18. TOYOTA C-HR
THE C-HR shows just how brave Toyota can be, with a dramatic exterior and classy cabin helping it to stand out from the SUV crowd.
There’s no diesel, the brand instead offering the SUV with a petrol engine or the petrol-electric hybrid system from the Prius. And both demonstrate a fine balance of ride comfort and handling agility.
However, you can only have four-wheel drive if you go for the 1.2 turbo. Price range: £21,065-£28,085 Our pick: 1.2T Excel (£24,065) Engine: 1.2-litre 4cyl petrol, 113bhp Transmission: 6-spd man, front-wheel drive Top speed: 118mph Economy: 47.1mpg CO2: 136g/km
