The 2021 Honda HR-V and the 2021 Toyota C-HR both have a lot to offer consumers, but they go about fulfilling needs in very different ways. The Honda HR-V, for example, puts the emphasis on comfort, versatility, and safety. The C-HR is focused on driving pleasure and style. Still, when it comes to tangible comparisons in areas that matter most to consumers, the 2021 Honda HR-V has the 2021 Toyota C-HR beat.

Indeed, the HR-V has more space than the C-HR, and it is offered with all-wheel drive, something you won’t find on the 2021 Toyota C-HR.

A More Efficient Engine in the 2021 Honda HR-V

The 2021 Honda HR-V offers a wide range of versions, all are powered by a 1.8-litre four-cylinder engine that delivers 141 horsepower and 127 pound-feet of torque. This engine has an average fuel economy rating of just 8,4 litres per 100 kilometres in the city and 7.0 litres per 100 kilometres on the highway. The Toyota C-HR may have a bit more horsepower (144 horsepower), but you won’t notice the difference on the road. You will, however, notice that the HR-V is much more efficient.

The Toyota C-HR has an average fuel economy rating of 8.7 litres per 100 kilometres in the city and 7.5 litres per 100 kilometres on the highway. Although both vehicles include Continuously Variable Transmissions (CVTs), the HR-V adds shift paddles on the Sport and Touring trims. These provide a more personal driving experience and help you adapt to traffic conditions.

The biggest difference between the 2021 Toyota C-HR and the 2021 Honda HR-V, however, is all-wheel drive. Specifically, the Toyota C-HR isn’t offered with all-wheel drive. The Honda HR-V offers all-wheel drive in all its versions. That’s a huge difference in winter and buyers who want an SUV to enjoy constant grip and traction will need to turn to the HR-V.

Last but not least, the 2021 Honda HR-V is more spacious than the 2021 Toyota C-HR. The HR-V’s 1,665 L of cargo volume exceeds the C-HR’s offer. Even with the rear seats up, the HR-V has 158 L of additional capacity. That’s a huge difference between the C-HR and the HR-V, giving the latter the distinct advantage when It comes to interior space.
