Honda CR-V vs Honda HR-V

If you’re looking for a small crossover, the 2019 Honda CR-V and Honda HR-V stand out in their respective segments. Similar as they are, they have a few key differences that may affect which one you choose for your Fresno, Clovis, or Visalia drive.

In this car comparison, our team at Selma Honda will put these vehicles head-to-head, so you can decide which has more of the qualities you need. If you have questions, just drop us a line at your convenience!

 

CR-V vs HR-V: Interior Features

The main difference between the 2019 CR-V and HR-V is one of size: The former slots in the compact SUV segment, while the latter is just a bit smaller, as a subcompact SUV. This affects the amount of space you’ll find inside.

Look to the cargo areas, and you’ll see the most significant difference. The smaller HR-V offers roughly 23 cubic feet of cargo volume behind the rear seats, while the CR-V makes space for 39 cubic feet. You’ll have room for much more gear in the compact Honda crossover.

In fact, if you fold the backseat in the CR-V, you’ll have nearly 76 cubic feet of usable storage space. In the HR-V, folding the rear seats yields nearly 58 cubic feet. You’ll need to decide how much space you need before choosing your next crossover.

 

Efficient Engine Specifications

You’re in for an efficient ride whether you choose the Honda CR-V or Honda HR-V. Both achieve an EPA-estimated 28 city and 34 highway MPG when properly configured.1 For your daily commute or next cross-country road trip, you’ll enjoy excellent fuel economy in either SUV.

The base engines in both vehicles are designed for around-town driving. You’ll see up to 141 horsepower from the 4-cylinder in the HR-V and 184 horsepower from the 4-cylinder in the CR-V. Those outputs match the respective sizes of these cars and provide similar driving experiences.

Looking for a little extra pep? The CR-V offers an available turbocharged 4-cylinder with 190 horsepower on tap. On paper, it doesn’t look much different from the base engine, but you’ll find it feels much more potent when you hit the road.

When it comes to handling, though, the HR-V has an advantage: Test drivers have found it carlike, with a little extra agility on winding roads.
