The 2022 Toyota C-HR is a cool-looking compact crossover SUV known for its rad styling. The C-HR grabs a lot of attention with its coupe-like body shape and it just stands out in the crowd. And it’s not just the C-HR’s exterior that has a unique design, but its interior too has a very unique design.

The 2022 C-HR is targeted at a younger audience and those who would appreciate a crossover with a cool twist. Now, this idea might sound good but the CH-R hasn’t quite had the success that Toyota had expected. And apart from being equipped with a lousy engine and sluggish driving dynamics, the not-so-practical cabin is also a reason why it didn’t sell. 2022 Toyota C-HR rivals the likes of 2022 Honda HR-V, 2022 Mazda CX-30 and 2022 Volkswagen Taos.

2022 Toyota C-HR Interior Design, Dimensions, and Comfort

The 2022 C-HR has a rather quirky and funky interior design. The base spec XLE trim level is offered with a black and blue color scheme while the Nightshade Edition and the Limited trim levels get a black and silver color combination. The dashboard is oddly shaped and has multiple contours. It is unlike any dashboard you’ll find in any other car. The infotainment screen, the central air-con vents, and the air-con controls are slightly angled towards the driver for better access. Toyota has inculcated the diamond pattern all over the interior to give it a unique touch. The quality of materials used is quite decent. Yes, there are a few hard plastic bits around that look a bit cheap but you can still live with it. 

2022 Toyota C-HR Front Seats

The interior design may not appeal to all but those looking for something fancy and groovy might just be interested in the design. The C-HR is a compact crossover and the amount of passenger space on offer is just decent. The front seats come wrapped in cloth upholstery as standard but you can upgrade to heated front seats wrapped in leather upholstery in Limited trim. Moreover, you get an eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat. The amount of head and legroom at the front is good but the shoulder room isn’t all that good. At the back, the legroom is pretty tight, and tall passengers will have their knees brushing to the front seats all the time. Moreover, the windows at the back are very tiny and oddly shaped. Hence, the amount of light entering the cabin is a bit low and that’s one of the other reasons why the second row of the C-HR feels a little too cramped than it actually is.

The 2022 C-HR has the lowest passenger space on offer in the competition and has the most cramped cabin in the segment. The Honda HR-V has the most spacious cabin and offers ample room in both rows. In terms of the overall design, we found the Mazda CX-30 to be better than the rest and it just feels more upscale than all the others in the segment.

2022 Toyota C-HR Infotainment

The 2022 Toyota C-HR comes equipped with an 8-inch touchscreen display and a 6-speaker audio system standard across all trim levels. The display isn’t all that great and tends to lag a bit.

2022 Toyota C-HR Infotainment System

The touch responsiveness is decent at best but sometimes you need to press the screen hard to get going. The Entune infotainment unit UI is intuitive either and navigating through the menus is easy. As standard, you also get a 6-speaker sound system.

Key Infotainment Features

  • 8-inch touchscreen infotainment display
  • 6-speaker audio system
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
  • Amazon Alexa compatible
  • Voice recognition
  • SiriusXM satellite radio.

2022 Toyota C-HR Cargo Capacity

The cargo space on offer with the 2022 C-HR is pretty decent and it is rated at 19.1 cubic feet. Flip the second row down and then you have about 37 cubic feet of luggage storage space.

The second-row split folds in 60/40 fashion which comes in handy when you need to carry extra luggage.

The Volkswagen Taos has the highest cargo capacity on offer in the competition. With the seats up, the VW can hold about 27.9 cubic feet of luggage while with the second row down, you can stuff in about 65.9 cubic feet. This is almost twice as good as the C-HR. The Honda HR-V has the next highest cargo carrying capacity.

Additional Interior Storage Spaces

The 2022 C-HR has a few storage spaces inside. At the front, there’s a large glovebox, then there are two cupholders in the center console and a storage cubby below the front armrest. There’s also a wireless charging dock at the front that holds your phone and all 4 doors have storage pockets. The front seats have storage pockets at the back and the rear door armrests have cup holders on them for the rear passengers to store their drinks.

2022 Toyota C-HR Creature Comforts

The 2022 C-HR comes well equipped right from the base trim level. The XLE trim gets creature comfort features like fabric upholstery, leather-wrapped steering wheel, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a leather-wrapped gear shift lever. The Limited trim level gets heated, 8-way power-adjustable, front seats, and leather upholstery in addition to all the equipment that the XLE trim gets.

Verdict

The interior of the CH-R is a mixed bag. While the funky styling and feature-loaded cabin may appeal to many, the CH-R fails to score in terms of practicality. The passenger room is scant. This clearly isn’t a very comfortable vehicle to drive around in. Plus, the cargo capacity of the CH-R isn’t that great either. And even though it comes with a long list of standard creature comfort features, that isn’t enough to help the passenger be comfortable. If you’re looking for something that stands out and if you crave a fancy design, then the CH-R might be a good option. Otherwise, the likes of VW Taos and Mazda MX-30 offer a good balance of comfort and practicality.
