Toyota C-HR Hybrid running costs

The Toyota C-HR Hybrid isn’t cheap, but finance deals are competitive and its fuel economy is impressive

Toyota C-HR
Insurance group Warranty Service intervals 2019/20 company-car tax cost (20%/40%)
15-24 5yrs / 100,000 miles 1yr / 10,000 miles From £1,120 / £2,241

The Toyota C-HR Hybrid starts at under £26,000 for the entry-level 1.8-litre Icon model, which is the best-value edition, although you’ll probably want to factor in an extra £750 to get sat nav.

The price jumps up quickly as you step up the trim range. So be aware that if you go for a high-spec C-HR Hybrid, you could be paying much the same as you would for the faster and also pretty well equipped MINI Countryman S E plug-in hybrid, which can go much further on electric power alone.

The C-HR Hybrid is classed as a petrol car for company-car tax, but as it emits between 86 and 92g/km of CO2, it falls into a low Benefit-in-Kind (BiK) band. The C-HR Hybrid will also be cheaper for company-car users than most diesel SUV alternatives such as the SEAT Ateca.

Toyota C-HR insurance group

The C-HR Hybrid should be affordable to insure. It’s rated in groups 15 (for the entry-level 1.8-litre Icon) to 24 (for the 2.0-litre Orange Edition range-topper).

Warranty

Toyota’s five-year/100,000-mile warranty is one of the longest available and you can extend the battery portion of the warranty. Make sure you pay the circa £50 a year to have the specialist Toyota Hybrid Electric Service for your car and the battery will be covered up to 10 years, and for unlimited mileage.

Servicing

Toyota’s servicing plans start from around £15 a month, and even if you don’t take out one of these policies, official dealers charge fixed prices for specific jobs, so budgeting for maintenance will be simple.

Road tax

As a hybrid, the Toyota C-HR will cost £135 a year to tax, £10 per annum less than petrols and diesels.
