electronic Brake-Force Distribution, Brake Assist and Smart Stop Technology. That means the trifecta of a sturdy drive, plenty of pulling power over uneven and slippery terrain, and stopping power you can count on. The CH-R XLE Premium trim even features a step up to fog lights and the inclusion of a Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, making it a snap to remain apprised of vehicles on approach.

Plus, 2018 Toyota C-HR features no shortage of ride-easing accouterments. Remote keyless entry presents in 2018 C-HR XLE, and graduation to XLE Premium brings with it curios like an all-door touch-sensor lock/unlock feature, power outside mirrors showcasing turn signal and blind spot warning indicators, and a front-door Smart Key System building in Push Button Start.

Once inside, you'll find 2018 C-HR accommodating, with a dual-zone automatic climate control system to customize a cabin complete with sport fabric-trimmed, six-way adjustable driver's and passenger's seats, each with ensconcing sport bolsters. Front driver's seating expands to eight-way adjustment and incorporates power lumbar support in CH-R's XLE Premium trim for the height of travel comfort. Plus, an efficient cargo volume of up to 36.4 cubic feet burgeons behind the first row, with 19.0 cubic feet behind the second, providing ample room for road swag. Just connect your iPod to the SUV's six-speaker, 7-inch touchscreen-equipped Display Audio system via its USB 2.0 port -- 2018 CH-R also features Bluetooth tech for wireless audio streaming aficionados -- and head out on your adventure. An HD Radio should present plenty of listening options, too, while voice recognition with voice training keeps adjustment a breeze.
