2019 Honda HR-V vs 2019 Toyota C-HR

2019 Honda HR-V vs 2019 Toyota C-HR

Since its introduction just a couple of years ago, the HR-V has been making waves in the fastest-growing segment on the automotive market. The little subcompact crossover might be small in stature but it’s a juggernaut in the segment. Another recently introduced model making waves in the class is the Toyota C-HR, a uniquely designed subcompact crossover itself. We thought we’d find out how the two measure up to one another by pitting the 2019 Honda HR-V vs 2019 Toyota C-HR in a side-by-side comparison.

2019 Honda HR-V Vs 2019 Toyota C-HR
141 HP Horsepower 144 HP
2,902 lbs. Curb Weight 3,300 lbs.
7.6 l/100km Combined Fuel Efficiency 8.1 l/100km
24.3 cu. ft. Cargo Capacity 19.0 cu. ft.

Advantages of the 2019 HR-V

To do so, we’ve compiled some of the pertinent specifications into the table above, so we can really see how they measure up to one another side by side. Unfortunately, the first row starts off with a tiny advantage in the C-HR’s favor, as it delivers an extra 3 HP. Even the most observant automobile driver would have a hard time noticing that difference; however, the second row shows that the HR-V weighs nearly 400 pounds less than the C-HR, evening things out even more if not tipping the scales in the HR-V’s favor in terms of power. Why’s that? Because the less a vehicle weighs, the less power it needs to do the same things as a heavier vehicle.

The third and fourth rows show much clearer advantages, both of which are in the Honda HR-V’s favor. Firstly, the C-HR utilizes a half litre more fuel to travel the same 100 kilometres as the HR-V. Then to make matters worse for it, it offers 5.3 cubic feet less space to fill with whatever cargo you need to bring along with you on the road. That’s unfortunate for the Toyota but goes to show just how superior the Honda HR-V is to one of its fierce new competitors.
