Should I buy the Toyota C-HR Hybrid of the Camry HL Hybrid?

I am considering buying a petrol/electric Hybrid and I was wondering what your advice would be in comparing the Toyota C-HR Hybrid vs Toyota Camry HL Hybrid. My price range is between $25,000-$35,000 for an approx. one-year-old car.

Unfortunately the C-HR Hybrid isn't yet on sale in Australia, though it is likely to be available here in 2020.

If you can't wait that long, the Corolla Hybrid could be a great option for you. That is, unless you need a big back seat, a big boot or a full size spare wheel... You only get a full size spare on the top-spec ZR, which is beyond the budget, and no Corolla hatch has a big back seat or boot. There is a Corolla sedan coming in November, which will have a big boot and bigger back seat. 

The Camry Hybrid is a much bigger car, and offers a lot more accommodation as a result. It's a big, lovely car - one we'd wholeheartedly recommend. And you should be able to fine one under $30k less than 12 months old. 

Otherwise, check out the Corolla Hybrid (SX would be our recommendation), and you might even be able to get one brand new within your budget.

Test drive them both, and let us know how you go!
