This car is all about choice.

It’s true, small SUVs are what people are choosing now. Not because they want something sensible, like a hatchback. And not because they want something with family-hauling practicality, like a mid-size SUV, or better yet, a wagon.

No, small SUVs are about style over convention. C-HR, for example, stands for Coupe High Rider. Seemingly oxymoronic by design, it aims to pack the practicality of a two-door sports car into something a little taller than a hatchback.

But here’s the thing; SUVs (especially these small ones) are the 'in' thing, and Toyota wants a larger piece of the action.

So, is it all as silly as it seems, or can the C-HR’s top Koba variant offer something beyond its edgy style?
