2018 Honda HR-V vs. 2018 Honda CR-V: Choosing Your Honda Crossover

The 2018 Honda HR-V and 2018 Honda CR-V are extremely popular options in the Honda crossover SUV lineup. No matter which one you choose, you’ll enjoy a dependable warranty, efficient performance, and access to features like HondaLink™ smartphone app integration and the Honda Sensing™ driver assistance suite. Still, while these models feature similar technologies and profiles, there are a few differences to consider. Find out which of these models is the best option for your jaunts around Edison, and then visit VIP Honda in North Plainfield for a test drive.


Drivers on a budget might be a bit more drawn to the HR-V thanks to its incredibly accessible starting MSRP:

Performance Specs and EPA Numbers

The 2018 Honda HR-V is powered by a 1.8L four-cylinder engine that makes a sure-footed 141 hp and 127 lb-ft of torque, which it can send to the front wheels or all four via the available all-wheel drive system. This powertrain setup allows the HR-V to get a standard EPA-estimated fuel economy of 34 mpg highway and 28 mpg city**.

By contrast, the base trim of the redesigned 2018 Honda CR-V gets a standard 2.4L four-cylinder engine that makes 184 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque, while all other models get a turbocharged 1.5L inline-four that makes 190 hp and 179 lb-ft of torque. If you upgrade to the turbocharged powertrain, the CR-V can match the HR-V at an EPA-estimated 34 mpg highway and 28 mpg city***. Otherwise, the CR-V’s numbers hover just slightly below that.
