Starting MSRP

As far as cost-effective crossovers go, the new HR-V and new CR-V play the part well:

  • 2018 Honda CR-V LX 2WD: Starting MSRP of $24,150*

Performance & Fuel Economy

Under the hood of the 2018 HR-V, you’ll find a 141-hp 1.8L inline-4 engine. You can choose between a standard manual or optional Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). The CR-V, on the other hand, comes with a 184-hp 2.4L inline-4 engine and a standard CVT. Properly equipped, the CR-V tows up to 1,500 pounds with 2WD. Both offer great fuel economy ratings:

  • HR-V LX with CVT: EPA-estimated 28 mpg city/34 mpg highway**
  • CR-V LX with CVT: EPA-estimated 26 mpg city/32 mpg highway***

The CR-V is the more powerful option while the HR-V values higher city/highway mpg ratings. Both offer features like optional Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System, Eco Assist System, and Active Noise Cancellation.

Utility Features & Space

  • 60/40-split-folding rear seats
  • Front power outlets (two)
  • Light for the cargo area

One of the main differences is that the CR-V’s slightly larger size gives you and your passengers more wiggle room, as well as extra space in the cargo area. With their rear seats folded down, the HR-V and CR-V offer 58.8 and 75.8 cubic feet, respectively.
