2016 Honda HR-V vs. Chevy Trax
The dawn of the compact crossover is upon us. With new models like the Honda HR-V and the Chevy Trax capturing the attention of car shoppers across Canada, you'll soon see more of these small utility vehicles on Edmonton roads. As the category continues to grow, so does competition. With more drivers looking to the compact crossover segment, we'll put a couple of the top models side-by-side to help distinguish some key attributes. In this comparison, we'll put the all-new 2016 Honda HR-V vs Chevy Trax.
At first glance, the exterior of these two compact crossovers is quite different. The 2016 Honda HR-V features styling reminiscent to a coupe, with a lower roof and a sleeker design. With design cues borrowed from the Honda CR-V, the HR-V is one of the best looking crossovers on the road. The Trax, on the other hand, looks a bit more compact and features more gently rounded curves rather than the sweeping creases of the HR-V.
Key Differences Between Honda HR-V and Chevy Trax
The Honda HR-V and Chevy Trax generate similar power from their 4-cylinder engines. The Honda HR-V houses a 1.8-litre four-cylinder engine that produces 138 horsepower and 127 pound-feet of torque. That engine will team with a continuously variable transmission or an available six-speed unit to help the HR-V achieve 6.7 L/100 km on the highway and 8.4 L/100 km city. In terms of balancing performance and efficiency, those ratings are among of the major benefits to choosing the Honda HR-V over the Chevy Trax.
Behind the power of its 1.4-litre four-cylinder engine, the Chevy Trax matches the HR-V's horsepower rating of 138, but offers a bit more torque. However, that comes with a fairly significant sacrifice in efficiency, as the Trax is rated for 6.9 L/100 km on the highway and 9.1 L/100 km in the city.
