Both the 2019 Honda CR-V and 2019 Honda HR-V are machines with few weaknesses. Choosing between the two ultimately comes down to personal needs. As the bigger vehicle, the 2019 Honda CR-V boasts absolutely monstrous cargo room and additional horsepower. The ride-quality is blissfully smooth. The 2019 Honda HR-V, inversely, has a lower starting price and higher fuel-economy. Some drivers may find the more compact dimensions easier to maneuver as well.

The 2019 Honda HR-V also gets praised for roomy seating, top-level fuel economy, and a high-quality interior. It endures crashes, should things come to that, with surprising grace (still, we don’t recommend them). There’s a variety of changes for 2019- the HR-V gets refreshed exterior style, adds on Sport and Touring trims, offers a changed-up touch screen with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a Volume knob, and optional Honda Sensing Safety features.
