Both vehicles have various options and trim levels, but the HR-V is cheaper at the starting trim level, carrying that lower point across its options. If the price is the most important thing for you, be sure to take into consideration which options you really value and which you can live without. Features, technology, and additional packages can impact pricing, so weigh how much each of these means to you.

If those first few seconds of the drive are an important part of your driving experience, you will find more acceleration power with the CR-V. You will see the turbocharged engine thrive whether you are just accelerating from a stop or merging onto the freeway.

If you plan on heading out for long days on the highway, staying comfortable in your seat is a big factor. The HR-V seats are more firm, while the CR-V seats are less so. Each Honda SUV has great leg and headroom for adults, but knowing what your preferences are for seats could go a long way in deciding between these two. Please schedule an appointment with Hendrick Honda of Charleston to see and experience the different seating options.

This factor is important to those who know they often pack their vehicles to the brim. The CR-V is an overall larger vehicle and also has more cargo area. The HR-V sits in the subcompact SUV category, which is reflected in the cargo area that it offers. 

As you can see, there are a lot of highlights for each of these vehicles, but knowing what you want will allow you to make the most informed decision for your unique needs and wants.
