Interior: Passengers and Cargo
If you go with the 2018 HR-V, you and your passengers are going to enjoy a ton of room, whether you're sitting in the front or the back. In terms of the front row, that'll look like 39.5 inches of headroom, 41.2 inches of legroom 56.8 inches of shoulder room, and 53.1 inches of hip room. In terms of the back row, that means 38.3 inches of headroom, 39.3 inches of legroom, 54.5 inches of shoulder room, and 47.4 inches of hip room. In other words, everybody will have the chance to stretch out, relax, and have fun.
On the other hand, if you go with the 2018 CR-V, you're going to enjoy as much room as possible to transport all of your gear for that next camping adventure, music gig, soccer match, or whatever else you do. We're talking about as much as 37.6 cubic feet with all the seats in place, and even as much as 75.8 cubic feet with the second row of seats stowed away. It's time to start planning out the fun.
Engine Power and Performance
Even the base trim levels for both vehicles kick things off with some impressive performance.
For the Honda HR-V LX, that means an In-Line 4-Cylinder Engine that can spit out 141 horsepower/127 lb-ft of torque (and doesn't redline until 6,700 RPM). For the Honda CR-V, that means a Drive-by-Wire Throttle System, Direct Fuel Injection, and available Real Time AWD with an Intelligent Control System®.
Technology: HR-V versus CR-V
Last, but certainly not least, each of these cars is designed and built with safety in mind. That's why they both offer Honda Sensing®, an intelligent suite of safety and driver-assistive features to keep you going.
- Collision Mitigation Braking System™
- Road Departure Mitigation System
- Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow
