B-Segment Crossovers are the latest hot segment in the automotive market. Why? That’s a great question, and we don’t have an answer for it, because we find the entire equation of B-Segment Crossovers (a) compromised and (b) just plain dumb.

It was September of 2015 when we first drove the then Scion iM, and in general, we liked it as it was the European version of the Toyota Corolla. Now that the Scion brand has been sunset Toyota has brought this model over to bolster the Corolla lineup.

It’s no secret that most Chevrolet vehicles are dismissed out of hand because of the reputation they have earned over the last 40 years. That’s not totally unfair.

In fact, we think it’s the best four-door family sedan Chevy has produced in the last 40 years.
Toyota is entering the small crossover segment with their new C-HR. This will be going up against the likes of the Honda HR-V, Nissan Juke, Kia Soul, Jeep Renegade, Chevy Trax and Mazda CX-3.
