2023 Honda HR-V vs 2022 Honda CR-V

Serving Groton, CT

For drivers in the market for a smaller crossover SUV, the Honda HR-V and the CR-V are often top contenders. These are well-equipped models that both have magnetic styling and excellent capabilities. However, the subcompact HR-V and the compact CR-V have integral differences that could impact your selection. What should you know about these exciting possibilities before making your next purchase at Cardinal Honda?

Performance

A test drive comparison between the 2023 HR-V and the 2022 CR-V will reveal notable differences in their performance capabilities. The 2023 HR-V is a capable vehicle with spirited handling. It receives 158 horsepower from its four-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine. The 2022 CR-V, on the other hand, has a 190-horsepower, turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The top CR-V trim has standard all-wheel drive. Both models come with a continuously variable transmission for all trim levels.

Appearance

The differences between these models continue through their styling. The HR-V is a more compact model that has a bold personality. Its look is defined by rounded corners across a small, downturned grille. The front bumper is rounded and shows off sporty air intakes. The headlights float away from the grille and have an angled-arrow-like style. The HR-V is further defined by substantial, angled contouring across the side doors. The CR-V takes a different approach to its style. It has a larger, hexagon-shaped grille accented by a chrome bar. The bar links the wedge-shaped headlights. The CR-V’s bumper has more definition with a metallic accent curving through it. In addition, smooth contours and defined fenders complete the CR-V’s look.

Features

You will not be disappointed with the equipment in either of these crossovers. These are two-row models that come with Honda Sensing technologies and many other shared features. For example, both models are available with leather upholstery, an upgraded sound system, smart device integration, satellite radio, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a sunroof, heated front seats, and a keyless engine starter. If you opt for the CR-V, your Honda crossover may also come with wireless phone charging, a power liftgate, and an integrated navigation system.
