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.
