What Are the Differences Between the HR-V and the CR-V?

What Are the Differences Between the HR-V and the CR-V?

2019 Honda CR-V

Sales Hours

If you’ve got your heart set on a Honda crossover but aren’t sure whether to go with the HR-V or the CR-V, we’re here to help at Fischer Honda. Although both vehicles are an excellent choice and will have you satisfied from the moment you hit the road, there are a few differences to keep in mind. To get first-hand experience with both these rides, swing into our dealership at 15 East Michigan Avenue in Ypsilanti, MI.

Size Differences

If you were to put these two crossovers side by side, the first thing you will notice is that the CR-V is about 10 inches longer than the HR-V. That’s because they fit into two different vehicle segments. The HR-V is considered to be a subcompact crossover while the CR-V is considered to be a compact crossover. So, if you’re more comfortable being behind the wheel of smaller vehicles, the HR-V might be the best option for you. That being said, the CR-V is an excellent choice if you plan on bringing passengers along for the ride. Its commodious interior offers 57.9 inches of shoulder room in the front and 55.6 inches of shoulder room in the rear. In comparison, the HR-V offers 56.8 inches of shoulder room in the front and 54.5 inches of shoulder room in the rear.

Power Differences

Whether you choose to go with the CR-V or the HR-V, you can count on getting to your destination with pure exhilaration. Both crossover’s offer plenty of power, but the CR-V offers just a bit more oomph than you’ll get from the HR-V. Roaring beneath the hood of the CR-V is the standard 2.4L 4-cylinder engine that cranks out an impressive 184 horsepower and 180 lb.-ft. of torque. You can also go with the available 1.5L turbocharged engine if you want to access 190 horsepower and 179 lb.-ft. of torque when you push the pedal to the metal. In contrast, The HR-V offers a 1.8L 4-cylinder powertrain that puts you at the helm of sheer power thanks to its 141 horsepower and 127 lb.-ft. of torque.

Fuel Economy

One of the most important factors to consider when you’re choosing between two rides is how much money you’ll save on gas each month. Although both of these Honda crossovers have boast-worthy fuel economies, the HR-V gets a slight edge on the CR-V. When you’ve got the HR-V equipped with the continuously variable transmission, you’ll get a money-saving 28/34/30 MPG city/hwy/combined1 gas mileage rating. The CR-V with the same transmission will get a 26/32/28 MPG city/hwy/combined fuel economy. As you can see, the difference is pretty small. So whichever option you choose, you can look forward to putting money back into your wallet each month.

If you were wondering what are the differences between the HR-V and the CR-V, we hope this article has helped. Ready to put these rides to the test? Then stop by Fischer Honda and join one of our friendly team members on a test drive!

First off shout out to Joshua Campbell (Idk if he works there anymore) who sold me that beautiful Scion back in 2017 when I was in need of a car. Also a huge shout out to Curtis who recently sold me my new car! Both times I came into Fischer Honda, I had a very smooth and stress free experience. I got in and got out within an hour or 2 (my fault if it lasted longer because I didn't have the necessary documents). Curtis was an awesome salesman who didn't talk no more than he needed too and we both had the same views of many situations so it made the process even more smooth and relaxing. When its time for another car, I WILL be going back to Fischer Honda!

My mother went to Fischer Honda today to get a new car. Her salesman was Aaron Smith and he did a fantastic job helping her select the right car for her, making her feel comfortable and helping her to understand all of the technology in the car. She is 72 years old and is intimidated by car dealerships and he put her at ease and she couldn't be happier with her experience! Thank you Aaron and Fischer Honda for excellent service!

Fischer Honda is a friendly, reputable full service dealer. They are honest, do fine work in the service department and are comfortable to deal with in sales. They are trustworthy. I purchased my last car from Kelly in 2006 and am working with her again now on a purchase. My car has been well maintained completely by Fischer. It's been driven a lot but is going to stay in the family as it had lots of life left.

Bring your own financing. Read all your paper work. It's a typical dealer with your typical finance department. Even when you bring your own financing they'll run your credit anyway. To see if they can get you a "better deal". Normally, I would have just told them to forget about. I'll go somewhere else. I knew what I wanted. The pickings for the year make and model I wanted were and are still slim. I was sick of looking. Price was market value. Sales guy was nice.( Brandon) It's a honda you can't got wrong unless you buy a new CR-V.
