The 2017 Nissan Qashqai and the Toyota C-HR are the two newest SUVs to emerge in the increasingly busy subcompact SUV segment. These SUVs are usually the most affordable utility vehicles offered by their respective brands, and those that offer a driving demeanor that is closest to a traditional car. They are also the most fuel-efficient, and the easiest to drive in the city.
In return, they each offer useful cargo space and the enhanced safety that comes with an elevated driving position. That's why these models are so popular, and why we see so many new models in this segment, starting with the 2017 Nissan Qashqai and the Toyota C-HR.
If you are unsure which option is best for you, here is a small comparison that will help you choose which model best suits your needs and expectations.

The biggest difference between the 2017 Nissan Qashqai and the Toyota C-HR is undoubtedly the price. While the Nissan Qashqai is the most affordable sub-compact SUV in its segment with a starting price of $ 19,998, the Toyota C-HR is the most expensive with a starting price of $ 24,690. Both vehicles come standard with heated seats and a rear-view camera, but the latter is integrated into the rear-view mirror in the Toyota C-HR.
The latter also offers 17-inch wheels, which you can also get in the Qashqai SV which is offered starting at $ 24,598. The SV version is therefore more affordable than the entry-level C-HR model, but you also get a heated steering wheel, sunroof, dual-zone air conditioning, remote starter and keyless entry with push-button start. Some of these systems are not even available on the C-HR.
And finally, the 2017 Nissan Qashqai is offered with all-wheel drive starting at $ 24,198. The Toyota C-HR does not even offer the all-wheel drive option.
Ultimately, the 2017 Nissan Qashqai offers more value than the Toyota C-HR. Both have their strengths, but buyers who want to get more for their money will definitely turn to the new Qashqai. The latter is also more spacious by about 100 liters in the trunk with its 648 liters.
