At first glance, it may appear as though the Honda HR-V and the Toyota C-HR are equivalent options to consider in the subcompact crossover SUV market. After all, these smaller SUVs both have great features, passenger seating for five adults and trendy appeal. As similar as they are on the surface, you will find that notable differences may make one SUV a more attractive option for you to take home. These are some of the leading areas to focus on as you make a solid comparison.


If you plan to spend a lot of time behind the wheel of your new subcompact crossover SUV, you need to find an SUV that performs well on a daily basis. The Honda HR-V is available in two powertrain options, and this provides you with the flexibility to control your driving experience. These are a 1.5-liter i-VTEC design and a 1.8-liter design. The HR-V for 2019 is only available with an automatic CVT, which Honda has improved over last year’s model. You can choose between a front-wheel drive or an all-wheel drive. When you look at the C-HR, you will find that this SUV is only available with a 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder engine and a CVTi-S transmission across all three trim levels for 2019. In addition, front-wheel drive is the only option.


When you compare dimensions of these two SUVs, you will find that the Toyota model is longer and wider, but the Honda model is taller. You may think that this would give you more interior space in the Toyota, but this is not the case. The Honda HR-V has almost 17 cubic feet of additional passenger space compared to the Toyota C-HR. Both of these SUVs have a full range of exceptional features at the base level as well as many additional features at the higher trim levels. In the base Honda HR-V, you will find a 5-inch color touchscreen, Bluetooth streaming audio, remote entry, climate control, a rearview camera with dynamic guidelines and more. The C-HR’s base trim level comes with climate control, Entune 3.0 audio with a color touchscreen, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, remote keyless entry and several other features.


If you look at the C-HR against the HR-V closely, you will notice that the two vehicles have a similar profile. However, the front-end of the HR-V is prominent while the front-end of the C-HR fades downward sharply. The 2019 HR-V received a facelift, so its grille, bumpers, LED headlights and taillights all have an updated look. The Toyota C-HR was only released in 2018. While it has a fresh, modern look, it carries its exterior style forward from the previous model year.

Now that you have compared the 2019 Honda HR-V against the 2019 Toyota C-HR in detail, you can see that the Honda offers exceptional benefits. However, it is important that you see the differences for yourself. Make plans to stop by our Honda dealership soon so that you can compare the HR-V trims against the C-HR during a test drive.
