2019 Honda HR-V vs. 2019 Toyota CH-R

The inventory of new Honda crossover SUVs available at the Meridian Honda showroom is one of the most diverse any original equipment manufacturer has to offer. Buyers looking for something that has many of the best traits a crossover SUV has to offer while riding on a particularly nimble platform should learn as much as they can about the Honda HR-V. For the new model year, the automaker has introduced some new technology that will give the competition another challenge to deal with. A comparison of the 2019 Honda HR-V vs 2019 Toyota CH-R illustrates just how important the changes Honda has made to the compact Honda crossover SUV are. The 2019 Honda HR-V is currently available at Meridian Honda; customers can schedule a test drive today by calling, 601-693-4651.

For any compact crossover SUV to be successful in this tightly-packed industry segment, it has to be highly adaptable to changing situations. Meridian Honda customers can choose LX, Sport, EX, EX-L versions of the 2019 HR-V with all-wheel-drive. The Touring trim offers it as standard equipment. Naturally, this will give those behind the wheel a bit more peace of mind on wet or slippery roads. The 2019 Toyota CH-R does not offer all-wheel-drive on any of its trims. The ability to pair today’s most popular smartphone platforms to a vehicle’s infotainment system is all but ubiquitous. However, of the two compact crossover SUVs, only the 2019 HR-V is compatible with both Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ above the entry-level LX trim. The 2019 CH-R is only available with Apple CarPlay™ on a few of its trims.

How much cargo space does it have?

Another important area where the 2019 Honda HR-V is able to outperform the 2019 Toyota CH-R is available cargo space. This advantage of available cargo space for the 2019 HR-V will apply to all five its trim grades LX, Sport, EX, EX-L and Touring. In terms of available passenger capacity, the Honda and Toyota compact crossover SUVs are evenly matched, both feature seats for up to five. However, when a driver needs to do some cargo-hauling, the 2019 HR-V is arguably better-suited to the task compared to its Toyota rivals. When the rear seats are deployed for passengers, there is more than 24 cubic-feet of cargo volume to use, that is expandable to 58.8 cubic-feet. The Toyota CH-R leaves fewer than 20 cubic-feet when people are sitting in the back seat and it can only be configured to offer just more than 36 cubic-feet.
