CR-V vs HR-V: What’s in a Name?Honda HR-V Cabin

Quite a lot, actually! The “Comfortable Runabout Vehicle” and the “Hi-rider Revolutionary Vehicle,” more commonly known as the 2019 CR-V and HR-V, occupy two different segments. The former is a compact SUV and the latter is an even smaller subcompact SUV.

There’s a difference in cabin size, obviously. Both vehicles seat five people and can accommodate adults in their back seats. The CR-V can seat three kids or adults across with 49.5 inches of hiproom. The HR-V is suitable for three kids or two adults in the back seat, with 47.4 inches of hiproom.

Space for cargo presents the most noticeable difference between the two SUVs. The CR-V is appropriate for adventures that demand more gear, while the HR-V is ideal for less intensive excursions:

All-Star Performance Specifications

Honda CR-V Performance The Honda CR-V and Honda HR-V are excellent all-around performers, weighing efficiency and handling above all else.

In the CR-V, an available turbo 4-cylinder engine (190 horsepower) delivers an EPA-estimated 28 city/34 highway MPG for 2WD EX, EXL, & Touring trims.1 You’ll see those same figures from the only powerplant in the HR-V, a 141 horsepower 4-cylinder. Take your adventures farther with fewer stops to refuel.

The turbo engine in the CR-V makes for a somewhat peppier drive, though this SUV leans more toward comfort than sport and agility. The HR-V, meanwhile, has sharp, well-weighted steering that makes for more engaging handling. It’s the perfect city SUV for crowded streets and sharp corners!
