    Would anyone have any idea of the price range for this car?

    My guess would be midway pricing between Yaris and C-HR so circa €24.5-€25k


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,076 ✭✭✭ Sunrise_Sunset


    Thanks. One article I read estimated about 21k and another about 25k. That'd be quite a big difference for me. Might have to wait to get one a few months old.....if my current car will last that long.

    @OP Have you looked at the Ford Fiesta Active. It is something similar and 17k would get you into a base spec one a Focus Active is from 22k. Some lovely cars in the current Ford range if you are worried about your car not lasting.

    Here is a link,

    Thank you. I suppose the Ford Puma would be more on par size wise, as a mini-SUV. I like Toyota's though. I've always driven them. All 2 of them. That's all I've needed. They just last great and cost so little to maintain.

    You are welcome. The Puma is there too. It is also very nice. No harm in having a look.
    Awe very good.
    Puegeot 2008 is another option.
    Citroen C3 Aircross and Renault Captur are too more.

    It will be a few months maybe even a year yet before the Yaris Cross is out.

    The longer it take the better. Especially if the price will be closer to 25k. It would give me more time to save. But catch 22, as only if my current 20 year old car will make it til then. Although there's no indication it won't, still running absolutely fine.

    Sorry but that car is bloody awful looking, it looks like a kia sportage.

    I think it looks really nice. Would obviously want to see it in person though.

    Which car ate you on about and what's wrong with a Kia Sportage. In the right colour and the right spec they look great. I bet you would change your mind if you seen the GT Sportage? It looks really well. I will admit they could drive a bit better but the GT is supposed to be really good.

    I'm keen on the Yaris Cross as well. Ford/VW don't seem to have any hybrid SUVs in the 25k range as far as I checked.

    The Puma (if you could call it an SUV) comes in Hybrid now. It starts around that price range plus

    Is that not just a faux mild hybrid? Don't think they are a proper hybrid in the same sense as the Toyota.

    I think the Puma ST line might be a proper hybrid but anyway the 1 litre engine seems quite small for a mini SUV. Atleast the Yaris Cross will have the bigger 1.5 engine for motorways.

    There is no "proper" Puma hybrid. They are all mild hybrids which is not the same.

    it makes me genuinely sad to think young people today are getting excited about crossovers. The future of motoring is bleak.

    unkess I have missed something it seems a no brainier to go a few grand more and get a CHR



  • Registered Users Posts: 9,484 ✭✭✭ ba_barabus


    I spotted one yesterday and it really stood out. If you've kids it's much better than a CHR



  • Registered Users Posts: 5,517 ✭✭✭ Old diesel


    THIS.

    CHRs are dark in the back and not especially roomy.
