Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Chevrolet Trax than the Honda HR-V. The Honda HR-V offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Trax, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Trax as you will with the Honda HR-V, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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 Chevrolet Trax will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Honda HR-V.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Trax is much slimmer than the Honda HR-V, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Chevrolet Trax, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Honda HR-V.

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

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Chevrolet Trax and the Honda HR-V.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Chevrolet Trax 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 Chevrolet Trax and the Honda HR-V. The Chevrolet Trax has less cargo space than the Honda HR-V, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Chevrolet Trax than that of the Honda HR-V.
