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!

I was contacted and informed that I heeded new filters when I brought in my car for oil change. I appreciated that and I gave Jordan my consent to replace the filters . My car is always clean when I pick it up which I love!! The best part is the communication from service department. Everyone is very kind and courteous! Thank you, Fischer Honda

i sorta soured on going to Victory in Plymouth where i bought my HR-V, two yrs ago.. for it's first oil change... i have a good friend who is a master Honda mechanic i go to... they left my cowl loose under the filter and didn't put the caps back on my tire stems causing my trip to Pennsylvania a bit of concern for me in February... but, Fischer for $20 bucks even washed my car, plugged the hissing tire, and even made the fronts 32 lbs, and backs 30 like i asked for Winter... i'll use them as i live in Ypsi and they are much closer... don't even ask me about my treatment at Germain by their sales staff... thank you, Todd Van Allen for your service advise!

Called Service because we noticed a substance leaking from our CRV. Todd said they could look at it the next day, but I was concerned and asked if I could bring it in that day just in case everything leaked out and I would have to tow the car. He said sure. I brought it in and Service got right on it. What a relief to find out it was just an overflow from the heating/cooling system. But I appreciated it so much that I didn't have to wait and wonder thanks to Todd and the Service Dept. No charge.

I have dealt with this dealership for more years that I can count. I live in Ann Arbor but choose to make the drive to Ypsi for a number of reasons. I have dealt with sales rep Mike Mirza for years, he has always treated me fairly and I feel lucky to have found him. I lease so my oil changes are free and the service employees are very respectful and patient. It is an overall positive experience for a necessity that we all must do every so often in dealing with our vehicles.

The service center is efficient and good at estimated wait times. They always fit us in even though we can only get the card in on Saturdays and the phone and desk reps are friendly. I have also waited in the wait room with kids before and they try and help you as best they can to make it less stressful. It's a nice customer service touch.

Every time I come in to Fischer Honda, I am always given fantastic service. Throughout the visit there is always an attentive service person to answer my questions. From the first day Joshua Greer my salesman made sure I was happy with my new Honda. When it was time for my oil changes, washes, interior cleaning, Jordan, & the service crew treated my vehicle like the baby I call it. I refuse take my vehicle to any other Handa Dealership and I have had a Honda before this one. I am glad I found Fischer Honda of Ypsilanti, Michigan.

We've taken our cars to the local dealer for maintenance since buying our 2008 fit with excellent results, i.e., almost no unexpected maintenance needed. It's very convenient, because we can drop the car off, do errands in town or walk back later to pick up.

I had a very good experience at Fischer Honda. I found the car I ended up buying online through Carfax. My first contact at the dealership was a woman named Stephanie who was very accomodating and friendly. She answered all my questions and, through her, I made an appointment to see the vehicle a few days later with a salesperson named Mike Mirza. He, also, was very accomodating. I made a 3+ hour drive from Ohio to Michigan to look at the vehicle. As I was looking at the vehicle, I saw what I thought was a huge crack in the body of the vehicle, so Mike, the sales guy, called the manager out to look at it. It was a protective coating, not a crack, and I was relieved, but the experience after that with the manager was annoying. He was VERY high pressure. Wanted me to sign on the dotted line RIGHT NOW. Since I came from out of state, I had some logistical issues to conquer and I really just wanted to give it some thought. To be clear, he also was very accomodating with some of the issues I had, but I finally had to tell him flat-out that I didn't appreciate being pressured, and he walked away. After that, I dealt solely with Mike Mirza, and he understood all of my concerns. I went home, thought about it, and called a couple of days later to tell him I had decided to buy the vehicle. Everything after that went very smoothly. I drove the vehicle home five days later and I'm a satisfied customer, all in all.

Went in for a minor repair, and asked that the technician show me how it was done, so I could do it myself in the future. He was very solicitous about doing this for me, and then had my car washed.
