2017 Honda HR-V vs 2018 Toyota C-HR
Drivers looking for a small and fuel-efficient commuting vehicle with an attractive aesthetic may be intrigued by a compact crossover. This class of vehicle offers a taller ride height and optimized interior space compared to a small car, without costing drivers too much more at the gas pump. In this 2017 Honda HR-V vs 2018 Toyota C-HR comparison, we are going to look at the top trims of two attractive contenders in this category. While the Honda HR-V is a tried and true model, the Toyota C-HR is all new for this year.
In this comparison we are going to explore the top-of-the-line 2017 Honda HR-V EX-L Navi trim, and the 2018 Toyota C-HR XLE Premium model. While these two vehicles are very close in starting MSRP, the Honda model offers several standard features that are not available on the Toyota challenger. Leather upholstery and a navigation system are standard on the 2017 HR-V EX-L Navi and not available on the 2018 Toyota C-HR. The 2017 Honda HR-V is also available with all-wheel drive, which is not an option on the 2018 C-HR.

Cargo Space on the 2017 Honda HR-V
While both the 2017 Honda HR-V EX-L Navi and the 2018 Toyota C-HR XLE Premium have room for five passengers, there is a significant difference in how much cargo they can hold. The 2017 Honda HR-V has 24.3 cubic feet of space available behind the rear seats, which can expand out to 58.8 cubic feet with the rear seats folded. In contrast, the 2018 Toyota C-HR has a maximum cargo space of just 36.4 cubic feet, and just 19 cubic feet with all the seats up. While the 2018 C-HR XLE Premium has a slightly more powerful engine than the 2017 Honda HR-V EX-L Navi, the Honda crossover offers a small advantage in fuel efficiency, which may pay off in fuel savings over time.
Standard features in both of these models include automatic climate control, a rearview camera, and blind-spot monitoring. For more information on this 2017 Honda HR-V vs 2018 Toyota C-HR comparison, or to explore the 2017 Honda HR-V in Oklahoma City OK, contact a member of the Battison Honda team.
