2018 Toyota C-HR vs 2017 Honda HR-V

Despite what you may have heard, there is not much that is easy about choosing your next new vehicle, especially when you have so many options available to you. The subcompact crossover market, for example, is more popular than ever right now, which means you'll have some decisions to make if you're looking for such a vehicle. If you are, we're here to help by comparing the 2018 Toyota C-HR and 2017 Honda HR-V.

These models have different model years simply because at the time of this writing, the 2018 HR-V has not yet been made available, while the C-HR has a headstart on the 2018 model year. Those aren't the only differences found between the two, however, as the C-HR also delivers a bit more horsepower and torque from its engine than the HR-V. Not only that, but the effects on fuel economy are a wash, as the CH-R excels at city driving (which is what a vehicle like this is made for anyway) and the HR-V has a slight edge on highway driving efficiency.
