HR-V Vs Competition

The Honda HR-V vs. the Competition

When shopping for a new compact crossover, you’ll have plenty of options to choose from. However, few measure up to the new 2019 Honda HR-V. For good reason, it received Kelly Blue Book’s Best Resale Value Award. Here’s an overview of how the Honda HR-V compares to the competition.

COMPARABLY EQUIPPED MSRP* $23,720 $22,895 $23,330
HORSEPOWER @ RPM 141 @ 6500 152 @ 6000 144 @ 6100
CITY/HIGHWAY** 28/34 27/33 27/31
Fuel Tank Capacity, Approx (gal) 13.2 16.6 13.2
Passenger Capacity 5 5 5
PASSENGER VOLUME CU. FT. 110.1 100.9 83.8

vs. Subaru Crosstrek

While the Subaru Crosstrek is a solid choice, it loses to the Honda HR-V in some important categories. Your family will especially appreciate the HR-V’s more spacious backseat. Passengers will enjoy an extra 2.8 inches of legroom. Greater cargo space gives the HR-V yet another advantage over the Crosstrek.

When it comes to passenger safety, the Honda HR-V is a step ahead of the Crosstrek. Although both of these crossovers provide outstanding crash protection, only the Honda HR-V offers Road Departure Mitigation. This innovative safety feature helps prevent you from unintentionally drifting off the paved road surface. You’ll also appreciate the HR-V’s standard multi-angle backup camera, which provides better visibility than the Crosstrek’s single-view camera.

The Honda HR-V brings a great deal of value to the table. It has a starting MSRP of $20,620. By comparison, Subaru lists the Crosstrek with a starting MSRP of $21,895.

Looking at the stats above, it's hard to deny the superiority of the Honda Accord. Don't just take out word for it. Stop by Capitol City Honda to schedule a test drive or call us at 800-594-2956. We'll be more than happy to put you in a Honda Accord of your very own!

vs. Toyota CH-R

Although the Toyota CH-R deserves some consideration, it’s handily defeated by the Honda HR-V in some critical areas. You’ll definitely appreciate the HR-V’s fuel savings. According to the EPA, the HR-V will return up to 34 mpg. Meanwhile, expect the Toyota CH-R to top out at 31 mpg.

A roomier interior makes the Honda HR-V a far more accommodating family vehicle. While the HR-V has a total passenger volume 110.1 cubic feet, the Toyota CH-R has a maximum passenger volume of just 83.8 cubic feet. There’s also an extra 4.2 cubic feet of cargo space behind the HR-V’s rear seat.

While both of these crossovers come standard with front-wheel drive, only the new Honda HR-V offers all-wheel drive. If you need to travel during inclement weather, the HR-V is a far better option.

Final Thoughts

The 2019 Honda HR-V continues to dominate the competition. It excels in all of the areas that today’s car shoppers care about the most. If you would like to test drive the new HR-V, stop by Capitol City Honda or call us at 800-594-2956. You’ll then see why the HR-V stands out from the pack!
