Honda HR-V

The primary purpose of any vehicle is to transport you reliably wherever you and your passengers want to go. That’s why it’s a good idea to ensure its equipped motor has the capability you need for your drives.

Power Meets Efficiency

The goal of the Toyota C-HR and the Honda HR-V is to get you from Point A to Point B without a fuss. When looking at the performance attributes of each crossover, you’ll see a lot of similarities. For example, both models utilize a 4-cylinder engine. Power outputs are close, too, with each model producing over 140 horsepower.

Next, let’s look at fuel efficiency. Once again, you’ll notice a pattern. With its 2-wheel drive trims, the Honda HR-V earns an EPA-estimated 26 city/32 highway MPG.* Meanwhile, the Toyota C-HR offers an EPA-estimated 27 city/31 highway MPG. While close, when you’re cruising the open highway, you’ll travel farther and longer in the Honda.

Divisive Drivetrains

Is there anything else about performance to split the pair? The defining difference stems from their drivetrains. Toyota only offers the C-HR with front-wheel drive. The Honda HR-V also comes with front-wheel drive but can be had with a Real Time AWD system featuring an Intelligent Control System™. The Honda AWD format will deliver far more traction in wet or slippery conditions than the front-wheel architecture of the Toyota.

Stepping up to a crossover as opposed to a sedan offers the benefit of more interior space. That means traits such as passenger and cargo room become increasingly important when comparing the Honda HR-V and the Toyota C-HR. So, which one wins out?

Cargo Space

Well, the cargo space comparison isn't even close. With the Toyota crossover, you're working with just 19.1 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row and 37 cubic feet of cargo room with that second row folded flat.

The Honda HR-V easily surpasses its opponent by offering 24.4 cubic feet of cargo capacity behind the second row and 55.1 cubic feet of cargo capacity overall.

Passenger Room

So maybe the Toyota crossover makes up for its limited cargo space by offering tremendous passenger room? Not exactly. The HR-V provides 98.7 cubic feet of total passenger volume, compared to the 84 cubic feet found in the C-HR.

What does that mean as far as your and your passengers’ comfort? The chart below shows how their cabin interiors match up:

HR-V Dimensions
2022 C-HR Dimensions
Front Headroom 39.4 inches 38.1 inches
Front Shoulder Room 56.6 inches 49 inches
Rear Shoulder Room 55.2 inches 52.5 inches
Rear Legroom 37.7 inches 31.7 inches









Honda HR-V

Whether you’re flying solo or traveling with your entire crew, having access to in-vehicle technology is important. After all, it enables you to remain informed, be entertained, and stay in touch with loved ones. The Honda HR-V and the Toyota C-HR each offer a selection of sophisticated technology features within their cabins.

Infotainment on Board

Each crossover SUV includes a dashboard-mounted touchscreen display that’s used to select your media options. The HR-V is available with a 9-inch screen, while the C-HR maxes out at eight inches. Their media options include AM/FM radio, USB/auxiliary inputs used for portable media players, and even Bluetooth® for hands-free calling and audio streaming. The HR-V also includes Speed-Sensitive Volume Compensation, which adjusts audio levels as the engine gets louder.

Each vehicle offers smartphone connectivity through Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. These features will integrate your phone into the touchscreen display and give you direct access to your apps, contacts, text messages, media, and more! You’ll be able to easily select your phone’s features from the screen, so you can always stay connected.

Remote Connected Services

Additionally, the Honda HR-V offers HondaLink®. This feature connects the HR-V to an app on your phone. From there, you’ll be able to check mileage and fuel, remotely start your vehicle, unlock it, or even locate where you parked it. This app also lets you schedule upcoming service appointments.
