If you are looking for a smaller SUV from Honda, you may be wondering what the differences are between the 2019 Honda CR-V and the HR-V. While they have an undeniably appealing exterior design with individualized characteristics from bumper to bumper, there are a few other important differences that you should be aware of. By learning about how these popular SUVs differ, you can more easily decide which vehicle is right for you.


The performance capabilities of these SUVs vary. As a smaller vehicle, the HR-V understandably is equipped with a less powerful engine. All five trims for the HR-V come with an inline 4-cylinder engine that offers 141 horsepower. The base trim for the larger CR-V is equipped with an inline 4-cylinder engine that delivers 184 horsepower. The upper trims for the CR-V feature a turbocharged variation of this powertrain that gives you 190 horsepower. You can expect both SUVs to have anti-lock brakes, direct fuel injection, an Eco Assist feature, an electric parking brake with auto brake hold, a superior suspension system and other equipment that promotes an excellent experience behind the wheel.


The 2019 CR-V and the 2019 HR-V offer passenger seating for five adults. The rear row folds down in both vehicles to provide extra cargo space. The HR-V is a smaller vehicle that offers 100 cubic feet of passenger seating. The CR-V offers slightly more passenger seating space with 105 cubic feet. Likewise, the CR-V's cargo area is slightly larger. Compared to the HR-V, the CR-V is approximately 3 inches taller, 10 inches longer and 3 inches wider. The CR-V's wheel base is also approximately 2 inches longer.


The CR-V is classified as a compact crossover SUV, and it entered its fifth generation in 2017. The HR-V, on the other hand, is a subcompact crossover SUV. It entered its second generation in 2016, and it received a substantial facelift for the 2019 model year. At the base trim, these SUVs both have many similar features. Some of these include speed-sensitive volume control for the audio system, a climate control system, Bluetooth technology, at least a 5-inch LCD screen for the infotainment system, illuminated steering wheel-mounted controls, cloth seating, power windows and doors and more. The CR-V is available in four trims, and the HR-V is available in five trims. Because there are substantial variations in these SUVs from trim to trim, it is important to carefully compare the options that are most appealing to you in detail and with a test drive.

One of the best ways to determine which of these SUV models and trims is a good fit for your needs and wants is to visit our Honda dealership soon for a test drive.
