2021 Honda HR-V vs 2021 Toyota C-HR

2021 Honda HR-V Exterior Driver Side Front Angle vs 2021 Toyota C-HR Exterior Passenger Side Front Angle

Over the past several years, the subcompact crossover segment has grown exponentially. It’s been a part of the industry for a while, but it wasn’t until a few years ago that it blossomed into its own, becoming one of the fastest-growing automotive segments in memory. Two models that certainly helped it along were the Honda HR-V – which was introduced for the 2016 model year – and the Toyota C-HR – which followed in 2018. Both are small utility vehicles with plenty of style and versatility, but how do the two 2021 model year vehicles measure up to one another?

It doesn’t take long at all to see just how similar these two utility vehicles are to one another. Naturally, each one has its own difference in style, but both are packed full of a surprising amount of content comparable to one another. So, one might think it would come down to the specifications, but as you can see from the table above there isn’t much of a difference between the two models.

We started off looking at the powertrain in the first half of the table, first with power than fuel economy. The Toyota C-HR is the victor in both of these areas, but neither offers much of an advantage. 3 horsepower and a single extra mile per gallon combined would hardly be noticeable in either case, but they are advantages, nonetheless.

In the second half of the table, we turned to that versatile space each one offers. Obviously, both models offer seating for up to 5, but how much cargo space do they offer? Behind the rear seats, the HR-V does get the crown, by offering 4.1 cubic feet of extra space. This is the most sizable advantage in either models favor, but is the extra space enough to convince you one way or the other?
