The compact SUV is a relatively new segment that is showing great interest among car buyers. With many of the benefits of an SUV such as greater ease of access, more cargo room, and a different style, but without the drawbacks of poorer fuel economy and a size that limits maneuverability, the compact SUV just hits a sweet spot for many. Toyota and Honda both compete in this segment with the C-HR and HR-V, and though they are named similarly, they are very different beasts, and we believe that the Toyota comes out on top. See what we mean with our 2020 Toyota C-HR vs 2020 Honda HR-V comparison here or, if you are looking for a C-HR in the Los Angeles area, check out our new C-HR inventory at Toyota of Lancaster by following the link below.
Compact SUVs often forgo power for a rather muted driving experience. However, that is not the case with the C-HR which gives you a small boost in horsepower and a significant boost in torque. These differences may seem subtle, but they will not go unnoticed in a vehicle of this size.
When it comes to features, the C-HR just gives you more right from the get-go. You get a standard adaptive cruise control which will adapt your vehicle’s speed to the speed of traffic and adjust your speed back up once the traffic in front of you clears or speeds up.
Additionally, the C-HR provides superior comfort for both the driver and front passenger with a standard dual-zone automatic climate control system. This is not available at all on the HR-V, which does include a single-zone automatic climate control system, but only at higher trim levels.
Lastly, the C-HR, as with every Toyota model, comes with 2 years or 25,000 miles of free maintenance through ToyotaCare. This is a standard maintenance plan that takes care of your oil changes, tire rotations, and more. You do not get this benefit with the HR-V.
