Exploring LA In A Brand New 2018 Toyota C-HR XLE Premium

Sooo I think it’s safe to say LA is my second home now! 😉 If you read my latest post on Where To Stay In Downtown LA, then you already know I’ve been on a MAJOR LA kick! hehe! But the last time I was here (and I say here, because I’m actually currently in LA as we speak haha!) I was able to drive around LA in a brand new 2018 Toyota C-HR XLE Premium!

It’s sleek, coupe-like design was made for beautiful Beverly Hills!

But that’s not the only place I drove the Toyota C-HR! I had it for a whole week so you KNOW I had to explore every inch of LA in it! I rode down PCH while the wind blew through my hair, music blasting. I went to meetings in Hollywood, photo shoots in downtown LA. Events in Orange County and me and D even went to the beach a couple of times!

It’s the perfect automobile for any occasion!

Oh! And did I mention the gas mileage is AMAZING!!! I drove all over LA county and barely used anything!! The Toyota C-HR gets 27 miles per gallon in the city and 31 on the highway. For the size, that’s great!! What kind of SUV do you know that get’s that?!

And I don’t know about you guys, but I love driving SUV’s! Not just because I like being higher up and it feels safer to me, but also because when I have photo shoots, I usually have a million and one things and sometimes I even have to change in the car in between looks, so the more space the better!

My first car was also an SUV so it’s always fun getting to drive another one for a few days.

The Toyota C-HR really is the perfect size!.. Not too big and not too small! The perfect subcompact SUV!

My favorite features however had to be the large 7-inch touch screen and the pre-collision alert with pedestrian detection.

The alert gave me peace of mind while driving in such a busy city, where there is often stop and go traffic. And I was also able to easily navigate my way around the radio with such a large screen! 😉

It was truly a treat riding around in the Toyota C-HR XLE Premium! What do you guys drive?!

And for more fun LA adventures, be sure to follow along on my Instagram to see what we’ve been up to this time around! Happy Monday!!!

    What a beautiful, stylish car! I’d almost forgotten about Toyota vehicles. Thank you so much for putting this great brand back on my radar. I might be willing to sell the Land Rover and buy one of these instead!

    I am in the market for an SUV and currently am looking at Honda CR-Vs and Audi Q5’s. I may need to look at this one as well. It is super cute!! I have noticed it on the road but never thought much of it until now…

  14. August 16, 2018 / 7:04 am

    This car looks fab! I’m not in the market for a new car yet, but I’ll have to keep it in mind!

  15. August 16, 2018 / 1:16 pm

    I love your blog! It’s so clean and aesthetically pleasing. I’m really digging the car too! It looks so comfy.
