2016 Honda HR-V vs 2015 Honda CR-V

With an ever expanding list of SUV and crossover options, even within the Honda lineup itself, we find that it is important to inform drivers of the different options available and why some may be better for certain driving needs. To make it even easier to pick a new Honda, we have compared the 2015 Honda CR-V vs the 2016 Honda HR-V. Both vehicles offer a similar level of fuel efficiency as well as the option for all-wheel drive on every trim level, though they do differ in a few ways.

The Honda CR-V offers a few more options for features along with a more powerful engine and more interior volume. Someone that constantly finds themself pushing the capacity of the interior to it’s limits may want to consider the CR-V. On the other hand a driver that is after a capable daily driver that still leaves you feeling confident in the snow, the HR-V offers a better size for city driving and greater fuel efficiency.

Both of these crossover options from Honda, though they do differ in size and some performance aspects, bring the drive quality that you have come to expect from the brand. With continuously variable transmissions, the fun-to-drive sensation of the powerful engines is also quite smooth and as we already mentioned, efficient for an crossover. And though the HR-V hasn’t been rated yet, the CR-V is an IIHS T0p Safety Pick+ and we expect a similar rating for the smaller crossover.

The HR-V and CR-V also have quite a bit to offer in terms of features. The CR-V offers the option for Honda LaneWatch and front crash prevention technology along with quite a few upscale features. In comparison, the HR-V offers the Honda Magic Seats, which can be easily adjusted for better use of the available space in the interior. Each vehicle offers different features and nuances, to get a better feel for them you can view the inventory online or stop by Planet Honda for a test drive.
