Toyota C-HR Hybrid MPG & CO2 emissions

The Toyota C-HR has low CO2 emissions and impressive claimed economy, but you’ll have to drive it carefully to match the official figures

MPG (combined) MPG (high) MPG (low) CO2
50-59mpg 57-66mpg 53-71mpg 86-92g/km

During about-town pottering, the C-HR Hybrid will drive on electric power alone, using no petrol at all. You won’t get very far before the petrol engine fires up, but even so the C-HR makes for an impressively efficient urban commuter.

Fuel consumption will take a hit on the motorway or in any sort of hard driving, though; in these conditions, a diesel will likely deliver better fuel economy. The more recently introduced 2.0-litre hybrid engine is 50% more powerful than the 1.8-litre, but, Toyota says, only 10% less efficient.

Toyota C-HR Hybrid MPG & CO2

The C-HR Hybrid has an on-paper fuel-economy figure of between 50 and 59mpg and our time in the 1.8-litre version of the car suggested that you should average around 55mpg in varied driving, which is not be sniffed at.

Driving the 2.0-litre, we saw and indicated 59mpg at low speeds, dropping into the 40s once we hit the motorway. Around town, we were in electric mode about 60 percent of the time; Toyota claims it's possible up to 80 percent of the time in urban driving.

The C-HR Hybrid’s CO2 emissions are good, at 86g/km for the 1.8-litre and 92g/km for the 2.0-litre. They make either model an affordable proposition for company-car buyers – even compared to non-hybrid alternatives that might be cheaper on list price but not as low on CO2.
