Vehicle Comparison Rundown

Let’s take a look at two Honda SUVs. The Honda HR-V is a subcompact SUV, while the Honda CR-V a larger compact SUV. Both are available with front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.

Outside and in, the HR-V is the smaller vehicle. This means less cargo capacity for hauling items, but it also results in better fuel economy and makes it a little easier to park. It costs less than the CR-V, as well. The HR-V is a good choice for a city-dwelling single or couple, and can accommodate one or possibly two small children in the back seat.

The CR-V is larger, boxier and has more interior space. It’s a better choice for a growing family, or if you have serious cargo-hauling needs. It’s also much quieter inside, and will give you a smoother ride overall. In addition, the CR-V is available with more upscale optional features like a power tailgate, power seats, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, and a premium audio system.

It all comes down to this: How much Honda SUV do you need?
