2018 Toyota C-HR vs 2017 Nissan Juke
Early last year, Toyota unveiled a brand-new addition to their lineup: The Toyota C-HR. Short for Compact High Rider, the C-HR is a subcompact crossover that manages to deliver a set of capabilities typically only achieved by a smaller sedan, yet it has the look and the space of a larger SUV. The balance of performance, fuel economy and cargo volume has helped the C-HR to find a great deal of success since it was brought to market, and a good deal of that success has a lot to do with how it stacks up against the competition.
One of the C-HR’s biggest rivals is the Nissan Juke, which mirrors the C-HR with its athletic, sporty build. Both subcompact crossovers have some similarities, but they also have their fair share of differences, and ultimately, it is the differences that help one of the two to stand above the other. To help you in your search for the compact SUV that is right for you, let’s take a closer look at how the 2018 Toyota C-HR stacks up against the 2017 Nissan Juke.

|2.0L Four-Cylinder||Engine||1.6L Four-Cylinder|
|36.4 Cubic Feet||Cargo Volume||35.9 Cubic Feet|
Advantages of the 2018 Toyota C-HR
Given the similar sizes of the C-HR and the Juke, it’s likely no surprise that they come in fairly close in things like cargo and passenger volume. The C-HR manages to pull ahead slightly when it comes to the former, as it boasts a maximum cargo volume of 36.4 cubic feet, which is roughly half of a cubic foot more than the 35.9-cubic-foot volume of the Juke. It may not seem like a drastic difference, but keep in mind that every inch counts when you’re looking at packing in five passengers, as well as cargo for every person.
In the performance department, the Toyota C-HR comes out ahead with an engine that is slightly larger than the one found in the Juke. The 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine—which comes paired to a continuously variable transmission—manages to produce 144 horsepower and get up to 31 miles to the gallon on the highway. The power is more than enough for the smaller SUV, but despite the pep that it puts into its step, arguably the biggest benefit of the engine is the aforementioned fuel economy rating. With more than 30 mpg, the C-HR rivals many of the larger sedans on the market in the efficiency department.
