Safety

Both the C-HR and the UX Series have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front and rear side-impact airbags, driver knee airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, front wheel drive, height adjustable front shoulder belts, plastic fuel tanks, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, crash mitigating brakes, daytime running lights, lane departure warning systems, rearview cameras, driver alert monitors, available blind spot warning systems and rear cross-path warning.

For its top level performance in all IIHS frontal, side, rear impact and roof-crush tests, and its standard front crash prevention system, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety grants the C-HR the rating of “Top Pick” for 2017, a rating granted to only 167 vehicles tested by the IIHS. The UX Series has not been tested, yet.

Warranty

Toyota pays for scheduled maintenance on the C-HR for 2 years and 25000 miles. Toyota will pay for oil changes, lubrication and any other required maintenance. Lexus only pays for the first scheduled maintenance visit on the UX Series.

There are over 5 times as many Toyota dealers as there are Lexus dealers, which makes it much easier should you ever need service under the C-HR’s warranty.

Fuel Economy and Range

The C-HR has 2.6 gallons more fuel capacity than the UX Series Hybrid’s standard fuel tank (13.2 vs. 10.6 gallons), for longer range between fill-ups.

Tires and Wheels

The C-HR has a standard space-saver spare tire so you can replace a flat tire and drive to have the flat repaired or replaced. A spare tire isn’t available on the UX Series; it requires you to depend on its run-flat tires, which limits mileage and speed before they are repaired. If a run-flat is damaged beyond repair by a road hazard your vehicle will have to be towed.

Chassis

The C-HR is 5.8 inches shorter than the UX Series, making the C-HR easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.

Passenger Space

The C-HR has .9 inches more front headroom, 1.4 inches more front legroom and 2 inches more rear headroom than the UX Series.

Ergonomics

The power windows standard on both the C-HR and the UX Series have locks to prevent small children from operating them. When the lock on the C-HR is engaged the driver can still operate all of the windows, for instance to close one opened by a child. The UX Series prevents the driver from operating the other windows just as it does the other passengers.

Recommendations

Consumer Reports® recommends the Toyota C-HR, based on reliability, safety and performance.

The Toyota C-HR outsold the Lexus UX Series by almost 110 to one during 2018.
