2021 Honda HR-V vs. 2021 Nissan Kicks

Subcompact crossover SUVs are growing in popularity for any of several reasons. The Honda entry into this class is the HR-V. It offers a slim footprint on the road, efficient performance and a very adaptable interior. A comparison between the 2021 Honda HR-V vs. 2021 Nissan Kicks will show that while there might be a lot of choices in this emerging vehicle segment, not all of them will be able to meet the needs of owners. The 2021 Honda HR-V is available at Meridian Honda and it can be found in up to four trim grades, LX, Sport, EX and EX-L. Each of those variations of the 2021 HR-V offer more interior cargo volume and higher performance specifications than its Nissan rival. Customers can start the pre-ordering process for the 2021 Honda HR-V today by calling, 601-693-4651.

Any crossover SUV is going to be evaluated by how much room is available for people and cargo inside the vehicle. Both the 2021 HR-V and 2021 Kicks will have two rows of seats that will be able to hold five passengers each. The driver and front passenger in either subcompact crossover SUV will have very similar legroom dimensions, but people sitting in the back of the 2021 Honda HR-V will have an additional 6 inches of legroom than people in the rear of the 2021 Kicks. This same paradigm holds true when the rear seat of both vehicles is holding people. Folding the back seat down in the HR-V LX with front-wheel-drive can have up to 58.8 cubic-feet of cargo volume. The 2021 Nissan Kicks can offer a maximum of 32.3 cubic-feet.
