2017 Honda HR-V vs 2017 Subaru Crosstrek
Now in its sophomore year, the 2017 Honda HR-V has a year of experience under its belt to add to all of its great specifications and features. But how does it compare to a similar vehicle that’s been on the road much longer? We thought we’d find out and share the results with you by comparing the 2017 Honda HR-V vs 2017 Subaru Crosstrek right here on our website. We found that the two vehicle are quite comparable to one another, but each has its own advantages.
Advantages of the 2017 Honda HR-V
For instance, the table above highlights some of the most important aspects in crossovers like these two, whether subcompact like the HR-V or compact like the Crosstrek. The first row takes a look at the combined average of both highway and city fuel efficiency. The combined fuel economy rating showcases that the HR-V utilizes roughly 0.8 litres less fuel per 100 kilometres. That will translate to quite a bit of savings in the long term, but generally means a vehicle might give up some power.
This is confirmed in the second row, as the Honda HR-V offers 7 less horsepower than the Subaru Crosstrek. However, not depicted here in the table, the HR-V weighs 221 lbs. less than its competitor. The less a vehicle weighs, the less power it needs to make the same movements as a heavier, more powerful vehicle. So here, those 7 horses might as well be nonexistent.
Space is obviously just as important, if not more so, than any other specifications in crossovers like these. That’s why it’s huge that the last two rows show the HR-V’s extra 1 cubic foot of space in the cargo hold and extra 4.6 cu. ft. of space in the cabin for you and your passengers to stretch out and get comfortable in.
