Advantages of the 2018 HR-V
In the table atop this page, we highlighted a few of the most important specifications to consider when shopping for any vehicle. In our opinion, the best way to show you the similarities and differences between the two vehicles would be to work our way down row by row, so that’s what we’re going to do – starting with the first row, which analyzes fuel efficiency. Surprisingly enough, the HR-V and Encore actually offer the exact same average when it comes to combined fuel efficiency. So neither vehicle offers superior savings at the pump.
The HR-V does, however, offer more in the way of power, as the second and third rows depict. While the HR-V only actually generated 3 extra horsepower, the fact that it weighs almost 350 pounds less means it can do more with less power, so that 3-HP advantage is actually expanded even further.
2018 Honda HR-V
2018 Buick Encore
|8.4 l/100km||Combined Fuel Efficiency||8.4 l/100km|
|141 HP||Horsepower||138 HP|
|2,888 lbs.||Curb Weight||3,237 lbs.|
|24.3 cu. ft.||Cargo Capacity||18.8 cu. ft.|
Finally, when it comes to space, the HR-V offers more room for your cargo. If that wasn’t important to you, then you probably wouldn’t be looking at a crossover in the first place. So the fact that the HR-V offers 5.5 extra cubic feet of space for luggage, groceries or whatever it is you need to bring along with you should be a pretty exciting fact.
