Both the Honda HR-V and the Toyota C-HR interest many drivers. From Santa Ana and Tustin to Mission Viejo, California, and beyond, folks have been asking our team about these two SUVs.
And that’s exactly why our Norm Reeves Honda Superstore Irvine team wrote this crossover comparison between the Honda HR-V vs. Toyota C-HR. We urge you to check it out and then get in touch with us to schedule your test drive. Let’s get started!
After driving the Honda HR-V for a couple weeks, most people notice just how efficient it is—usually by how much they’re saving at the pump. With fuel economy ratings of up to an EPA-estimated 28 city/34 highway MPG for 2WD CVT trims, it’s very impressive for a crossover SUV.1
On the other hand, the Toyota C-HR model’s fuel economy specifications aren’t quite as impressive. The costs of 27 city/31 highway MPG might start to add up over time. 2
Now, we’ll head right under the hood and take a look at what powers these two SUVs. When it comes to engine specs, these two models are pretty evenly matched.
The Honda HR-V provides a standard In-Line 4-cylinder engine that puts out 141 horsepower and 127 lb-ft of torque capability. Over in the C-HR, you’ll find the standard 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine, which puts out 144 horsepower. So, as you can see, they’re neck and neck.
Where these two models start to differ is when it comes to traction and stability control. While both models come standard with a front-wheel drive system, only one offers the ability to choose an all-wheel drivetrain, and that’s the HR-V.
Whether you’re going on an off-roading adventure camping trip, or heading up to the snowy mountains, the HR-V is ready to be your partner no matter where you’re headed.
When it comes to the Honda HR-V vs. Toyota C-HR, you’ll want an SUV equipped with a plethora of features that are sure to keep you nice and comfortable no matter how long the drive ahead. The HR-V certainly delivers on the that front:
The C-HR does offer a similar feature to the Automatic Climate Control with Electrostatic Touch-Screen system, but it’s not nearly as advanced.
Finally, we’ll take a look at the safety and security features these models come equipped with. They work together to provide you with more peace of mind when you’re behind the wheel.
The HR-V offers a Honda Sensing® Safety & Driver Assisted Technologies system, which will help keep you and your family as safe as possible while you’re out there on the road.
This feature helps you mitigate or avoid frontal collisions by automatically applying braking pressure in the event of an emergency. It’ll monitor the vehicles, pedestrians, and cyclists traveling ahead of you, and alert you if it senses you rapidly approaching them.
You’ll stay securely in the center of your lane, thanks to this feature. It can determine if you cross over detected lane lines without signaling, and then provide gentle steering corrections or braking to get you back on the right path.
ACC is ideal for highway commuters. It helps you maintain a set following interval behind the vehicles traveling ahead of you, and will automatically slow down or speed up your HR-V depending on the flow of traffic.
The Lane Keeping Assist System is constantly providing subtle steering adjustments to keep you directly in the center of your lane.
The Multi-Angle Rearview Camera comes with standard guidelines, but on the Sport trim level and above, this feature includes Dynamic Guidelines, which allow you to switch between different views.
While the C-HR offers some similar features, there’s not nearly as many available to you. Feel free to have a conversation with our teammates about which safety suite would work better with your lifestyle.
