Comparison Review

Comfort
The Buick Envista offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Honda HR-V, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Buick Envista and the Honda HR-V.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Buick Envista will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Honda HR-V.

Dimensions
The Buick Envista is a little narrower than the Honda HR-V, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Buick Envista takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Honda HR-V.

Handling
The Buick Envista has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Honda HR-V, allowing you to much more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Buick Envista has a little less horsepower than the Honda HR-V.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Buick Envista does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Honda HR-V.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Buick Envista and the Honda HR-V. The Buick Envista has significantly less cargo capacity than the Honda HR-V.
