    We live in Europe and have found an opportunity to buy (in Europe) a 2018 used Prius Hybrid with 5,000 Km. We were told that Hybrid CHR may be a better car than Prius as the CHR is endowed with more modern technology. Does any Prius owner have experience with CHR and believes that CHR is a superior car.

    Thanks

    We don't get C-HR in Hybrid form here. But I did look at one, and was horrified by the back seat. I couldn't see out very well and felt claustrophobic - I certainly wouldn't be putting children in there without issuing them with vomit bags. In reality it's a 2 seater. The boot isn't particularly good either. And the back passenger door handle is awkwardly high - for children, and seemed very fragile.

    Front seats seemed better than PRIUS though.

    welcome!
    i have a hard time believing the tech is better, unless they are talking about entune or whatever they call it in europe.
    of course, you have to compare packages and options as well.
    gen 4 prius is proving to be a great car, and unless you prefer the look, ride, etc. of the ch-r, i wouldn't hesitate to buy the prius.

    all the best!(y)
