2018 Honda HR-V


Between the Honda CR-V vs. Honda HR-V, which one has the right performance specs for your busy life? That depends on your needs. If you’re interested in robust horsepower and serious torque, then you might want to take a second look at the Honda CR-V. The standard 2.4L 4-cylinder engine delivers 184 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque, while higher trims feature a turbocharged 1.5L with 190 hp and 179 lb-ft of torque. The Honda HR-V crossover is equipped with a 1.8L 4-cylinder, which produces 141 hp and 127 lb-ft of torque. While that doesn’t reach the heights of the Honda CR-V specs, it’s still a big step up from your average sedan.

While the Honda CR-V has the edge when it comes to horsepower, the HR-V has the advantage when it comes to fuel economy. When equipped with the available CVT and 2WD, the base HR-V can produce an EPA-estimated 28 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway*. The base CR-V just falls a little bit short, generating 26 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway with a CVT and 2WD. However, if you opt for the optional turbocharged engine, the CR-V is capable of matching the HR-V’s terrific fuel economy figures. So if you are comparing base models, the HR-V is the champion of efficiency. If you’re willing to upgrade, then the two models are very similar.

Finally, what about interior space? The Honda HR-V is a crossover, while the CR-V is a compact SUV. That means that the CR-V was built with larger dimensions, though the HR-V just might surprise you with its clever design. Overall, the CR-V just has more room to spare. It has a maximum cargo volume of 75.8 cubic feet, compared to 58.8 cubic feet on the HR-V. Passenger volume is quite similar with just over 5 extra cubic feet for five passengers on the CR-V. And while the CR-V’s split fold-down 60/40 will open up your cargo space beautifully, the HR-V’s 60/40-split Magic Seat technology just might win you over. You can fold both the seatbacks and the seat cushions to make room for long, tall, or bulky cargo in seconds.
