Honda CR-V vs Honda HR-V

The 2018 Honda HR-V has proven to be a popular crossover, but it’s left some Goshen and Monroe drivers wondering how it differs from the 2018 Honda CR-V. To help decide which one is right for you, we’ve written this quick and easy comparison

Trim Levels

The CR-V has been established since 1997, and it comes with four trim levels:

  • LX: The LX features a multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines, an SMS feature for reading incoming messages aloud, and a remote entry system for enhanced convenience.
  • EX: The EX provides a one-touch power moonroof with tilt feature to open up your ride, as well as heated front seats and a 7-inch display audio touchscreen.
  • EX-L: The EX-L includes leather-trimmed seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and even dual-zone climate control.
  • Touring: The Touring trim combines the comfort features of the EX-L with advanced technology. A power tailgate, Honda satellite-linked navigation system, and range of Honda Sensing driver assistance technologies come standard with the Touring Trim.

The HR-V comes with only three trim options, but still provides plenty to enjoy:

  • LX: The LX also offers a multi-angle rearview camera and remote entry system, as well as basic features such as cruise control.
  • EX: The EX adds heated front seats, a 7-inch display audio touchscreen with Pandora functionality, and a panoramic power moonroof as standard.
  • EX-L: The EX-L provides drivers with a stunning leather-trimmed interior that boasts a satellite-linked navigation system with voice recognition and a premium audio system.

Powertrains and MPG

The CR-V is powered by a 1.5L turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine paired with a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) with Sport Mode. That means that Goshen and Monroe drivers will be able to control an impressive 190 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque for a phenomenal ride, even while earning up to 26* mpg in the city and 32* mpg on the highway.The 2018 Honda HR-V also includes one engine across all trim levels: a 1.8L 4-cylinder that is capable of generating up to 141 hp and 127 lb-ft of torque. That’s slightly less than the CR-V can command, but the lighter HR-V doesn’t require quite so much force. Additionally, it boasts stronger efficiency ratings, earning 25** mpg in the city and 33** mpg on the highway.

Interior

The 2017 HR-V is clearly smaller than the 2017 CR-V interior, so it’s no surprise to learn that interior dimensions differ. What is surprising is how minimally this affects passenger volume, with 104.1 cubic feet in the CR-V vs. 100.1 in the HR-V. The difference will be barely distinguishable, despite the fact that both vehicles carry a maximum of five passengers.However, the CR-V does pull ahead when it comes to cargo space. With all seats occupied, the CR-V provides 39 cubic feet compared to 24 cubic feet in the HR-V; fold the seats down to open up 76 cubic feet in the CR-V compared to 59 cubic feet in the HR-V. If you frequently need to take plenty of cargo with you, the CR-V might be a better option.

However, the CR-V provides a few safety technologies that the HR-V doesn’t, including:

  • Power Tailgate: Opens at the touch of a button for easy loading and unloading.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control: Adjusts vehicle speed to account for the distance between your CR-V and the car ahead.
  • Lane Departure Warning: If you begin to deviate without indication, an alert will be provided.
