2019 Nissan Qashqai Vs 2019 Toyota C-HR

2019 Nissan Qashqai Vs 2019 Toyota C-HR

The small sport utility segment is particularly popular in Canada and Nissan as well as Toyota know it very well. That's why the two Japanese manufacturers offer sub-compact SUV options, the 2019 Nissan Qashqai and the 2019 Toyota C-HR. Both models are very different from each other, however, and they will meet different needs.

If you want a spacious compact SUV, the Qashqai will better meet your expectations. This is also true if you are looking for good performance combined with class-leasing fuel economy that dominates the segment, the most advanced active safety technologies possible and all-wheel drive. Because no, the Toyota C-HR cannot be equipped with all-wheel drive which immediately gives the Qashqai the advantage in winter driving.

Much more space and more safety in the 2019 Nissan Qashqai

The 2019 Nissan Qashqai offers a cabin that can accommodate 648 liters in the trunk compared to 538 liters in the 2019 Toyota C-HR. The difference between the two models is even more remarkable when you look at cargo capacity with all seats lowered. The Qashqai offers 1,730 liters of cargo space against 1,031 liters for the C-HR. In other words, the 2019 Nissan Qashqai offers the equivalent of a second small SUV in terms of space when you lower the last row of seats.

Under the hood, the two small SUVs offer about the same power from their four-cylinder engines, but the 2.0-liter Qashqai is much more fuel-efficient with an average fuel consumption rating of 8.6 liters per 100 kilometers in the city and 7.2 liters per 100 kilometers on the highway. That's about 1.0 liter less than the C-HR which can become significant after a few years behind the wheel.

Especially since the Toyota C-HR is more expensive than the Qashqai which is offered starting at $ 20,198. The Toyota starts at $ 23,675 with the same level of equipment as the Nissan. In better equipped versions, the Qashqai far exceeds the C-HR in terms of equipment, especially with its exclusive ProPILOT system. The Qashqai can also receive Android Auto and Apple CarPlay while the C-HR does not have Android Auto. It does not have AWD either as mentioned above.
