The Toyota C-HR Hybrid starts at just over £28,000 for the entry-level 1.8-litre model, although you may want to consider going up a trim level to get sat nav. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity are standard across the line-up, however, so it's possible to get by with Google Maps on your phone.

The price jumps quickly as you step up though the trim range, so be aware that if you go for a higher-spec C-HR, you could be paying much the same as you would for the faster and also pretty well equipped MINI Countryman. Charge it up, and the MINI can go much further on electric power alone, too.

The C-HR is classed as a petrol-engined car when it comes to company-car tax, but its modest CO2 emissions keep it sensible Benefit-in-Kind (BiK) bands. It'll be cheaper for company-car users than diesel SUV alternatives, but a plug-in hybrid or fully electric car is going to be much cheaper still.

Toyota C-HR insurance group

The C-HR Hybrid will be affordable to insure. It’s rated in groups 15 (for the entry-level 1.8-litre in Icon trim) to 22 (for the highest-spec 2.0-litre range-topper).

Warranty

Toyota’s five-year/100,000-mile warranty is one of the longest available – and you can continue to extend it up to the 10-year mark as long as you get annual servicing carried out at a Toyota main dealer.

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 £155 a year to tax – £10 per annum less than petrols and diesels. No version exceeds the £40,000 list-price threshold where you need to pay an additional amount the first five times the car is taxed.
