It all comes down to how much passenger space you need and what you want from your Honda overall. Check out our comparison guide before you start test-driving these peppy crossovers.

Performance and Fuel Efficiency

Both crossovers aim to please, with a balance of athleticism and fuel economy. All HR-V trims come with a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that generates 141 horsepower and 127 pound-feet of torque. Paired with a continuously variable transmission, this engine achieves 28 city/34 highway mpg*. The CR-V also impresses. It offers two engine options. The first is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder that makes 184 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque. The second is a turbocharged four-cylinder that generates 190 horses and 179 pound-feet of torque. Depending on how you configure yours, the CR-V also earns up to 28/34 mpg**.

Interior Comfort and Style

The Honda HR-V is a subcompact crossover. Its small size makes it perfect for commuting, but, inside, it still delivers impressive passenger space and comfort. Both rows of seating offer generous head- and legroom. Behind the rear seats, you’ll find 24.3 cubic feet for your weekend luggage. Fold the rear seats down to create 58.8 cubic feet of maximum cargo space. As a compact crossover, the Honda CR-V is a little bit bigger than the HR-V. If you’ve got tall kids or simply prefer a bigger crossover, this is the right choice for you. It also offers increased cargo space, with 37.2 cubic feet behind the rear seats. Fold those seats down to create maximum cargo volume of 75.8 cubes.


On EX trims and up, both crossovers feature the Honda Sensing suite. Upgrade your ride to enjoy features like forward collision warning with automatic braking. If it pulls you up short of just one accident, it pays for itself. The suite also includes lane departure warning and intervention, a system that can sense when you’ve strayed from the center of the lane and gently guides you back on track. Adaptive cruise control is an excellent feature for commuters. It alters your speed according to traffic flow, slowing down or speeding up when the car in front of you does.
