2019 Honda HR-V vs 2019 Toyota C-HR near New Castle, PA


Instead of spending hours poring over each and every subcompact crossover in extensive detail on your own, get in touch with Apostolakis Honda to learn more about our personal recommendation - the 2019 Honda HR-V. Due to its balanced performance, spacious interior, and generous accommodations, this model is ready to take on all contenders, including the 2019 Toyota C-HR. Keep reading to see which one comes out on top!


One of the best parts about owning a subcompact crossover is accessing both competitive fuel economy and thrilling off-roading capabilities. At least, the 2019 HR-V certainly fits the bill in this regard, achieving up to 28/34 MPG city/hwy1 to keep away from the pump for longer periods of time than the Toyota C-HR. With this set of wheels, you'll only reach 27/31 MPG city/hwy2, which could slow things down. Furthermore, the C-HR only comes with FWD, so you'll have a harder time tackling slick or uneven terrain. Thankfully, each trim of the HR-V can be equipped with the Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ for outstanding handling and traction when conditions are less than ideal.

Interior Space

When some people hear the phrase "subcompact", they fear that they'll be cramped or uncomfortable in such a vehicle. Should you choose to take home the 2019 Honda HR-V, this won't be the case in the slightest! Those riding up front will feel cozy and relaxed with 56.8 inches of shoulder room, whereas your rear-seat guests can stretch out as they please in 39.3 inches of legroom. Unfortunately for fans of Toyota, the 2019 C-HR falls well short of these dimensions, providing just 49.0 inches of front shoulder room and a cramped 31.7 inches for rear leg space. The story doesn't improve for the Toyota when we examine cargo capacity, as the HR-V easily comes out ahead with 58.8 cubic ft. of maximum storage space3 to the C-HR's underwhelming 36.4 cubic ft. of room4.


Finally, let's examine what sorts of conveniences come with the Honda HR-V and Toyota C-HR. Although both models offer smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay™5, only the crossover from Honda accounts for individuals with a Google-powered device by also offering Android Auto™6 capabilities. If you end up with the C-HR, you won't find this feature anywhere! Similarly, the vehicle from Honda allows you to add a one-touch power moonroof in the EX, EX-L, and Touring trims, so you can let in some fresh air or warm rays of sun on your way to Gaston Park. Once again, with no such upgrade available in any tier of the Toyota C-HR, individuals who take this vehicle home won't be able to help but feel a bit disappointed.

Now that you have the facts about the 2019 Honda HR-V vs 2019 Toyota C-HR near New Castle, PA, you should understand why the HR-V is the superior set of wheels. To put our assessment to the test, pay a visit to Apostolakis Honda at 3156 Elm Rd. in Cortland, OH, today!
