Why Should Cleveland Area Drivers Choose a Crossover SUV?

When you're a kid, more is always better, but once you have kids of your own, you start to see the excess for what it is-excess! With a crossover SUV, you get all the space, capability, and added cargo room you need, but what you don't get is the excess space, the bulk, the heft, the hard-to-navigate-a-parking-lot sheer size of a full-size SUV. The 2018 Toyota CH-R is a handsome example of a crossover SUV, but it's so much more than just good looks and a compelling, dynamic design. Take a moment to compare it to another rather attractive crossover SUV, the 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport; you'll see how the 2018 Toyota CH-R fares in the face of stiff competition and be better informed when it comes time to pick one for you and your family.

  • Efficiency: When you're buying a crossover SUV, efficiency matters. If you're always stopping to fill up the gas tank, you're wasting time and money. That's why we're proud to share that the 2018 Toyota CH-R is simply more efficient than its competitor, the 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport. The 2018 Toyota CH-R XLE Premium, it's very top trim, offers an impressive fuel efficiency: 27 mpg city/31 mpg highway. By contrast, the 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport S FWD offers 25 mpg city; if you're thinking maybe the higher trim level fares better, consider the 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport SL AWD, which offers just 24 mpg city/30 mpg highway. As you can see, the 2018 Toyota CH-R offers more all-encompassing fuel efficiency.
  • Standard Features: We've talked about the numbers already, but what about the good stuff? The convenience items, the tech and infotainment, and especially the safety features? When it comes to standard features, the 2018 Toyota CH-R comes well-stocked and ready to roll, especially in the safety department. The 2018 Toyota CH-R gives you standard Toyota Safety Senseā„¢ P (TSS-P), which includes with it Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Automatic High Beams, and Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. Again, that's all standard. If you want those features in the 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport, you'll want to opt for the available technology and safety package, which will cost you a pretty penny extra. Call us crazy, but we agree with Toyota in that safety isn't a luxury reserved for those who can pay extra for it!
