Performance and Efficiency

When comparing Honda's popular compact car and crossover models in efficiency and performance, drivers will find there's not much separating these two Honda models. The 2022 Honda Civic takes the performance and efficiency edge, though, thanks to its more powerful standard and available engine and more aerodynamic design.

Whether you select a 2022 Honda Civic with a 158-hp 2.0-liter engine or a 180-hp 1.5-liter turbocharged engine, the Honda compact car excels in efficiency both in city and highway driving.

Every 2022 Honda HR-V is powered by a singular engine option, Honda's dependable 1.8-liter inline 4-cylinder, generating a healthy 141 horsepower.

Although the HR-V crossover is taller and boasts a more versatile interior than the Civic, it tips the scales slightly heavier than its compact car sibling. The result is the HR-V still returns great city and highway fuel economy, especially for a crossover!

While the 2022 Honda Civic is more powerful and fuel-efficient, the more versatile 2022 Honda HR-V is not far behind in either category. So if you're looking for the most performance and efficiency from your new Honda, the Civic is a great choice. However, if versatility matters just as much as efficient performance, you may also want to consider the HR-V.
