Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda CR-V than in the Honda HR-V. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Honda CR-V and the Honda HR-V.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda CR-V 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). The Honda CR-V is somewhat more expensive than the Honda HR-V.

Dimensions
The Honda CR-V is a little wider than the Honda HR-V, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Honda CR-V, which is slightly longer than the Honda HR-V.

Handling
The Honda CR-V has the same turning radius as the Honda HR-V, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Honda CR-V has a little more horsepower than the Honda HR-V.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Honda CR-V transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively 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 Honda CR-V and the Honda HR-V. With the Honda CR-V, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Honda HR-V.
