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.

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.

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.
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!
