Our 1.8 Hybrid CHR is just over a year old and at 7000 miles should be loosened up by now even though we are told it needed no running in?
It does about 50 mpg overall which is OK but no better than the 2011 Lexus CT we used to run years ago. Disappointing given all the years of 'development' Toyota have put in?
It's not a bad car and like all Toyotas we have ever had, it is totally reliable. BUT if it rode softer and was a bit quieter at speed it would endear itself to us a bit more.
MPG on the instant trip readout has been as high as 80 mpg on a gentle run on a hot day but I set a new record today for the worst mpg of any car ever at 0.5 mpg, yes, half an mpg!
Admittedly it was only over a very short area of car park relocation but nevertheless in the light of frequent poor readings of well below 20 mpg on short trips locally in winter weather it makes me seriously doubt the virtue of paying all that money for a hybrid?
The old CT would often run in pure electric mode for short distances in traffic but the CHR never does - progress eh? Performance is adequate rather than scintilating and we really love the silky smooth and effortless CVT automatic. MPG really falls away on the Motorway with nearer to 45 mpg on a long haul at 70 (ish) mph.
All in all we kinda like the car, but would we buy another, not sure, probably not.
On the other hand dealer attitude is far superior to European allegedly premium brands!

I have 13000 on the clock and I’m averaging 53.4mpg since new. This includes numerous trips to Devon M4/M5 and lots of 4 mile journeys on a dual carriageway where it doesn’t warm up to the end. I’m quite happy with the consumption, it could be higher if I wasn’t so heavy footed/impatient. What I particularly like is driving on EV through the town centre and not inflicting fumes on the pedestrians.

Mine has done 56 mpg measured over 3 yrs and 28000 miles. Ignore the spot mpg it is misleading. And mine DOES go on electric for short periods eg in traffic james which shuffle. along, and when coasting at medium speeds.
All the best

My mpg overall average is verified actual based on a years worth of tank brim to brim because the dash read out is overly optimistic by between 2 and 4 mpg - as with pretty much every car I have ever had when you check it and keep records for business use.

I'd agree on the electric only coasting. Only had the car (1.8) 2 months but it will coast on EV and nip through towns/villages on EV alone. When in traffic, it's superb. Interested to know the performance in summer months as only experienced winter so far.

My 2.0L is showing an average of about 47mpg with 900 miles on the clock. Reasonably happy with that as is mostly around town, apart from one 400 mile round trip. For part of that I could compare directly with my previous car, a Nissan Pulsar 1200. For half of the return part of the trip the Nissan showed a whisker under 50mpg, the C-HR 58mpg. In general, especially around town, I would say that the C-HR does 10mpg more than the Nissan, with noticeably better performance.
I did manage 90mpg on one short run which had an appreciable amount of downhill run.

I now have almost 550km (340miles) on the clock and even though this is a small sample I report the following:

City: 200 miles avg consumption always on Sport mode, A/C off, 1 person: 56 mpg
Motorway: Trip of 140 miles @ 75-80 mph on normal mode, A/C on, 2 persons, 1 child: 53 mpg
I am extremely pleased with the motorway performance as I was not expecting such a good performance (considering it weighs 1.5 tn)

I think the numbers will probably get better once the engine gets out of the break-in period.
In any case, I am very pleased!

Last week in the warmer weather, I was constantly at 68mpg. This week, 58mpg.

I’ve had hybrids for almost 10 years now. Previous car was a Lexus CT. same set up as the C-HR, so wasn’t expecting much more. CT and C-HR were/are on Gen3 system, but did expect some minor improvement to mpg.
