2016 Honda HR-V vs. 2016 Honda CR-V
Efficiency-minded drivers seeking spacious, versatile vehicles might find what they’re looking for in a crossover. Two great options in Honda’s lineup are the 2016 HR-V and 2016 CR-V, especially if you don’t want the bulk that comes with a full-size SUV.
The 2016 Honda HR-V and Honda CR-V are packed with family-friendly features and creature comforts. Crossover shoppers in Centennial, Aurora, and Denver might find it difficult to choose between the Honda HR-V and CR-V, so Mile High Honda decided to compare their key features below.
Crosshairs of Power and Efficiency
Pop the hood of a Honda HR-V or Honda CR-V and you’ll find an inline four-cylinder engine that delivers a refined, poised ride. Each crossover offers smooth acceleration, though the CR-V’s 2.4-liter engine puts out 40 more horsepower than the Honda HR-V, for a total of 185 horsepower.
However, the all-new 2016 ondHonda HR-V shines when it comes to efficiency. Its 141-horsepower 1.4-liter engine yields an EPA-estimated 28 city/35 highway mpg rating when paired to a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Comparatively, the Honda CR-V gets up to an EPA-estimated 26 city/33 highway mpg.
Entry-level crossover drivers might find the 2016 Honda HR-V’s fuel efficiency enticing. However, the Honda CR-V could be more appropriate for drivers who require extra power for long road trips. Choosing one ultimately comes down to your driving needs, though each delivers a smooth performance you can rely on during your daily trips.
Innovation Meets Utility
With their roomy interiors and seating for five passengers, the 2016 Honda CR-V and Honda HR-V provide plenty of space for kids, car seats, and everything in between. The 2016 Honda CR-V offers 4 more cubic feet of interior volume than the Honda HR-V, but each provides smart, flexible storage options to help organize your stuff.
Inside, the 2016 Honda HR-V and Honda CR-V offer technology features to connect you to the digital world, including standard Bluetooth® and an available 7-inch touchscreen. The 2016 Honda HR-V’s base trim also comes with a standard 5-inch color LCD screen, which isn’t offered on the Honda CR-V.
Envision Yourself Cruising in a Crossover
Entry-level crossover shoppers might be drawn to the Honda HR-V for its efficient performance and generous technology offerings. However, drivers seeking more power and cargo space might prefer the 2016 Honda CR-V.
Either way, the 2016 Honda CR-V and Honda HR-V offer efficient performances, convenient features, and comfortable interiors the entire family will love.
Choosing your next Honda crossover is no easy feat, especially with so many trims and available features to consider. Luckily, Mile High Honda offers several resources to make that decision easier for drivers throughout Centennial, Aurora, and Denver.
