The small sport utility segment is particularly popular in Quebec and both Nissan and Toyota are well aware of this. This is why the two Japanese manufacturers have been offering two subcompact SUV options since around the same time, the 2019 Nissan Qashqai and the 2019 Toyota C-HR. These two models are very different from each other, however, and they will meet different needs. If you want a roomy compact SUV, the Qashqai will better meet your expectations. This is also true if you are looking for good performance combined with segment-leading fuel economy, the most advanced active safety technologies and all-wheel drive. Because no, the Toyota C-HR cannot be equipped with all-wheel drive which immediately gives the Qashqai the advantage in winter driving.


The 2019 Nissan Qashqai offers an interior which can accommodate 648 liters in the trunk compared to 538 liters in the 2019 Toyota C-HR. The difference between the two models is even more remarkable when you look at the cargo capacity with all the seats down. The Qashqai then offers 1,730 liters of cargo space compared to 1,031 liters for the C-HR. In other words, the 2019 Nissan Qashqai offers the equivalent of a second small SUV in terms of space when you lower the last row of seats. Under the hood, the two small SUVs offer about the same power as their four-cylinder engine, but the Qashqai's 2.0-liter is much more fuel-efficient with an average fuel consumption of 8.6 liters per 100 kilometers in the city and 7.2 liters. every 100 kilometers on the highway. This is about 1.0 liter less than the C-HR which can become significant after a few years behind the wheel, Especially since the Toyota C-HR is more expensive than the Qashqai which starts at $ 20,198, the Toyota starts at $ 23,675 with the same level of equipment as the Nissan. In the better equipped versions the Qashqai far exceeds the C-HR in terms of equipment, notably with its exclusive ProPILOT system. The Qashqai can also receive Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as standard while the C-HR does not have Android Auto. It doesn't have all-wheel drive as previously mentioned.
